Well, I've just done a search and much to my shock and/or horror, there's no thread for Simpsons appreciation! Soooo thought I'd rectify that by starting one myself. Also because I'm drinking tea out of a Homer mug and thought it appropriate.
 
Do you find yourself saying "Anyhoo"? Do you answer the phone with "A-hoy hoy", or "Y-eeeello"? When things go your way, do you tap your fingers together and declare, "Excellent"? Do you remember me from such films as Help! The President's Got No Neck! and Dial P for Psycho? When people say, "It's some kind of--" do you interrupt with "--land cow"? In short, are you a Simpsons fan, your everyday conversation coloured forever by quotes from the show?
 
"Join me or die! Can you do any less?" 
Join me in the glory of the Simpsons Appreciation Thread.

I always answer the phone with 'a-hoy-hoy'! And when someone says that i'm something, I always say "...like a fox!"

"Excellent!"  Must admit, I find myself using "In theory. In theory, Communism works. In theory", pretty much on a daily basis! So versatile...

I LOVE the Simpsons.  I live for the Simpsons.  I find myself quoting it all the time.  Sure it has dropped off this year (Worst Episode Ever was the Ricky Gervais one) but I'll allow that after SEVENTEEN years of fantastic TV.

Quite frankly next to Sienfeld, the best TV ever.

My favourite episode is King-Size Homer, where Homer purposely gains 60 pounds so he can work from home, and has the absoloutly classic line 'And I find it ironic that dad's ass stopped an outbreak of Toxic Gas'.

Lines I Quote often:-

'Marriage is like a coffin, and each kid is like a nail in that coffin'
'Fat don't fail me now'
'Larry Flint is right'
'I wish god were alive to see this'
'Welcome to Dumpsville.  Population YOU'
'Three little words: I am gay'
'And awaaay we go'
'Whats up with you Moe, you used to be about the booze'
'It could be the middle of the night.  It could be when you least expect it'
'Fifty UFO's picked us up and you were Gang Probed'
'Homer 10.  International Terrorists 8'

Absoloute classic, in fact I'm gonna stick a disk of season 7 on right now.

Feckin Brilliant thread Shaunette.

I just bought the Simpsons season 7 and it was around that time that the best episodes were shown. Personally, the Simpsons is the gretatest TV programme in history.

"Welcome to Japan. The time is tomorrow."

"Oh my god!. Tramopoline! Trapopoline!"

"Making teenagers depressed is like shooting a fish in a barrel."

"Just do it. Examine your scalp for ringworm."

"Duffman, is thrusting in the direction of the problem!"

How do you live?? How can you communicate???

 
Favourite episodes: I LOVE the Hank Scorpio one; "Like these moccasins? They're yours!" "Here, could you hang my coat up for me? --That's right, we have no walls here! And look, I didn't even give you my coat!" "Where do you want to destroy, France or Italy? --Yeah, no one ever says Italy."
I also love the one where Homer and Flanders are on that father-son outing thing, Homer gets their raft lost at sea, dolphins laugh at them and say "You're all going to die!", and then Homer's listening to Ned's Walkman. That song, "Suger, do-do-DO-do-do-do, ahh honey-honey, do-do-DO-do-do-do, you are my candy girl--" and then everything melts and dissolves 'cos the Walkman runs out of batteries... Cracks me up every time! I've also managed to perfect the art of sounding like a song running slow. I should join the circus...
 
Also the episode with the lottery, where Homer imagines what he'd do if he won the lottery:
"Notice anything different about me, Lenny?"
"Uh, yeah, you're the tallest man in the world. And you're made of gold."

"Fifteen karat gold!"
*cut to giant golden Homer, covered in jewels and wearing a crown, destroying a city and laughing*

I find myself recreating that laugh -- and then having to explain to people where it got I from... And you'd be amazed how often I can work the following into everyday conversation (with some adjustments):
 
"You kids'll be in your cold, cold graves before that happens."
"Homer, stop talking about the children's graves."
 
"I'm going to lose my job! Just because I'm dangerously unqualified!"
 
"Homer! There's a man here that says he can help you!"
"Is it Batman?"
"No, he's a scientist."
"Batman's a scientist."
"It's not Batman."

 
"Have you been up all night eating cheese?"
"I think I'm blind."

