Get two Simpsons fans in a room, and they’ll have a conversation that is 80 percent quotes from the show. (“Aw, you can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Forty percent of all people know that.”) The combination of 500-plus episodes and consistently hilarious writing has resulted in a cache of quotable lines unlike any that has ever been amassed by one show. Vulture has very scientifically (“Science is like a blabbermouth who ruins a movie by telling you how it ends”) determined the most essential, most memorable, most perfectly cromulent quotes, from chimpan-a to chimpan-zee (fine, that one doesn’t make sense — d’oh!). If your favorite isn’t here (don’t blame us, we voted for Kodos), please throw it in the comments. Enjoy while we replenish those sold-out Bort license plates.
