It’s no surprise that The Simpsons would feature a satirically negative depiction of a politician, but Mayor Quimby’s long history of embezzlement, adultery, and, yes, even murder, somehow manage to defy expectations.
Key Line: ”I’ll admit I used the city treasury to fund the murder of my enemies, but as Gabbo would say, I’m a bad wittle boy.”
Though he seems like he’s just a big, incompetent teddy bear, Chief Wiggum is actually a very bad man. Whether it’s putting a boot Ms. Hoover’s car to get his son a part in the school play, or confiscating a ring toss game because Homer doesn’t bribe him, the sheer number of times he out and out exploits his power as police chief is disturbing. Springfield is basically a police state.
Key Line: ”The man i’m really looking for, wink, is a Mr. Bribe, wink, wink.”
Laurleen’s tenure on The Simpsons was brief but soul crushing. She begins her arc as a struggling cocktail waitress who tries to seduce Homer (with a downright beautiful song) because he’s the only man that’s ever treated her with an ounce of respect. Homer eventually rejects her advances, and she apparently takes it pretty hard because the next time we see her, she’s clearly drunk and her voice actress has switched from Beverly D’Angelo, to the woman who does Lunchlady Dorris. (Note: Apparently she comes back in Season 19 but i’m not gonna talk about that because, well, fuck that…)
Key Line: ”I spent last night in a ditch.”
As the school bully, Nelson is frequently painted as a villain, but when you actually stop to think about the fact that he’s a ten year old boy whose dad walked out on him, and who has obvious issues at home, his anger issues suddenly start to make a lot more sense.
Key Line: “I’m going away for a week. Cya!” (His mother does not seem to care if he disappears for long stretches of time.)
Good luck spotting your favorite.
Ms. Hoover is an alcoholic who shows very clear signs of depression which is not ideal given that she’s responsible for a classroom full of second graders. Clearly, it’s taken a toll on her teaching abilities..
Key Line: ”Since we have fifteen minutes until recess, please put down your pencils and stare at the front of the room.”
You know you want to hang out at Central Perk.
Just because I’m livin’ hard doesn’t mean I’m not livin’ cute.
