Buffy: Over. *sniff*

From the seriously funny Otter Nonsense.

"All great epics come to an end. The Iliad. The Odyssey. War and Peace. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Just kidding. The Tolstoy book is a ringer. Doesn't belong on this list. Too literal."
- Noel Holston, 'Pulling Up Stakes', Newsday.com, May 18, 2003.

Wisdom equals popular culture: from the mouth of Homer (Simpson).

Reporter: Don't you think it's dangerous to send civilians into space?
Homer: I'll handle this... the only danger in space is if we land on the terrible Planet of the Apes... wait a minute. Statue of Liberty... THAT WAS OUR PLANET! YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT UP! DAMN YOU! DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL! (Starts sobbing uncontrollably)

Lisa: Dad, what's a Muppet?
Homer: Well, it's not quite a mop, it's not quite a puppet, but man... [laughs hysterically] So to answer your question, I don't know.

Homer: So I says, blue M&M, red M&M, they all wind up the same color in the end.

Homer: I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to SPEED around a city, keeping its SPEED over fifty, and if its SPEED dropped, it would explode. I think it was called, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."

[Praying heavenward]
Homer: I'm not normally a religious man, but if you're up there, save me, Superman!
