    • Marge: All right, children, let me have those letters. I'll send them to Santa's workshop at the North Pole.
      Bart: Oh, please. There's only one fat guy that brings us presents, and his name ain't Santa.
      (Marge reads Lisa letter.)
      Marge: Uh--A pony? Oh, Lisa, you've asked for that for the last three years, and I keep telling you Santa can't fit a pony into his sleigh. Can't you take a hint?
      Lisa: But I really want a pony, and I've been really, really good this year.
      Marge: Oh, dear. Maybe Bart is a little more realistic. (Marge reads Bart's letter.) A tattoo?
      Homer: A what?
      Bart: Yeah! They're cool and they last the rest of your life.
      Marge: You will not be getting a tattoo for Christmas.
      Homer Yeah. If you want one, you'll have to pay for it out of your own allowance.
      Bart: All right!
      Marge: Homer!
