    I sometimes find myself thinking about some of the smaller, more subtle things The Simpsons has done.

    This one, specifically the guy in the letterman jacket's "Pardon me?" after Homer's long speech on how college works
    Sorry it's not in English:


    I also loved the time they did the old newspaper spin and it ended on "Dick Cavett Born" with a picture of an adult Dick Cavett:guffaw:

    Also Barney's bar fight with Wade Boggs over England's greatest prime minister in Homer at the Bat. So random. :lol:

    The Great Wide Somewhere
    "Ahh! Cobras!"

    Tall man in tiny car.

    "Linguo. . . Dead?"

    "Hmm… Abortions for some, miniature American flags for others!"

    "The car won’t start. I don’t feel very good today. I am at work."

    "Blecch! Ew! Sheesh! I’ll take a crab juice."

    Guy on a penny-farthing kicks homer as he opens the door.

    And of course nearly everything Ralph said for the first ten years of the show:

    "Mrs. Krabappel and Principal Skinner were in the closet making babies and I saw one of the babies and the baby looked at me!"

    "Smell ya later, Bart. Smell ya later forever."

    "This is my swing set. This is my sandbox. I'm not allowed to go in the deep end. That's where I saw the leprechaun!"
    "Right, a leprechaun."
    "He told me to burn things."

    "They taste like burning."

    "Daddy! This tastes like grandma."

    "Sleep! Thats where I'm a viking!"

    Ouch! Forgotten already? You were just down ther
    One moment that has especially stuck with my mother over the years was from when Bart pranked the school by repainting all of the parking space lines so that they were closer together. Milhouse merely responds, "I fear to watch, yet I cannot turn away."

    "'Guys like me'? I'm a guy like me!"

    "Come on, kids. Lets go home."
    "We are home."
    "That was fast."

    "Sir, it's a felony to tease the order box."

    "Who names these foods?"
    "Old sitcom writers who work in the cafeteria."
    "On Charles in Charge, we only had one rule: Charles must always be in charge."

    "Look at these bills. Chains for elephant. Shots for elephant. Oversize decorative poncho!?"
    "Technically it's for a giraffe, but I think I can let it out a little."
    "Well you're going to be paying these bills out of your allowance."
    "You'll have to raise my allowance to about a thousand dollars a week."
    "Then that's just what I'll do!"

    "He called you a bad father."
    "Marge, when kids say 'bad,' they mean 'good.' And to 'shake your booty' means to 'wiggle one's butt.' Permit me to demonstrate."

    "Think not sexy thoughts."

    Agreed. I loved the subtle, right leaning political humor of the early years.

    "Do you know what a baby is saying when it reaches for its bottle?"
    "It's saying, 'I am a leech!' Here we try to nurture the bottle within."

    Or from the episode where Bart & Lisa became Itchy & Scratchy writers but put Grampa's name on the scripts.
    "Didn't you wonder why you kept getting checks for no reason?"
    "I figured it was because the Democrats were in power again."

    "So I hear we're going to Giant Ape Island."
    "I wish we were going to Candy Apple Island."
    "Candy Apple Island, what do they have there?"
    "Apes. But they're not so big."

    Pre-2000 Simpsons is amazing stuff. My friends and I still quote Homer's brain often.

    Homer: "Aww, 20 dollars, I wanted a peanut!"
    Homer's Brain: "20 dollars can buy many peanuts."
    Homer: "Explain!!"
    Homer's Brain: "Money can be bartered for goods and services."

    In the Before Time - the Long, Long Ago
    Linguo is dead. :)

    One of my all-time favorites is in the episode Lisa the Tree Hugger....

    Homer: You want money? Get a job like your old man!
    Bart: Well, maybe I should.
    Homer: Oh, so now you're smarter than your old man, eh?
    Bart: I guess.
    Homer: I like your attitude! Take what you need!
    (Homer opens his wallet for Bart but it's completely empty.)

    "To save money, I'm going to start smoking, and then quit smoking."
    "I'm proud of you, boy. Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things to do. Here's a dollar."
    "But he didn't do anything!"
    "Didn't he, Lisa? Didn't he? ...Hey, wait, he didn't!"

    "I warned you! Didn't I warn you? That colored chalk was forged by Lucifer himself!"

    "One trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere. Like the one time I caught the ferry to Shelbyville..."

    Your cable TV is experiencing difficulties. Please, do not panic. Resist the temptation to read, or talk to loved ones. Do not attempt sexual relations, as years of TV radiation have left your genitals withered and useless.
    "Well I'll be damned."

    "I'm pulling an all-nighter for my little girl! Marge, put on a pot of coffee, drink it, and start flipping burgers!"

    "I'm jealous of girls, 'cause they get to wear dresses."
    "... One problem at a time, boy."

    Simpson, Homer Simpson!
    He's the greatest guy in history!
    From the
    Town of Springfield!
    He's about to hit a chestnut tree!

    "Smithers, it appears the Pawnee are returning. Probably want their souls back."

    Dear Marge,

    How are you? I am fine. The waves here are way bigger than the ones at home, and the saltwater is rising. What's next, pepperwater? Ha-ha.

    Love ya,
    Homer Simpson

    Ralph: Hell Super Nintendo Chalmers

    I can't remember the episode but another one is when Homer sends an angry letter or something to Mr. Burns, so he goes to the post office and pretends to be Mr. Burns. The post office clerk asks him what his first name is and Homer just says "I don't know" and backs away slowly.

    T minus five seconds and counting. When the bells ring, the
    students stream out the doors, but before they can disappear for
    good, a teacher properly concludes their education.

    Teacher: Wait a minute! You didn't learn how World War II ended!
    Class: [pause their celebration, awaiting the answer]
    Teacher: We won!
    Class: Yay! U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
