crummy little town off my feet,

and I'm gonna see the world!

Italy, Greece, the Parthenon,

the Colosseum...

[Kerri] How's she gonna take

care of herself?

[Claire] I don't know.


Do you have any savings?




Okay, um, so she's 20.

She's never had a boyfriend.

She's never left home.

She's never had a job.

You guys just pretend

you're on a cloud...

[Claire] Okay, you're supposed to be

helping me here. ...watching movies?

[man on television]

Why don't you kiss her

How's that?

[man on television] Why don't you kiss

her instead of talking her to death?!

Want me to kiss her, huh?

[man on television] Oh, youth

is wasted on the wrong people!


Does she have any skills?

[Claire] Yes.

[Kerri] All she talks about is

her dreams and her fantasies.

You've created kind of

a f***ed-up situation.

Lawn mowing.

She mowed the lawn.


I think I remember that.

I think she was afraid

of the lawnmower.

I'm sorry, honey,

it's not funny.

It's not funny.

[Claire crying] I don't know

what she's gonna do.

Alright, who would

hire a 20-year-old

that still acts like

a 13-year-old?

[Claire] I wouldn't.

Claire, you pretty much...

you f***ed it.


You're gonna help her, right?


We'll get her into college.

What she needs

is a f***ing life.

[man on television] The chance

of a lifetime, you hear?

The chance of a lifetime!

[woman on television] He says

it's the chance of a lifetime,

[man on television]

Now you listen to me,

I don't want any plastics,

and I don't want

any ground floors,

and I don't want to get

married ever to anyone!

You understand that?

I want to do what I want to do.

And you're...

"Do you love movies?

We sure do.

Nancy Cartwright

Nancy Jean Cartwright (born October 25, 1957) is an American actress, voice actress and comedian, known for her long-running role as Bart Simpson on the animated television series The Simpsons. Cartwright also voices other characters for the show, including Nelson Muntz, Ralph Wiggum, Todd Flanders, Kearney and Database. Cartwright was born in Dayton, Ohio. Cartwright moved to Hollywood in 1978 and trained alongside voice actor Daws Butler. Her first professional role was voicing Gloria in the animated series Richie Rich, which she followed with a starring role in the television movie Marian Rose White (1982) and her first feature film, Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983). After continuing to search for acting work, in 1987, Cartwright auditioned for a role in a series of animated shorts about a dysfunctional family that was to appear on The Tracey Ullman Show. Cartwright intended to audition for the role of Lisa Simpson, the middle child; when she arrived at the audition, she found the role of Bart—Lisa's brother—to be more interesting. Matt Groening, the series' creator, allowed her to audition for Bart and offered her the role on the spot. She voiced Bart for three seasons on The Tracey Ullman Show, and in 1989, the shorts were spun off into a half-hour show called The Simpsons. For her subsequent work as Bart, Cartwright received a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in 1992 and an Annie Award for Best Voice Acting in the Field of Animation in 1995. Besides The Simpsons, Cartwright has also voiced numerous other animated characters, including Daffney Gillfin in The Snorks, Rufus in Kim Possible, Mindy in Animaniacs, Pistol in Goof Troop, Margo Sherman in The Critic, Todd Daring in The Replacements, and Charles "Chuckie" Finster, Jr. in Rugrats and All Grown Up! (a role she assumed in 2002, following the retirement of Christine Cavanaugh). In 2000, she published her autobiography, My Life as a 10-Year-Old Boy, and four years later, adapted it into a one-woman play. In 2017, she wrote and produced the film In Search of Fellini. more…
