In it, Lisa befriends an animal rights activist (see right) and visits him in prison.
I can’t find a YouTube clip of their conversation, so the transcript is below. I hope it gives you a chuckle.
Lisa: You do Yoga?
Jesse: Yeah, but I started before it was cool.
Lisa: My name’s Lisa Simpson. I think your protest was incredibly brave.
Jesse: Thank you. This planet needs every friend it can get.
Lisa: Oh, the earth is the best! That’s why I’m a vegetarian.
Jesse: Heh. Well, that’s a start.
Lisa: Uh, well, I was thinking of going vegan.
Jesse: I’m a level 5 vegan — I won’t eat anything that casts a shadow.
Lisa: Wow. Um … I started an organic compost pile at home.
Jesse: Only at home? You mean you don’t pocket-mulch? [takes out pocket mulch for Lisa to feel]
Lisa: Oh, it’s so decomposed! Do you think I could join Dirt First?
Jesse: Well … we might have an opening at the poser level.
Lisa: Oh, thank you, thank you!
Lisa: When will all those fools learn that you can be perfectly healthy simply eating vegetables, fruits, grains and cheese?
Apu: Oh, cheese!
Lisa: You don’t eat cheese, Apu?
Apu: No, I don’t eat any food that comes from an animal.
Lisa: Ohh, then you must think I’m a monster!
Apu: Yes, indeed I do think that. But, I learned long ago, Lisa, to tolerate others rather than forcing my beliefs on them. You know, you can influence people without badgering them always. It’s like Paul [McCartney]’s song, “Live and Let Live.”
Paul: Actually, it was “Live and Let Die.”
Apu: Well, whatever, whatever. it had a good rhythm.
