Public Transportation is for Jerks and Lesbians

Quote from Mr H J Simpson

Some of my friends are a bit like Homer Simpson when it comes to using the tube. They wouldn't go as far as saying that "
public transportation is for jerks and lesbians" but they just don't use it for a variety of reasons - claustrophobia and safety issues mainly.

I found this top Homer quote from Heidi's excellent me , my life + infrastructure. And a fair bit of Googling tracked the Simpsons episode down to Brake My Wife, Please. I did watch this episode over Xmas but missed the "jerks and lesbians" quote as the images of Homer faxing for help after going over a jetty in his gadgeted up car (how he lost his licence) were still with me.
