Memorable Quotage

  • Grampa: You know when I was your age, I had to walk 20 miles, just to get school, and back then we didn't have pacifiers, we had to suck on pieces of wood, and in my day, we didn't have TV sets we used to sit on our Grampa's lap all evening and listen politely to his entertaining stories.
    Bart: Was your Grampa a liar too?
    Grampa: No, but his lap was awful slippery.
  • Grampa: And suddenly, the Happy little elf, STOPPED!
    Lisa: Why did the Happy Little Elf stop?
    Grampa: Because he realised, that he was actually, a clumsy little elf.
  • Lisa: Which do you prefer Bart? The Gas Chamber? Or the Electric Chair?

  • For some reason, there is a picture of a plane taking a nose dive

Again, Bart gets his comeuppance. Not really much to laugh at really.
