Storyline

Plot Summary

After he gets fired at the plant, Homer gets a job as a car salesman. There he comes across an old ambulance and decides to become an ambulance driver. Not hindered by any medical knowledge Homer starts his new job. Marge also found a new pastime: writing. She writes a book and manages to get it published. It's the talk of the town, not in the least because the book's not very flattering about Homer and suggests a love connection between Flanders and Marge. Written by Marco van Hoof

Quotes Homer Simpson: I'll have to read Marge's book. And I swore never to read again after 'To Kill a Mockingbird' gave me no useful advice on killing mockingbirds. It did teach me not to judge a man based on the color of his skin, but what good does that do me?
