  • Quotes

    • (The Singing Sirlion closes for the night, and the Simpsons leave after working off their bill. In the car, Marge and Maggie are up front, Homer is driving, Bart and Lisa are in back.)
      Marge: When did this happen? When did we become the bottom rung of society?
      Homer: I think it was when that cold snap killed off all the hobos.
      Lisa: Dad, what happened to the backseat?
      (The camera changes angles to show Bart and Lisa standing on rails, they're all that's keeping them from running on the street.)
      Homer: I sold it. I needed gas money.
      (The car slows to a stop. The gas tank is empty.)
      Homer: ...which I spent on a novelty horn.
      (He butts his head against the horn, triggering a horn that would lead to a 'CHARGE!!!' cry at a baseball game.)
