There are quotes from the Simpsons we all love (see that thread), but there are some actions and other phrases that repeat throughout the series (that's what a motif [moe-teef] is, BTW). Which ones are your faves?
Mine would probably be the fact that so many things burst into flames so easily, especially things that are not actually flamable.
- The step, step, step-step-step; door slam; car screeching sound when someone's leaving an uncomfortable situation.
- Microphone feedback almost every time someone speaks into one.
- The crow at the power plant.
There must be more!
