Watching a Simpson's rerun today, I heard one of the best quotes. To set the context: Bart has sold his soul to Millhouse and is encountering all kinds of problems as a result, such as animals hating him and automatic doors not recognizing his presence. While at the Kwik-E-Mart, Bart sees some of the neighborhood ruffian-bullies steaming up the glass on the cooler with their breath and then writing insulting phrases. He wants to join in, but lacking a soul, he isn't able to steam up the glass. Noting his failure, one of the bullies, Jimbo, comments,

"Nice breathing, No-breath."
