Quotes

Comic Book Guy: Last night's Itchy & Scratchy was, without a doubt, the worst episode ever. Rest assured that I was on internet within minutes registering my disgust throughout the world.

Bart Simpson: Hey, I know it wasn't great, but what right do you have to complain?

Comic Book Guy: As a loyal viewer, I feel they owe me.

Bart Simpson: What? They've given you thousands of hours of entertainment for free. What could they possibly owe you? I mean, if anything, you owe them.

Comic Book Guy: Worst episode ever.

Marge Simpson: It's not your fault, Homer. It's those lousy writers. They make me madder than a... yak in heat.

Homer: [as Poochie] Kids, always recycle... to the extreme!

Roger Myers Jr.: Hey, Krusty, you look great. You get your teeth bleached?

Krusty: Yeah, it's a new kind of polymer treatment... HEY, SHUT UP! You're here 'cause your Itchy & Scratchy cartoons are stinking up my ratings!

[points to a ratings chart]

Krusty: Look at this breakdown of yesterday's show!

Roger Myers Jr.: What happened here? Lightning hit the transmitter?

Krusty: See, that what I thought at first, but then... HEY, SHUT UP! That crater is where your lousy cartoon crash-landed! It's ratings poison!

Roger Myers Jr.: But Itchy & Scratchy is critically acclaimed.

Krusty: ACCLAIMED? PAH! I ought to replace it right now with a Chinese cartoon where robots turn into blingwads! But I'm a lazy, lazy man, Roger. So I'm gonna give you one more chance. Now get out! Don't come back till you've fixed Itchy & Scratchy.

[Roger Myers Jr. slams the door so hard it breaks off, showing Sideshow Mel in the waiting room]

Krusty's Secreatary: [off-screen] Okay, Mel, you can go in now.

Sideshow Mel: [walks into Krusty's office] Krusty, I've come to solicit donations for the Rock 'n' Roll Museum, and...

[Krusty still has an angry face from his argument with Roger Myers Jr]

Sideshow Mel: I'll come back later.

Focus Group Guy: All right, thanks for participating in our focus group, kids. Today, we're gonna show you some Itchy & Scratchy cartoons.

[the kids cheer]

Nelson Muntz: Cool!

Focus Group Guy: We want you to tell us what you think. And be honest because no one from the show is spying on you.

[a man behind the mirror sneezes making the mirror shake]

Lisa Simpson: Why is that mirror sneezing?

Focus Group Guy: Look, it's just an old creaky mirror, you know. Sometimes it sounds a little like it's sneezing or coughing or talking softly.

Lisa Simpson: [suspiciously] Hmm.

Focus Group Guy: [holds his thumb up to the mirror] Now, you each have a knob in front of you. When you like what you see, turn the knob to the right. When you don't like what you see, turn it left.

Ralph Wiggum: [with his knob in his mouth] My knob tastes funny.

Focus Group Guy: [taking the knob out of Ralph's mouth] Please refrain from tasting the knob.

Focus Group Guy: [after showing the kids some Itchy & Scratchy cartoons] Okay, how many of the kids would like Itchy & Scratchy to deal with real life problems like the ones you face every day?

[the kids cheer]

Focus Group Guy: And who would like to see them do just the opposite, getting into far-out situations involving robots and magic powers.

[the kid kids cheer again]

Focus Group Guy: So you want a realistic down-to-earth show that's completely off the wall and swarming with magic robots?

[the kids all chat at once about it being a great idea]

Milhouse Van Houten: And, also, you should win things by watching.

Focus Group Guy: [sighs]

Roger Myers Jr.: [turns off the mirror disguise in the window] You kids don't know what you want. That's why you're still kids, 'cause you're stupid. Just tell me what's wrong with the freakin' show!

[turns the mirror back on]

Ralph Wiggum: [starts crying] Mommy!

Lisa Simpson: Um, excuse me, sir. The thing is, there's not really anything wrong with the Itchy & Scratchy Show. It's as good as ever. But after so many years, the characters just can't have the same impact they once had.

Roger Myers Jr.: [turns the mirror off again] That's it. That's it, little girl. You've saved Itchy & Scratchy!

Blue-haired Lawyer: [holding out a piece of paper to Lisa] Please sign these papers indicating that you did not save Itchy & Scratchy.

June Bellamy: Relax, Homer. You'll do fine. I'm June Bellamy. I do the voices of Itchy & Scratchy.

Homer: You? But you're a lady.

June Bellamy: [as Itchy] She's a lady, all right.

June Bellamy: [as Scratchy] A beautiful lady.

Homer: [laughs] Hey, that really is you. How did you get to be so good?

June Bellamy: Oh, just experience, I suppose. I started out as Road Runner.

June Bellamy: [as Road Runner] Meep!

Homer: You mean "Meep, meep"?

June Bellamy: No, they only paid me to say it once, then they doubled it on the soundtrack. Cheap bastards.

Roger Myers Jr.: You folks ready to begin?

Homer: Uh, I guess. Is this episode going on the air live?

June Bellamy: No, Homer. Very few cartoons are broadcast live. It's a terrible strain on the animators' wrists.

Doug: [wearing a T-shirt that says "Genius at Work"] Hi. A question for Miss Bellamy. In episode 2F09 when Itchy plays Scratchy's skeleton like a xylophone, he strikes the same rib twice in succession, yet he produces two clearly different tones. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a magic xylophone or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.

June Bellamy: Uh, well...

Homer: I'll field this one.

Homer: [to Doug] Let me ask you a question. Why would a man whose shirt says "Genius at Work" spend all of his time watching a children's cartoon show?

[pause]

Doug: I withdraw my question.

[takes a bite from a bar of chocolate]

Database: Uh, excuse me, Mr Simpson. On the Itchy & Scratchy CD-ROM, is there a way to get out of the dungeon without using the wizard key?

Homer: What the hell are you talking about?

June Bellamy: You're a lifesaver, Homer. I can't deal with these hard-core fans.

Comic Book Guy: [clears throat] Your attention, please.

Man: [everyone is still paying attention to June Bellamy & Homer] Uh, in episode...

Comic Book Guy: [interrupting] EH, YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE! Mr Simpson will now be autographing 8-by-10 glossies of Poochie. ONE per customer. Please form a line. There will be no cutting.

[points to someone off-screen]

Comic Book Guy: I'm talking to you, Mr Cutter.

Nelson Muntz: [after the Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie cartoon ends] That stunk.

Homer: Well, what did everybody think?

[everyone starts leaving in disgust]

Ned Flanders: Homer, I can honestly say that was the best episode of Impy & Chimpy I've ever seen.

Carl: Yeah, you should be very proud, Homer. You, uh... got a beautiful home here.

Homer: [to the rest of the Simpson family] So it was pretty okay, huh?

Bart Simpson: Mom, can we go to bed without dinner

Marge Simpson: Yes, we can.

[Marge, Bart and Lisa run upstairs]

[embarrassed pause]

Doug: I withdraw my question.

Animator: Excuse me, but "proactive" and "paradigm"? Aren't these just buzzwords that dumb people use to sound important?

[backpedaling]

Animator: Not that I'm accusing you of anything like that.

[pause]

Animator: I'm fired, aren't I?
