Quotes

[after Homer drove the van into a tree]
Arnie Pie: He's jumping out of the car, Kent. He's trying to climb over the fence. He's realizing he's too fat. He's digging a hole like a dog! Now he's giving up on that and he's running back and forth. He's climbing into a pipe and he appears to be stuck. His legs are dangling in a comical fashion. Oh, it's the saddest thing I've ever seen!
Kent Brockman: Arnie, how are the *children*?
Arnie Pie: [irritated] I can't see through *metal*, Kent.
