Favorite simpsons character

Since reading the death on the thread, I thouhgt,
“hmmmmm, who is my favorite?”
I picked Apu, and it was close between him and homer, and then barny.
The clincher was the time Homer was going to feed a peanut to Apu’s statue of an elephant goddess.
“Oh, homer, please not to be feeding a peanut to the deity of my choice, sir.” Apu said in a great accent
That was hilarious.

how did it start? well i don’t know i just feel the craving. i see the flesh and it smells fresh and it’s just there for the taking…

I gotta go with Willie.
“And that’s how Willie waters.”

Of course Homer is the king, but he is second for me

“The idea of a walk-in closet sounds frightening. If I’m ever sittin’ at home and a closet walks in, I’m gettin’ outta there.” ~George Carlin

My vote goes to Ralph Wiggum. He has some of the best lines ever.
“That’s the rock where I saw the leprechaun. He tells me to burn things.”
“My cat’s breath smells like cat food.”
“I saw Principal Skinner and Miss Krabapple making a baby in the closet, and I saw the baby, and he smiled at me.”
There are so many more… :slight_smile:

I told you not to be stupid, you moron.

The above quotes are from memory, and since it’s a quarter past two, they might not be so accurate. Sorry :slight_smile:

I told you not to be stupid, you moron.

Willie is great :
“Nothing outruns a greased scotsman !”

Ralph is too :
“My cats breath smells like cat food.”

Whatever happened to those two German kids ?
“Do not chase me, I am full of chocolate !”

For my money though, I gotta go with Itchy and Scratchy - the best damned cartoon within a cartoon I have ever seen.

“A single lifetime, even though entirely devoted to the sky, would not be enough for the investigation of so vast a subject.” - Seneca

oops sorry for the rip-off Blue

Homer is the king, but I am torn between Dr, Nick and Troy McClure. They both may be side characters, but I love their input into any episode. But if I had to pick one, look at my sig…

The most rewarding part was when I got my money!
-Dr. Nick Riviera

i dont have just one:

Mr. Burns

Captian McAllister-

“This porn will keep my crew away from homosexuality for at least…15 minutes”

“In that case, have you got any spare change”

I know he’s a minor character, but he is really funny.

Also, The characters voiced by the late great Phil Hartman, Troy McLure and Lionel Hutz.

I like Gil, the guy who’s been a used car salesman(I just had 2 payments left on that hot plate!), doorbell salesman, Kwikee Mart janitor, and other equally pathetic jobs. Poor Gil cracks me up every time.

Um. Let me see here, I’m not sure. I’ll get back to you on that one.

Side Show Bob.

I don’t know why, but the quality of the writing in the Bob episodes is always superior to the rest. Kelsey Grammer should just quit that other show and devote himself to a Simpsons spinoff.

Moe and his pathetic life are always good for a laugh or two.

Well I’m better than dirt. Well, most kinds of dirt. Not that fancy dirt, that stuff’s loaded with nutrients. I can’t compete with that stuff.

The best one is the lie detector test…
Police: Do you hold a grudge against Montgomery Burns?
Moe:No (bzzz). All right, maybe I did, but I didn’t shoot him (ding)
Police: Checks out. OK sir, you’re free to go.
Moe: Good, cuz I got a hot date tonight (bzzz), a date (bzz), dinner with friends (bzz), dinner alone (bzz), watching TV alone (bzz). Awright!! I’m gonna sit at home and ogle the ladies in the Victoria Secrets catalog (Bzzz). Sears catalog. (ding) Now would you unhook this already please, I don’t deserve this kind of shabby treatment (bzzz).

Have you voted for your favorite, huggable Mullinator today?

No question about it: Cletus the Slack-jawed yokel rocks on! Disco Stu. is a close second.
I’d like to see episodes centered on these characters. They may be too one-dimensional for that to work… I am very surprised we have yet to have seen an episode centered on Groundskeeper Willy. There is certainly enough in his character to carry it off.

Sweet Basil

Any scene with interaction between Mr. Burns and Smithers. Those two are funny as hell.

On the dock, two of the crude and uncouth sailors (``Aarrr!’’) attempt to stare each other down. Mr. Burns turns to Smithers.

Burns: What do you think, Smithers?
Smithers: I think women and sea-men don’t mix.
Burns: We know what you think!

Hey, if it ain’t broke, give ME a shot at it.

Gimme Fat Tony and a video copy of GoodFellas!

“How do you know you don’t like bribes if you’ve never taken one?”

“My wife has been very vocal about the pretzel monies.”

…and, of course, all characters voiced by the late great Phil Hartman: Lionel Hutz, Troy McClure, The Monorail guy…

My fate keeps getting in the way of my destiny.

Oh, I love Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel, too!

And am I the only one who yells, “Hi, Dr. Nick!” out loud? Please tell me no . . .

I’d have to go with either Cletus, (my life is full of slack-jawed yokels…) or Lionel Hurz. I miss Lionel popping up whenever tragedy struck.

As for a favorite quote, for some the episode where Selma takes the kids to Duffland (ville?) comes to mind. When Lisa, tripped out on the “It’s a Small World” ride water, screams “I AM the Lizard QUEEN!” I loose it every time.

Habit rules the unreflecting herd. - Wordsworth

Don’t worry, Eve, it’s not just you. Heck, I even do Dr. Nick’s spiel while imitating his voice.

I love the Comic Book Guy. His voice cracks me up, and like Ralphie, each line is usually hilarious.

Quote from memory “That was the worst episode ever! Needless to say I was on the internet at alt.nerds.obsessive in minutes telling of my disgust!”

Did anyone catch last Sunday’s episode where they get a horse? Comic book guy comes up and says to Marge “The Simpson’s already got a horse, Homer had to work at the Quick E Mart, and hilarities ensued”

Then, Marge starts gambling on the horse races, Lisa’s afraid Marge has a gambling problem, and again Comic Book Guy appears from nowhere saying “Marge already had a gambling problem at Mr Burns’ casino” and he was wearing a “Worst Episode Ever!” shirt.

Trying is the first step to failure
