My Answer to the Latest Criticwire Survey: Most Used Simpsons Quote

Q: What's your go-to quote from The Simpsons -- not your favorite necessarily, but the one you're most likely to use on a daily basis?

I can only choose one? If I had to narrow it down to just one, then I’ll go with Super Nintendo (I mean Superintendent) Chalmers line after temporary Principal Ned thanks the lord over the P.A. system “That sounded like a prayer. A prayer in a public school. God has no place within these walls, just like facts have no place within organized religion”. Makes me laugh every time, and being an atheist married to a Catholic School Teacher (who teaches religion, naturally) just makes it all the better.

What else? “Dental Plan”. “Lisa needs braces” “Lousy Smarch weather”, “Barney’s movie had heart, but Football in the groin had a football in the groin”, “I was saying Boo-urns”, “Five days? But I’m angry now”, “Everything’s coming up Millhouse!”, “My eyes – the goggles do nothing!”, “I eated the purple berries. They tasted like burning”, “I’m cold and there are wolves after me”, “Me Fail English? That’s unpossible”, “I bent my wookie”, “Worst. Episode. Ever.” “It’s a perfectly cromulent word”, “Alcohol, the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems”, “You're a liar, honey, A dirty rotten liar.”, “I’m kind of like Jesus, but not in a sacrilegious way”, “Let the bears pay the bear tax, I pay the Homer tax”, “Tramamampoline!”, “It was a pornography store. I was buying pornography”, “Abortions for some, miniature American flags for others!”, “Up and at them!”, “You’ve crossed the line from regular villainy into cartoonish super-villainy.”, “Dig up, stupid”, “I noticed that he was wearing sneakers. For… sneaking.” “The doll is trying to kill me, and the toaster’s been laughing at me”.

Yeah, so basically, I quote The Simpsons a lot.

EDIT: After speaking to my wife after posting this, she pointed out one I completely forgot about, for some reason, even though it is a running joke between the two of us as we often ask each other about the "pretzel monies". Here is the full quote from Fat Tony: "I'm afraid I must insist. You see, my wife, she has been most vocal on the subject of the pretzel monies. "Where's the money? "When are you going to get the money?" "Why aren't you getting the money now?" And so on."
