On with the show…
Hi, I’m Troy McLure, and you may know me from such driver’s ed films as “Alice’s Adventures through the Windshield Glass” and “The Decapitation of Larry Leadfoot”
Homer (to priest played by Liam Neeson): Hey, is it true that you priest guys can’t ever… er… y’know?Priest: Well, I have to admit that the vow of celibacy is one of our sterner challenges.Homer: Celibacy! I was talking about the meat on Friday thing! Man! You guys have more crazy rules than Blockbuster video…
Vicki [Lisa’s dance teacher and WWII child-star, addressing the class before a performance]: Okay, kids, tonight’s the big night! Now remember: the important thing is to just dance flawlessly.Lisa: Excuse me, why isn’t my name in the program?Vicki: It is, silly. You’ve got the most important part of all. [Flicks through the pamphlet]Lisa: Curtain puller!?!Vicki: No one can see the show if the curtain isn’t open.Lisa: Bu– my parents are counting on seeing me dance! And I’ve worked ever so hard.Vicki: I’m sorry, Lisa, but giving everyone an equal part when they’re clearly not equal is called what, again, class?Class: Communism!Vicki: That’s right. And I didn’t tap all those Morse code messages to the Allies ’til my shoes filled with blood to just roll out the welcome mat for the Reds.
Stage hand (walking into the backstage area of the Lolapalooza tour followed by four men in black ties): Who’s playing with the London Symphony Orchestra? Come on… People… Someone ordered the London Symphony Orchestra… Possibly while high… Cypress Hill, I’m looking in your direction.

Marge (on CB radio): Husband on murderous rampage. Send help… Over.Chief Wiggum: Whew, thank God that’s over… I was worried for a little bit.
Abe Simpson (reading from complaint letter): Dear Advertisers, I am disgusted with the way old people are depicted on television. We are not all vibrant, fun loving sex maniacs. Many of us are bitter, resentful individuals who remember the good old days when entertainment was bland and inoffensive. The following is a list of words I never want to hear on television again. Number one: bra. Number two: horny. Number three: family jewels.
Bart: I don’t know! I don’t know why I did it, I don’t know why I enjoyed it, and I don’t know why I’ll do it again!
Homer: Going ‘Cold Turkey’ is not as delicious as it sounds.

Belle & Dancers: Yes, we put the spring in Springfield
Belle: We’re that little extra spice that makes existence extra-niceA giddy little thrill at a reasonable price
Rev Lovejoy: Our only major quarrel’s with your total lack of morals
Dancer 1: Our skimpy costumes ain’t so bad
Dancer 2: They seem to entertain your dad
Belle & Dancers: The gin in your martini, the clams on your linguineYes, we keep the in Springfield
Wiggum, Krusty & Skinner: We remember our first visit
Mayor Quimby: The service was exquisite!
Mrs Quimby: Why, Joseph, I had no idea!
