Marge goes gray,
19 April 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Blue And The Gray is a great Simpsons episode,funniest part when Lisa says that Jessica Simpson is her cousin.

When Marge discovers her first grey hair,her hairdresser tells her that she has grey hair all over but he was just hiding it with blue dye,Marge decides to go completely gray and feels that the whole family are happy about it,but they are actually disgusted.

Meanwhile Moe realises that he can only find a woman if he has a wing man to make him look good so he gets his buddy Homer to do so,but a lot of the women also start to fall for him.
