Episode Quotes
Homer: I'll keep my promise, honey.
Mr. Burns: No looking at pictures of loved ones!
Homer: (murmurs) Lousy Burns bald headed
Mr. Burns: No angry grumbling under your breath!

Country Singer (singing):
I could please Ms. Barbra Streisand,
By spitting on the flag,
And strangling a bald eagle,
On the cover of some mag,
But I love my country,
To me she has no sins,
If you don't buy my record,
Then Al Qaeda wins.

Mr. Burns: Now open the folder. It contains your next victim.
(Homer opens the folder and takes out a picture.)
Homer: No not him! Anyone but him! I've had my problems with him, everyone has. But like every monster he just wants to be loved.
(Picture is shown to be Homer)

Milhouse: Finally, a superhero that kids can love.
Nelson: What about Fist Face?
Milhouse: Fist Face? Who's Fist Face? Why won’t you tell me who Fist Face is. I demand you reveal the identity of Fist Face.
Nelson: It's you. (punches him)
