Quote of the Day

Homer at the Bat9

“You make me sick, Homer.  You’re the one who told me I could do anything if I just put my mind to it!” – Bart Simpson
“Well, now that you’re a little bit older, I can tell you that’s a crock!  No matter how good you are at something there’s always about a million people better than you.” – Homer Simpson
“Gotcha.  Can’t win, don’t try.” – Bart Simpson

    I feel there’s a lot to say about Bart’s response – it could have been much worse if it had been written oh-so-slightly differently. A truly great show would have ended with Homer’s comment, but it’s the Simpsons that managed to add to it.

    Normally, giving him a semi-passionate remark followed by a brief, immediate acceptance would have been weird and out-of-character. But instead of making him backpedal or just giving out a quick “nevermind”, Bart gives out a brief “gotcha”. He’s more than happy to just replace a seemingly deep-seated moral with a why-botherism.

    It speaks volumes about both himself, and his upbringing. Lisa would have sounded defeated if she were to say this line. Bart’s totally cool with it.

    It’s all darwinian, ain’t it?

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
