Dialogue[]

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 1[]

Character Dialogue
Ned Shocked Icon.png Chief, help! I was having a Christian book burning, and the works of E.L. James got out of control! People just keep adding more and more of them!
Wiggum Icon.png Our next available appointment is Friday. Would you prefer 8 to 12 or 1 to 5?
Ned Surprised Icon.png Friday?! But the fire could spread to my house -- I need it out now!
Wiggum Icon.png Sorry, but we're backed up with fires. It hasn't rained once since this town was rebuilt, and everything's dried out.
Ned Worried Icon.png Then what do I do?
Wiggum Icon.png What anyone around here does when they need somewhere to go.

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 2[]

Start[]

Character Dialogue
Ned Sad Icon.png Homer, this is ridiculous. We need a fire department.
Homer Annoyed Icon.png And who would I staff it with?
Ned Icon.png New characters?
Homer Sarcastic Icon.png Ha! They've already introduced everyone. Even characters who only appeared in deleted scenes.
Apu Icon.png Why don't we volunteer as firefighters?
Homer Confused Icon.png And why would we want to do work for no money?
Apu Happy Icon.png Because if there's a terrorist attack that kills some of us, the ones who survive will get to comfort the widows.
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png I'm in!
Kirk Happy Icon.png Me too!
Moe Icon.png Me three!
Skinner Happy Icon.png Me four!
Wiggum Icon.png Can I do this and still get paid as a cop?

End[]

Character Dialogue
Fireman Homer Icon.png Looks like we have our new Firemen!
Fire Chief Moe Icon.png Alright, time to get us some hot widows!
Fireman Skinner Happy Icon.png I'm just excited to get a few minutes away from mother.
Fireman Apu Happy Icon.png And a few minutes away from Manjula, the store and all eight of my children. Why eight?!
Get Apu and Homer new Fireman Skins! Unless you want them in Third Degree Burn Skins later on.

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 3[]

Start[]

Character Dialogue
Fireman Apu Surprised Icon.png The Kwik-E-Mart is on fire!
Fire Chief Moe Surprised Icon.png Sorry, I was trying to dry my socks in the hot dog roller.
Fireman Apu Sad Icon.png I tried dousing it with Squishee, but it only fed the flames! The stuff's ninety percent propane.
Fireman Homer Icon.png Ooh, our first fire! I'm gonna take a selfie of me fighting it for Springface!

End[]

Character Dialogue
Fireman Apu Icon.png The fire's out! My soul-crushing place of employment has been saved!

Character Dialogue
Quimby Icon.png Well done, men. In honor of you saving one of Springfield's oldest structures, I hereby present you with this medal.
Fireman Homer Annoyed Icon.png This medal says “Pinewood Derby 2003.”
Quimby Smug Icon.png Wahhh. Some “heroes” you are.

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 5[]

Start[]

Character Dialogue
Krusty Surprised Icon.png Help! Krustyland is on fire!
Fire Chief Moe Icon.png I wonder who started that one. Hehe.
Fireman Homer Annoyed Icon.png We don't save places that take your money but offer only subpar services from people in stupid looking uniforms.
Wiggum Surprised Icon.png Help! The police station's on fire!
Fireman Homer Surprised Icon.png Omigod, let's go!

End[]

Character Dialogue
Fireman Apu Annoyed Icon.png Chief, the fire was caused by the microwave in the break room exploding.
Wiggum Icon.png Yeah, so?
Fireman Apu Annoyed Icon.png A microwave wouldn't explode unless it was used at least 100,000 times.
Wiggum Icon.png Yeah, so?
Fireman Apu Surprised Icon.png But there's only five of you who work there.
Wiggum Serious Icon.png Yeah, so?
Fireman Apu Annoyed Icon.png And you've only been working there for four years.
Wiggum Serious Icon.png Yeah, so?
Fireman Apu Annoyed Icon.png So that means each of you are taking 10,000 breaks a day in the break room.
Wiggum Exhausted Icon.png Yeah, so?

