(The family is having genetically-modified vegetables for dinner)
Lisa: Um, mom? My potato is eating a carrot!
Marge: That's it - from now on, I'm growing all our vegetables myself.
Ned Flanders: Hi-diddly-ho, Homer.
Homer: Oh my God! This dude does the best Flanders!
Homer: Oops, I thought this was the can, man. Hahahahahahah.
Mr Burns: Well, you're a happy Homer. What's your name, young man?
Homer: You just said it! (Homer starts laughing)
Mr Burns: Hehehe, well if you like that, listen to this. Working hard, or hardly working?
(Homer laughs even harder)
Homer: Hey, I've got a question for you. Could Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that he himself could not eat it.
Ned: Well sure of course, he could, but then again… wow as melon scratchers go, that's a honey doodle.
Homer: Now you know what I've been going through.
Homer: Marge, I just realized I'm the "ow" in the word low. And if you tell anyone.
Marge: Honey I like it when you call but we just talked five minutes ago, hang on I've got call waiting… Hello?
Homer: Hey, it's me. I've got Marge on the other line and she is totally bumming me out.
Homer: Oh no, we killed Mr. Burns. Mr. Burns is gonna be so angry!
Homer: I can go up to the President and blow smoke in his stupid monkey face and he'd just have to sit there grooving on it.
Phish Member #1: Hey, wait a minute. (Sniffs) I smell marijuana! That better be medicinal! If Phish don't see a prescription sheet we are out of here!
Phish Member #2: We can wait all day, people!
(Hans Moleman walks up to the podium and hands Phish a prescription sheet.)
Phish Member #1: Whoa! This guy is seriously ill!
Hans Moleman: My doctor didn't tell me that! I had to hear it from Phish?
Homer: (Flees from scarecrow and screams) I'll re-group at Red Lobster.
Bill Clinton: So when somebody says I was an embarrassment to the country, I say it depends on what your definition of 'was' is.
Burns: I have to raise sixty million dollars or we're out of business.
Smithers: Why is that, sir?
Burns: I told you! I pissed it away!
Homer: Whether you suffer from glaucoma or you just rented The Matrix, medical marijuana makes everything fabulous, medically.
Otto: Shemp is Hemp spelled backwards!
Homer: And Otto is Otto spelled backwards!
Otto: Now I'm scared!
Homer: Oh, I could've smoked that pot. And worn that hair!
Homer: This thing made everything funny, even that show that follows Friends.
Marge: Why do you still have that? Your eyes are fine!
Homer: As a reminder, Marge, as a reminder.
(Close-up to the marijuana. It reads "Dentist-Tuesday")
Homer: (About Bill Clinton) He's Jimmy Carter with a FOX attitude.
Marge: I'm really starting to worry. There's half-eaten cupcakes everywhere, we're all out of paper clips, and the curtains smell like doob.
Homer: Wow, that saxophone would make a great pipe.
Homer: (Introducing his crows) That's Russell Crow, Cameron Crow, Crow Diddley, Hume Crownin, Gregory Peck...
Marge: You don't need Mary Jane to laugh at Mr. Burns' jokes. Just picture him naked.
Homer: AAH! AAH! AAH!
Marge: Or ummmm with a funny hat on!
Lisa: I want my old dad back, the one that was yelling all the time and ... you know, I'm not really sure what I want.
Marge: Alright, family. Who can guess what's different about dinner tonight?
Homer: Eh? Same old garbage!
Bart: Ahahahaha, this guy's always on!
Marge: I'm not comfortable having a gang of crows in the bedroom.
Homer: It's a murder honey; a group of crows is called a MURDER.
Dr. Hibbert: For your condition, the only tonic is chronic.
Homer: Okay, someone's got to laugh at Burns' jokes. Here take this. (Shows Smithers the marijuana) I promised my family I wouldn't, so it's up to you.
Smithers: Well, okay.
Homer: Start inhalin' Waylon.

Marge: (referring to the crows) I've tried heckling them. I've tried jeckling them. It's time I made myself a scarecrow.
This line references the cartoon birds Heckle and Jeckle, both of whom starred in many classic Terrytoon cartoons during the 1940s and 1950s. However, Heckle and Jeckle are actually magpies, which are related to crows. The duo had previously made a cameo appearance in the episode "The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace".
Marge assembles her scarecrow to the tune "If I Only Had a Brain" from the 1939 film musical The Wizard of Oz.
Marge: They're grown by the vegetable division of Union Carbide.
Union Carbide is the company whose negligence caused the 1984 disaster in Bhopal, India. A toxic gas leak killed thousands of people and gave many other people chronic health problems.
Homer's Hallucinations: "Cab-solutely Fabulous"
When Homer is on his high (when he goes to work), his car (who winks at him) looks like Benny the Cab from the 1988 film "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."
This episode not only played on the TITLE of the 1989 film "Weekend at Bernie's", but it also plays on the concept of making a dead guy look alive. Believe it or not, situations like that have really happened, including this one in Scotland.
