- “Mm-hmm, well, that's...very good...for a first try. You know what? I have a ball. (Pulls one from his pocket) Perhaps you'd like to bounce it?”
- ―Mr. Taylor
Mr. Taylor or Professor Taylor is Allison Taylor's father. He enjoys playing anagrams.
Mr. Taylor is introduced by greeting Lisa when she visits Allison's house and trying to play a game of anagrams with her, only to get an inadequate, awkward response from Lisa. Thinking she is one of the dim-witted second-graders, he gives her a ball and asks her if she'd like to bounce it.
He is later seen taking Allison to Springfield General Hospital for a vaccination of the "Housecat Virus" and is forced to push his daughter out of the way so she wouldn't get run over by Mr. Burns. Strangely, he has paler skin and darker hair in the episode.
