Goofs

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 »

A Thoughtful Flashback!
15 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twelfth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it is utterly fantastic, perhaps because it's a funny albeit honest portrayal of the events that took place between Marge and Homer after the first flashback episode, "The Way We Were." I loved the cultural references namely the part where Homer spoiled the ending for The Empire Strikes Back.

In this episode, "I Married Marge," Marge believes she may be pregnant so she goes to the doctor. When she left, Homer tells the kids the story of how Homer and Marge created Bart on a golf course after the movie, how they got married in a lowlife place, and how Homer got his job at the nuclear power plant.

Overall, this is a great episode because it tends to be both funny and emotional. It gets pretty sad when we see Homer try to get after the one he loves despite the lack of money. It is true that they love each other, despite everything. This is a moving portrait of their love. I rate this episode 9/10.
