Rex Banner is a character on The Simpsons. He appeared only in the episode in which Prohibition was legalized in Springfield. He was hired to enforce it, putting Clancy Wiggum out of a job. He is inable to smile and dresses in a 1920's detective fashion. Though he is a highly trained detective, he still couldn't catch the Beer Baron (Homer Simpson), who was sneaking beer into Moe's Tavern. Rex was catapulted out of town in the end.

"Listen, rummy, I'm going to say it plain and simple. Where'd you pinch the hooch? Is some blind tiger jerking suds on the side?"

"Remember, people, baby turtles and alligators may seem like a good idea as pets, but they grow up!"

Rex Banner: "Are you the beer baron?"
Comic Book Guy: "Yes, but only by night. By day, I'm a mild-mannered reporter for a major metropolitan newspaper."
Rex Banner: "Don't crack wise with me, tubby!"
Comic Book Guy: "Tubby? Oh yes, tubby."
