Lisa:
Willie, I hope I'm not being too personal, but you seem resigned to a life of abject squalor.
Groundskeeper Willie:
Ma fam'ly's used to it. Me granfather used to get sent down into th' mines to make sure it was safe fer th' canaries.
Lisa:
Don't you ever hope for anything better?
Groundskeeper Willie:
Sumthin' better? For Willie?
All I want
Is a place sumwhere.
(pause)
Lisa:
Annnnnd?
Groundskeeper Willie:
That's it.
Bart:
Maybe you could aim a little higher.
Groundskeeper Willie:
Well, let's see.
Oh, to have me shack rebilt,
Git my rotten teeth all drilt.
Sumthing on underneath me kilt.
Oh, wouldn't it be adequate?
Matching shoes for both me feet,
Dining on untainted meat,
A toilet wot still has its seat.
Homer:
Oh, wouldn't it be adequate?
Lisa and Bart:
Adequate, adequate.
Groundskeeper Willie:
Oh, wouldn't it be adequate?
Hmm, yer right, Lisa. I do want ta better me lot. To live like a normal li-
Bart:
Heeeeey, that's great, good night.
