Trivia

Mrs. Sinclair is reading "The Fountainhead Diet," a reference to Ayn Rand's novel The Fountainhead. A poster in the daycare center reads "A is A," which is the title of the last section of Atlas Shrugged. Another poster, "Helping is Futile," crudely reflects her rejection of altruism. See more »

Goofs

In response to Marge staying in character as Blanche DuBois in order to rehearse, Bart also "goes into character" by adopting a Cockney (East London) accent and vocabulary. But "gulliver" which Bart uses for "head" is not authentic Cockney (the correct word is "loaf") but Nadsat, the fictional argot invented by Anthony Burgess for his novel "A Clockwork Orange". This probably shows Bart's ignorance of the culture he's trying to ape. See more »

Marge: I don't think so.
Homer: Bart, don't ask stupid questions. Is there any frontal nudity?

A Theatrical Marge!
1 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the second episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and like many Season Four episodes, this is a landmark episode which explores the relationship behind the marriage of Homer and Marge. It was interesting to see Marge act in a play and even sing. I also loved the cultural references, mainly regarding Steve McQueen's The Great Escape and Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds. The episode is funny, but it also has some emotional moments which is a testament to the superb writing.

In this episode, "A Streetcar Named Marge," Marge decides to act in a play, "A Streetcar Named Desire" in order to meet people and that has Ned Flanders in the starring role as Stanley. Marge gets increasingly angry at Homer's selfish attitude during preproduction. Meanwhile, Marge enlists Maggie at a local daycare center and when her pacifier is taken, Maggie creates a plan in order to get them back.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode. It has its fair share of humor and cultural references, but I never knew the episode would get emotional at certain points. It is certainly more layered than I anticipated. I rate this episode 9/10.
