Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Buddha's Got Back Part 1[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png "Ah, Lisa Simpson! You wanted to speak to my about a spiritual crisis. Perhaps you've come to hear a humble 'I told you so'."
Lisa Icon.png "Actually, I’m trying to find meaning in this world of daily drudgery."
Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png "All you need to do is trust in the wisdom of the Almighty Finger. I mean, God."
Lisa Icon.png "Actually, Springfield exploded and then returned. I’ve been thinking this might be proof of the Buddhist concept of Samsara -"
Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png "Oh Lord. Is this another conversation where you convince me Buddha was just a chubby Jesus?"

Buddha's Got Back Part 2[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Lenny Icon.png "Wow, we suffered a firey nuclear death and now we're reborn! I guess the Buddist theory of reincarnation is right."
Carl Icon.png "Yeah. And we came back as ourselves. Boy, we must’ve really screwed up last time."
Lenny Icon.png "But we did everything right. Gave to the poor. Helped old ladies cross the street. Made sure our magazines were, at the minimum, barely legal. I was hoping to be reincarnated as you."
Carl Icon.png "I don’t understand it either. We need to go someplace where we can contemplate the mysteries of our existence."

Little Miss Mantra[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Lisa Icon.png "Now that the Buddist Temple is back, I can continue on my quest toward spirital enlightment."
Marge Icon.png "Oh, honey, can’t you just go to normal church with the rest of us? I don’t want us all to end up in different heavens."
Homer Icon.png "Eh, let her go, Marge. The boy’s not going to be there anyway – it’ll be nice for you and me to have some alone time."
Lisa Icon.png "Thanks, Dad…I guess."

Buddha's Got Back Part 3[edit | edit source]

Start[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Moe Icon.png "It's great to have my closest friends back. Now, settle your tab before I stab out your lungs."
Lenny Icon.png "But Moe, all our money burned up in the explosions."
Moe Icon.png "So did my bar tabs... but I still expect you to pay them!"
Homer Icon.png "If you need money, you guys should get your old jobs back at the plant. Then you can cover for me when I'm never there."

End[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Smithers Icon.png "Thank you both for reporting to work."
"Unfortunately, with so few people in this town, and my recent raise, we only have enough money to pay one of you."
Lenny Icon.png "Only one? Well, then I say give the job to Carl."
Carl Icon.png "I say give the job to me as well."
Lenny Icon.png "Hey! I thought you were going to do that thing where you say no, give him the job, and then we argue over something good."
Carl Icon.png "Nope. Did that thing where I just take it."

Buddha's Got Back Part 4[edit | edit source]

Character Dialogue
Lenny Icon.png "Guess I have to rely on my fallback teaching job. Good thing I'm an expert on how not to chew tobacco."
Carl Icon.png "I knew you'd bounce back. Speaking of bouncing and things that have back, I have a date with your sister."
