After a stressful day, Marge has a nervous breakdown and parks her car in the middle of a bridge. Marge decides to take a vacation by herself. Bart and Lisa are sent to stay with Patty and Selma, while Homer is left at home to take care of Maggie. When Maggie goes missing, Homer only just manages to find her before Marge gets home.
