“Homer the Clown”, when Homer goes to clown college (season six). It’s the smartest, wittiest, and funniest Simpson episode there is.
Krusty: All right, now there can only be one Krusty in each territory, so I hope this works out. Tell me where you’re from.
Man 1: Georgia.
Texan 1: Texas.
Texan 2: Uh, Brooklyn.
Man 2: Russia.
Man 3: New Hampshire.
Homer: [folding a balloon incompetently] And then, take that…and… put that in there, and you…ah! There’s your giraffe, little girl.
Ralph: I’m a boy!
Homer: That’s the spirit. Never give up.
Homer: Whew, I’m beat. And after work I’ve got to dedicate a new Jiffy Lube and cohost the Ace Awards.
Lenny: Wow! Jiffy Lube!
Luigi: You come-a with me — come-a with Luigi! You don’t want to sit with the rest of these-a scum.
Everyone: Hey! What do you call that? etc.
Luigi: I only-a consider you scum compared-a to Krusty.
Everyone: Ah! Oh, well, right. I can see that, etc.
Luigi: Yeah, you see how you scum.
Bill: Let me get this straight: you took all the money you made franchising your name and bet it AGAINST the Harlem Globetrotters?
Krusty: Oh, I thought the Generals were due! [TV shows a Globetrotter spinning the ball as Generals watch.] He’s spinning the ball on his finger! Just take it, take the ball!!!
Shame that everything went downhill after Conan left.
