Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki
"Rabbi, did not a great man say and I quote, "the Jews are a swinging bunch of people. I mean I've heard of persecution, but what they went through is ridiculous! But the great thing is after thousands of years of waiting and holding on and fighting they finally made it." End quote."
"I never heard the plight of my people phrased so eloquently. Who said that? Was that Rabbi Hillel?"
Rabbi Krustofsky
"Judah the Pious? Maimonides? Ooh, I got it! The Dead Sea Scrolls!"
―Rabbi Krustofsky
" I'm afraid not, Rabbi. It's from "Yes I Can" by Sammy Davis, Jr. An entertainer, like your son."
"The Candy Man?"
―Rabbi Krustofsky[src]
