Mine is probably “Dog of Death” the one where Homer tries to win the lottery and the family struggles to fund a much-needed operation for Santa’s Little Helper:
” If you were seventeen, we’d be rich! But nooooooooooo… You had to be ten.”
“I want to tell you about the most wonderful place in the world: Doggie heaven. In doggie heaven, there are mountains of bones, and you can’t turn around without sniffing another dog’s butt!”
“Is there a doggie hell?”
“Well… Of course, there couldn’t be a heaven if there weren’t a hell.”
“Who’s in there?”
“Oh, uh… Hitler’s dog… and that dog Nixon had, what’s his name um, Chester…”
“Yeah! One of the Lassies is in there, too. The mean one! The one that mauled Jimmy!”
“And pork chop night… will now be chub night.”
“Marge, I’ve figured out an alternative to giving up my beer. Basically, we become a family of travelling acrobats!”
“That was his dish… And that was his leash… And that’s where he took a wizz on the rug…”
