Is anyone else sick of this?

So thats where it comes from. I've always wondered where that particular phrase came from  :)

Does anybody mind telling me who said it in The Simpsons and why, I'm kinda curious?  :)

It's from "Threehouse Of Horror X", the segment is called "Desperately Xeeking Xena".

Lucy Lawless (in her Xena gear) speak to a group of fans about her show "Xena: Warrior Princess".

Lawless: "... but I'm sure that once girls get to know the real you, you'll get plenty of dates.  Next question."
[hands go up.  She picks Frink]
Frink: "Yes, over here, n'hey, n'hey.  In episode BF12, you were battling barbarians while riding a winged Appaloosa, yet in the very next scene, my dear, you're clearly atop a winged Arabian.  Please do explain it."
Lawless: "Ah, yeah, well, whenever you notice something like that, a wizard did it."
Frink: "I see, all right, yes, but in episode AG4 --"
Lawless:   "Wizard!"
Frink: [under breath] "Aw, for glaven out loud."

From there it streamrolled into the cliché we know today.
