(Newser) Simpsons fans absolutely must check out Frinkiac, a new search engine that finds the screenshot to go with your favorite Simpsons quote. Sean Schulte, Paul Kehrer, and Allie Young built the search engine (named after Springfield's Professor Frink) after realizing how difficult it could be to find the correct scenes to go along with whatever line from the Simpsons they were currently quoting. It debuted this week, Wired reports, and it's quite impressive: Enter your desired quote, and, as long as it's from the first 15 seasons of the show, Frinkiac, which includes 3 million searchable screenshots, will return the appropriate screenshot or shots.

Once you've found the screenshot you want, you can even click the "Make Meme" button to overlay the quote onto the still in that iconic Simpsons font. A post from Kehrer explains how exactly Frinkiac does what it does, or you can just play with the search engine here. (Read more The Simpsons stories.)
