Episode Notes

Couch: The couch is replaced by four wooden chairs. "Pop Goes the Weasel" pots up as The Simpsons play musical chairs. Once the music stops, everyone grabs a seat, leaving Homer standing.

Springfield Shopper headline: Local man thinks wrestling is real

Episode Quotes
Otto: That's not a song! Real songs are about deals with the devil, far off lands where you'd find smoke in relation to water.

Otto: Oh, knock it off Kearney. Why are you still in this school anyway? We were in third grade together.
Kearney: Stupid school, don't know how to teach me.

Bart: Let me drive. I go through yellow lights.

Nelson: Whow, your mother must dance in the nicest strip club in town.

Fat Tony: Michael, my son, here is your book. And never forget, the divisor goes into the dividend.

Ralph: (as Fat Tony's son is walking by) His daddy putted bullets in my daddy. My daddy had to potty in a bag.

Willie: Argh, look at all this puke! Why did I come in on my day off?

Lisa: Urgh! There is a triple-A battery in my Macaronian cheese.
Lunchlady Doris: It counts as a vegetable.

Fat Tony: Milhouse, may I borrow your three-ring-binder?
Milhouse: Garfield or Love is?
Fat Tony: Uh, I prefer the cat. He hates Mondays. We can all relate.

Fat Tony: Sadly my Anna Maria was whacked by natural causes.

Marge: Oh, you're a widower.
Fat Tony: I bring flowers to her grave every Sunday.
Marge: Oh, flowers every week. I wish I was dead.

Fat Tony: Welcome to my home.
Marge: Huh, must have cost a fortune.
Fat Tony: Actually, you can really keep costs down, when you don't pay for materials or labor or permits or land.

Homer: Wow, your paintings have brush marks. Huh, and your statues have wieners.
Fat Tony: Your words honor my family.

Dante: We meant no disrespect Fat Tony. We were simply trying to kill you

Homer: (After tasting a delicious soufflé) This must be what angels taste like.

Episode Goofs
