A Sign of the Grimes Pt. 1Edit

Character Dialogue
Frank Grimes Icon "Here I am, back in Springfield. It's like I never left."
Homer Happy Icon "Grimey! You're back!"
Homer Sad Icon "But I thought you were dead."
Frank Grimes Icon "It's Frank. And apparently, I was just in a coma which, of course, led to being buried alive."
Homer Icon "Sounds great. So now let's talk about me..."
Frank Grimes Icon "Ah, Homer. The old me would have been at your throat for such insensitivity."
Frank Grimes Icon "But I've done a lot of reflecting in my coffin, and nothing you say can bother me anymore."
Homer Icon "So I got this zit on my back, and even after I pop it it doesn't go away."
Frank Grimes Icon "On second thought, I think I'll pop in for a quick meditation."

Homer Thoughtful Icon "Oh, that happened?"
Lenny Icon "Just be careful not to annoy him. He might kill himself even worse this time."

Frank Grimes Icon "After that time you made me kill myself. I realized I can't change you – I can only change myself."
Homer Icon "Wow, that's deep. Just like your grave."
Homer Icon "Put ‘er there, friend."

Frank Grimes Icon "Okay! And it's Frank."
