    • Skinner: I hope you're ready for mouth watering hamburgers!
      Chalmers: I thought we were having steamed clams?
      Skinner: Oh no, I said steamed hams. That's what I call hamburgers.
      Chalmers: You call hamburgers "steamed hams"?
      Skinner: Yes. It's a regional dialog.
      Chalmers: Uh… what region?
      Skinner: Uuuh. Upstate New York.
      Chalmers: Really? Well I'm from Utica and I've never heard anyone use the phrase "steamed hams".
      Skinner: Oh not in Utica, no, it's an Albany expression.
      Chalmers: Uh I see. You know these hamburgers are quite similar to the ones they have at Krusty Burgers.
      Skinner: Hohohoho. No. Patented Skinner Burgers. Old family recipie.
      Chalmers: For… steamed hams.
      Skinner: Yes.
      Chalmers: Yes, and you call them steamed hams despite the fact they are obviously grilled.
