My Homer fave

My Homer favourite is: "If something is difficult to do, it's not worth doing". I have that on a coffee mug...

They missed some

"To alcohol, the cause and solution to all of life's problems" -- Homer

"I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman." -- Homer again

"That's where I met the Leprechaun, he tells me to burn things." -- Ralph

And there are so many more. But those are some of my favorites.

The Book of Prescott

You mean a quote *about* Prescott got in but Prescott himself didn't? Snobs. Hopefully he at least made it into the normal dictionary with 'Balklands' and my fave 'Hydrocardigans'.

too many great ones

"Donuts, is there anything they can't do?"

"Relax? I can't relax! Nor can I yield, relent, or-- *ugh*-- only two synonyms? Oh my God, I'm losing my perspicacity!"

"This enormous woman will devour us all!"

Spoilt for choice...

My favourite Homer line ever, on the subject of valet parking:

"Maybe for once, someone will call me 'Sir', without adding; 'you're making a scene'."

Sci/Tech angle

Surely the best Homer quotation of all is his response to Lisa's "Daddy, Daddy, I've invented a perpetual motion machine!"

"Lisa, in this house we obey the second law of thermodynamics!"

Classic Quotes!

I always liked

"Green belt is a labour Idea and we plan to build on it" - John Prescott

"Cats have 9 lives, which makes them ideal for experimentation!" - Jimmy Carr

And surely they had to add the Ralph Wiggan classic:

"My cat smells like cat food"

:D

My favourites...

Ok, I know, it's a bit late to respond, but I have an excuse. I was doing a practice round for Friday night on Thursday, and suddenly it was Sunday.

"Alright brain. I don't like you and you don't like me, so just get me through this exam so I can go back to kiling you slowly with beer" - Homer Simpson

"I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning that's as good as they're going to feel all day" - Frank Sinatra

"You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer" - Frank Zappa
