One of the best recent episodes in memory
8 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one has everything, sea cows, rubes, Alec Baldwin, this episode is absolutely great. I never tire of watching it. It is one of those episodes that starts out completely off the wall and keeps going from there. **SPOILERS** Marge leaves homer and goes to the sea, where she meets a manatee expert played by Alec Baldwin. He shows her his world, and invites her to join him as he saves the dugones. We find out that they are quite stupid simple creatures and are definitely not helping their own survival. Homer finally comes to his senses and comes after her, first stopping by Santa's little helpers cousins house to visit. hilarity ensues as he continually refers to everyone as rubes, finally of course reuniting with Marge in the end for a happy ending. worth checking out.
