Did You Know?


When Homer and Marge exit the movie theater, having seen the Empire Strikes Back, the Imperial March (Darth Vader's theme music) can be heard playing. The Imperial March does not play in the end credits music until about half way through the credits roll. Presumably, they left the theater when the credits began; the music would not begin until later in the sequence. See more »

Homer: Hey, this marriage is gonna last forever!
Receptionist: Ha, ha! No matter how many times I hear that, it always makes me laugh.

Bittersweet flashback episode
5 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

Marge thinks that she may be pregnant again, but the latest test Homer bought for her is lousy, so she sets off to the doctor. Meanwhile, Homer grabs the opportunity to tell the kids (well, Maggie mostly; Bart and Lisa are on-and-off listeners) the story of his marriage to Marge, his employment in Burns' nuclear plant, and finally Bart's birth. This is one of the better episodes of season 3 up to this point (personally I like it more than "Flaming Moe's", which has a considerably higher IMDb rating), because it's not only funny (Homer's audition for Smithers, Homer spoiling the end of "The Empire Strikes Back", etc.), but it also has a lot of honest emotion, as well as just plain background information, to it: Homer's and Marge's words that show their love for each other are simple and beautifully written. Plus it leaves room for future episodes in the same format. *** out of 4.
