-->'''Lisa:''' What, Aunt Patty?\\
'''Patty:''' Oh, nothing, dear. I'm just trashing your father.\\
'''Lisa:''' Well, I wish you wouldn't because, aside from the fact that he has the same frailties as all human beings, he's the only father I have. Therefore, he is my model of manhood, and my estimation of him will govern the prospects of my adult relationships. So I hope you bear in mind that any knock at him is a knock at me, and I am far too young to defend myself against such onslaughts.\\
'''Patty:''' Mm hm. Go watch your cartoon show, dear.

* {{Irony}}: When Bart sits on Homer's lap, Homer announces himself as "Jolly Old St. Nick" in an angry tone of voice. For context though, it's because he's getting frustrated with Bart trolling him (unaware that's his father dressed as Santa).
