Episode Notes
Chalkboard: Nobody reads these anymore

Couch: The Simpsons are on a simplistically drawn sailboat that looks like the one in the picture above the couch. All five of them dive into the water and end up on the couch. The living room is wet from the splash and Homer uses his finger to clean his ear out while clicking on the TV with the remote.

Judge Constance Harm: Don't spit on my cupcake and tell me its frosting.
Homer: What did she say about cupcakes?

Marjorie: She's such a butthole!

Homer: She is so cool!

Judge Constance Harm: You abandoned your son to win forty dollars?
Homer: And a Blue Oyster Cult medallion.
(Holds it up and admires it) Cool.
Judge Constance Harm: And that was more important than keeping your son out of trouble?
Homer: Your Honor, if may sing a little bit of, "Don't Fear the Reaper," I think you'll agree...
Judge Constance Harm: I'm familiar with BOC. But you have got a boy here who is crying out for adult supervision.
Homer: I couldn't agree more. Perhaps some sort of court-appointed babysitter or au pair.
Judge Constance Harm: Sorry, bub, that crow won't caw.
Homer: It won't!

Judge Constance Harm: Agh! That quilt was made by my Grandmother.

Judge Constance Harm: I hereby order you to be tethered to your son.
Homer: Tethered!
Judge Constance Harm: Tethered. Report to room five.
Homer: Room five!

Judge Constance Harm: Oh, I can't resist that look. You remind me of me, when I was a little boy.

Judge Constance Harm: But I was about to bang my gavel, making the sentence official!

Homer: That was close.
Hans Moleman: Please drive off me.
Homer: Argh!
Marjorie: What was that?
Homer: Uh, just the radio, dear.

Judge Constance Harm: You remind me of myself... when I was a little boy.

Edna Krabappel: Okay, now who can pick out the predicate in this sentence?
Homer: Ahhh!
Edna Krabappel: What is it now, Bart?
Bart: Night terrors.
Homer: Ahh! Cobras!

Homer: Look at her in there, washing her body.
