|Why you little!|
|First Heard||Shut Up Simpsons|
"Why you little!" is one of Homer's catchphrases. Most of the time, it is followed by Homer strangling Bart for whatever reason, commonly being Bart insulting Homer verbally. Once, Homer doesn't strangle Bart because he is too far away, and another time, Homer strangles Bart for no reason. On this occasion, the catchphrase is echoed (“Mona Leaves-a”). Another time, Homer eats a fire stick and tries to burn Bart while strangling him (“Father Knows Worst”).

It is revealed in "Brawl in the Family" that Homer had strangled Bart since he was a baby because in the scene where Homer strangled Bart and Lisa told Marge the way she tried to pry them isn't working, Marge told her she had been prying them apart since before Lisa was born.
