Hehe. All I could see on the main page was "You don't make friends..." and I prayed "let it be salad, let it be salad"!

If this thread doesn't degenerate into anything better, I propose we all chime in with fave Simpson's quotes.

My favourite line was already quoted in the article: "To alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all lifes problems."

I'm actually a bit pissed at the Globe website. In the print edition there is a sidebar about "noted Canadians" and their thoughts on the Simpsons. Rick Mercer, who surely should receive an Order of Canada sometime soon, says his personal favourite episode is the one with Frank Grimes. Seth, apparently a cartoonist of some comic strip called Palookaville says his favourite is the lemon tree. Apparently on a road trip Mats Sundin bought a bunch of episodes which caused Tie Domi greif, as Domi is Albanian and one of the shows on the tape was the exchange student one. And, lastly, the other "noted" Canadian was Jack Layton. Apparently during the Kirkland Lake debate (Toronto wanted to ship it's garbage to a mine in northern Ontario) he showed a clip in council of the episode where Homer becomes Springfield's garbage guy.

I thought that was funny. Nor did I read that in the news.

Seth is rad, but I must disagree with him. While the lemon tree episode was among the greatest, the best episode ever: Clown College.

I do believe, though I may be a bit off, that there approximately 200+ "Best Simpsons' Episodes," with the remainder filed in the "Runner Up" category.

I can (and have, many times - oh, I know I should get a life, but...) have conversations lasting for hours, and involving only quotes from the Simpsons & their relevance to a particular topic.

IMHO, some of the funniest Simpsons moments are to be seen in the background - i.e the "Dodgers of Foreign Wars Museum" (I laughed 'til I peed with that one)

The "Best Episode", if such a distinction can or should be made, IMHO is the Behind the Laughter episode. Genius. Pure Genius. It was almost as if Conan was back on the writing staff.

quote:
Narrator: Before a riot could break out, Jimmy Carter came to the rescue with his comedy break dancing.
Carter: Got a brother named Billy. And my teeth look silly. Break it down, now.

quote:
Narrator: The dream was over. Coming up: Was the dream really over? Yes it was. Or was it?

I could have sworn that you didn't win friends with salad, but I could be wrong.

I am known as the queen of Simpson's trivia in some circles - endless hours can be spent this way, and have been, much to the chagrin of those around me.

And as a vegetarian, I've always liked the episode where one young activist says "I'm a level 5 vegan - I don't eat anything that casts a shadow." Heh heh heh.

swirrlygrrl - nicely done.

As politcal junkie I must admit my favourite episode is Sideshow Bob Roberts (when Sideshow Bob runs and wins the mayorality). The send up of Rush Limbaugh, named Birch Barlow ("author of the well selling book Only Turkies Have Left Wings") is too much.

I also like the episode where Homer eats the chili peppers. Some of the best animation ever seen on the show.

But I think the point is that it would be damn near impossible to pick a best ever.

A friend and I had a bit of a gigglefest at convention comparing Blaikie to Jasper. Can you not just picture him saying to the caucus (as he walks about in his Birks):

"Staring at my sandals, that's a paddlin'."

Though I'm not sure his beard is long enough to get caught in the pencil sharpener.

I agree that best episode ever status is difficult to assign, though my faves tend to be the Halloween specials (Kang and Kodos as Clin-ton and Dole being my personal fave), or the Bush episode (on occassion I have been known to tell people I am "fine and dandy, like sour candy.". Though Clinton's "I'm a pretty lousy president" cracks me up.) Damnit, they're almost all really good!

I dunno, in the last couple of years they have gone downhill significantly, in my own estimation. While there are still gags that will make me laugh, they have naither the frequency nor the intensity of previous years. And the writers seem to have lost the ability to structure an episode, often themselves throwing in a crack about how the show didn't make any sense.

Best episode - Bart sells his soul to Milhouse. "That's just something they made up to scare kids, like the boogie man, or Michael Jackson." The Clown College episode is a close second.

The unfortunately titled "Pukeahontas," I believe you are referring to. Also shown:

Hans Moleman presents: Man Getting Hit by Football (later remade by George C. Scott)

Senor Spielbergo (Steven's non-union Mexican equivalent)'s: A Burns for All Season

Apu Nahasapeemapetalon's: Bright Lights, Beef Jerky

And I can't remember off hand the name of Moe's film.

Classic scene in that episode:

Jay Sherman: How do you sleep at night?
McBain: On a big pile of money, with many beautiful ladies.
Sherman: Just checking!

