Very nice widget. I use this and you Family Guy one.

I have a suggestion:
Often times, particularly in the Simpsons one, a quote is so long that the scroll bar comes up, which I find to be annoying.

Could you make an option to have a bigger dialogue, or better yet, have it autosize to fit the quote?

That would be sweet.

Very clean interface, lots of quotes, and even little icons of the characters. Great idea for a widget!!! I could sit here and read quotes all day long. The only thing is (like just about every internet list I've seen of simpsons quotes), many of the quotes have minor inaccuracies or are slightly misquoted. But otherwise, a great widget.

From console.log:

2005-08-01 17:12:07.828 DashboardClient[813] bindings/objc/WebScriptObject.mm:214:[813] JavaScript exception: Can't find variable: thumbTop
(event handler):Can't find variable: thumbTop
2005-08-01 17:12:20.262 DashboardClient[813] (com.jonlink.simpsonbot) undefined: Can't find variable: thumbTop (line: 0)
(event handler):Can't find variable: thumbTop

Several of these appear every time the widget tries to load a quote. Also, I'm not too fond of the bloated-looking window, but that's just personal preference. I wish I didn't delete the previous version.

Any chance of a Family Guy widget like this?

Like hell. The Simpsons will always be classic. Perhaps you watch too much tv . . .