 
"Careful! They're ruffled!"
"Don't worry, your tears say more than real evidence ever could."
"Dramatization. May not have happened."
"Television! Teacher; mother; secret lover."
"Oh, I like it better when they're making fun of people who aren't me."
"Duffman! Can't breathe! HUH!"
 
Incidentally, I'm still laughing at the reminder of "Duffman! Is thrusting int he direction of the problem!"

Im watching my Series 4 boxset now and I think the funniest line ever is during the Monorail episode where Homer is trying to seduce Marge and says

"Am I turning you on?
"No"
"What if I undo this button?"
"Goodnight homer"
*Adopts weird deep voice*
"What if I talk like this? What if sing to you?
#I gave my love a chicken it has no bone#
...Mmmm...Chicken..."

Im not doing it justice but it gets me everytime.

Well living in Turkey changes things a bit, you cant use the old shortcuts of Simpsons reference..

The Scorpio one for me too where he foils Bond characters escape, its better when they shake it up a bit...

Does Marge ever do anything?
it tends to be towards the end of the series when they remember shes around summed up when they make the Vincent Price, painted Egg kit or something and i felt it summed up there use of Marge on the show as a whole.

The Candy girl stuck in my head for months after that i couldnt escape it, then my dad told me when i was a baby they used to play the song to me, kind of strange, maybe its my link or maybe its just seeing homer dancing with lolly pops to the song???

And yes you should...

"I call him GAMBLOR!!!"

"Oh nothing, Marge, just a little incident with the Bogeyman!!" God, what a classic episode!  Next pet I get, I'm calling him Gamblor. That's final.
 
I also love the Treehouse of Horror with King Homer:
"I hate Ape Island. I wish we were going to Candy Apple Island."

"Candy Apple Island? What do they have there?"
"Apes. But they're not so big."
 
And the one with Herb Simpson, where he invents the baby-translater:
"How can I ever repay you?"
"Please don't hurt me!"
"Consider it done."

 
I also find myself using, "I'm....going outside, to....stalk...Lenny and Karl.."
 
Punchdrunk, Marge doesn't really do much; she's more the straight man to Homer's idiot. But it works! The Lisa episodes tend to be the weakest for me -- except for the classic where she becomes a vegetarian. They go to Storybook Town, and there's the scene with Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and Mamma Bear is broken and speaks in a deformed robot-voice... Also with the three increasingly adorable lambs: when middle-cute lamb steps back in front of super-cute lamb, and Homer shoves it to one side and says, "Out of the way, you."  Such a useful line in everyday life...Then the pig at the barbeque: "It's just a little airbourne, it's still good it's still good!!" That can be trotted out anytime you drop food on the floor..

Yeah, it's the excellent Harry Shearer.  Who's best role is Derek Smalls in This is Spinal Tap.  The name Derek Smalls always makes me laugh.

Aparantly Harry Shearer and Hank Azaria improvise the scene's between Skinner and Superintendant Chamlbers.  Quality.

Just seen a couch gag where all the couch's turn into ravonous zombie furniture.  Fantastic.

More Voice actors, complete cast-
Part 1.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCxmuuc4JIk

Part 2.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4UCbvTArlQ&NR

Not sure about this its the cast but it verges from annoying to pretty funny the use of clips is very off putting as the point of the real life actors being there is that we always only hear there voices.

Yeah, but what're you going to do?
 
I love Comic Book guy:
"I must hurry back to my comic book store, where I dispense the insults, rather than absorb them."
 
Comic Guy: "How do you feel about forty-year old Star Trek fans who live with their parents?"
Girl at Comic-Con: "Comb the Sweet-Tarts out of your beard and you're on!"
"Don't try and change me, baby."
 
Homer: "I'd like a mint condition copy of Spider-Man number 1, please."
Comic Book Guy: "And I'd like an hour on the holo-deck with Seven of Nine."

 
Plus there's the classic, where Bart joins a boy-band:
Bart: "Who are you?"
Agent: "You'll find out in due time."
B: "It says here you're L. T. Smash."
A: "The time has come. I'm L. T. Smash."

 
Homer: "Will you two shut up? I'm missing precious DJ-banter."
 
Lisa:"You're being brain-washed!"
Otto: "Yeah, probably."

