Storyline

Dating on the Internet Moe cannot believe his luck when he sees a photo of the beautiful Maya but when they meet she turns out to be unnaturally short. He considers having an operation to cut him down to her size but she believes he is only seeing her as short rather than beautiful and leaves him - with a pleasant memory. Homer meanwhile is claiming to spend his days with Maggie but is leaving her in a park behind Moe's tavern where she is threatened by bullying infants. After Marge has worked out the problem Homer rallies to his daughter's defence though it's Maggie who stops Homer from getting beaten up by the other tots. Written by don @ minifie-1

Homer Simpson: Not a thing in the world.
Moe Szyslak: Yeah, I wish I could say the same.
Homer Simpson: Moe, this is a great thing for you. You went from sitting on the sidelines to getting in the game! Sometime, when you least expect it, you'll realize that someone loved you. And that means that someone can love you again! And that'll make you smile.

This episode hearkens back to the old style Simpsons.
23 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A good couch gag leads to a solid episode.

Moe meets Maya online. She's a beautiful woman who's actually interested in him. But she's a little person so he feels a little uneasy about her. He's scared to introduce her to the guys fearing they won't accept her. He proposes but in usual Moe style, ends up botching it and she tells him to leave. While this is going on Maggie is also being bullied at the playground outside of the bar. I didn't find that plot line to be very interesting except the scene with Homer and Marge at the end, it was heartwarming.

Maya really does care for Moe but he misses the point of what it means to truly love someone. So it didn't work out with Maya and Homer gives Moe some great advice. I can't say it better than Homer....

"Sometime when you least expect it, you'll realize that someone loved you and that means someone can love you again, and that'll make you smile."