Also by McBain: On closer inspection, these are loafers.

Also by McBain (different episode - the Radioactive Man movie one):

Speech coach: Up, and attem.
McBain: Up and at them!
SC: Up, and attem.
McBain: Up and at them!
SC: Up, and attem!
McBain: UP AND AT THEM!!!!
SC: (sigh) Better.

Oh, I could do this all day!

The Junior Campers.

On the Mr. Plow episode, I love the auto show's slogan:

"A salute to the American worker - now 61% drug free!"

Edited to add:

Of course, you have to love the tip on how to verify a $10,000 bill - all the presidents are on there; they're having a party.

Stonecutter song:

Who controls the British Crown?
Who keeps the metric system down?
We do, we do.
Who keeps Atlantis off the maps?
Who keeps the Martians under wraps?
We do, we do.
Who holds back the electric car?
Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star?

I have no idea why this is my favourite Simpsons quote ever, but it is: "Hey beardo, vote Quimby!"

And another classic:

SHOPKEEP: The doll is cursed.
HOMER: That's bad.
SHOPKEEP: But it comes with a free frogurt.
HOMER: That's good!
SHOPKEEP: The frogurt is also cursed.
HOMER: That's bad.
SHOPKEEP: But it comes with your choice of topping.
HOMER: That's good!
SHOPKEEP: The topping contains sodium benzoate.
HOMER: ...
SHOPKEEP: That's bad.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned the monorail episode:

"What about us drunken slobs?
You'll be given cushy jobs!
Is there a chance the track will bend?
Not on your life my hindu friend"

"So in conclusion, mono means one and rail means rail"

"Doughnuts, is there anything they can't do?"

And not to be forgotten is the cameo with Leonard Nimoy.

if i had to choose, I'd have to go with Marge's gambling addiction episode.

Maggie fends off an attack by Siegfield and Roys' tiger and Barney says: "Marge, your little boy Bart was almost eaten by a pony!"

And Burns, as Howard Hughes, hears the amoeba on his skin sing "The freemasons are running the country".

This particular episode, the teachers went on strike. The signs said "Honk if you like cookies!" and the people honked. Further in the episode, the school board decided to hire neighborhood folken to take the teachers place until the skirmish ended.

The medicinal marijuana episode was a veritable laugh riot. I especially enjoyed the brief "Bill Clinton" speech at the nuclear plant's shareholder's meeting:

"So, when someone asks me if I think I was a disgrace to the presidency, I tell them 'Depends on what the meaning of 'was' is, jerk.' You owe me two hundred thousand dolars."

quote:
Seth is rad, but I must disagree with him. While the lemon tree episode was among the greatest, the best episode ever: Clown College.

"Who am I clowning? I have no business being a clown. I'm leaving the clowning business to all the other clowns in the clowning business."

Oh and the "Requiem for a Dream" homage in the last episode (when Homer tries Krusty Burger ribwich) left me, quite literally, speechless.

From the episode where Homer the restaurant critic reviews the Sea Cap'n's restaurant:

quote:

McAllister: Lard ho! 'Tis a good sign; Homer's unfastened the top button on his pants.

Akira: Uh no, he's been walking around like that since Thanksgiving.

McAllister: I'm surprised he doesn't just give it up and go for sweatpants.

Akira: He says the crotch wears out too fast.

McAllister: Yar! That's going to replace the whale in my nightmares.

I guess I lied... my favorite episode was the one where George Bush (daddy) moved in across the street from the Simpsons... and Bart befriended the former Prez a la Dennis the Menace.

Homer: "Daddy! We're Home! It's Your sons, George Bush Junior, and Jeb Bush!!!"
Daddy: Bar, the boys are home... (opens the door) Boys, come on, where are you going???"

Homer then proceeds to pour super glue onto the former presidents head and attach a lovely, festive clown wig.

Later on at the Elks club meeting.....

Daddy: "Any questions now?"
All hands go up.
Daddy: "Keeping in mind that I already explained about my hair."
All hands go down.

And don't forget the presidential pyjamas....

When Clinton overrules the judges at the state fair and awards Springfield elementary the band competition award because the opposition used glow sticks in their performance:

Clinton: If you don't get what you want, just keep complaining until you do.
Marge: That's a pretty lousy message.
Clinton: I'm a pretty lousy president.

Lenny: How did you get REM to play in your garage?
Homer: (whispering) They think they're saving the rain forest!

