Apu Nahasapeemapetilon (Bengali: আপু নাহাসাপিমাপেটিলন) is a fictional character in the animated TV series The Simpsons. He is the Indian immigrant proprietor of the Kwik-E-Mart, a popular convenience store in Springfield, and is best known for his catchphrase, “Thank you, come again.” He is voiced by Hank Azaria and first appeared in the episode “The Telltale Head”.
Since 2007, the character’s alleged stereotyping of Indians, and voicing by a non-Indian, have been the source of controversy.
Oh my god! If a dead fish and a homeless person had a baby and the baby puked, and a dog ate the puke, this smells like the rear end of that dog!
Thank you, masked vigilante. Your over-zealous homicide has saved me 80 cents. Now if you’re not going to buy anything, please move along.
Homer: Your old meat made me sick.
Apu: I am so sorry, sir. Please accept five pounds of frozen shrimp.
Homer: These shrimp aren’t frozen, and they smell funny.
Apu: Okay, ten pounds.
Thank you for coming. I’ll see you in Hell!
Apu: It may not be glamorous, but it’s good honest work.
Customer: How much is this quart of milk?
Apu: Twelve dollars.
Apu: I would like to see this money spent on more police officers. I have been shot eight times this year. As a result, I almost missed work.
Chief Wiggum: Cry-baby.
Apu: Poor Mister Homer. Could it be that my snack treats are responsible for his wretched health?
Customer: Give me some jerky.
Apu: Would you like some vodka with that?
Customer: Oh, what the hell, sure.
