  • Quotes

    • Gibson: You want me to replace the villain with a dog? I mean nobody will know what's going on.
      Homer: They will if you set up that the dog is evil. All you do is have to show him doing this. (lowers eyelids and glances around in shifty-eyed fashion) The people will suspect the dog.
      Gibson: Maybe this wasn't a good idea, Homer. I'm sorry I dragged you out here. Let me pay your bus fare home.
      Homer: Uh, uh, uh. Now here's your biggest problem of all.
      Gibson: The filibuster scene? That was Jimmy Stewart's favorite.
      Homer: And it was fine for the 1930s; the country was doing great back then. Everyone was into talking. But now, in whatever year this is, the audience wants action. And seats with beverage holders. But mainly action.
      Gibson: You really think it's boring?
      Homer: Oh, Mel, it's the most boring piece of garbage I've ever seen. And it's not easy for me to say that.
      Gibson: Hmm. I guess it is a little flat. Okay, let's reshoot the ending. I'll call the hair and makeup ladies, and you see if the Teamsters will work for free.
      Homer: Piece of cake. Now where's that kid with my latte?
