Favourite Simpsons Character

#1 Posted by MrsJ (305 posts) - - Show Bio

Which is your favourite Simpsons character? Is it one of the classics such as Bart or Homer? Is it a character that rarely appears? Is it Ned or the officer? Well, I'd like to know who and why.

My favourite is without a doubt the Comic Book Guy. He has an amusing voice, his smart and everytime there is an allusion created by him I get it! There hasn't been one I've missed; and if I did I probably wouldn't have noticed. Oh and his catch phrase is great you can use it on anything, "Worst. Game. Ever", or "Worst. Song. Ever" or wherever you'd wish to use it for.

My favourite quote by him however is in an episode of "the tree house of horror" and Mr. Burns is trying to play a hunting game with humains, saying "I'll be kind and give you a head start. Now go, run for 5 mins" The comic book guy quickly replies, "run for 5mins!? Why don'y you shoot me now." So he gets shot. It was quite the scene.

Homer. He's the man for his time.

But I think just about everyone who's frequented comic book shops over the years has met a shopowner they are sure was the basis for Comic Book Guy. There's one by me who has been in business for over 20 years now and I have no idea how. He's rude, overbearing, knows-it-all-and-you-don't, has display cases full of things "you can't buy", snide signs all over the store, and even has an old promotional poster on the wall with a tag that reads "you don't have enough money to buy this, so don't even ask."!

Hey, that's a good Simpsons topic: "Comic Book Guys you have known."

Wiggum and Homer are tied for second in my opinion.

Comic Book Guy is hilarious, I always get his jokes, so he's one of the funniest, definitely.

Homer is always good, because despite being a moron and generally screwing things up, there are a few moments where he does things right and it's quite touching (My personal fave: "Do it for her").

"Ahh, this should provide adequate sustenece for the Doctor Who marathon..."

He's my fave as well!

1) Dr Fink (Frink, Fvink whatever). That man rules, with the chemicals, and the explosions, and the fighting robots, and the coats on fire, and the monkey took my glasses!

2) Ralph Wiggum - Need no explanation.

3) Homer - Every mans aspiration.

Lionel Hutz, Fat Tony, Homer, Bart, Lisa, Troy, Willie, Wiggum, Grampa, Apu and Moe are cool, but Sideshow Bob is the best!

BOB: "Soon I will kill you."
SELMA: "Huh?"
BOB: "'Son pied sentit beau.' - french for, 'her foot smells lovely.'"
SELMA: "Oh."
BOB: "Prepare to be murdered."
SELMA: "Huh?"
BOB: "'Hai pa de babe mu' that's...sanskrit for 'Your toes are like perfume.'" (I think Bob made this one up).
SELMA: "Ah."
BOB: "Voy a matar a usted."
SELMA: "Wha?"
BOB: "That's Spanish for 'I'm going to kill you.'"

LAWYER: "Robert, if you were released, would you pose any threat to one Bart Simpson?"
SIDESHOW BOB: "Bart Simpson? The spirited little scamp who twice foiled my evil schemes and sent me to this dank, urine-soaked hell-hole?"
PAROLE PANEL: "We object to the term 'urine-soaked hell-hole' when you could have said, 'pee-pee soaked heck-hole'."
SIDESHOW BOB: "Cheerfully withdrawn!"
PAROLE PANEL LADY: "What about that tatoo on your chest, doesn't it say 'Die Bart, die'?"
SIDESHOW BOB: "No, that's German for, 'The Bart, the.'"
PAROLE PANEL LADY: "Oh! No one who speaks German could be an evil man!"

MARGE: "You awful man! Stay away from my son!"
SIDESHOW: "Oh, I'll stay away from your son alright - stay away forever!
HOMER: "Oh no!"
SIDESHOW: "Wait a minute - that's no good. Eeeugheeugheueoo!"
(Bob leaves, then returns): "Wait, I've got a good one now - Marge - say, 'Stay away from my son!' again."
MARGE: "No."
SIDESHOW: "Eeeugheeugheeoo..."

"Oh, that was a big mistake, Bart. No children have ever meddled with the Republican Party and lived to tell about it."

"The truth? You can't handle the truth. No truth-handler, you! Bah! I deride your truth-handling abilities!"

BOB: "Oh come, now. You wanted to be Krusty's sidekick since you were five! What about the buffoon lessons? The four years at clown college?"
CECIL (Bob's brother): "I'll thank you not to refer to Princeton that way."

BOB: "Just the thought of all that raw, surging power makes me wonder why the hell I should care."
CECIL: "Because, you'll be supervising the construction crew."
BOB: "Oh great, whenever a woman walks by, I suppose it will be my job to lead the hooting: "Oh yeah! Shake it madam! Capital knockers!""

BOB: "You've brought shame to this family, Cecil. Oh I don't relish having to write the Christmas letter this year."
CECIL: "Nor I to read it

BOB (about to be put in jail again): "But you can't do this! I saved the children's lives. I'm a hero!"
CECIL: "Tell them they'll live to regret this."
BOB: "You'll live to regret this! Oh thanks a lot, now I look crazy."
