  • And during the credits:
    Homer: (sobbing at Moe's) No man should have to outlive his fictional wizard!

  • This exchange after Lisa's story about Milhouse and the Gauntlet.

He writes "So long suckers" in the blackboard, the bell rings and he bursts through the school entrance driving Homer's car, and does the same gags from the original opening while driving.

  • Every time Homer calls Bart.
    Homer: I'm drunk come pick me up, I'm in Chinatown, not our Chinatown.

391 - Springfield Up

  • The Reveal concerning Eleanor Abernathy.
  • The documentary style of the episode lends itself to great jump cuts. This interview with Homer and Marge is probably the best.

    24-year old Homer: No way. You'll never see a couple of rugrats tying me down.

  • Child!Homer for some reason thought that Desmond was a genie.

    Desmond: I decided not to waste any more film on him after that.

392 - Yokel Chords

394 - Homerazzi

  • We have the following:
    Fireman: Mr. Simpson, we've already been here six times this month!
    Homer: Yeah, but, um, one of those times, I'd actually dialed 9-1-1 by accident but I was too embarrassed to admit it, so I set the house on fire. It feels good to tell the truth! No, I'm lying, it feels bad.
  • Also all of J. K. Simmons' lines as the "Jameson-ish" tabloid reporter.
    (looking through Homer's Photos)

    Homer: I wanted to remember my place in a book I was reading.

    Homer: Not naked I haven't!
  • "The Shadow Knight? He's the most evil, destructive player in the game. He once beat me to death with my own life bar." It was either funny or unsurprising that the most evil, destructive, and successful (in Marge's words) player in the game was Bart.
  • After the original Shadow Knight/Night is killed, Marge becomes the new one and is shown kicking Moe's character's head like a soccer ball.
    Moe: (a head she's kicking around): "Why am I paying $14.95 a month for this?"
  • (Homer notices a guy waving a orange/yellow flag.)
    Homer: What's the matter buddy? The American flag not good enough for ya? (headbutts him)
    Girl: That was my father!
    Homer: (completely serious) I'm your father now.
  • (Helen Lovejoy's remark to Homer for a bad call)
    Helen: You are so blind even Jesus couldn't heal you!
    Rev. Lovejoy: Now Helen, let's not bring up the "J" bomb.

    Bart: This isn't a helicopter!

    Jimbo: Let's all act stupid!
  • Another scene from the bus ride:

C - There's No Business Like Moe Business

  • The whole thing is depicted as an in-universe stage musical, all the violence being fake (though, in the case of Homer's Body Horror situation, rather realistic).
  • While Homer is trapped impaled on Moe's distiller (causing his blood to end up in the beer, which Moe takes advantage of as it makes Marge more willing to see him as her lover), he convinces Marge that Homer left her. How? By telling her that he came out of the closet. Homer proceeds to sing a flashy musical number about wanting to have sex with men from around the world. It's as hilarious as it sounds.

    Lisa: Bart! (grabs Larry) If you don't want him, give him to me.
    Bart: How come you never act like this when I'm cruel to real animals?
    Lisa: I do, it enrages me!
    Bart: I thought you Hindus were supposed to love everybody.
    Lisa: (angrily) I'm a FREAKING BUDDHIST!!
    • Likewise, the main story, filled with Cassandra truths, brick jokes, ironic and meaningful echoes, laced with a heaping helping of good, old-fashioned shout-outs to make any elderly viewer laugh. One exchange in particular takes place during Abe's reminiscing of being a shoe-shiner on the platform for the Tinsletown (a.k.a. Hollywood) express. As the train pulls in, out steps the usual parodies of classic actors like Fatty Arbuckle, the Three Stooges, and Paul Muni (who, apparently, always looked like Frankenstein, even in real life), and Abbot and Costello. Abe looks up, realizes that he's shining the shoes of Clark Gable, and this exchange takes place:
    Young Abraham: (excitedly) Clark Gable!
    Gable: That's right! Perhaps you've seen my brief yet memorable appearance in Du Barry, Woman of Passion?
    Young Abraham: (excitedly) I sure have, Mr. Gable! Say, why haven't you been in any good pictures yet?
    Gable: I'm not sure. Maybe the right role just hasn't come along yet. Say, what's that you're reading?
    Young Abraham: Oh, this? It's just Gone with the Wind. It's got a boring romance story, and only one swear word, but not a very good one. Here, you can have it.
    Gable: (curiosity raised) Gone With The Wind, eh? Let's see... (flips through pages) Garbage, garbage, my line, garbage, my line, garbage, garbage, my line, epic war plot, fancy dresses, Yes! I can do this! (closes book, hops on train) (shouting) Thanks, kid! Don't tell this to another soul for about 60 years!

An informational play is carried out with Skinner and Willie acting as Bart and the girl respectively, and the two of them, rather uneagerly, kissing each other. When everyone in the assembly hall starts laughing at this, Superintendent Chalmers steps in and threatens to make them keep kissing until the kids stop laughing. Needless to say it doesn't stop.