 
Navy officer: "The hippy-fantasy again?"
L.T. Smash: "They're getting less frequent."

 
Bart: "Dad, L.T.'s gone crazy!"
Homer: "Yeah, that's the look."

 
Kent Brockman: "Arnie, this is not the time..."
Arnie Pie: "You're not the time, Kent! YOU'RE not the time!!"

 

 
There was an excellent episode on this afteroon; where Bart sells his soul! Such a classic. "I need a soul, Ralph. Any soul. YOURS!" And the glory of Uncle Moe's Family Feedbag. It just cracks me up; especially as there are times at work where I feel like just breaking down and screaming like Moe does.
 
There ahve been some great comedy series out there, but have to say for outright quote-ability The Simpsons has it!

My god there are so many excellent Simpson's quotes. Some of my favourite are:

Homer: I thought had an appitite for destruction but all I ever wanted was a club sandwich
Marge: Ooh look theres one in this cooler
Peter Frampton: Awwwwwww

Sonic Youth: Aww come on Mr Frampton you cant eat ALL that watermelon!

Lisa: Wait a minute, youre not L.T. Smash, youre Liutenant Smash
LT Smash: Yes thats right Liutenant L.T. Smash.

Troy McClure: This is my wedding night, Im trying to sleep!

Superintendant Chalmers: Skinner, whats that in your kitchen?
Skinner: Errr Aurora Borealis
Chalmers: Aurora Borealis! In this part of the world! At this time of day! Localised in your kitchen!!
Skinner: Yes
Chalmers: .......can I see it?
Skinner: No

Ralph Wiggim: I bent my Wookie

Flanders: Gabriels Trumpet!! You know what this means boys?
Rodd and Todd: Yay! Judgement Day!

Smithers: I think women and seamen don't mix
Burns: Yes we all know what YOU think

Krabbapple: He exchanged my birth-control pills for TIC TACS!!

*after seeing ComicBookGuy and Mrs Skinner in bed*
Eddie: *vomits*
Lou: Don't worry. If it doesn't affect you, youre not human.

Kent Brockman: That hat has been with us for 25 years. It had one day left to retirement!

Theres so many more trying to get my attention that Im having Simpson's quote block so I'll leave you with one more:

Marge: Come on Homer, you'll like Japan. You liked Rashomon
Homer: Thats not how "I" remember it.

That's got to be my favourite.

Also like the scene where there are filming Radioactive Man with Rainer Wolfcastle who gets covered in acid but is given a pair of safety goggles.

"Da goggles; dey do nothing"  again not doing it justice but gets me every time.

I love the episode where Apu is to be sent back to India and Abe talks about when he was a boy. These lines cracked me up (don't take me word perfect, can't remember)
*shows son a picture of statue of liberty in a book*
Abes dad: Son, this is where we're gonna live. May be not today, maybe not tomorrow, but some day...
*Abe voiceover* Later that day we set sail for America
*shows Abe playing with hoop on Statue of Liberty and the washing line is out. And Abe's mum pops out of the nostril
"Abe, supper time!"

 I think you get which part I mean. That is one of the funniest things. And I think Marge equals Homer on funniness. Mad marge dancers. One where Marge hides behind a cactus. I just think Marge is ace. Bart can be annoying sometimes and Lisa is just plain, meh. But it works in it's weird way. They bounce off one another.

Also like the scene where there are filming Radioactive Man with Rainer Wolfcastle who gets covered in acid but is given a pair of safety goggles.

"Da goggles; dey do nothing"  again not doing it justice but gets me every time.




Oh my fucking god that is one of the funniest lines ever. I'm cracking up at my desk just reading it on a forum!

Rainier Wolfcastle and Jay Sherman discussing Wolfcastle's new movie "a mixture of action und comedy.  It's called McBain: Let's Get Silly.":

Wolfcastle: "My new movie is me standing in front of a brick wall for 90 minutes.  It cost 80 million dollars to make."
Sherman: "How do you sleep at night?"
Wolfcastle: "On top of a pile of money with many beautiful women."
Sherman: "Just askin'."

Ralph Wiggum's also a legend:
Ralph: "That's my swingset, and that's my sandbox. I'm not allowed to go in the deep end. And this is where I met the leprechaun."
Bart: "Right, the leprechaun."
Ralph: "He told me to burn things."
