Oh, How Do We?[edit]

Excuse me? Lisa Simpson with the school paper. Am I to understand you're purposely denying education to these children?
Skinner and Chalmers:
Well I-- / That is to say-- / You see the thing is--
Superintendent Chalmers:
I warn you, young lady, we can fumfur all day.
Skinner and Chalmers:
We uh-- / You see-- / About that--
You haven't heard the last of this!
Superintendent Chalmers:
[thinking she left the room] Well, I think we've heard the last of this.
No, you haven't!
Seymour Skinner:
We're gonna have to give this some thought.
Superintendent Chalmers:
Let's sing while we think. It'll make it more fun for everyone.
Seymour Skinner:
How do we gag a blabbermouth like Lisa?
Superintendent Chalmers:
How do we crush her First Amendment rights?
Seymour Skinner:
How do we stop her writing up what she saw?
Superintendent Chalmers:
Would she shut her trap?
Seymour Skinner:
For a gift card from the Gap?
Skinner and Chalmers:
She might.
Oh how do we stop a royal pain like Lisa?
How do we make this righteous less uptight?
Seymour Skinner:
You have a lovely voice, sir.
Superintendent Chalmers:
[sighs] Why do you have to make everything weird?

Motivate Them[edit]

You asked to see me?
Seymour Skinner:
Lisa, would you consider tutoring Cletus's children?
Superintendent Chalmers:
You'll be happy, they'll be happy, and I can go home and enjoy some delicious fondue.
Seymour Skinner:
Made with the... fondue set I bought you for Christmas?
Superintendent Chalmers:
No. So what do you say, Lisa?
Me? A tutor.
The hillbilly tykes,
Will become my tutees.
[slips and falls]
Hey, kids, the plow mule done burst a girl critter!

Cultural Things Experience[edit]

These colorful bumps is funny.
And guess what? Ben and Ken the Street Magic Men are only the beginning. The city is a treasure trove of culture and multiculture.
Mistos and lattes and grandes and ventis,
Browsing at bookstores with fat cognoscentis.
Comic Book Guy:
Books about Dali, Degas, and Miro,
Those are the folks that you yokels should know.
Pretentious laughs at Bunuel retrospectives,
Outsider art made by mental defectives.
Jitney Spuckler:
Enjoying opry that ain't grand or ole.
Birthday Spuckler:
Comparing Jim Carrey to Dario Fo!
Your minds are opening! Take it home!
Incest Spuckler:
Eating tapas,
Dubya Spuckler:
Freestyle rap-as.
Mrs. Skinner is Mame.
Agnes Skinner:
I'll charm the husk right off of your corn!
Lisa and Kids:
We finally experienced cultural things,
And now they don't seem,
So lame!
What a number! You kids got talent! And I should know, I used to have it.

Moonshine Drinkers[edit]

Whitney Spuckler:
I have eight teeth goin' on seven teeth.
Jitney Spuckler:
I have a curvy spine.
Dubya Spuckler:
We live on landfill...
Crystal Meth Spuckler:
And feast on roadkill...
Birthday Spuckler:
While we all drink moonshine.
