  • Quotes

    • Principal Skinner: I'm afraid we have no legal recourse against Mr. Burns and his slant-drilling operation. The oil belongs to whoever pumped it first.
      Groundskeeper Willie: What about all the expensive stuff we wanted? Can we still have it??
      Principal Skinner: No!
      (Groundskeeper Willie rips his shirt open and yells angrily, then begins to sob; the school staff begin to murmur.)
      Groundskeeper Willie: (pounds fist on desk) Blast it!
      Principal Skinner: In fact, to pay for the construction, operation, and demolition of our derrick, the school will have to eliminate all nonessential programs: music…
      (Tito Puente gasps, then punches his bongos in angrily.)
      Principal Skinner: …and maintenance.
      Groundskeeper Willie: Aargh! (stands up) I'LL KILL THAT MR. BURNS!!! And, er, wound that Mr. Smithers! (storms out) Out of my way!
