When Smithers was helping him get something to eat out of a can that wouldn't open:
Smithers "Would you like me to order some Chinese, sir?"
Burns "No, those people are all Gristle."


Hah!

Mr. Burns:
Smithers, do you think maybe my power plant killed those ducks?

Smithers:
There's no 'maybe' about it, sir.

Mr. Burns
(wiping a tear from his eye)
Excellent...

This anonymous clan of slack-jawed troglodytes has cost me the election, and yet if I were to have them killed, I would be the one to go to jail. That's democracy for you.

If it's a crime to love one's country, then I'm guilty! And if it's a crime to steal a trillion dollars, then I'm guilty of that too! And if it's a crime to bribe a jury, then I'll soon be guilty of that too!

After someone comments the greatness of the just concluded boxing match:
"Oh, hogwash! Why, I once watched Gentleman Jim Corbett fight some Eskimo fellow bare-knuckled for a hundred and fifteen rounds! Of course, back then if a fight lasted less than fifty rounds, we demanded our nickel back.*

That's sort of becoming a running joke. In a recent episode he says, "We might get stung by a bumbled bee."

And I don't know if it's an exact quote but it sounds like something he'd say and I like to use around the office: "I'm tired of your nincompoopery!"

"Your job and the future of your family hinges on your successful completion of Nuclear Physics 101. Oh, and one more thing - you must find the jade monkey....before the next full moon...

Actually sir, we found the jade monkey, it was in your glove compartment.

And the road maps? And ice scraper?

They were in there too.

Excellent! It's all falling into place..."

---------------------------------------

"'It was the best of times, it was the Blurst of times?!! You stupid monkey!!!"

"Uh, sir, you have to let go of the button."

"Oh, son of a----"

Lisa: "Does your plant have a recycling program?"

Burns: "Reeeee-cyyyyyyy-cling?? [Brain scans dicrionary...] He heh - I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that term."

Lisa (something about Mother Nature, can't remember)

Burns: "Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well, maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing? Well, I say 'Hard cheese!'"

Lisa: "But nature's not our enemy."

Burns: "Well, surely you agree we can do without her."

Lisa: "No, I don't agree."

Burns: "Heh heh...shutup little girl."

------------------------------------------

"Look at them all, through the darkness I'm bringing - they're not sad at all - they're actually singing!...they sing without juicers...they sing without blenders....
they sing without flundgers, cap-dabbulers and smandlers!"

These are Excellent! My favorite tho is MB's as a straightman (so to speak)

Burns: So another Friday is upon us. What will you be doing this weekend, Smithers? Something gay, no doubt.

Smithers: Wha - what?

Burns: You know, lighthearted, fancy-free, mothers lock up your daughters, Smithers is on the town.

Smithers: Exactly, sir.
---------
If that is cheating then these are Burns being funny

Burns: Quick Smithers. Bring the mind eraser device!

Smithers:You mean the revolver, sir?

Burns: Precisely.

or

Burns: I'll keep it short and sweet -- Family. Religion. Friendship. These are the three demons you must slay if you wish to succeed in business.

Addressing the workers at the power plant

"Gentlemen! It is imperative that we crush the rebels before the start of the rainy season! And a shiny new donkey for whoever brings me the head of Colonel Montoya."

Smithers hastily whispers something in Burns' ear.

"Oh! And by that I mean it's time to choose the employee of the month!"

Burns gets a left handed can-opener and mocks the can of cat-food that had so frustrated him

"Ah, the worm has turned, has it not, my tin-plated friend?
Look at you, you were once so proud. Feel the wrath of
the left hand of Burns!"

Burns: I've always felt that there's far too much hysteria these days about so-called cheating. If you can take advantage of a situation in some way, it's your duty as an American to do it. Why should the race always be to the swift or the jumble to the quick-witted? Should they be allowed to win merely because of the gifts God gave them? Well, I say cheating is the gift man gives himself!

Homer: Mr. Burns, I insist that we cheat.

Burns: Excellent.

****

Burns: Ah, my beloved plant, how I've missed her. Bah, to hell with this! Get my razors! Draw a bath! And get these Kleenex boxes off my feet!

Smithers: Certainly, sir. And the jars of urine?

Burns: Oh, we'll hang on to those.


****

"You idiot! Homer Simpson doesn't say 'B'oh!", he says..." [flips through very thick script] "D'oh! Get it right!"

Burns (upon wanting to be loved like a Richard Branson tycoon) to Homer:

Burns: You, feedbag. I want you to love me.

Homer: I'm going to need some beer.

To Rodney Dangerfield:

A Broadway play about a doll? How proposterous. Next thing you know, you'll tell me there's a play about the common housecat, or the king of Siam.

And it's "Like my loafers..."

"This house has quite a long and colorful history. It was built on an ancient Indian burial ground, and was the setting of Satanic rituals, witch-burnings, and five John Denver Christmas specials."

Burns: "Nonsense! Dogs are idiots! Think about it, Smithers. If I came into your house and started sniffing at your crotch and slobbering all over you, what would you say?"

Oh, Tuttle's Sunday trousers. Fear not, I'll get you to a hospital -- the only way I know how. Smithers, you infernal ninny, stick your left hoof on that flange, now! Now, if you can get it through your bug-addled brain, jam that second mephitic clodhopper of yours on the right doodad! Now pump those scrawny chicken legs, you stuporous funker!
