The Greatest Single-Line Jokes in ‘The Simpsons,’ According to Reddit

Much like the number of Simpsons seasons, there is a near-infinite amount of right answers to the question, “What’s the best one-liner in Simpsons history?”

Over the weekend, the Simpsons subreddit submitted hundreds of suggestions to answer the immortal question of which single-line joke is the funniest as entries spanned all the way from Season 1 to Season 10. For a show so famously capable of dishing out bangers with minimal build-up, it’s predictably hard to pick just a single one-liner to crown as king – which is why we’ve assembled a list to indulge our craving for economical comedy.

The list of favorite lines runs the gamut of speakers, with everyone from the interior Simpsons clan to small side characters immortalized by a single joke getting love from Reddit’s Simpsons superfans – though, predictably, there’s a whole lot of Homer in the top spots. Here are Reddit’s picks:

“I was saying Boourns” – Hans Moleman

“There’s a lemon behind that rock!” – Bart Simpson
