Homer: D'oh...! Oh, okay.
Lisa: "Meditations on Turning Eight", by Lisa Simpson. [reads] "I had a cat named Snowball. / She died, she died! / Mom said she was sleeping. / She lied, she lied! / Why oh why is my cat dead? / Couldn't that Chrysler hit me instead? / I had a hamster named Snuffy. / He died--"
Homer: [takes his form] No deal!Doctor: Mrs. Simpson, I'm sorry, but your husband suffers from a persecution complex, extreme paranoia, and bladder hostility.
Marge: Doctor, if you just talk to him for five minutes without mentioning our son Bart, you'd see how sane he is.

Homer: Who are you?
"Michael Jackson": Hi. I'm Michael Jackson from the Jacksons.
Homer: I'm Homer Simpson from the Simpsons!

Homer: Of course I've heard of you! Of course, you'd have to be living under a rock... What'd you say your name was?

Homer: Wow! How'd you do that thing with your feet?
"Michael": You mean, the moonwalk?
Homer: No. That thing with your feet.
"Michael": [Demonstrating] Just raise your heel a little. Put a little pressure on the ball of your foot.

Bart: That's right! Hope you like your present! [He dumps trash out of her wastebasket, puts on his red cap, and turns to "Michael," sitting at the piano] And a one! And a two! And a one, two, three, four! [He taps the bottom of the wastebasket like a bongo drum]
"Michael": [Singing] Lisa, it's your birthday. God bless you this day. You gave me the gift of a little sister and I'm proud of you today.
Bart and "Michael": Lisa, it's your birthday. Happy birthday, Lisa. Lisa, it's your birthday. Happy birthday, Lisa.

Leon Kompowsky: [In his real voice] Well, my work here is done.
Bart: Hey, Michael! What happened to your voice?
Leon: This is my real voice. My name is Leon Kompowsky and I'm a bricklayer from Patterson, New Jersey. All my life, I was very angry. Till one day, I just... [In Michael Jackson's voice] ...talked like this. [Normal voice] All of a sudden, everybody was smilin' at me and I was only doin' good on this earth. So I kept on doing it. To make a tired point, which one of us is truly crazy?
Homer: Not me! I've got this! [Shows his certificate, reading "Not insane"]

=== When Flanders Failed ===
Homer: Stupid family going to stupid Flanders' stupid barbecue. What if they got back and I was dead from not eating? Then they'd be sorry. They'd say, "Oh no, why did we go to Flanders barbecue? Why did we leave Homer all alone without any food?" And I'd be laughing. Laughing from my grave. Heh heh heh.Flanders: In times like these, I used to turn to the Bible for solace, but even the Good Book can't help me now.
Homer: Why not?
Flanders: I sold it to you for seven cents.
Homer: Oh. (sees Ned crying) Ned, I am sorry your store did not work out.
Ned Flanders: No, Homer, you were right!
Homer: Wait. I was?
Ned Flanders: Yes! You tried to warn me against engaging in risky ventures! I should have known better than to gamble my family's future on some pig in a poke! You were an honest friend to me, and I appreciate that.
Homer: Oh, thank you, Ned! I'm so sarcastic!Mr. Burns: [using a left-handed can opener] The worm has turned, has it not, my tin-plated friend? Look at you! You were once so proud. Now feel the wrath of the left hand of Burns!Flanders: Homer, affordable tract housing made us neighbors, but you made us friends.

Mr. Burns: [sarcastically] Oh hot dog! Thank you for making my last few moments on Earth socially awkward.


=== Like Father, Like Clown ===
Krusty: [voice-over] My father was the most respected person in the Lower East Side of Springfield. People would come for miles around to ask his advice.

Jewish Woman: Rabbi, should I have another child?
Rabbi Krustofski: Yes. Another child would be a blessing on your house.
Jewish Man: Rabbi, should I buy a Chrysler?
Rabbi Krustofski: Could you rephrase that as an ethical question?
Jewish Man: Um... is it right to buy a Chrysler?
Rabbi Krustofski: Oh, yes! For great is the car with power steering and dyna-flow suspension.[Lisa tries one last tack in convincing Rabbi Krustofski to reconcile with Krusty]

Mr. Burns: Very well. [to the screen.] Eeny, meeny, miny... [sees Homer sleeping on his workplace.] Blugh! Him!
Smithers: [on the speaker] Attention, Homer Simpson. Attention, Homer Simpson. [Homer doesn't wake up.] Wake up, Homer!

Homer: [as Burns sews the top of his head back on] Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.
Mr. Burns: Oh, will you quit your complaining!
Smithers: Sir, do you know what this means? He is alive!

Smithers: Run, sir!
[The robot lands on Burns, crushing him save for his head]
Mr. Burns: Every bone... shattered, organs... leaking vital fluids... a slight headache... loss of appetite. Smithers, I'm going to die.
Smithers: [distraught] Sir, is there nothing I can do?
Mr. Burns: Well... perhaps. Smithers, go to my office. In the third drawer of my desk are... surgical tools... and some ether.
[Homer wakes up screaming]
Marge: Did you have a nightmare, Homey?
Homer: No, Bart bit me.
Bart: Hey, man, you were crushing me. [to Marge and Lisa] I tried to scream, but my mouth was full of flab.
Homer: Hey, got to go shake the dew off the lily.
[Homer walks into bathroom and looks in the mirror, to find Burns' head sewn onto his left shoulder]
Homer: Aaaah!!!
Mr. Burns: Perhaps you're wondering why you have two heads. Well, my body was crushed, so I had my head grafted onto your, shall we say, ample frame.
Homer: [trying to stay calm] I can wake up! It's all a dream! It's just a dream!
Mr. Burns: Oh, that's right! It's all a dream... [fade to black] ...or is it? [laughs evilly]

Maybe you can call to a bar in Los Angeles, California run by a female bartender.Bart: (Groaning)
Marge: Bart, are you making another thread to Nelson.....again?!

Mr. Burns: What makes a man endanger his job and... yes, even his life, by asking me for money?

Herb: [hugging them] Bart! Lisa! I'm so glad to see you!
Homer: [rubbing his cheek] You weren't so glad to see me...
Herb: I'm sorry, Homer, but I'm still mad at you. Every word you say makes me want to punch you in the face.
Homer: Well, while you're a guest in my home, could you just kick me in the butt?
Herb: I'll try, but I'm not making any promises!Herb: Now I bet you're all wondering what lies under this sheet.
Bart: Not really.  We snuck a peek while you were in the john.
Herb: Oh... Well, here it is again: my baby translator!
[He pulls away the sheet, revealing a none-too-impressive device]
Marge: Ooooooh…
Herb: Marge, you don't have to humor me.
Marge: Well, it's pretty ingrained...
Herb: What do you think, Homer?
Homer: Herb, this is the stupidest thing I've ever seen! I can't believe we blew 2,000 bucks on it, when right now rollers could be kneading my buttocks!
Herb: Homer, could you stop thinking about your ass?!
Homer: I try, but I can't...
