Personal Quote:

The history of TV has traditionally been not to do anything that would scandalize Grandma or upset Junior. Our solution on The Simpsons is to do jokes that people who have an education, or some frame of reference, can get.

Trivia:

After his divorce in 1999, he lived together with dating expert Lauren Frances for six years. See more »
