The Blues Isn't About Feeling Better, It's About Making Other People Feel &l
The Blues isn't about feeling better, it's about making other
people feel <worse>, and making a few bucks while your at it.

The blues isn't about feelin' better ... it's about makin' other people feel worse (and makin' a few bucks while you're at it).
-- Bleedin' Gums Murphy, the Jazz Man in "Moaning Lisa", from The Simpso...
Marge: Lisa! Get away from that jazz man! Lisa: But Mom!
Can I stay a little longer? Can I Mom, can I? Marge...
Murphy: My friends call me `Bleeding Gums'. Lisa: Ewwww, how'd you get a name like that?
Murphy: Well let me put it this way... You ever been to the dentist?...
Marge: I'm worried that you're making too big a deal of this silly little kiddie golf tournament.
Homer: But Marge, but this is our big chance to show up the Flandereses....
What other people do we always feel we could do better.
Unfortunately we do not have the same feeling about what we ourselves do. -- E.M. Ciora...
Lisa: I think she likes my present better. \< Ba
Does not! Lisa: |Does too! Bart: | |Does not!...
Lisa: Hi, I have a request. I would like you to do a tribute to Bleeding Gums Murphy, please.
DJ: Aw, I'd love to, little sister, but we don't have his album....
Lisa: Isn't anybody going to show up? Lovejoy: Well, Lisa, we've waited an hour.
[clears his throat, reads] Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to bid farewell to Blood and Guts Murphy....
Lisa: That was beautiful. What's it called? Murphy
Oh, it's a little tune that I call "The `I Never Had an Italian Suit' Blues"....
