  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (20)

    • Mr. Burns: Rant on, Simpson. But your vainglorious boasting will only add savor to my inevitable triumph. Homer: (very confused) Yes.

    • Marge: I have to alter my suit so it looks different for tomorrow. Homer: Just slap some bumper stickers on it and come to bed, will you, Marge?

    • Elizabeth: Well played Marge. We would have won if you would have changed to a different suit. Susan: I thought changing suits had gone out of fashion, eh Marge?

    • Marge: I'll be there with bells on. Susan: Bells? Where exactly will you be attaching them to that tattered Chanel suit? Evelyn: Don't worry, Marge. Her idea of wit is nothing more than an incisive observation humorously phrased and delivered with impeccable timing.

    • Evelyn: Marge, you look nothing like the girl I knew nothing about in high school.
