After accidentally injuring him Monty Burns gives Homer eight weeks paid leave during which time he imagines himself taking amatory lessons from cool, white-suited fictional spy Stradivarius Cain, though, in addition to getting back with Marge, he also charms a drug baron's wife with near unfortunate results. To teach Nelson a lesson for stealing other pupils' lunch money Bart persuades him to eat nothing but Krusty-burgers, which render him obese and unhealthy. Written by don @ minifie-1

The Spy Who Entertained Me,
8 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The Spy Who Learned Me is a terrific Simpsons episode with a good storyline and plenty of funny jokes throughout the episode.It also has a terrific guest appearance from Malcolm In The Middle and Breaking Bads Bryan Cranston as Homers James Bond-like imaginary friend Stradivarius Cain.I especially liked the scenes with the other imaginary friends,which I found to be very funny,I also enjoyed the sub plot and Eric Idles appearance.

After another lousy date night,Marge is very angry with Homer,so Homer makes an imaginary friend from the movie they where watching to make Homer into a man Marge cant resist.Meanwhile,as revenge for Nelson taking his lunch money,Bart gives Nelson a month free coupon to Krusty Burger that makes him very fat.
