** Homer set up a dummy Homer at work while he was off doing something else, one part of which was a cassette tape of himself singing "She Works Hard for the Money". The dummy got promoted because it had a good attitude, and got moved to a corner office. Then the tape machine broke, causing the song to slow down, then speed up and after getting to the end saying "turn tape over". Somehow reaching the end causes the whole thing to light on fire.
** In a Halloween special, when the Simpson family's electronic housekeeper goes insane, it changes from smooth talking (voiced by Pierce Brosnan!) to slurred insults. The Simpsons were dismantling it. The voice changed when they took out the chip meant to give it the suave English voice.
** And then there was the robotic Richard Simmons (in a DeletedScene). After scaring off Homer and accosting Smithers, Mr. Burns and Bart, Smithers shoots it in the face with a shotgun. Its face reforms like the Terminator. It then goes critical while singing and dancing, ultimately exploding.
** "Linguo... ''is''... deeeeead..."
