Homer: Is spider poison, human poison?
Homer: You can't enjoy money when you're dead so why not have fun now!!
Marge: Don't you think you've had enough fun? Last year you spent $5,000 on donuts, $2,000 on scalp massages, $500 on body glitter.
Homer: Hey, I earned that money. While you lounge around here doing laundry and putting up drywall, I'm at work busting my hump.
Marge: Oh, please. From what I hear you waltz in there at 10:30, take a nap on the toilet, then sit around Googling your own name until lunch.
Homer: (gasping) Who told you that?!
Marge: You shouted it while we were making love!! Now look here mister, I pay the bills, I do the budget and I'm in charge of the money. Hmmm!
Insurance Rep: Mr. Simpson before we can insure you we need to ask you some questions. Have you ever had a heart attack?
Homer: Haven't we all.
Insurance Rep: Strokes?
Homer: None…no wait, three. (chuckles) Since the last one I don't remember so good.
Insurance Rep: Are you a smoker?
Homer: Yes I am.
Marge: You don't smoke!!
Homer: Shhh!! (whispering) I want her to think I'm cool.
Marge: I am so sick of that story about finding an onion ring in your French fries! It was twenty years ago!
Homer: That was my Woodstock!
Marge: Is there anything more fun than a nice Sunday drive?
Bart: Oh yeah it's great. Why don't we top it off by reading to old people.
Lisa: Well I think, in these days of petro-terrorists and ozone depletion, a Sunday drive reeks of bio-hubris.
Turkish Captain: You are a wise woman. It is a shame you dress like a Lebanese prostitute!
Nelson: Ha, ha! People died in those shirts!
