Marge starts a business selling healing crystals and other New Age products to the naive mothers of Springfield when Homer's work cuts children's health-care benefits.

The crystal store that Marge goes to is called "FAO Quartz", a spoof of the New York City toy store FAO Schwartz. One of the books it sells is titled "Eat my Quartz", which is derived from Bart's early catchphrase "Eat my shorts". See more