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 6[]

Character Dialogue
Lisa Curious Icon.png I don’t get it. There are no hydrants in this town. What are you fighting fires with?
Fireman Homer Icon.png With fire. That's a thing, right?
Bart Rollingeyes Icon.png Come on, Lisa. No four-year-old freemium game is gonna hire animators just to design hydrants.
Bart Rollingeyes Icon.png They haven't even hired someone to figure out how to make us walk in more than two directions.
Lisa Deadpan Icon.png I know. Last night it took me fifteen minutes to get from the living room to the kitchen.

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 7[]

Start[]

Character Dialogue
Wiggum Serious Icon.png We've determined that the fire at the elementary school was set intentionally. So fess up, who started it?
Fireman Skinner Annoyed Icon.png I did. It was the only way to get the asbestos out of school.
Bart Sneaky Icon.png I did. I had a book report due tomorrow.
Miss Hoover Icon.png I did. I had book reports to grade tomorrow.
Willie Angry Icon.png I did. I wanted to die a Viking's death.

End[]

Character Dialogue
Fireman Skinner Icon.png There you go again, awarding everyone medals just for participation.
Miss Hoover Sad Icon.png It's bad enough they make us do it in school. But sadly, I guess now it's everywhere.
Fireman Skinner Icon.png Thank you, EA, for contributing to the wussification of our culture.

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 8[]

Character Dialogue
Fireman Homer Icon.png We know that a lot of you are playing games while smoking, um, you know...
Otto Icon.png Only way to play it!
Fire Chief Moe Icon.png Well, we just want you to be careful when you put down the, you know, in order to tap.
Dr. Nick Icon.png Put it DOWN? I just tap with it!
Fireman Skinner Icon.png Okay. But for the rest of you, be sure to find a safe place to put down the... you know.
Fireman Skinner Icon.png Because one of the leading causes of house fires is, um, you know.
Otto Icon.png And if you haven’t played Tap Ball while ‘relaxed’, you haven’t lived!

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 9[]

Character Dialogue
Selma Icon.png I bet you firefighters are all really good at cooking chili.
Fire Chief Moe Icon.png Nah, that's just a stereotype you always see on TV.
Selma Icon.png How about that story that firefighters can always get free groceries?
Fire Chief Moe Icon.png Nope. Stereotype.
Fireman Homer Sad Icon.png Really? Oops. For the past week I've just been taking my groceries without paying for them.
Selma Icon.png So I guess I shouldn't bother asking about rescuing cats from trees.
Fire Chief Moe Happy Icon.png Ha! Please. Never happens in real life. Only in fictional portrayals!

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 10[]

Character Dialogue
Fireman Apu Happy Icon.png Hooray! Now we have a place to avoid our wives when we're not avoiding them by actually fighting fires.
Dr. Hibbert Sad Icon.png Wait... is the Fire Station now on fire?
Fireman Apu Surprised Icon.png How could this happen?
Fireman Skinner Sad Icon.png I was boiling some water to make ramen, since that's the only thing firemen know how to cook in real life. But then I got distracted answering all the calls from people reporting fires!
Fire Chief Moe Icon.png We need to hire a 911 Operator.
Fireman Homer Annoyed Icon.png We need a lot of things. But first The Simpsons needs to make some episodes with new characters.
Wiggum Eyeswide Icon.png Hey, I got someone for the job... and he already exists!
Fireman Homer Icon.png Who's that?
Ralph Icon.png My foot's name is Jeremy!

We Didn't Start The Fire Pt. 11[]

Character Dialogue
Fireman Skinner Icon.png Okay Ralph, just pick up this phone and say "Nine one one, what's your emergency?"
Phone Icon.png *ring* *ring*
Ralph Phone strangled Icon.png Eight two banana, I got an owie on my breathing.
Fireman Skinner Annoyed Icon.png Close enough.
Fireman Homer Icon.png Now that we've got that figured out, there'll be nothing to distract us from putting out fires.
Fireman Apu Icon.png Let's go back to the firehouse and celebrate.
Fireman Homer Surprised Icon.png Oh crap, the firehouse!
