Dialogue Edit

Keepin' the Faith Pt. 1 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
The Patriarch Icon Tim, your parishioner numbers are down again, and your flock just isn’t as fulsome as we’re looking for.
Rev. Lovejoy Sad Icon There’s a lot of competition these days, Patriarch, what with all the new streaming services.
Rev. Lovejoy Sad Icon I haven’t even started the new season of "Marvelous Mrs. Manson". It’s not easy to motivate the masses.
The Patriarch Happy Icon Not so, Tim. You just need to bring your A Game – watch and learn!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
The Patriarch Happy Icon And that’s how it’s done! *mic drop*
Rev. Lovejoy Annoyed Icon Careful! I’m still making payments on that thing!
The Patriarch Icon You just have to fire ‘em up with the word of God. And toss a couple of lit firecrackers to wake em up.
Rev. Lovejoy Icon It’s easy to come in and do a rousing guest spot, but I’m a recurring character in these people’s lives.
The Patriarch Annoyed Icon You know, Tim, maybe it’s time I found a Springfielder who can really inspire the supplicants of this suburb.
Rev. Lovejoy Annoyed Icon Ha! Good luck with that! There’s no one in this town as committed to the word of the Lord, who also fits my vestments.

Keepin' the Faith Pt. 2 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
The Patriarch Happy Icon Marge Simpson, I hear you’re a pious woman who likes to plant it in the pew every Sunday. Would you be interested in answering a higher calling?
Marge Happy Icon Selling medicinal marijuana? I’m doing that late in season 31.
The Patriarch Icon No, I mean taking over as Pastor.
Marge Thoughtful Icon Hm. Let me consider that while I bake some cookies.
The Patriarch Happy Icon Let me give you a hand with that while we chat…

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Marge Nervous Icon Those are some…interesting cookies, Patriarch.
Bart Happy Icon This Saint Bartholomew cookie is awesome! Is the pink frosting supposed to be his flayed skin?
The Patriarch Happy Icon Heh heh! Yes it is, young man! Good eye! So Marge, have you considered my offer?
Marge Icon Are there any perks to joining the ministry?
The Patriarch Icon You get to hear a lot of juicy deathbed confessions. Did you know Bleeding Gums Murphy killed a hobo in a hit and run?
Marge Scared Icon Yikes. Um… I think I’ll pass.

Keepin' the Faith Pt. 3 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
The Patriarch Icon I see that you are popular with the youth of Springfield. We could use that in the Church. Have you ever considered becoming a minister?
Comic Book Guy Icon Hmm…I have always felt that I was destined for a larger emporium. My counter has been feeling a little tight lately. Literally.
The Patriarch Happy Icon There’s lots of room behind a podium. And in a nice purple robe.
Comic Book Guy Happy Icon I do like the idea of not wearing pants to work.
The Patriarch Icon You already deal in books about magical powers. Just come do it for our team.
Comic Book Guy Annoyed Icon Hmm. Tell me about your main characters, their special powers, and their one weakness.

End Edit

Character Dialogue
The Patriarch Happy Icon Well, what do you think of all that, young man?
Comic Book Guy Annoyed Icon Fairly ridiculous. What kind of a father doesn’t avenge his own son’s death. John Wick, he is not.
Comic Book Guy Annoyed Icon And while your “Satan” has some potential as a villain, he lacks the nuance and pathos of a Dr. Crab.
The Patriarch Icon Well, if you ever change your mind, come by the church.
Comic Book Guy Angry Icon I will continue to worship at the altar of Fat Thor, thank you very much.

Keepin' the Faith Pt. 4 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Herman Icon Hey Padre, I hear you’ve been nosin’ around town quite a bit lately. Something is up, isn’t it? Biblical plague coming? Frogs? Locusts?
The Patriarch Icon No, nothing like that. I’m seeking a newly energized evangelical to help elevate Springfield’s righteousness in these troubled times.
Herman Icon Say no more -- I’m your man! I’ve been preparing for this day for a long time.
The Patriarch Icon Um, really? Why, that’s good news for the Good News! Let’s head over to the church.
Herman Scary Icon Sure thing, boss. But first, I need your help with a couple things…

End Edit

Character Dialogue
The Patriarch Annoyed Icon You know, Herman, I feel like maybe we’re not on the same page here.
Herman Icon Sure we are. We’re both itching for the end of the world. Except you’re expecting a savior, and I’m expecting a fortune. People are gonna need guns and canned beans aplenty. And toilet paper.
The Patriarch Annoyed Icon *leaves*
Herman Angry Icon Where you goin’? I have a whole room full of MRB’s!
The Patriarch Surprised Icon MRB’s?
Herman Icon Meals Ready to Bless.

Keepin' the Faith Pt. 5 Edit

Start Edit

Character Dialogue
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon Hello, my good man! I hear you’re in the market for a motivated maven to move this town’s citizenry into a more moral state.
The Patriarch Icon Hmmm. No offense, Mr. Sideshow, but I’m not sure you’re the type of Pastor we’re looking for.
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon Ah, but who better than one who has fallen low and risen again.
The Patriarch Icon Hm. Perhaps you’re right. Who better to lead a congregation than a prodigal son.
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon Like the mighty rake that whacks me, no one has fallen and risen more than I!

End Edit

Character Dialogue
Sideshow Bob Icon So, your Patriarch-ness, how soon would I be able to reach out to troubled families to offer one-on-one counseling.
The Patriarch Sad Icon Well…
Sideshow Bob Ominous Icon One family in particular, the Simpson family, could benefit from a visit. I hear they have a wayward son that needs to be… DEALT with.
The Patriarch Surprised Icon Why are you sharpening those enormous knives? Where did they even come from?
Sideshow Bob Happy Icon An ankle holster. My brother got it for me for the holidays and I can’t live without it.
The Patriarch Annoyed Icon The HOLIDAYS? No pastor of mine is going to refer to Christmas as the holidays. Don’t you know there’s a war going on, according to one dubious cable news channel? Get lost, pal.
Rev. Lovejoy Icon How goes the quest to find my replacement, sir?
The Patriarch Annoyed Icon Looks like you’re still in business…for now.
Rev. Lovejoy Icon I told you I’m not easily replaceable. This town has got more nuts than a squirrel’s digestive tract.
The Patriarch Icon I agree, Reverend. I agree.
