Top 5 Homer Simpson Quotes

By on March 22, 2013

In 2007, USA Today named Homer Simpson, the lead character in The Simpsons, as one of the most influential people of the past 25 years. He is flawed and at some point represents just about every inadequacy a person can have, but he is also a brilliant and irreverent mirror on life. We all know his famous catchphrase: D’oh! Here are his top 5 quotes.


1. “Operator! Give me the number for 911!”


This classic line is from season 2 of The Simpsons where Bart ruins Thanksgiving. Bart feels he has been wrongly punished and runs away. There is another great quote in the episode when Homer is saying grace: “Oh lord, be honest! Are we the most pathetic family in the universe or what?”


2. “To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.”


This very famous Homer Simpson quote is from the 8th season. It is the episode when prohibition is introduced in Springfield and Homer starts bootlegging. Homer makes this proclamation once the sale of alcohol is legalized again and Mayor Quimby asks gangster Fat Tony to flood the town with booze.


3. “Bart, you’re saying butt-kisser like it’s a bad thing!”

Bart the General

This is from the very first season of The Simpsons in an episode called Bart the General. Bart is being harassed by school bully Nelson so gets advice from a Vietnam veteran on how to fight back. Homer admonishes Bart with this quote after Bart calls Lisa: “Teacher’s pet. Apple polisher. Butt kisser.”


4. “Lisa, vampires are make-believe, like elves, gremlins, and Eskimos.”


This is from Treehouse of Horror IV from season 5. In the episode Homer sells his soul for a donut, Bart sees a gremlin on a bus, and Mr Burns is Dracula.


5. “That’s it! You people have stood in my way long enough. I’m going to clown college!”


This memorable quote is from Homie the Clown, an episode from season 6. In the episode, Homer is mistaken for Krusty the Clown after acting as his stand-in.