The Lisa in university episode:

Ralph: Why do people run from me?
(large wet spot appears on the front of his pants)

And what I always think of when right wingers talk about the horrors of the Liberals:

Homer (while being whipped by space aliens after the human race has been enslaved):

Don't blame me - I voted for Kodos!

Hey can anyone help me identify this episode and what season it's from? The Simpsons family is at some tar pits (I don't remember too much of the story) and Homer gets his feet stuck in one of them. Marge is worried that he's going to sink all the way in, when Homer replies:

"That's okay, I'll just pull my legs out with my arms, and I'll pull my arms out with my face..."

At which point he plunges face first into the tar pit. I can't even write about it without lol. Can anyone please tell me which episode that's from, and maybe some more details about the story? I don't think I ever got to see the whole episode, or I just can't remember.

Thanks

Haha. Just saw a great one where Homer is remembering his repressed memories of finding Smithers dead father in a quarry as a child.

Set-up: Sitting around a campfire, the lads (Homer, Carl, Lenny & Moe as teens) are talking a la Stand By Me and Carl says "have you heard of the internet, it's this lining in swimming trunks". Then later, they're planning on diving into the quarry and Lenny says something like "I'm not diving in there, I'm too scared." At which Carl comes back with

I'm HOME!!
The previous posts validate my own obsession with The Simpsons. In my family, most of our dialogue ends up being quips from our favourite show. Each family member has his or her favourite character who we can imitate. I must admit that for doing impressions, Ralph Wiggum is my personal favourite: "My Daddy shoots people"... "You bent my Wookie".... "Dying tickles"... "Tastes like... burning" ... and my all time fabourite Ralph quip (or zen koan): "My cat's breath tastes like cat food." Peace.

Ralph: Mr. Army Man? I can't sleep without my Reggie Rabbit!
Skinner: Is that some sort of plush novelty?
Ralph: Yes ma'am.
Skinner: Uh, well here's a scouring pad, it's just as good.
Ralph: It's cold and hurty!

Or that one from when Homer tries to pretend to be Mr. Burns: "Hello, my name is Mr. Burns. I believe you have a letter for me..."
Mail guy: "Okay, Mr. Burns, what's your first name?"
Homer: "I....don't know...."

BEST EPISODE EVER .... the dental plan episode.

"lisa needs braces" "dental plan"

"why must you turn my office into a HOUSE of LIES?!!!" sez the sadistic dentist.

the negotiation scene - where Homer, the Union rep thinks Burns, who's trying to BRIBE him, is actually HITTING on him -

"Sorry, Mr. Burns. I don't go in for those backdoor shenanigans. Sure, I'm flattered. Maybe even a little curious. But the answer is 'no'."

... to Homer looking for the bathroom in Burns' mansion (23rd door on the left)

Burns:"Find the bathroom alright?"
Homer(uncertain)"uh...Yeah."

... to Homer doing the "whoo=whoo-whoo" Curly-dance, running in circles on the ground.

"Smithers, I don't think Homer Simpson was the negotiating genius we thought he was."

BEST EPISODE EVER!!!!!

Another fave bit - Comic Book Guy throwing out a stack of "She-Hulk vs. Leon Spinks" "WORST CROSSOVER EVER", he sighs.....

Incidentally, you most certainly DO NOT win friends with salad. Even vegetarians admit that salad is lame.

My favorite is the one where Homer makes a fake donation to PBS and as a result runs away to become a missionary in "Micronesia".

I loved that one!

"It's a beautiful day to KICK YOUR ASS!"

I was going to mention that line on the Mr. Rogers thread, but I thought it didn't quite fit the mood. I'll bet he laughed at it though.

Jesus, Allah, Buddah, I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!


Homer: "Oh, Jesus, what should I do??"
Marge: "Homer, that's not Jesus, that's a waffle that Bart threw up there last week!"
(Marge scrapes the waffle off of the ceiling with a broom stick, and it lands in Homer's waiting arms...)
Homer: "Oh, Lord, I know I shouldn't eat thee... (takes a bite) Mmmmm.... Sacralicious!"

Did anyone catch lastnight's episode about Krusty running for Congress? Oh man...absolutely brilliant. The whole Fox News swipe was awesome. As was:

Marge: "Quick! Someone perform CPR!"
Homer: "I see a bad moon risin'..."

That was such a great episode... especially because I had just finished reading an essay on Alusion in the Simpsons... and bam, so much in last nights episode, esp. all the references to previous shows... ahhhh the good old swear jar, one of my fav episodes!

Everyone who loves the Simpsons should pick up "The Simpsons and Philosophy: The D'Oh! Of Homer"... its a great read...
