Episode Notes
Chalkboard: Fun does not have a size

Couch: A repeat of the couch gag from "New Kids on the Blecch" where The Simpsons are prisoners tunnelling to the couch.

Episode Quotes
Lisa: Uh, how is the Feast of 12 Delights with Triple Happiness Sauce?
Waiter: Very disappointing.
Lisa: Then, I'll have the Sweet and Sour Rice.
Waiter: Oh, very good. Would you like that with the fragrant bee bellies or the cat noses.
Lisa: Neither, thank you.
Waiter: Is there any way we could enhance your dining experience here by hurting an animal?
Lisa: No!

Homer: You know what would be surprising? A foot massage.
Snake: Shut up! (Punches him)
Gloria: Beating him to a pulp won't impress me.
Snake: It used to, what if I hit him harder?
Gloria: Oh, you still don't get it!
Homer: Um, I'm still up for that foot massage.
Snake: Shut up! (Punches him again)

Mr. Burns: I don't understand. She was my young, sexy fiancée; he was my sexually virile best friend; and they just drove off in my Bugutti Sexarossa. How could this have ever happened?
Kent Brockman: Well, according to our audience insta-poll, 46% say "You're too old," and 37% say "She's a skank!"

Homer: These fortunes are terrible. They're supposed to predict stuff and ease you through times of doubt and sickness.
Manager: Well, with all due respect, sir, I suppose you could come up with better fortunes?
Homer: You will be aroused by a shampoo commercial.
Manager: That's not bad!

Snake: I'm gonna win you back, even if it means I got to pistol whip this dude (Homer) all night.
Homer: (scared) Pistol whip?
(imagines himself eating whipped cream from a pistol) Hmm, pistol whip...

Chief Wiggum: We'll track down Simpson with your vehicles anti-theft system.
Anti-theft System: Car gone Car gone!
Chief Wiggum: Yeah, we know that. Where has it gone to?
Anti-theft System: Car gone! Car gone! Car gone!
