Episode Quotes
Marge: I guess I'll have to do all your driving chores. That's what a good wife does, picks up the slack.
Homer: That reminds me, we gotta pick up my slacks at that dry cleaner in Shelbyville.
Marge: Why can't you use the local dry cleaner?
Homer: I didn't want them to know my size.

Homer [singing]:
You see... I like to walk down the avenue
Bust a move with Disco Stu
Disco Stu: You shake me from my booty to my 'fro
Homer: Yes I strut down the boulevard burning off my excess lard
I rarely feel the need to utter "doh!"
Top of the morning ladies!
Patty: Bite us
Homer: I can walk from Springfield to Alaska,
Then hobnob with the stars in Malibu...
Steve: Hi Homer. I'm actor Steve Buscemi.
Homer: The guy who got fed into the woodchipper in Fargo!
And when I hear, "You can't walk to Turkmenistan,"
I say, "Of course I can, screw you!"
Steve: Hey! Would you guys like tickets to the Independant Film awards?
Turks: Would we!
Homer: Oh I love to perambulate
Its standing still I really hate
So let me please reiterate I love to...

(Marge drives Homer, Carl and Lenny home from a strip club)
Lenny: Can we stop for ice cream?
Carl: Homer always stops for ice cream.
Marge: We'll see.
Lenny: That always means no.
