What Happens If Homer Stops Drinking?
7 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the sixteenth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and it's a very good, incredibly hilarious episode. It does have some moral themes regarding drinking and driving and the effects of alcohol on your body. The episode also shows what happens to Homer when his beer is taken away from him. My favorite scene is where Chief Wiggum messes up the terms of DWI and DOA.

In this episode, "Duffless," Homer is arrested for DWI and has his license suspended and is forced to take Alcohol Anonymous. He also promises Marge to forgo drinking for a month. Meanwhile, Bart and Lisa are doing science fair projects and Lisa has a project comparing the smartness of a hamster and Bart.

Overall, this is a very solid episode that have many highlights. I also liked how Flanders attend the AA meetings, despite not having a drink in four thousand days. A very good episode with some moral themes. I rate this episode 9/10.
