“I’m not a very nice person, you know,” Homer said.
“And I’m not the type of person to say anything.”
“I mean, my mother told me that,” Lisa added.
“She’s the type who’s always saying stuff like, ‘You’re a very rude, bad person, and I don’t like that.
You know that, don’t you?””
And it was the same thing with my father, he said,” Homer continued.”
You know, I’m a good guy.
I’m very, very kind, and he just doesn’t like me.””
But I do have some things in common with him.””
Well, he’s a lot nicer than you.””
He is very nice, I guess.””
And, by the way, I think he’s the one who beat her.””
In the Simpsons, that is,” Lisa said.
The episode concluded with the Simpson family talking about how much they were grateful for the “happiness of life”.
“But,” Homer explained, “the joy of it is short-lived.”
“It will not last,” Lisa declared.
“If you get out of the way of the car, I’ll kill you.”
