Grampa: Ooh… Just leave me in the car with window open a crack.
Homer: That's the plan!
Marge: Well, I think it's nice that we're doing something for Maggie. Besides, Storytown Village might have something for all ages, from (points to Lisa) eight to… (points to Grampa) God only knows…

Homer: Marge, since I'm not talking to Lisa, could you please ask her to pass me the syrup?
Marge: (sighs) Please pass your father the syrup, Lisa.
Lisa: Bart, tell Dad I'll only pass the syrup if it won't be used on any meat products…
Bart: You dunking your sausages in that syrup, Homeboy?
Homer: Marge, tell Bart I just want to drink a nice glass of syrup like I do every morning…
Marge: Tell him yourself; you're ignoring Lisa, not Bart.
Homer: Bart, thank your mother for pointing that out.
Marge: Homer, you're not, not talking to me; and secondly, I heard what you said.
Homer: Lisa, tell your mother to get off my case!
Bart: Uh, Dad? Lisa's the one you're not talking to.
Homer: Bart, go to your room!
Lisa: Why don't you just eat him, Dad?
Homer: I don't need any serving suggestions from YOU, you barbecue-wrecking, know-nothing know-it-all!
Lisa: THAT'S IT!!! (points to Homer) I can't live in a house with this prehistoric carnivore! I AM OUT OF HERE!!!
(Lisa leaves the room and slams the front door.)
Homer: (to Lisa, even though she left) That's it! Go to your room!

(Upon discovering the barbecue Ned Flanders is hosting in his backyard, which involves the entire Flanders family.)
Homer: Hey Flanders--
Everybody: Hi-diddly-ho, neighborino!
Homer: Shut up!
Everybody: Okily-dokily!

Cultural References
Paul: Linda and I both feel strongly about animal rights. In fact, if you play "Maybe I'm Amazed" backwards, you'll hear a recipe for a really ripping lentil soup.

This is actually true. In the episode, "Maybe I'm Amazed" plays over the credits. If you listen carefully, you can hear backwards talking which was spoken and dubbed in by Paul for the show. Here's the complete recipe:

- one medium onion, chopped
- two tablespoons of vegetable oil
- one clove of garlic, crushed
- one cup of carrots, chopped
- two sticks of celery, chopped
- half a cup of lentils
- one bay leaf
- one tablespoon of freshly-chopped parsely
- salt and freshly-ground pepper to taste
- two and a quarter cups of vegetable stock or water

At the end of the backwards recording (begining of the talking), Paul says, "There you have it, Simpsons lovers. Oh, and by the way, I'm alive." A quick joke at the "Paul Is Dead" rumors that have been going on for decades.
