(Maggie's name is misspelled on her birthday cake)
Marge: Homer, you didn't do a very good job frosting Maggie's birthday cake.
Homer: What? It's not Magaggie's birthday?
Troy McClure: Hello! I'm Troy McClure. You may remember me from such films as The Boatjacking of Supership 79 and Hydro: the Man With the Hydraulic Arms.
Patty: Hello, everyone except Homer.
Bart and Lisa: (Singing dull) Hot dogs, Armour Hot Dogs.
Grampa: Sing it like you mean it!
(Grampa plays harmonica and the kids sing it with style.)
Bart and Lisa: What kind of kids eat Armour Hot Dogs?
Bart: Fat kids.
Lisa: Skinny kids.
Bart: Kids who climb on rocks.
Lisa: Tough kids.
Bart: Sissy kids.
Milhouse: (Sticks head from the window.) Even kids with chicken pox love--
Family: Hot dogs, Armour Hot Dogs.
(Grampa stops playing harmonica.) The dogs kids love to bite!
Lisa: Doesn't this family know any songs that aren't commercials?
(Everyone except Lisa starts singing the "Chicken Tonight" jingle.)
Mr. Burns: Bravissimo, Luigi! Bring us your finest bottle of vino!
Luigi: Hey, you trust-ah Luigi, huh? He knows-ah what for to make-ah really nice the amore.
Jackie: Oh, Monty, I've never been to a more romantic restaurant.
Luigi: (Entering kitchen) Hey, Salvatore! Break out the cheap hooch for Mr. No-Tip and the dried-up-ah zombie he's-ah captured!
Marge: He's an evil man.
Mrs. Bouvier: Evil, shmevil, Marge. Monty can provide for me. And besides, he's a great kisser.
Homer: Ew, yuck!
Bart: I'm going to keep the Mary Worth phone right here. Her stern but sensible face will remind me never to do anything so stupid again.
(it rings and Bart answers it)
Milhouse: Hey Bart, you want to go play with that X-ray machine in the abandoned hospital?
Mr. Burns: My darling, since my kneecaps are filling with fluid as we speak, I'll be brief. Will you marry me?
Grampa: La...tex...con...dome. Boy I'd like to live in one of those!
Marge: He's an awful, awful, awful man! I guess if he makes Mom happy, that's all that really matters.
Homer: That's right, money. Your money's happiness is all that moneys.
Roger Myers Jr.: I'm proud to offer your viewers these hand-drawn Itchy and Scratchy animation cells. Each one is absolutely, positively, one hundred percent guaranteed to increase in value.
Voiceover: (very quickly) Not a guarantee.
Grampa: You know, you remind me of a poem I can't remember, and a song that may never have existed, and a place I'm not sure I've ever been to.
Marge: Homey, you know, it's funny. Both my mother and your father seem pretty lonely.
Homer: (chuckling) That is funny.
Grampa: Oh, it's not a swindle. What you do is, see, you give them all your credit card numbers, and if one of them is lucky, they send you a prize.
Bart: (Imitating Grampa and Jacqueline) Don't forget the Smeckler's powder.
Grampa and Jacqueline: Don't make fun!
(Bart answers the door)
Man: Yeah, hi. I got a special delivery for Homer Simpson.
Bart: That's me.
Man: (Punches Bart in the face.) Don't write no more letters to Mr. Sinatra.
(doorbell rings Bart answers it)
Teenager: I got a special delivery for Homer Simpson.
Bart: Uh that's me.
Teenager: (Punches Bart in the face.) Stop stealing golf balls from the driving range!
Man: (Through door) Homer Simpson! I've got a uh special delivery for you.
Bart: Go away.
Man: If you do not open the door, Mr. Simpson I cannot give you your special delivery.
(Bart sees it's his animation cell he ordered.)
Man: Here's your special delivery.
Man: (Punches Bart in the face.) And that's for keeping me waiting.
Lisa: Hey, where's Grampa? Wasn't he invited to the wedding?
Bart: Yeah. But his reply envelope just had a check to the gas company in it.
Marge: I have a neat idea. Why don't you get my mother and we can go out to dinner?
Grampa: I'll be back in a jiffy! (gets an old lady in a wheelchair)
Marge: That's not my mother!
Grampa: I'll be back in a jiffy!
Old Lady: Can I come too?
(Homer rolls up his car window)
Old Lady: Oh.
Comic Book Guy: No groaning in my store.
Homer: Marge, please, old people don't need companionship. They need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use.
Marge: Homer, would you please stop reading that Ross Perot pamphlet?
Bart: (ordering things over the phone with Homer's wallet) Do you accept the Federal Breast Inspector's card? ...License to Ogle? Vica...Oh, yes of course that's what I meant, Visa. It's these new dentures
Grampa: Would it be all right with you if I just laid down in the street and died?
Lawyer: Yes, that would be acceptable.
Mrs. Bouvier: I swear, Monty, you are the devil himself.
Mr. Burns: I...Who told you?! ...Oh, ah, yes.
Grampa: I'm gonna smooch her like a mule eating an apple!
Homer: Well, I'm opposed to the whole thing! Damn opposed!
Bart: He's damn opposed! Damn damn damn opposed!
Mr. Burns: Why, it's Fred Flintstone and his lovely wife, Wilma! Oh, and this must be little Pebbles! Mind if I come in? I brought chocolates.
Grampa: I'm in love... no wait, it's a stroke.
Blackboard Joke: I will not re-transmit without the express permission of Major League Baseball.
Couch Gag: The family runs into the room, running into each other. They all explode like they were made of glass. Santa's Little Helper walks in and inspects the rubble.
The Gold Rush
The scene where Abe sticks forks into potatoes to make "legs" to dance with is borrowed from Charlie Chaplin, specifically the scene where he dances them to the "Oceana Roll" in his 1925 film The Gold Rush.
Grampa: Goodnight Mrs. Bouvier, wherever you are.
Jimmy Durante always closed his TV show (in the 1950's) with the line "Goodnight, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are." as he left the stage thru a series of spotlights on the floor. That's why the lawyers "representing the estate of the late Jimmy Durante" appear and tell him to stop.
Jackie: Boys all paid attention to me and it drove my friends crazy.
Grampa: Who were your friends?
Jackie: Oh, Zelda Fitzgerald, Frances Farmer, and little Sylvia Plath.
All of Jackie Bouvier's friends actually were crazy in real life. Zelda Fitzgerald, wife of the famous F. Scott Fitzgerald was institutionalized and died when said building burned down. Frances Farmer was a 1930's & 40's actress who was also institutionalized and eventually recieved a lobotomy. Sylvia Plath was a famous poet with a series of suicide attempt, and was finally sucessful in 1963.
The end of the episode, where Grampa is screaming for his bride while behind glass and then Grampa and his bride run off from church and board a bus with Simon and Garfunkel-style music playing, parodies that of the 1967 film The Graduate.
Episode Title: "Lady Bouvier's Lover"
The title is a clear reference to D.H Lawrence's novel Lady Chatterly's Lover.
Simon and Garfunkel
The end song "The Sound of Grampa" is a parody of Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence".
