Lisa Simpson: Lenny and Carl? You guys are Buddhist?
Carl: Oh, yeah. If I didn't have inner peace, I'd go completely psycho on all you guys all the time.
Lisa Simpson: Well, I'm looking for a new faith, one that isn't so materialistic.
Richard Gere: Well, you've come to the right place. Buddhism teaches that suffering is caused by desire.
Lisa Simpson: Richard Gere?
Lenny: Ooh! The world's most famous Buddhist.
Richard Gere: Well, what about the Dalai Lama?
Carl: You know, the fourteenth incarnation of the Buddha Avalokesvara?
Lenny: Who's Buddha?
Richard Gere: It's a good thing Buddhism teaches freedom from desire, 'cause I've got the desire to kick your ass.
