The music playing over the montage of Marge making money from her pretzel business is from the soundtrack from NFL Films. The piece is called "The Lineman". See more »


Fat Tony: Sorry we're late. Can we have the money now?
Marge Simpson: The answer is no.
Fat Tony: I'm afraid I must insist. You see, my wife she has been most vocal on the subject of the pretzel monies. "Where is the money?" "When are you going to get the money?" "Why aren't you getting the money now?" And so on.
[moving forward menacingly]
Fat Tony: So please, the money.
