Homer edit

  • [whips dogs while using them for dog-sledding] Run! Run! Run! Run! Run! Run! [jumps from one slope to the other side] Jump! Jump! Land! Land! [while dogs rest] Rest! Rest! [while dogs running again] Run! Run! [after stopping for the night] Now I know we've had a rough day, but I'm sure we can put all that behind us and just- [the dogs maul him] That's my whipping arm! [the dogs abandon him] Oh, why does everything I whip leave me?
  • [sings while playing with his pig]
Spider Pig. Spider Pig.
Does whatever a Spider Pig does.
Can he swing from a web?
No, he can't. He's a pig.
Look out!
He is a Spider Pig.

Lisa edit

  • [Lisa has a girl talk with Marge about Colin] I still haven't told you the best part! He cares about the environment! No! I still haven't told you the best part! He's got an [with a heavy Irish accent] Irish brogue! [In normal voice] No, wait, I still haven't told you the best part! He's not imaginary!

Mr. Burns edit

  • want some of my electricity, do you? Well, for once the rich white man is in control! I have two buttons behind this desk: one will supply your town with power, the other releases the hounds. Reach me. Make me your brother.

Professor Frink edit

  • [Springfield has been trapped inside a dome]
  • People! I have an important announcement. I have been working on a new acid-firing super-drill that can cut through anything. [Pointing] It's right there... just outside of the dome.

Dialogue edit

[The Simpsons are watching an Itchy & Scratchy movie at the cinema]
Homer: Boring!
Lisa: Dad, we can't see the movie!
Homer: I can't believe we're paying to see something we get on TV for free! If you ask me, everybody in this theater is a giant sucker... [turns to face the camera and points straight forward, referring to the viewer] Especially you!

[Fat Tony drags a bag towards the lake to get rid of it; feet are poking out of the top and it obviously contains a murder victim]
Wiggum: Sorry, no dumping in the lake.
Tony: Fine. I will go and put my [air quotes] "yard trimmings" in a car compactor. [leaves]
Lou: You know, Chief, I thought he had a dead body in there.
Wiggum: I thought that too, right up until he said "yard trimmings". You gotta learn to listen, Lou.

Cargill: [enters the Oval Office] President Schwarzenegger.
President: Ja, that is me.
Cargill: The pollution in Springfield has reached crisis levels.
President: Ach! Everything is "crisis this" and "end-of-the-world that"! No one opens with a joke! I miss Danny DeVito.
Cargill: You like jokes, huh? Well, stop me if you've heard this one. [holds up cage with the mutant squirrel with many eyes]
President: [gasp] Look at all those angry eyes and pointy teeth! It's like Christmas at the Kennedy Compound!
Cargill: You know, sir, when you made me head to the EPA, you were applauded for appointing one of the most successful men of the America to the least successful agency in government. And why did I take the job? 'Cause I'm a rich man, and wanted to give something back. Not the money, but something. So here's our chance to kick some ass for Mother Earth!
President: I'm listening.
Cargill: [gets out five files] Well, I've narrowed your choices down to 5 unthinkable options. Each will cause untold misery and-
President: [points to the third file] I pick number 3.
Cargill: You don't even wanna read 'em first?
President: I was elected to lead, not to read. Number 3!

EPA Soldier: I'm afraid we lost them, sir.
Cargill: Damn it! [throws the binoculars at the dome, but it bounces back and hits him in the face] Ow! Well, then you find 'em, and you get 'em back in the dome! And to make sure nobody else gets out, I want roving death squads around the perimeter 24-7! I want 10,000 tough guys, and I want 10,000 soft guys to make the tough guys look tougher! And here's how I want them arranged: tough, tough, soft, tough, soft, soft, tough, tough, soft, soft, tough, soft!
Soldier: Sir, I'm afraid you've gone mad with power.
Cargill: Of course I have. Have you ever tried going mad without power? It's boring, no one listens to you.

Cargill: [levels a shotgun at Homer and Bart] Hello, Homer.
Homer: So, we meet at last, whoever you are!
Cargill: There's a couple of things they don't teach you in Harvard Business School. One is how to cope with defeat; the other is how to handle a shotgun. I'm going to do both right now.
Bart: Wait! If you kill my dad, you'll never know where the treasure is buried.
Cargill: What treasure?
Lisa: The treasure of Imawiener.
Cargill: I'm a wiener?
Homer: Classic.
Cargill: Well, always leave them laughing. Goodbye, sir.
[As he is about to shoot Homer, a rock knocks Cargill out. We see Maggie up on the cliff]
Homer: [relieved] Maggie! What a great little accident you turned out to be!
[Maggie winks, does a hand gun gesture at Homer, and walks off]

[After the credits, the Squeaky-Voiced Teen is seen sweeping the theater floor]
Man: Assistant Manager isn't all it's cracked up to be. [pulls a wad of gum off his broom] Four years of film school for this?
