Trivia

Originally, Marge's trip was to a distressed mother's institute so they could show "what made Marge tick." However, the plot was not well received at the table read for the episode. The writers then re-wrote much of the episode, switching the institute to a spa. See more »

Goofs

Maggie is seen crawling in some scenes, but this is simply a misconception about one-year-olds, and they actually never do crawl. See more »

An often forgotten episode from season 3 with more than a little punch
2 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

The premise of this episode is that Marge is extremely overworked. She has a nervous breakdown and decides a vacation by herself would be for the best. Taking some time for herself thrusts the rest of the Simpsons' family into chaos.

Bart and Lisa go to Patty and Selma's apartment while Maggie stays with Homer at the house. Looking after Maggie for a full day drains Homer, while having to sleep in a bed with Patty and Selma completely terrifies Bart and Lisa.

Some scenes really sparkle in this episode. An exchange between Chief Wiggum and Mayor Quimby is one of them. Troy McClure, as always, shines in this episode as well.

There's a lot to like here but nothing that elevates "Homer Alone" into one of the best from season 3. Give it a watch.
