It's Marge's birthday and Homer has to get her a birthday present. Instead of getting a present for Marge, he buys a bowling ball for himself with his name printed on it. Marge is mad that he didn't get her a present and she says she will use it. The following day, she goes to the bowling alley but she doesn't know how to use it. A handsome bowling instructor meets Marge and teaches her how to bowl, but he's really trying to get her to fall in love with him. Marge keeps going to the bowling alley each day to learn and has a deep connection with him. She realizes that she's hanging out with the wrong man and goes to her husband instead.
