Written by Jennifer Crittenden
Directed by Susie Dietter

A strong Marge episode with fun B-stories for the rest of the family. Unfortunately this is one of those times where I have no notes, no insights, no complaints I want to share. Not the episode’s fault, just my brain (not) at work.
- -“Say, I wonder if this Homer Nixon is any relation.”
-“Unlikely, sir. They spell and pronounce their name differently.”
