¡Ay, caramba! is a phrase commonly used by Bart Simpson. It is his second most commonly used catchphrase, behind "Eat my shorts!". "¡Ay, caramba!" were also Bart's first words. He first said it when he was a baby and saw Homer and Marge in bed having sex. Bart uses the phrase to express surprise, emotional distress or discomfort.


¡Ay, ca-ram-ba! - In The Great Simpsina, after Lisa takes some scissors off Bart's mouth, Homer starts shaking him upside down, which resulted in a paused version of the phrase.
