Episode Notes
Chalkboard: None

Couch: Repeat of the couch gag from "The Homer They Fall" where The Simpsons are dressed as cowboys (and cowgirls) and sit on the couch as it gallops away.

Episode Quotes
Mayor Quimby: You can't seriously want to ban alcohol. It tastes great, makes women appear more attractive, and makes a person virtually invulnerable to criticism.
Helen Lovejoy: Oh, won't someone please think of the children?
Maude Flanders: What kind of example are we setting?
Mayor Quimby: Ladies, please. All our founding fathers, astronauts, and World Series heroes have been either drunk or on cocaine.

Banner: Are you the Beer Baron?
Comic Book Guy: Yes, but only by night. By day I'm a mild-mannered reporter for a major Metropolitan newspaper.
Banner: Don't crack wise with me, tubby!
Comic Book Guy: Tubby? Oh, yes. Tubby.

(Moe's bar is disguised as a pet shop during prohibition)
Banner: Pet shop, eh? Well, I have one thing to say about that. What kind of pet shop is filled with rambunctious yahoos and hot jazz music at 1:00 in the morning?
Moe: Er, uh ... the ... best damn pet shop in town!
People: Yeah!

Homer: Alcohol is a way of life! My way of life, and I aim to keep it!
Wiggum: Sounds like you have a plan.
Homer: Maybe I do, Chief. Maybe I do.
(Bart is standing on his head and watching TV)
Homer: Come on, boy! Think of a plan.
Bart: I'm trying, Dad!
