The Haw-Hawked Copule

This scene in The Simpson's made me laugh so damn hard. Episode setup: After Bart convinces all his friends not to go to Nelsons birthday party, Marge forces him to attend. After the party, Bart becomes Nelsons new best friend and under Nelsons protection no one dares to mess with Bart. Theres only drawback to his newfound friend/bodyguard he can no longer pal around with Milhouse.

Homer is driving Bart to the party. "Dad, don't make me go! I'll give you a backrub!"
"Ohhhh, your elbow's like an angel's kiss. But you still have to go!"
"Why?"
"Son," [laughing], "we all have to do things we don't want to! Like, have jobs and families and responsibilities and" [turning angry], "having to be Mr. Funny all the time! You think I wouldn't rather be living nude in the forest, like some ancient Pagan, just dancing around playing the pan flute!" [tone returns normal] "And here we are."

Can anyone recommend some good video editing software so that I can cut that clip out?
