Episode Quotes

Marge: [Seeing Lisa's bare room] I didn't realize you had gone this far.
Lisa: A great Musician only needs her instrument! And underwear, 'cause this dress is mighty short!
Lisa: [Walks into the Comic store to drop off some dolls] Goodbye, Businesswoman Malibu Stacy, Plus-Size Malibu Stacy and Non-Gender-Normative Malibu Stacy. Your attempts to enter the 21st Century brought joy to no-one. Are they worth anything?
Comic Book Guy: Oh, I'm afraid not, No.
Lisa: Take 'em. [as soon as she leaves, Comic Book Guy puts a $100 price tag on Businesswoman Stacy] Aha!
Comic Book Guy: [sarcastically] Oh, right. Because up until now, I've been a great guy.
Marge Simpson: If you don't find a home for that pig, I'm going to withhold...
Homer Simpson: [cuts her off] No, whatever you're going to withhold... anything but that!

  • SPOILER: "I will always love you" by Whitney Houston plays at the end of the episode.
  • This episode reveals that Spider-Pig (aka Plopper) has been living in the Simpsons' yard ever since the events of 'The Simpsons Movie.'
  • When Homer discards some of his old items, the Mr. Plow jacket is included. Barney reaches in the garage for that jacket, stating that he finally gets to be Mr. Plow. This is reference to the ninth episode of Season Four, aptly titled "Mr. Plow", where Homer and Barney became snow plowing business competitors.
