For fans of all-things The Simpsons, there’s a new Internet tool to waste time with — a search engine that will match a quote with the appropriate still from the show.

The engine is called the “Frinkiac,” named for the scientist character Dr. Frink from the show. It has more than three million searchable screen grabs covering covering the first 15 seasons of the show, according to Wired. (The Simpsons has been on for 27 seasons, though most hardcore fans think the quality started to decline more than a decade ago.)

So, for instance, if you want to find an image that goes along with Ralph Wiggum saying “Me fail English? That’s unpossible!” you can do just that.

 

“We had the idea several years ago when we were quoting The Simpsons at each other all day long, and it was surprisingly difficult to find an image of the scenes we were quoting on Google,” says Sean Schulte, one of the co-creators, to Wired.
