Larry King: Now even though we're being broadcast on... FOX, there's no need for obnoxious hooting and hollering.
Principal Skinner: Bart, by special order of the Mayor's office, you're being held back.

Bart: Kindergarten?
Mrs. Krabappel: [pops champagne] Ha!
Sideshow Bob: No children have ever meddled with the Republican Party and lived to tell about it.

  • The famous snake's name "Humphrey Boa-Gart" is an obvious pun on the name of Humphrey Bogart.
