Best fringe Simpsons character?

    The idea for this thread came from the Best Simpson episode thread. Who is the best character on The Simpsons that is outside of the actual family. Must be a recurring character, not a one-episode shot.

    My vote goes to Milhouse. Here are some of his highlights:

    "Oh Puppy Goo-Goo, fetch me a dream."
    "So this is what its like when doves cry."
    "Remember Alf? He's back ... in pog form."
    "Who knows vacation destinations better than AAA? According to the AAA Travel Guide, nobody."
    "Everything's coming up Milhouse!"
    "Look out Itchy! He's Irish!"
    "My Dad's a pretty big wheel down at the cracker factory."

    ALTHOUGH, an argument can certainly be made for Ralph Wiggum. This one gets me everytime: "Hello Super Nintendo Chalmers."

    "I-I'm so hungry, I could eat at Arby's."

    Milhouse is not a bad choice, and if you run him as a coupled entry with Kirk Van Houten, they make a pretty strong tandem.

    But Troy McClure is King and Ralph Wiggum is second.

    'Ol Gil ain't bad either.

    Maybe my memory is foggy, but I think this is a scene.

    Giul's selling cars and in the background, you see his name at the bottom of the sales list, which has pictures of cars next to each salesman, one for each they sold.

    Beside Gil's name? Half a car.

    I think Milhouse and father would be an undeniable No. 1. Remember the name of Mr. Van Houten's album - "Can I Borrow a Feeling?"

    Homer: "Hahahahaha"
    Van Houten: "Go ahead Homer, laugh at me."
    Homer: "I already did."

    Some folk'll never eat a skunk
    But then again, some folk'll...
    Like Cletus
    The slack-jawed yokel.

    Most folk'll never lose a toe
    And then again, some folk'll...
    Like Cletus
    The slack-jawed yokel.

    Ralph is by far the best:

    Me fail English? That's unpossible.

    Hi, Super Nintendo Chalmers!

    Homer: There's your giraffe, little girl.
    Ralph Wiggum: I'm a boy.
    Homer: That's the spirit. Never give up.

    Ralph: That's my swingset, and that's my sandbox. I'm not allowed to go in the deep end. And this is where I met the leprechaun.
    Bart: Right, the leprechaun.
    Ralph: He told me to burn things.

    Ralph: [whispering] Lisa, what's the answer to number seven?
    Lisa: [whispering] Sorry, Ralph. That would defeat the purpose of testing as a means of student evaluation.
    Ralph: [pauses] My cat's name is Mittens

    Bart Simpson (spelling "Impervious"): I...M...P
    Nelson: Bart is pee!
    Ralph Wiggum: I made Bart in my pants!

    My cat's breath smells like cat food.

    (To a wolf): Will you be my mommy? ...You smell like dead bunnies.

    Lisa: Where'd Mrs. Hoover go?
    Ralph: She drove her car to the moon.

    Ralph: Mrs. Hoover?
    MH: Yes Ralph?
    R: I don't have any paste.
    MH: Where is it?
    R: I ate it.
    MH: Just put your head down and sleep while the other children are learning.
    R: Sleep! That's where I'm a viking!"

    And best of all: "I beat the smart kids, I beat the smart kids! (trips) I bent my wookie."

    Hi, I'm Troy McClure. You might remember me from educational films such as "Lead Paint: Delicious but Deadly" ...
