Homer Simpson on beer and alcohol  
Homer no function beer well without.

Here's to alcohol, the cause of—and solution to—all life's problems.

Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose: it's how drunk you get.

Son, a woman is like a beer. They smell good, they look good, you'd step over your own mother just to get one! But you can't stop at one. You wanna drink another woman!

Oh no! What have I done? I smashed open my little boy's piggy bank, and for what? A few measly cents, not even enough to buy one beer. Wait a minute, lemme count and make sure... not even close.

Marge, I'm going to Moe's. Send the kids to the neighbors, I'm coming back loaded!

All right, brain, I don't like you and you don't like me, so let's just do this and I'll get back to killing you with beer.

I would kill everyone in this room for a drop of sweet beer.

Now son, you don't want to drink beer. That's for daddies, and kids with fake IDs.

Beer! How did you know?

Ah, beer, my one weakness. My Achilles heel if you will.

Well, I don't think that The Simpsons really deserve credit for that second one.

And from last night's halloween episode...

No Beer and No TV make Homer Go Crazy (scrawled all over the walls of a room)

Damn... I forgot that one. It's one of my favourites. More accurately this is:

Homer: No beer and no TV make Homer something something.

Marge: Go crazy?

Homer: Don't mind if I do!

That's what he actually says, then later on (I think) in a room with a typewriter, Marge goes in and thinks she's going to find an insight into his mind by reading what he's typed. Hmm..."Feelin' Fine". That's great!

Then lightning flashes and the walls of the room are lit up with scrawls of something like that. Not sure if I got it exactly right though. And I'd forgotten about the 'something something' bit, that's pretty funny too.

I believe the quote comes after Marge reads the walls, that's why she is able to fill in the blanks.

Great episode. Kubrick's The Shining is one of my favourite psychological thrillers. Truly scary.

Ah, ok. Thanks for the clarification.

Kubrick's The Shining - is this the same as Steven King's The Shining?

Stanley Kubrick directed a film adaptation of Stephen King's novel. However, it is important to be specific about it being Kubrick's version, because there is a more recent mini-series version.

Apparently the mini-series sticks a lot closer to King's book, but that's not necessarily a good thing.

Anyway, it is Kubrick's film that this particular Simpsons episode is parodying. Quite well, too.

Damn... I forgot that one. It's one of my favourites.

Mine too. Was watching the Kubrick movie the other week and couldn't stop laughing in places...damned evil Simpsons quotes lodging themselves in my head...

"Hmm, that's odd. Usually the blood gets off at the second floor."**

"But don't be reading my mind between four and five. That's Willy's time!"

"Can't murder now: eating."

"Television! Teacher, mother, secret lover."

"Urge to kill...fading...fading...fading -- rising! Fading...fading"

** For some reason this is my current fave. I know it's not the funniest line in the ep...but it cracks me up.

Most amusing :)

"OK brain, I don't like you and you don't like me. So let's just get though this together so I can get back to slowly killing you with beer."

Or words to that effect.
