An Experiment Where Guinea Pigs are Guinea Pigs Pt. 1[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Quimby Icon.png "Residents of Springfield, do not panic, but we are experiencing an invasion by an alien species."
"Every neighborhood, every street is being overwhelmed by--"
Lisa Icon.png "GUINEA PIGS!!!"
"Dad, I've always wanted one, and here are dozens wandering the streets, desperate to be rescued, and I'm the FIRST LITTLE GIRL on the scene!!"
Homer Icon.png "Hmmm, don't you think we should just call animal control? Or lots of speeding cars?"
Lisa Icon.png "No, Dad! Let me take them. I'd be the perfect guinea pig owner. I even know their common health problems, which include wheezing..."
"...crusty eyes, receding eyes, drooling, watery diarrhea, anorexia, bladder stones, limping, and mange mites."
Homer Icon.png "That sound like a lot of fun, honey. But how about anything in the world else?"
Lisa Icon.png "We have to rescue them. Guinea pigs are mistreated everywhere. Did you know that in Peru people eat them?"
Homer Icon.png "Wait, they what?"
Lisa Icon.png "Nothing, Dad! They nothing."
Homer Icon.png "I just have one question: how long are they cooked and at what temperature and are they brined and what sauces bring out their delicate flavor?"
Lisa Icon.png "They're getting away! Help me rescue them!"
Tap on the guinea pigs to rescue them!

Character Dialogue
Lisa Icon.png "Where did these poor guinea pigs come from?"
Wiggum Icon.png "It's common for people to dump unwanted pets in Springfield."
"That's why there's a flock of parrots in the tree, a bunch of ferrets living under Moe's and hundreds of monkeys in Professor Frink's lab."
"It's strange that so many people didn't want their monkeys."
Lisa Icon.png "That's horrible! But I'll never give a single one of these cute guinea pigs away -- ow! They, what white one just bit me!"

Character Dialogue
Homer Icon.png "Uh-oh, I see blue hair coming this way."
Marge Icon.png "Homer! There's are 40 guinea pigs in Lisa' room!"
Homer Icon.png "I know, honey. I'll find a tactic to make her get rid of them right away."
Marge Icon.png "Good."
Homer Icon.png "Uh, what tactic do you suggest I use?"
Marge Icon.png "Parenting!"
Homer Icon.png "Okay I'll try, but I haven't had much luck with it before."
"Lisa! You can't keep these guinea pigs here. You have to find a home for them right now or you don't get to go to Janie's birthday party."
Lisa Icon.png "Okay."
Homer Icon.png "Good lord, this "parenting" thing is some powerful mojo."

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Lisa Icon.png "Dad, I found a guinea pig rescue center on Craigslist!"
Homer Icon.png "Ah, Craigslist -- the site that killed off classified ads, the yellow pages, and escorts having nowhere to advertise."
Lisa Icon.png "The land the rescue center was on was taken over by survivalists, so the center's looking for new land. Apparently it's easy to move -- it's a "manufactured home."
Homer Icon.png "In my day, those were called "mobile homers" and the residents were proud to be called trailer trash."
"But there's no name for these "manufactured home" people! Why must we ruin everything"
Lisa Icon.png "Dad, I'm a little tired of hearing your "take" on things. Can't we just find some land?"
Homer Icon.png "Land! The only thing in the world that God's not making any more of...except during the Squidport update."

An Experiment Where Guinea Pigs are Guinea Pigs Pt. 3[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Lisa Icon.png "I'm so glad we finally found a home for all those adorable guinea pigs."
"Can we go there right now and make sure that the workers are calling them by the names I gave them? It's easy to confuse Iphigenia for Clytemnestra."
Homer Icon.png "Sure, we can go. My shoes can always use a few minutes of standing in shallow pails of bleach."
The Guinea Pig Rescue Center is in your Inventory! (Woo-hoo free building!!)

Character Dialogue
Lisa Icon.png "The guinea pigs look so happy! And only a couple of them have bumblefoot or slobbers."
Homer Icon.png "Bumblefoot or the slobbers?" What are those?"
Lisa Icon.png "Guinea pigs diseases. But not to worry, I don’t think humans can get them…Dad, you tripped! Are you okay?"
Homer Icon.png "Yea, that’s weird — my foot suddenly doesn't fit in my shoe. And I’m drooling like crazy."
Lisa Icon.png "Oh, Dad, Pokey the guinea pig is looking at you! Can I please adopt him?"
Homer Icon.png *slobbering no*
Lisa Icon.png "Please, please, please, please….?"
Homer Icon.png *unintelligible slobbers*
Will Lisa get a guinea pig? Always wondered when Max von Sydow would do a voice on a cartoon? Then tune in to this Sunday's episode of The Simpsons 8/7c on FOX.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lisa names her guinea pigs Iphigenia and Clytemnestra
    • Iphigenia is a daughter of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra in Greek mythology, whom Agamemnon is commanded to kill as a sacrifice to allow his ships to sail to Troy.
    • Clytemnestra, in Greek legend, a daughter of Leda and Tyndareus and wife of Agamemnon, commander of the Greek forces in the Trojan War. She took Aegisthus as her lover while Agamemnon was away at war. Upon his return, Clytemnestra and Aegisthus murdered Agamemnon. Clytemnestra was then killed by her son, Orestes, with the help of his sister Electra, in revenge for his father's murder.
