Okay, The Simpsons clearly isn't what it used to be, and its also a prime example of a TV show that has gone on for way too long. Nevertheless, there are some classic episodes where almost every line is hilarious. Here are my Top 5
- (I have a lot of free time on my hands) I haven't read any other top Simpsons list and this is entirely from memory basically so I've probably missed a tonne of good ones. I've obviously gone online and found the quotes though just to make sure I didn't butcher them. The list is in no particular order. I just numbered them so I don't forget how many I've done
1. Deep Space Homer : When Homer goes into Space. There are so many classic moments and references to popular entertainment. Easily one of the most memorable for me.

Brockman: And I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.Bart: Awww, they were about to show close ups of the rodRace: They'll clog the instrumentsBuzz: Careful, they're ruffled2. Homer at the Bat :Following the Nuclear power plant softball team, Mr Burns brings in a whole lot of ringers who have hilarious accidents and also includes the song, 'Talkin Softball'NASA Agent: I Don't understand, that was non-alcoholic champagne

Darryl, Darryl, Darryl[/url]
Homer: You're Darryl Strawberry?
Homer: You play right field?
Homer: I play right field too, so, are you better than me?
Darryl: Well, I've never met you, but…yes.3. Trash of the titans- This is probably my favourite to be honest. Home runs for sanitation commissioner against Ray Patterson. The Candy man rip off song is so good as well.Officer Eddie: (reading Steve Sax's license) Well well, Steve Sax, from New York City.
Officer Lou: I heard some guy got killed in New York City and they never solved the case. But you wouldn't know anything about that now, would you, Steve?
(Lou and Eddie laugh)
Steve Sax: But there are hundreds of unsolved murders in New York City.
Officer Lou: You don't know when to keep your mouth shut, do you, Saxxy Boy?

Bart Simpson: [over loud speaker] Hey everybody, vote for my dad, Homer Simpson. If you don't he'll beat us.
Homer Simpson: [over loud speaker] Why you little... er... No one's gonna beat you, son.
[under his breath, but still audible]
Homer Simpson: You're gonna get such a beating!4. Bart v. Australia - This makes my top 5 probably because the cultural references are just so funny. Always laugh when the Koala is hanging off the helicopter at the end as well.Bono: Hold on folks. The man's talking about waste management, that effects the whole damn planet!
The Edge: Aw, here we go.
The Edge: What do you say we slip out to Moe's for a pint?
Adam Clayton: Can I come?
The Edge: No.
Adam Clayton: Wankers.
Marge: We have those in America. They're called bull frogs.
Store Clerk: That's weird! I'd have called them chuzzwazzers!5. You Only Move Twice - Hank Scorpio is one of my favourite guest-stars and its such a good episode with numerous Bond referencesAustralian with Spoon: You call that a knife?
[the man pulls out a spoon]
Australian with Spoon: *This* is a knife.
Bart: [confused] That's not a knife, that's a spoon.
Australian with Spoon: Alright, alright you win. I see you've played knifey-spoony before.

Scorpio: Good afternoon, gentlemen. This is Scorpio. I have the Doomsday Device. You have 72 hours to deliver the gold or you'll face the consequences. And to prove I'm not bluffing, watch this. [presses a button causing a bridge to blow up in the background of the screen the gentlemen are visible in]
UN Man 1: [all the men look at the explosion] Oh My God, the Fifty-Ninth Street Bridge!
UN Man 2: Maybe it just collapsed on its own.
UN Man 1: We can't take that chance.
UN Man 2: You always say that. I want to take a chance!Probably not the most conclusive list but it's hard to narrow them down to a top five list from memory so this is the best I've come up with. Trash of the Titans is my favourite and probably has the best set of quotes.Bart: So, what you in here for?
Remiedial Child #1: I'm from Canada and everyone thinks I'm slow, eh.
Remiedial Child #2: I fell off the jungle gym and when I woke up I was in here.
Remiedial Child #3: I start fires!
The Party Posse would probably be my 6th favourite but just couldn't break into the top 5.
