    Aw man, this is depressing. I was hoping we’d have him around for a few more years to come.

    God speed you glorious S.O.B.
    So, did they actually have him in to record his lines? I was always curious about this.

      Of course they didn’t have to, they could’ve used the same speech engine he used, but I think out of sheer respect (and not wanting to get totally sue’d) they got him into the studio anyway.

      Fun fact: If I recall correctly, it took him about a minute to speak 6 words using his fancy computer do-dad. Obviously less time using the most used pre-sets he’d have lined up, but longer if it was something a little off topic or unusual.

      Interesting if true.

        Why couldn’t they use the same speech engine?

          His “voice” was copyrighted.

              Right… because a world renowned physicist wanting his distinct electronic voice copyrighted is a “troll”. Don’t be an idiot.

                I fail to see why would Hawking need to protect the voice, if he was the copyright owner. And just because he was a famous scientific does not mean he wasn’t flawless. In fact he was a shitty person.

                  From what I’ve heard, he had kind of an abrasive personality at times, maybe made a few poor decisions, but he was far from being a “shitty” person. You want to stop throwing stones there, “Todd”?

      You know, I never knew who Larry Flynt was until I just now googled him, and now this line is 10 times funnier to me.

        Ralph Wiggum is great and all but Homer somehow confusing him with Hawking is my favorite Simpsons non-sequitur

    According to some notes the word “fruitopia” gave them trouble.
