* '''Worst. Meme. Ever.''' Comic Book Guy's most well-known catch phrase, "[[WorstWhateverEver Worst. (Noun). Ever.]]" (usually [[PunctuatedForEmphasis punctuated that way]] on the Internet) has become a meme of epic proportions. The TV show even used it as one of its episode titles (appropriately "Worst Episode EVER", though it actually refers to a ''cardiac'' episode).
* And Kent Brockman, for one, [[TheQuisling welcomes our new insect overlords]]. He'd like to remind them as a trusted TV personality, he can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

* "[[OverlyLongGag DENTAL PLAN!]]" "Lisa needs [[BracesOfOrthodonticOverkill braces]]!" [[labelnote:Explanation]]In the episode "Last Exit to Springfield" of season four, Homer plays back Lenny's "So long, dental plan!" cheer, along with Marge's warning that Lisa needs braces, over and over in his head until he realizes that if Burns takes away his dental plan, he'll have to front the money for an expensive (and hideously ugly) set of braces to fix Lisa's teeth.[[/labelnote]]

The line frequently appears in discussions about Carter, [[PoesLaw with varying degrees of sarcasm and seriousness]].[[/labelnote]]
* I have to go now. My planet needs me.
** Note: Character died on the way to his home planet. [[labelnote:Explanation]]The ending of "The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie Show" has Poochie crudely edited to say this line and fly away, in an effort to kill him off as fast as humanly possible.[[/labelnote]]
* WELCOME THRILLHO[[labelnote:Explanation]]From "Marge Be Not Proud" - Milhouse's entry on the "Enter Your Name" screen on the "Bonestorm" game is just a few letters short (he wanted "THRILLHOUSE").[[/labelnote]]
