Who is your favorite Springfield resident and what's your fave phrase?

I’m wondering what Springfield resident you like the best.
I’m also wondering what your all time favorite saying is. You can pick a few but number them. YOUR FAV PHRASE DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THE CHARCHTER YOU LIKE THE BEST.

Probably Moleman.

“The PTA has disbanded!”

Bleeding Gums Murphy.

“Homercles cares not for beans!”

Dr Nick Riviera

“Did you go to Hollywood Upstairs Medical College too?”

Ralph Wiggum

“Me fail English? That’s unpossible!”

“I’ll be in my room.”

Fave character? Hm. It’s gotta be Homer.

Agnes Skinner

‘Larry Flynt is right!’ - Homer backs up Stephen Hawking


“Nice park job, Homer!”

And the eternal best, “Release the hounds.”

Sideshow Bob

Homer: “Ah, the Luftwaffe; the Washington Generals of the History Channel.”

Disco Stu

“Sometimes the only way you can feel good about yourself is by making someone else look bad. And I’m tired of making other people feel good about themselves.”

Theodore Geisel was born and raised in Springfield, Massachusetts. I cannot pick out a single favourite quote from his writings as “Dr Suess” as he was so prolific.

I’ve wished for years that Cleatus and Brandine could have their own spin off show.
“Look! we can have indoor plum’n just like theys got in that ladies prison.”

“They’ve changed you Brandine. Sometimes I feel like I don’t even know you anymore.”


“Everything’s coming up Milhouse”

Hmm. “The PTA has disbanded” is still my favorite, but quite often I do find myself breathing “Excellent” while drumming my fingers together.

Favorite character is Homer, handsdown.

My favorite quote is from what I think is one of the various future Lisas where she turns white (yellow?) trash and has gotten extremely big.

“Kids! Go get mama her warshin’ stick!”

My mother (and I) have always struggled with our weight, and though she is not a giant fan of the Simpsons, she remembers that ep and that line and will yell it whenever she’s feeling she’s gotten really heavy.

I don’t think he’s a resident, but for sentimental reasons I’m picking Howell Huser.

Fave phrase: gotta go with "HA-ha!"

Prof. Frink is my favorite: “Stay calm Frinky. These babies
will be in the stores while he’s still grappling with
the pickle matrix!”

Other favorites from Homer:

“You don’t win friends with salad”

“I am so smart! S-M-R-T!”

No one favorite, several of my faves already noted. I’ll add “Quick! Give me the number for 9-1-1!”

“The PTA has disbanded”

A couple of people cite this phrase - it’s the only quote here I cannot bring to mind at all.

Not sure I have a favorite character, but my all-time favorite quote is from Ralph Wiggums:

“My cat’s breath smells like cat food.”

The only other quote that comes close for me is situational, and needs to be heard because the tone and inflection are important:

“I… don’t know.”

See, all by itself that’s not funny, but in the scene it’s AWESOME. I’ll spoiler the dialogue, in case anyone wants to try and guess where it’s from:

Well, my SD handle aside (because Kent Brockman never actually said it) it would have to be Groundskeeper Willie teaching French class:

"Bon jourrrrrrrrrrrrr, ya cheese-eatin’ surrender monkeys!!"

During the invasion of Iraq The New York Post even used this in a disparaging headline regarding France!
