YEARDLEY SMITH: (as Lisa Simpson) I kind of want to create my own thing. Do you sell any just plain sets?
UNIDENTIFIED MAN: (as character) No. We do all be imagining for you.
SMITH: (as Lisa Simpson) Well, I'll just buy one of these and build something different.
UNIDENTIFIED MAN: (as character) You do any better build yourself a lawyer.
