30 Hilarious 'Simpsons' Quotes That'll Help You Celebrate Their 30th Anniversary

No. 29 is too real ... and No. 1 ... and 17 ... and ...

April 19, 2017, marks the 30th anniversary of the The Simpsons. Mind you, we're not talking about the long-running TV series, which officially debuted in December 1989, but the characters themselves, who first appeared in a short on The Tracey Ullman Show on April 19, 1987.

Since that time, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie — along with the entire town of Springfield — have held a special place in our culture. Through the shorts, the series' more than 600 episodes, and one feature film, among other media, America's favorite yellow family and their friends have paid homage to pop culture, poked fun at politics, inspired innovation, and delivered laughs at every imaginable level of humor.

And, for true Simpsons nerds, the show has given us a near-endless supply of quotes, one-liners, and exchanges that can lead to hours-long riff-offs to see who can deliver their favorites with the most accuracy and in their best impression.

For a few laughs and to stroll down memory lane, we've rounded up some of our favorite quotes from the characters. Our list will only scratch the surface of the thousands available, but they're sure to put a smile on your face — which is what the famous family really wants to celebrate their big day.
