Homer: Well, crying isn't gonna bring him back, unless your tears
smell like dog food. So you can either sit there crying and
eating can after can of dog food until your tears smell
enough like dog food to make your dog come back -- or you can
go out there and find your dog.
Bart: You're right! I'll do it.
[Bart runs out the kitchen]
Homer: Rats. I almost had him eating dog food!
-- Homer encourages Bart to retrieve Santa's Little
Helper, "The Canine Mutiny"
