Jebediah Springfield’s Head: You know Bart, you don’t have to found a town to be a hero. Sometimes a hero can be a young boy with the courage to stand up and admit he’s made a mistake.
Bart: Yeah, well, I’m running a little short on courage right now.

Marge: Lisa, I apologize to you. I was wrong. I take it all back. Always be yourself. If you want to be sad, honey, be sad. We’ll ride it out with you. And when you get finished feeling sad, we’ll still be there. From now on, let me do the smiling for both of us.

Lisa: I’m just wondering what’s the point. Would it make any difference at all if I ever existed? How can we sleep at night when there’s so much suffering in the world?

Every day at noon a bell rings, and they herd us in here to feeding time. So we sit around like cattle, chewing our cud, dreading the inevitable…

Contrary to what you’ve just seen, war is neither glamorous nor fun. There are no winners, only losers. There are no good wars, with the following exceptions: the American Revolution, World War II, and the Star Wars Trilogy. If you’d like to learn more about war, there’s lots of books in your local library, many of them with cool gory pictures.

Dear Family. I am an utter failure, and you’ll be better off without me. By the time you read this, I will be in my watery grave. I can only leave you with the words my father gave me: ‘Stand tall, have courage, and never give up.’ I only hope I can provide a better model in death that I did in life. Warmest regards Love, Homer J. Simpson

Lisa: What Aunt Patty? 

Aunt Patty: Nothing dear, I’m just trashing your father.

Lisa: Well, I wish you wouldn’t. Because aside from the fact that he has the same frailties as all human beings, he’s the only father I have. Therefore he is my model of manhood, and my estimation of him will govern the prospects of my adult relationships. So I hope you bear in mind that any knock at him is a knock at me, and I am far too young to defend myself against such onslaughts.
