By now you know that the Platis household loves the Simpsons. When we put Logan to bed Kristy went out to grab some snacks and I grabbed one of our Simpson DVD sets so we could watch a few episodes together.
Yeah, this is what our dates usually constitute of.
Kristy and I are constantly quoting the Simpsons. We didn't know to what to extent we quote the Simpsons but we got a general idea last night.
We grabbed a random season, took out a random disc and watched three random episodes. And sure enough there was something in each episode that we have been known to quote often.
We watched "Twenty-Two Short Films About Springfield" and found a bunch of common quotes.
Chalmers: Aurora Borealis? At this time of year? A this time of day? In this part of the country? Localized entirely within your kitchen?
Wiggum: Quarter Pounder with cheese? Well, I can picture the cheese, but, uh, do they have Krusty partially gelatinated non-dairy gum-based beverages?And we have been known to sing and reenact this one out loud from time to time.
Lou: Mm-hm. They call 'em, "shakes."
Eddie: Huh, shakes. You don't know what you're gettin'.
Cletus: Hey, what's going on on this side?I use that last one quite a bit. After Kristy and I watched this episode we laughed that we quoted it so often. And then we watched the next episode, "The Curse of the Flying Hellfish".
Abe: What're you cackling at, fatty? Too much pie, that's your problem!
Fernando Vidal: Ahh. Delmonte.
Are we that pathetic that we have that many quotes out of two episodes or was it merely coincidence? We watched a final Simpsons episode, "Summer of 4 Ft. 2" and we thought for sure we wouldn't have a quote from it. Were we in for a surprise.
Holy cow! Kristy and I totally say that one a lot. So are we Simpson fans or what?*
Lisa: Meh. Maybe you're just getting stronger.
Homer: Well, I have been eating more.
*"or what?" can mean pathetic
