[sighs]

Kent Brockman: Holds it.

Marge: [as the Simpsons eat from everything but the dinner plates which Bart and Homer shot at earlier] Does anyone know where all my dinner plates went?

Bart Simpson: Um...

Homer: Um, you probably left them at work. On another topic, guess who was picked to host the next NRA meeting!

[points gun to himself]

Marge: Homer, I told you this morning, no guns at the dinner table.

Homer: You said the breakfast table.

Marge: It's the same table!

Homer: Listen, if it'll make you feel any better, I'll put the safety on.

[attempts to put the safety on, but accidentally fires the gun. We see the bullet just nick Marge's shoulder in a picture of her hanging on a bulletin board]

Homer: Oh... I guess the safety was on.

[He tries again, but again accidentally fires it, this time hitting the same picture of Marge square in the chest]

Homer: I'd better just put it down.

[sets the gun on the table. While it rests there, the gun fires itself, and the bullet ricochets off a pot, hitting a knife sitting in a brick of cheese. The knife sails through the air, and stabs the same picture of Marge right between the eyes]

Lisa: No offence, Mom, but that was pretty cool.

Homer: [the Mexican soccer team has the first possession of the ball and is cautiously kicking the ball around, setting up for a goal as the Portugal team stands there, awaiting the play to develop. The crowd quickly grows bored]

[shouts]

Homer: Boring!

Krusty: Come on, you schnorers, do something!

Kent Brockman: [sounding bored as he calls the actions] Halfback passes to the center. Back to the wing. Back to the center. Center holds it. Holds it.

[rolls eyes]

Kent Brockman: Holds it...

Foreign-accented sports commentator: [excitedly] Halfback passes to center, back to wing, back to center, center holds it! Holds it! Holds it!

Sideshow Mel: I can't bear this any longer, I'm leaving!

[puts Flanders into a headlock]

Principal Skinner: Hey, now, that's uncalled for.

Lenny: Shut your hole, Skinner!

[punches Skinner in the stomach which causes him to fall down the stairs]

Homer: A gun is not a weapon, Marge. It's a tool. Like a butcher knife, or a harpoon, or... uh, a... an alligator. You just need more education on the subject. Tell you what. You come with me to an N.R.A. meeting, and if you still don't think guns are great, we can argue some more.

Lenny: Assault weapons have gotten a lot of bad press lately, but they're manufactured for a reason: to take out today's modern super animals, such as the flying squirrel, and the electric eel.

Bart Simpson: [after he finds Homer's gun and tries to shoot an apple off Milhouse's head] And the next marksman is: William Tell, Jr.!

Milhouse Van Houten: Jinx!

Marge: [when she comes home; gasps] Bart!

Homer: Oh, I see Bart gets to have a gun.

Marge: You lied to me! You promised to get rid of this gun.

Homer: I put it in a safe place, Marge! I mean, what are the odds the boy would look in the vegetable crisper?

Marge: How could you? Of all the terrible things you've ever done in your life, this is the worst, the most despicable!

Homer: But, Marge, I swear to you, I never thought you'd find out!

Marge: Mmm... until you decide what's more important, your gun, or your family, we can't live in the same house. Come on, kids.

[takes the kids and leaves]

Homer: So this is the thanks I get for protecting my family? Then go. I'll be just fine.

[door slams; Homer turns to Milhouse]

Homer: Do you know how to cook dinner?

Milhouse Van Houten: [excitedly] Do I?

[starts looking through a cabinet, rummaging through pots and pans]

Homer: [to Marge] Oh, honey, please come home. I need you! It's dark in the house and I'm hungry and lonesome and there's no one there to hear my various witty remarks!

Marge: What about the gun?

Homer: It's gone for good, Marge. I finally realized, what's the point of having a gun for protection, if you've got no one to protect?

Marge: Oh, Homey...

[she and Homer hug]

Marge: Come on, kids, we're going home!

Homer: I'm sorry I lied to you, Marge. But this gun had a hold on me. I felt this incredible surge of power, like God must feel when he's holding a gun. So please, get rid of it, because I know I'll just lie to you again and again.
