Chalkboard: The hamster did not have "a full life"
Couch: Repeat of the couch gag from "Faith Off" where a Sigmund Freud-looking psychiatrist is sitting on the side of the couch and Homer jumps on and sobs, "Oh, Doctor, I'm crazy!"
Bart: Hello family.
Marge: Where have you been young man, it's nearly bed time.
Bart: I was…I was…
(Bob appears in a thought bubble)
Sideshow Bob: If anyone asks…you were at the flower shop.
Bart: I was at the flower shop.
Homer: Oh yeah, uh…I was at the flower shop too. Yep. Getting drunk at the ol' flower shop.
Krusty: Oh no, I wanted to keep this quiet.
Dr. Hibbert: Can I embarrass this guy for a moment? Three years ago, Krusty pledged over a million dollars to start Krusty's care center.
Krusty: Please, stop already.
Dr. Hibbert: To this day, Krusty has not given us a dime, has he, Francis?
Francis: I'm cold all the time.
Krusty: Aw, look, it was all a bookkeeping snafu.
Dr. Hibbert: Could I have the check now?
Krusty: Now!? Eh... aw, sure.
Francis: God bwess you, Kwusty.
Krusty: And if my banker is watching let nothing stop the payment of this check!
Sideshow Bob: You are in my power!
Bart: I am at your command!
Sideshow Bob: I didn't say anything about command. I said "You are in my power." Now, say it!
Bart: I am in your power.
Sideshow Bob: Good. No, go back to command, I like that better.
Krusty: Folks, I've been in showbiz for 61 years. But now these jerks have sucked all the fun out. I don't need twelve suits telling me which way to pee.
Executive 1: For "pee", could you substitute "whiz"?
Executive 2: I dunno, that could upset the Cheese Whiz people.
Executive 1: I was just thinking that.
