Dialogue Edit

The Cost of Living Pt. 1Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Quimby Icon "I've got money. I've got influence. I've got much younger women. I am the er-uh epitome of success!"
"And yet no one respects me. It's as if wearing a sash doesn't carry the cachet it once did."
"It's time to remind the people why I got into politics – the enormous displays of wealth!"

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Quimby Icon "The Quimby Compound was worth every embezzled penny."
"And I, uh, taught those orphans an important lesson about living without doors."
"I, on the other hand, have hundreds of doors for my five floors, four wings, three kitchens, two spas, and a partridge in a pear tree. Bronzed, of course."
Freddy Quimby Icon "Hiya, Uncle. I, uh, got kicked out of limbo's country club so I'm back!"
"The movers have already moved the maid into my room."
Quimby Icon "Then you tell them to move her back!"
"She's a sexual harassment suit waiting to happen for me."

The Cost of Living Pt. 2 Edit

Character Dialogue
Freddy Quimby Icon "Now that I've finished selecting my butler, it's time to party like it's going on Viewtube! Where's my box of cats?"
Quimby Icon "Freddy, as the Mayor of Springfield, I'm expected to uphold a certain level of decorum."
"That's why I do all my dirty dealings in back alleys and sleazy motels."
Freddy Quimby Icon "Don't worry, Uncle. I've learned the Quimby code of discretion from my father, Clovis."
"He's the master! So discrete we haven't even seen him since he boarded that small plane years ago."
Quimby Icon "Well, I'm pretty sure this year isn't an election year, so we deserve to treat ourselves."

The Cost of Living Pt. 3 Edit

Character Dialogue
Freddy Quimby Icon "Butler, for breakfast, I'll have the hair of the dog that bit me... so I can make it into a coat."
"Plus some booze."
Wiggum Icon "Your breakfast is on Springfield's dime today. Welcome to the drunk tank, Mister Quimby!"
Freddy Quimby Icon "Joke's on you - my breakfast is on Springfield's dime everyday."
"And since I don't remember anything I did last night and truly horrible acts are said to haunt you forever, I must be innocent."
"I'd like my car and my complimentary gift bag."
Wiggum Icon "You'll get your complimentary gift bag on your day in court!"
*sigh* "That sounded a lot more menacing in my head."

The Cost of Living Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Wiggum Icon "Alright Freddy, time to get you to the courthouse for your arraignment."
"Plus a little extra time at Lard Lad's. The Wig's got a craving for D-nuts."
Lou Icon "I keep telling you, Chief -- neither of those nicknames is going to catch on."
Freddy Quimby Icon "You're making a mistake, Wiggum. Don't you understand that I'm rich?"
Wiggum Icon "Son, I've been making mistakes since the day I was born."
"I came out feet first."
"And sure, the justice system is just a dog and pony show if you're rich."
"Or cleaning up after a dog and pony show if you're poor."
"But we've got to go anyway."

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon "Frederick Quimby, you have been charged with a cornucopia of crimes, including defiling a cornucopia."
"Which, according to the Pilgrims who wrote our town charter, is punishable by death. How do you plead?"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Your Honor, you could hear how he pleads, or you could wrap this up and enjoy a complimentary lobster lunch buffet."
"As a man of the law, you must agree that letting all this lobster go to waste is itself a crime."
Judge Snyder Icon ...
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Fine, my client pleads not guilty."

Testify! Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon "Let's start with the witnesses."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "There are witnesses?!"
"What is the point of having money if it can't silence people?"
Judge Snyder Icon "Waylon Smithers, please take the stand and deliver your testimony."

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon "Mister Smithers, ignoring protocol, we have sworn you in on the Malibu Stacy Bible you brought from home."
"Now please tell us what you saw that night."
Smithers Icon "It was in between Mr. Burns' bedtime and his 4:00 AM “FDR got elected to a fifth term” nightmare."
"I stopped into Moe's for a flirtini, when Mister Quimby here showed up with a woman of loose morals."
Princess Kashmir Icon "The only thing loose about me is my willingness to take off my clothes for money."
"Everything else is off limits."
"Unless you pay me."
Smithers Icon "Mister Quimby forced me to be his “wingman” and dragged me all over town."
Freddy Quimby Icon "You should be on trial for being the worst wingman ever!"
"You said there'd be hotties at that Steelworkers Sausage Fest."
"There weren't even sausages... just lots of men!"

