Susan Sarandon: (voice on the feMac) You've got mail. Unlike the prisoners at Guantánamo Bay. Get informed!

Ned: Hey Marge, I don't, I don't really want a computer. You know, all those complete strangers googling each other makes my flesh crawl.

Homer: My son's been ape-napped!
Lisa: No no, it's still kid-napped. The prefix applies to the victim.

Rod and Todd: No!
Ned: (shocked) The n-word!
