Redditor fhamadeh shared his favorite moment with this dialogue between Homer and Lisa that painted the perfect picture verbatim. 

Homer: What's wrong, honey?

Lisa: There's something troubling me, dad, but I don't think I can tell you because it's a secret.

Homer: Ah, you don't have to tell me, but I thought we trusted each other with our secrets now. I mean, I haven't told a soul about your boyfriend.

Lisa: Langdon Alger? Oh, I don't like him anymore. Okay, but you have to promise you won't get angry or tell anyone, especially Bart.

Homer: I promise.

Lisa: (sputtering) Bart rented a car with a phony driver's license and drove Milhouse, Martin, and Nelson to a wig outlet in Knoxville, and their car got crushed! And they're out of money, and they can't get home, and Bart's working as a courier and just came back from Hong Kong!

Homer: (face reddens, then returns to normal; calmly) Yes, that's a real pickle. Could you excuse me for a moment? [puts on the radiation suit hood, which muffles his voice; he yells his head off as the faceplate fogs up] All right, I have thought this through. I will send Bart the money to fly home. Then I will murder him.

1. “Blood Feud” Season 2 Episode 22

Redditor residentdunce quoted Homer, “Hello, my name's Mr. Burns. I believe you have a package for me. P.O. Guy: Okay, Mr. Burns, what's your first name? Homer: I don't know.”

“Blood Feud” is the episode where Mr. Burns needs rare blood, and Bart is a match. So he donates blood thinking it will be a huge payout. 

However, Mr. Burns doesn't pay. So Homer and Bart draft a letter, and Bart drops it in the mail. This quote is Homer at the Post Office attempting to intercept it.