Testify! Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon "Selma Bouvier, please take the stand and deliver your testimony."

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon "Ms. Bouvier, please tell the court what you saw that night."
Selma Icon "Only if you tell the court if you're single or not..."
Judge Snyder Icon "Not a chance."
Selma Icon "Fine."
"Freddy and I crashed into each other outside of the Steelworkers Sausage Fest."
"Literally crashed - with our cars."
"Luckily I shaved my legs just a few months ago, so I was able to charm my way into a ride back to town with him."
"Sure, he was drunk and concussed, but he hadn't left me for dead, so I thought the date was going well."
"Right up until he drove off a bridge into the river, and left me for dead."
"Thank god buoyancy is my greatest skill."
Judge Snyder Icon "This is not looking good for you, Mister Quimby."
Freddy Quimby Icon "No, your honor, in the light of day, SHE'S not looking good!..."
"I mean no comment."

Testify! Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon "Kirk Van Houten, please take the stand and deliver your testimony."

Job Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon "Mr. Van Houten, please tell the court what you saw that night."
Kirk Icon "When I heard a knock on the door, I thought those girl scouts had a change of heart and wanted to give me back my hat."
"But instead Freddy burst in soaking wet, and challenged me to a drinking contest."
"Since I had to sell part of my liver to pay Luann's alimony during the divorce, I asked if I could have juice instead."
"But by then he was already hitting the whiskey, and on my wife."
Luann Icon "When we got back together, we agreed anything before second base isn't cheating."
Kirk Icon "You need to learn the rules of baseball, Luann!"
"Anyway, he said my crying was harshing the mood so he stumbled off, but not before he did unspeakable things to our mailbox."
Judge Snyder Icon "Tampering with the mail system – a federal crime!"
"Your list of offenses, like Superhero movies, just keeps getting longer."
"Who says Judge Reinhold is the only funny judge?"

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Freddy Quimby Icon "That's it? Pshaw!"
"As long as you don't call that dancing girl to the stand, I'll be home before my chow-dah gets cold."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Your honor, all comments muttered under my client's breath are to be considered hearsay."

— System Message


The Cost of Living Pt. 5 Edit

Character Dialogue
Freddy Quimby Icon "They found me, ah, guilty on all charges. The court is going to throw the, ah, book at me!"
Quimby Icon "Trust the, ah, system, Freddy."
Freddy Quimby Icon "But the justice system fails all the time! Why should I trust it?"
Quimby Icon "Not the justice system. The system of, ah, Ivy League graduates and family connections!"
"To the Rolodex!"

The Cost of Living Pt. 6 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon "Freddy, it's time to hear the sentence."
"Now remember, good or bad, we still walk out of that courtroom with our heads held high and my retainer fully paid."

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Freddy Quimby Icon "Your honor, before you read the sentence I'd like to say a few words."
Judge Snyder Icon "It probably would have been smarter to have said those words before the trial was over, but I have no one to go home to, so alright."
Freddy Quimby Icon "I did not inhale, have relations with that woman, or falsify reports regarding WMDs."
"One of those should get me out of this mess, right?"
Quimby Icon "I have something to say, Your, uh, Honor!"
"There's a new municipal by-law, issued this morning, that you, ah, must be aware of."
"It states "charges against any public figure must be reduced if the defendant regrets that he, or the less likely she, is caught."
"The defendant may also publicly enter any twelve-step program, but does not have to complete it."
"And may apologize on national television, but doesn't have to mean it."

The Cost of Living Pt. 7 Edit

Character Dialogue
Freddy Quimby Icon "I can't believe this! They gave me indefinite house arrest!"
Quimby Icon "Thanks to my buddy Gerry Mandering at city hall, your "house" now covers all of Springfield."
"He's a whiz at rezoning – he calls it Mandermania."
Freddy Quimby Icon "But what if I want French Caviar? Or Chinese Silk? Or Turkish Delight?"
Quimby Icon "All of those women make house calls and you know it."
"And if you follow the rules, you might get time off for good behavior."
Freddy Quimby Icon "Rules? You mean like take off my shoes while inside? Like an animal?"
"You might as well lock me up. Like an animal!"
