LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- If the names Ned Flanders, Krusty the Clown and Charles Montgomery Burns have you quoting your favorite moments from The Simpsons, then there is a new search engine made just for you.

Frinkiac was just launched, and it was built for the most avid Simpsons fans out there. 

The new internet tool features more than three million searchable screen grabs covering the first 15 seasons of the show, according to Wired. The Simpsons has been on air for a whopping 27 seasons.   

The idea is to put in a quote from any of the first 15 seasons and then it search. Frinkiac will pull up dozens of images from the episode or episodes that match it.  

We put in the first Milhouse Van Houten comment from the below conversation and got the images posted with this story. 

Bart: Look at the new kid hogging the teeter-totter like she owns the place!

Milhouse: Yeah, she thinks she's "Baby, Pig in the City." 

Lisa: Give her a break. Remember your first day at school?

Milhouse: Not as long as I keep taking these. [holds up a bottle of pills labeled "Repressitol"]

If you don't understand the name "Frinkiac", then you might not be as big a fan of the show as you thought. It's named for the scientist character Dr. Frink who has made multiple appearances on the show.
