Episode Quotes
Lisa: Mom, Dad's on PBS!
Marge: Hmm? They don't show police chases, do they?
Homer: (fumbling for the right words) Um, it's an honor to give $10,000. Especially now, when the rich mosaic of cable programming has made public television so very, very unnecessary.
the crowd claps
Marge: (knowingly) From now on, one of us always stays home.
Lisa: Agreed.

White: Folks, we've just reached our goal of ten thousand, seven hundred dollars, and it's all thanks to one generous caller ... who didn't leave his name.
Homer: (laughs)
White: But thanks to Insta-Trace, we've learned it's Homer Simpson of 742 Evergreen Terrace. (a picture of Homer appears on the screen)
Homer: (screams) Oh, why did I register with Insta-Trace?

Homer: Gather round, I am going to teach you about religion.
Natives: Oh God, oh God, oh God.
Homer: Please, please. I am just God's messenger and, lo! What a wonderful message it is. Like this one, from the book of P-salms.

Betty White: And if you watch one minute without contributing, you're a thief! A common thief!
PBS Man: Okay, Betty White, calm down.
Betty White: I'm sorry. It's just that these thieves make me so damn mad. You know who you are - THIEVES!



Episode Goofs
When Homer takes the Bibles from the crate the words 'Holy Bible' are written on the backs of the books.



Moments later when Homer asks the natives if they've heard of "Jet Lag", the backs of the Bibles are now blank.
