Bart gets detention for breaking the class fish tank with a yo-yo. When he tries to get it back from Mrs. Krabappel, Bart finds a personal ad Krabappel placed in a magazine and begins writing love letters to her under the guise of a man named Woodrow. Meanwhile, Homer opts to build Santa's Little Helper a doghouse--and ends up creating a swear jar to curb his cursing after Todd Flanders picks up Homer's foul language.
Edna: After two months at sea, the pilgrims were running out of food and water. Yes, Nelson?
Nelson: Did they have any yo-yo's?
Edna: No, they did not have yo-yo's. When they landed at Plymouth Rock, they were greeted by the friendly Indians.
Milhouse: Did the Indians have yo-yo's!?
Edna: No they did not have yo-yo's! That's it! I am sick and tired of talking about yo-yo's. From now on I won’t accept any book report, science project, dioramas, or anything else on yo-yo's, or yo-yo related topics. Am I making myself clear?
Ned: Sorry to bother you, Reverend Lovejoy, but I'm kind of in a tizzy. My son Todd just told us he didn't want to eat his damn vegetables.
Lovejoy: Well, you know kids and vegetables. What was it, asparagus?
Ned: No, Reverend, the point is, he said a bad word!
Lovejoy: Oh, right, yeah. Well, kids usually pick these things stuff up from someplace. Find out who's doing it and…direct them to the Bible.
Ned: Where in the Bible?
Lovejoy: Uh…Page 900.
Ned: But Rev-- (Lovejoy hangs up)
Lovejoy: Damn Flanders.
Jimmy: Hey, what gives?
Jimmy's Dad: You said you wanted to live in a world without zinc Jimmy. Well now your car has no battery.
Jimmy: But I promised Betty I'd pick her up by 6:00. I better give her a call.
Jimmy's Dad: Sorry Jimmy. Without zinc for the rotary mechanism, there are no telephones.
Jimmy: Dear God! What have I done?
(Jimmy pulls out a gun and points it to his head and fires)
Jimmy's Dad: Think again Jimmy. You see the firing pin in your gun was made out of…yep…zinc.
Jimmy: Come back zinc, Come Back!!
Ned: I just wish you wouldn't curse in front of my boys!
Homer: Oh, come on, now, Flanders! I don't complain about your…moustache!
Ned: What's wrong with my moustache?
Homer: It makes you look like you've got something to hide.
Homer: People are talking. Lots of people.
Ned: Okay, mister. You've got yourself a deal. I'll shave off the soup strainer if you give the sailor talk the ol' heave-ho. Okay?
Homer: Aye aye! Admiral Butthead.
Edna's jewelry changes color from when he first sees her to when he sees her after the movie.
The desk blotter Edna had on her desk vanishes during the conversation with Bart.
The 2 boards Homer hammers & steps on are apparently replaced with a 'finished' doghouse.
Even if we assume the doghouse was simply off screen, due to the fact that during the close up, Homer doesn't seem to move, the boards are apparently still missing.
