"Thank you, come again." Although this might not be the best Apu quote of all time, it's certainly the most memorable. Since he's such a beloved (and apparently controversial) character, let's rank the best Apu quotes in The Simpsons history, with the help of your votes.

The first time Apu's full name was said out loud is a famous quote all on its own: "Apu Nahasapeemapetilon." Some of the best Apu quotes come from the episode "Much Apu About Nothing," in which Apu faces the threat of being deported from the United States. In one of his funniest lines, Apu says to Homer in a horrible 'American' accent: "Say, let's take a relaxed attitude toward work and watch the baseball match. The NY Mets are my favorite squadron." Another one of Apu's best lines is when he puts Homer in his place about respecting his religion: "Please do not offer my god a peanut."
