* Little Miss Mantra and Buddha's Got Back Pt. 2 occur at the same time.
"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'."
"Actually, I’m trying to find meaning in this world of daily drudgery."
"All you need to do is trust in the wisdom of the Almighty Finger. I mean, God."
"Actually, Springfield exploded and then returned. I’ve been thinking this might be proof of the Buddhist concept of Samsara -"
"Oh Lord. Is this another conversation where you convince me Buddha was just a chubby Jesus?"
"Wow, we suffered a firey nuclear death and now we're reborn! I guess the Buddist theory of reincarnation is right."
"Yeah. And we came back as ourselves. Boy, we must’ve really screwed up last time."
"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."
"I don’t understand it either. We need to go someplace where we can contemplate the mysteries of our existence."
"Now that the Buddist Temple is back, I can continue on my quest toward spirital enlightment."
"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."
"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."
"Thanks, Dad…I guess."
"It's great to have my closest friends back. Now, settle your tab before I stab out your lungs."
"But Moe, all our money burned up in the explosions."
"So did my bar tabs... but I still expect you to pay them!"
"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."
"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."
"Only one? Well, then I say give the job to Carl."
"I say give the job to me as well."
"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."
"Nope. Did that thing where I just take it."
"Guess I have to rely on my fallback teaching job. Good thing I'm an expert on how not to chew tobacco."
"I knew you'd bounce back. Speaking of bouncing and things that have back, I have a date with your sister."
