[On a plague of bird-eating lizards that ate all of Springfield's pigeons]
Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply unleash wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.

"I also know this. When you see the tapes of him, you see a psychopath. Wait a minute. We have some of our own! Theodor Kasinsky, sitting around with nothing to do. Ted's played A Beautiful Mind, the home game. You give Ted a mailing list and some tools. ‘Ted, these people have been bad.’ ‘Are they bad?’ ‘Very bad!’ ‘I just want a few things.’ ‘Oh, I know you do!'

Or, we get Charles Manson. Great organizer, incredible with chicks. But, you can't use him. Chucky all the time comes out for parole with a swastika on his forehead. ‘I’m better. In many ways, yeah.’ ‘What would you do if you got out?' 'I'd kill everybody!’ Whoopsie!"
Robin Williams, Live on Broadway
