The Simpsons Movie

Synopsis: Homer adopts a pig who's run away from Krusty Burger after Krusty tried to have him slaughtered, naming the pig "Spider Pig." At the same time, the lake is protected after the audience sink the barge Green Day are on with garbage after they mention the environment. Meanwhile, Spider Pig's waste has filled up a silo in just 2 days, apparently with Homer's help. Homer can't get to the dump quickly so dumps the silo in the lake, polluting it. Russ Cargill, the villainous boss of the EPA, gives Arnold Schwarzenegger 5 options, forcing him to choose 4 (which is, unfortunately, to destroy Springfield) and putting a dome over Springfield to prevent evacuation. Homer, however, has escaped, along with his family. Can he stop the evil Cargill from annihilating his home town, and his family, who have been forced to return to Springfield?

We come in peace

for cats and mice everywhere.

Hey, how you doing? Good to see you.

Thanks for coming out.

Itchy... Itchy...


Dad, we can't see the movie.

I can't believe we're paying to see

something we get on TV for free.

If you ask me, everybody in this theater

is a giant sucker.

Especially you.

Movie on the big screen!

Excuse me. My heinie is dipping.

All right, well,

thanks a lot for coming.

We've been playing

for three and a half hours.

Now we'd like just a minute of your time

to say something about the environment.

- You suck!

- Shut up and play!

- Preachy!

- We're not being preachy.

But the pollution in your lake,

it's dissolving our barge.

I thought they touched on

a vital issue.

I beg to differ.

Gentlemen, it's been an honor

playing with you tonight.

For the latest rock band

to die in our town...

...Lord, hear our prayer.

Lord, hear our prayer.

I hate being late.

Well, I hate going.

Why can't I worship the Lord

in my own way... praying like hell on my deathbed?

Homer, they can hear you inside.

Relax. Those pious morons are too busy

talking to their phony-baloney God.

How you doing? Peace be with you.

Praise Jebus.

Today I'd like to try something

a little different.

I'm going to call on one of you!

Now, the word of God

dwells within everyone.

I want you to let that word out.

Let your spirit...

What is it, Ned?

The good Lord is telling me

to confess to something.

Gay, gay, gay.

An immodest sense of pride

in our community.

Somebody else?

Let the Lord's light shine upon you.

Feel the spirit.

Let it out!

Horrible, horrible things

are going to happen!

And they're gonna happen to you!

And you! And you! And you.

Whoa, nelly!

People of Springfield,

heed this warning:

Twisted tail!

A thousand eyes!

Trapped forever!

Dad, do something!

This book doesn't have any answers!

Beware! Beware! Time is short!

Believe me! Believe me!

Thanks for listening.

Okay, who wants waffles?

I do, I do, I do!

Wait a minute. What about Grampa?

- I want syrup!

- I want strawberries!

Something happened to that man.

I'll tell you what happened to him.

A certain someone had a senior moment.

But that's okay, because we love him

and we got a free rug out of it.

What is the point of going to church

every Sunday...

...when if someone we love has a genuine

religious experience, we ignore it?

Right, Grampa?

I want bananas on my waffles.

I rest my case.

I'm not dropping this.

Wait a minute. I'm still in the car.

Oh, right.

"Take out hornets' nest."

Check."Fix sinkhole."


"Re-shingle roof"?



Why, you little...!

I'll teach you to laugh

at something that's funny!

You know, we are on the roof.

We could have some fun.

What kind of fun?

How about a dare contest?

That sounds fun. I dare you to...

...climb the TV antenna!

- Piece of cake.

- Earthquake!


Homer, I don't mean

to be a Nervous Pervis...

...but if he falls, couldn't that

make your boy a paraplege-arino?

Shut up, Flanders.

- Yeah, shut up, Flanders.

- Well said, boy.

Steady. Steady.


Hello. Sorry to bother you

on a Sunday...

...but I'm sure you're as worried about

the pollution in Lake Springfield as I am.

Lake Springfield has higher levels

of mercury than ev...

Why, it's the little girl

who saved my cat.

Lake Springfield is...

Come on over, Lisa.

You can canvass me

as long as you want.

Milhouse, you don't care

about the environment.

Hey. I am very passionate

about the planet.

Say global warming is a myth.

It's a myth! Further study is needed!
