Apu: And girls that have legs and know how to use them.
Otto: And why I can't drive 55.
Tom Petty: You just want mindless, generic rock?
Homer: Precisely.

Homer: No! Don't go! I wanna keep on rocking! A-one, a-two-
(Elvis Costello drives by and takes the guitar)
Elvis Costello: I'll take that.
Homer: Noooooooooooo!
(Elvis Costello drives back)
Elvis Costello: It came with a pick.
(Homer hands Elvis the pick and he drives off)

Mick Jagger: And no matter where you are, you always say ‘It's the wildest town in the whole damn world.’
Wiggum: So when you said it in Springfield last year you didn't mean it?
Mick Jagger: Yeah sure I did, but only because Springfield really is the wildest town in the whole damn world.
(everyone cheers)
