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…
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…
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.
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.
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.
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.
