  1. It’s interesting to me that the bit of Mr. Burns ruining Smither’s relationship is another reference to ‘A Streetcar Named Desire,’ even though we already had most of an episode devoted to it back in season four, which covered the “STELLAAAAAAAAAA!” scene as well.

    I love the act-break with Homer getting in crap for talking to the drive-thru attendant, and then he says “wait, I need closure on that anecdote!”

    You’d think with Moe’s love for Marge (evident within the episode itself), him knowing what turns her on would come up at some point, say when trying to win her over after Homer is in the doghouse (or treehouse, as it were).

    Homer’s horrible misunderstanding of what love is, and what their relationship is, as well as his general treatment of Marge really reinforces how she gets nothing out of their marriage and her life sucks.

    Another great episode, guys!

  2. You guys skipped over my Line of the Show!


  3. Regarding the disembodied voice being in the room gag, wasn’t this used for Karl’s goodbye letter in Simpson and Delilah.
