5 March 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm afraid the twist you describe most likely doesn't exist. I have re-watched the end of the episode since reading your comment. The manageress of the nightclub orders him a taxi for the Duke's Head and when he returns to his room, it has a room number on it 301. He also has to unlock it to get in. It is clear he/they are staying in a hotel. Additionally his wife says they have a long way to travel the following day. Finally they may or may not have been visiting from America. I could see nothing in the final scene to support one side or another except to say that the wife has no real American accent.

Besides these points, I couldn't really see the point of the Marge character, or the exchange at the beginning with the band or Sid's dislike of Americans. It's not as if they were particularly good Red Herrings. I agree with the first review that this is one of the worst episodes in the series.
