The cultural impact of The Simpsons gargantuan. Since its debut on Fox Television on December 17, 1989, the show has gone on to garner tremendous critical acclaim and a lot of eyeballs. Other than being a darn good show, it has created some of the best characters to have ever appeared on screen. And even though they are just cartoons, many of them exude a sense of realism and humanity that dwarfs so many of the other characters on television. And over the years, these characters have uttered some of the best lines ever to appear in the English language. See below for our favourite Simpsons lines.
