What are your favorite Simpsons moments?

“Thank you for asking. Now, Homer, as you no doubt recall, you were done a favor by our, uh, how shall I say . . . Mafia Crime Syndicate.”

“Oh, yeah.”

“Now the time has come for you to do us a favor.”

“You mean the mob only did me a favor to get something in return? Oh, Fat Tony! I will say Good Day to you, sir.”

So much to choose from, but I’ve got to go with this sequence:

It really packs so much of what’s great about the Simpsons in so little time.

“Eastern Europe’s favorite cat and mouse team…Worker and Parasite!”

I don’t know why i find this so hysterical…but I do.

The pool episode where broken leg Bart’s going crazy, and making Lisa listen to his play.

Shock Therapy: “Okay, you want to kill each other. That’s good, that’s healthy!”

Cant believe there isn’t a clip for this one…

At the marriage retreat:

Reverend Lovejoy: Ned, Maude, what brings you here?
Ned: Well… sometimes God bless her, she underlines passages in my Bible because she can’t find hers!
Homer: Oh, lucky you don’t keep guns in the house.
Reverend Lovejoy: Homer, why are you here?
Homer: Oh, because I got drunk and looked down her dress!

Watching the Thanksgiving Day parade:

So much of that show is the voice actor delivery. Dan Castellaneta is a treasure.

That whole episode, man.

Not wishing to beat a dead horse, but DC is brilliant here:

Curtis E. Bear


One of my all-time favorite “bait-and-switch” jokes:

How can I pick a moment?!?
“Ow, my eye! I’m not supposed to get pudding in it.”
“SuperNintendo Chalmers”
“Eh, I could pull a better cartoon out of my aa…hh–hey, Whoa! Wasn’t that great, kids?”

A lot of those reading this thread will get a kick out of this New Yorker interview article with John Swartzwelder, the famously reclusive golden-era Simpsons writer. It was just published a few days ago. That ‘seat on the space shuttle’ remark, what a piece of work:

(I had to try a few browsers to get it to work)

So many. I will just list a few quotes.

  1. “I was saying Boo-urns.”
  2. “You don’t win friends with salad.”
  3. “My eyes! The googles - they do nuthink.”
  4. “I call the big one Bitey.”
  5. “Everyone loves rats. So why not their milk?”
  6. “I would kill everyone in this room for a drop of sweet beer.”
  7. “Save me, Jeebus.”
  8. “Disco Stu don’t advertise.”
  9. “Wait! There is still more dust on this space cookbook!”
  10. “My name is Otto! I like to get blotto!”
  11. “Don’t blame me. I voted for Kudos.”
  12. “… Your drug keeper-awayer…”
  13. “Does this sound like a man who has had all that he could eat?”
  14. “The ring came off my pudding can!”
  15. “My son is ALSO named Bort.”
  16. “Apu, gimme a squishee! One made entirely out of syrup!”
  17. “My English is inelegant. Your beer, it tastes like swill to us. Is that right?”
  18. “Four finger discount!”

Me fail English? That’s unpossible!

I’m actually speaking Rigilian…

Remembered another one: James Taylor singing Fire and Rain.

And seeing Ralph, one short clip gives two classic lines: “I bent my wookie” and “My cat’s breath smells like cat food.” (And features Winona Ryder.)

Okay, who spots the continuity error?

Am I allowed to mention that I’ve written a book which features Q&A’s with Simpsons writers James L. Brooks, Mike Reiss, Al Jean, and Jay Kogen? A lot of great behind-the-scenes stuff! It’s on Amazon. :slight_smile:

What continuity error? The blank blackboard after Bart returns his test and collapses?? That’s all I can spot.

Some years ago, I bought a 2012 Chevy Tahoe. When my friends saw it, they started singing the “Canyonero” jingle. My vehicle has been known as “the Canyonero” ever since.
