Mother Simpson [3F06]
Burns: Yes, I'd like to send this letter to the Prussian

Kid: Uh, I better look in the manual.

Homer: Tie good. You like shirt?

Homer: Marge, this is Thai food. From now on,
I want it morning, noon, and night.
Marge: When did you start liking Thai food?
Homer: When Trent Steele bought me some.
Marge: Who's Trent Steele?
Homer: He's Max Power's oldest and dearest friend.

Mmmm, smells like mint!

The Mansion Family [BABF08]
Homer: (on the phone) Operator, get me Thailand. T-I-
and so on.
Marge: Homer, who are you calling?
Homer: Everybody! I found Burnsie's address book. I
called the New York Yankees and told them to bunt and then I called the
Queen of England and asked her how it was going and then I--
Marge: Well, don't run up Mr. Burn's phone bill.
Homer: Just a second, Marge. (on the phone) Hello?
Thailand? How's everything on your end? Uh huh. That's some language you've
got there. (chuckling) And you talk like that 24/7, huh?
[At the end of the blog
is a link to a sound clip of Homer Simpson trying to call Thailand.]
|A Thai character on The Simpsons!
Season 12 has two episodes with
Thai references---there's even a new Thai character. Too
bad he seems more Japanese than Thai (he teaches Bart ninja
moves) and speaks with a generic "oriental" accent.
Lisa the Tree Hugger [CABF01]
Bart goes to at a Thai restaurant called "You Thai
Now" to ask for a job.
Thai restaurant guy: You need job? I
have job for you. (he hands Bart a stack of menus with cutouts
to hang on doorknobs) You take these. You hang Thai menu
on door. I get more business. Send daughters to small, liberal
arts college. Swathmore. Maybe, Sarah Lawrence. Call professors
by first name. Ah, dynamite!
Bart: Hang 'em on the door. Got it!
Bart tries to hang the menus, but people chase him away
from their doors, so Bart throws the menus in a dumpster.
The Thai restaurant owner runs up.
Thai restaurant guy:You quitter. Quitter
boy! Quitter boy!
Bart: I'm sorry.
Thai restaurant guy:Now restaurant fail.
Children go to state college. Serious students powerless
against drunken jock-ocracy. Baseball hats everywhere.
Bart: Hey, man. This job is too dangerous.
Thai restaurant owner: Menu boy no be
coward like shrimp. Menu boy be brave like prawn.
Inside the restaurant, a short stick with pegs on it stands
in the middle of the room.
Thai restaurant guy:Menu boy must move
silently like ghost. Leave no footprint, only lunch special.
Bart runs to the stick and deftly leaves menus on all the
pegs. Following scenes show the town littered with Thai
menus. Lisa even finds a fish in the gutter stuck in a menu
a la plastic soda can rings.
Selling the redwood
The Thai restaurant guy turns up again at a secret auction
to sell Springfield's largest redwood tree. Bids are being
Man: 30,000 dollars. To make cages for
Thai restaurant guy: 50,000. For Thai
menus. (he sits down and explains to man sitting beside
him) Daughter on wait list at Bennington.
And later, in an unprecedented THIRD Thai reference, Lisa
is sitting up in the giant redwood tree when she gets a
thermos of "Thai soup" sent by Bart.
Homer vs. Dignity [CABF04]
Special thanks to Jan for pointing out the
Thai reference that appears in the June 30, 2001 showing of Homer vs.
Dignity. Smithers tells Mr. Burns he has written a play about the
Malibu Stacey dolls and Burns replies, "A play about a doll? Why
don't you write a play about cats or the King of Siam? Give it up, Smithers."
