I can’t live the buttoned down life like you. I want it all: the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles! Sure, I might offend a few of the blue-noses with my cocky stride and musky odor - oh, I’ll never be the darling of the so-called ‘City Fathers’ who cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about what’s to be done with this Homer Simpson?— Homer
Here's another short-but-cool list: all the times the "one day left 'til retirement" joke (or variants) has been used.
In the video store, Homer watches a McBain movie in which Scoie, his sidekick, is retiring in a two days. However, someone tries to kill McBain, and Scoie takes the bullets and dies.
When Homer tries to "bite back" against Apu for selling him spoiled meat, he wears an oversize novelty hat with a camera hidden inside to get some incriminating footage of the Kwik-E-Mart. But Homer ends up smashing the hat, believing there is a bee inside. Kent Brockman tells him that the hat had one day left 'til retirement.
