Officer Eddie: (reading Steve Sax's license) Well well, Steve Sax, from New York City.
Officer Lou: I heard some guy got killed in New York City and they never solved the case. But you wouldn't know anything about that now, would you, Steve?
(Lou and Eddie laugh)
Steve Sax: But there are hundreds of unsolved murders in New York City.
Officer Lou: You don't know when to keep your mouth shut, do you, Saxxy Boy?

Shakes999: Every episode mentioned here is a classic except for everyone clamoring about the Frank Grimes episode. I simply do not understand the love its getting. It wasn't funny, it was depressing and just plain dumb. Really, your gonna say homers enemy is funnier than last exit to springfield?


Your comment is better read in an exasperated and incredulous Frank "Grimey" Grimes voice.

Grey Street: JesterJames: steamingpile: sugar

Marge: Homer, when are you going to give up this crazy sugar scheme?
Homer: Never, Marge! Never. I can't live the button-down life like you. I want it all: the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles. Sure, I might offend a few of the bluenoses with my cocky stride and musky odors -- oh, I'll never be the darling of the so-called "City Fathers" who cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about "What's to be done with this Homer Simpson?"

In America, first you get the sugar, then you get the power, then you get the women.


For some reason, his winking 'in the forest' part of his explanation to Marge where they got the sugar always cracks me up.

gunga galunga: ArgusRun: Also, Bart After Dark.

I'm partial to musical numbers.

Another great episode.

"If Homer Simpson's 10-year-old son want's to work in a burlesque house, the Homer Simpson's 10-year-old son gets to work in a burlesque house!"
(crowd disperses revealing Marge, who's furious)
"Now Marge, you're going to hear a lot of crazy talk about Bart working in a burlesque house."


Can we please not talk about S-E-X in front of the C-H-I-L-D-R-E-N?

Sex Cauldron?! I thought they shut that place down!!

Definetly a top 5'er but not the best.

/Scorpio!
He'll sting you with his dreams of power and wealth.
Beware of Scorpio!
His twisted twin obsessions are his plot to rule the world
And his employees' health.
He'll welcome you into his lair,
Like the nobleman welcomes his guest.
With free dental care and a stock plan that helps you invest!
But beware of his generous pensions,
Plus three weeks paid vacation each year,
And on Fridays the lunchroom serves hot dogs and burgers and beer!
He loves German beer!

/Jimbo Jones called for tripping

I'm going to start doing this with my arms, and if you get hit, it's all your fault.

Oh yeah? I'm going to start kicking air like this (huh), and if any part of you should fill that air, it's you're own fault.


Alright, pie. I'm going to start biting the air like this (chomp) and if you get eaten, it's your own fault!

(chomp, chomp, cho-CLANG!)

D'oh! AHHH! GAHH...oh, the hell with it.

dettigersnw22: I thought it was common knowledge that 'Last exit to Springfield' and 'You only move twice' were the top Simpsons episodes...


I may be splitting hairs between "best" and "most important" but I've always thought this is where the genius emerged:

Barney: How long is this going to take?
Bart: About twenty-two minutes and five seconds.

Well Mr. Burns had done it,
The power plant had won it,
With Roger Clemens clucking all the while,
Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile,
While Wade Boggs lay unconscious on the barroom tile...

We're talkin' softball...
From Maine to San Diego.
Talkin' softball...
Mattingly and Canseco.
Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw.
Steve Sax and his run-in with the law.
We're talkin' Homer... Ozzie and the Straw.
