Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington
When Flanders Failed
Bart the Murderer
Akira: We practice karate, so that we never need use it.
Bart: Excuse me. I already know how not to hit a man. Can I practice with nunchucks?

Marge: Bart, don't use the Touch of Death on your sister!

Homer wins a game of wishbone. He then thinks of a good wish.
Homer pictures Ned with his pockets inside out denoting bankruptcy.
Homer: Hmmm...
Homer again pictures Ned again with the "airplane pockets" look, only now standing in front of "Flanders' Stupid Left-Handed Store" with a "Going Out of Business" sign.
Homer: Yeah!
Homer pictures a tombstone engraved with "R.I.P. Ned Flanders"
Homer: Too far.
Homer returns to his fantasy of Ned's store gone bust, then the dream cloud evaporates
Maude: So what did you wish for?
Ned: Uh uh uh! Do not say it, or else it will not come true!
Homer: Don't worry, you will soon see for yourself.
Homer laughs to himself, then it becomes progressively louder. He is doing this with his mouth full, causing Maude and Ned to stare at his strange and uncouth behavior.

Man: Hey, I hear you validate parking tickets without purchase.
Ned: Oh, right as rain! Or, as we say around here, `left as rain', heh heh.
Man: Just stamp the ticket.
Ned: Oh, okay.

Ned: At times like these, I used to turn to the Bible and find solace, but even the Good Book can't help me now.
Homer: Why not?
Ned: I sold it to you for seven cents.
Homer: Oh.

Homer: Ned, I am sorry your store did not work out.
Ned: No, Homer, you were right!
Homer: I was?
Ned: Yes! You tried to warn me against engaging in risky ventures! I should have known better than to gamble my family's future on some pig in a poke! You were an honest friend to me, and I appreciate that.
Ned's words come down hard on Homer, who until now has been envious of Ned's success. Seeing a bankrupt Flanders family has not given Homer satisfaction, but plenty of guilt.
Homer: {resolved tone} Ned, how much longer do you have the store?
Ned: Three days. After that it becomes headquarters for the Libertarian Party of Springfield. And I really hope they have better luck than I do.
Homer: You open up that store at 9 in the morning, I will do the rest!

Homer is on the phone.
Homer: Hello Jerry? This is Homer Simpson. Remember last month when I paid back that loan? Yeah, well now I need you to do a favor for me!

(Homer is sitting out the barbeque.)
Homer: Stupid Flanders! Go ahead, Marge, have a ball. What if they came back and I was dead from not eating? They'd cry their eyes out. "We should have never gone to the Flanders'. Oh, why did we go to the Flanders' house and leave Homer alone with no food?" And I'd be laughing -- laughing from my grave. Heh, heh, heh.
