Marge gets a job with Lionel Hutz as a real estate agent but she is so honest in her opinions of the properties that she fails to sell a single house and Hutz tells her she will be fired unless she can make a sale. She succeeds in selling a house which was once the scene of a brutal murder to Ned and Maude Flanders but feels guilty about it and tries to talk them out of the sale. However the house gets destroyed in a police chase and Marge,having handed back the Flanders's money,gets the sack.
