Marge gets implants.
Lisa and Homer make a bet on who would win the 1948 presidential election. Lisa wins and she gets to choose the activity for Daddy-Daughter Day. Her activity is taking part in building homes for Habitat for Humanity alongside Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George H. W. Bush (who parody the three stooges). While painting, Homer takes off his wedding ring in order not to get paint on it, and Lindsay Naegle and Cookie Kwan mistakenly think Homer is a recently divorced bachelor. Marge, driving by, sees Homer appearing to flirt with the women (though he is actually explaining how Marge gave birth to Bart). She worries that Homer has lost interest in her, so she decides to get liposuction, on the advice of Manjula. Unfortunately, a mix-up causes her to get breast implants, which were intended for one of Mayor Quimby's interns. The doctor says that Marge must wait for 48 hours before the implants can be removed. Marge is furious with the new implants. Meanwhile, Bart and Milhouse watch an old episode of Batman, featuring Krusty as a villain named Clownface, who threatens the pair with a rapidly spinning carousel of death. Bart and Milhouse like the idea, inspiring them to recreate the stunt, with Bart putting Milhouse on a merry-go-round in school. Otto uses the bus to kick-start the merry-go-round, spinning it at an incredible speed. The bolts give way and the merry-go-round goes flying through the air, knocking over the school flag. Milhouse vomits on the flag while Iwo Jima veterans are visiting the school. Bart explains to Principal Skinner that he saw Krusty do the stunt on TV, and in response, Skinner leads a group protesting against Krusty, who is now seen as a dangerous influence to children. Krusty's show is revamped to exclude all possibly dangerous elements, destroying the show's popularity with children. After coming home from her surgery, Marge realizes that her very large breasts are making her life difficult after trying to hug Maggie and open the cupboard. Marge tries to hide her breasts from her family, but Homer and the kids find out Marge's secret after a few short hours. Homer, Marge and the kids go out for dinner to the local Italian restaurant so Homer can flaunt the new Marge. Luigi, who had just rejected the Flanders family, immediately admits the Simpson family after seeing Marge's breasts. Homer soon starts singing about Marge's breasts, and is joined in a musical number by several other male patrons. Kiekie, a trade show executive, approaches Marge and offers her a modeling job from A.C. Milan. Marge accepts and initially enjoys the experience, but later experiences back pain because of her heavy breasts. She also finds herself being ogled and pinched by every man in Springfield. At the Springfield Shoe Expo, Marge is further humiliated by lustful men while promoting shoe horns. At the same time, Bart helps Krusty to win back his popularity, using Milhouse and Stampy (Bart's old pet elephant) in a stunt. The stunt quickly goes out of control when Stampy stuffs Milhouse and Bart in his mouth. Homer tries to save them, but suffers the same fate. Krusty forgets the word that was supposed to make Stampy submit and lie down. The police decide to shoot at Stampy, which would endanger Homer, Bart and Milhouse. Marge appears on the scene, and after unsuccessfully trying to dissuade the police shooting, distracts the police by revealing her huge breasts to the assembled crowd. Krusty, still hated by residents of Springfield, saves the day by accidentally saying Stampy's safety word, "Magumbo". Stampy releases Bart, Milhouse and Homer, and Krusty is hailed as a hero and his popularity is restored with the town. The next day, The Springfield Shopper proclaims that Krusty saved the day, in a very small article that's barely a paragraph, while the headline reads "Crazed mom goes topless!", promising 25 pages worth of pictures inside. Marge gets the implants taken out and is greeted by a surprisingly happy Homer who proclaims that it's good to be able to get his arms around her to hug her again.moreless
Marge gets breast implants.
Ah I can remember the first time I watched this episode because I was laughing so hard. Maybe this was not the type of Simpsons humor we are accoustomed to. This was just a crude humor type of episode, but I still felt that it was just simply hilarious. The whole bit with Krusty saving the day was priceless, and the musical number at Luigi's was just flat out hilarious. Not to mention Marge thinking Homer is cheating on her. Anyway to be honest, I simply loved this episode. I am also confident that you'll find this episode funny too!moreless
Hilarious flippen Hilarious... How could you not like this episode?
After winning a bet with Homer on the Dewey/Truman presidential election of 1948, Lisa gets to pick the day's father/daughter activity. She chooses to help build houses for the homeless. After getting paint on his wedding ring, Homer takes it off. Two business women see Homer's bare finger and take to him. Driving past the scene, Marge sees what she thinks is Homer flirting with the women. In fact, he's explaining in detail how Marge gave birth to Bart.
Marge begins to worry that Homer isn't as attracted to her. Manjula advises plastic surgery, and Marge goes under the knife for some liposuction. Waking up, she finds that the doctor accidentally gave her breast implants instead. At first, Marge enjoys the attention and her new trade show modeling career. But she eventually tires of the leering and back spasms and gets the breasts removed.moreless
This is pretty much a typical "new" Simpson's episode.
However, ít isn't as bad as "new" episodes usually are.
This episode has an below average plot.
I'm starting to get into the "new" episodes now, because most of them are way better then I ever gave them credit for.
The humour in this episode is dull, uninteresting, and silly. But most of all, it isn't all that funny.
If it's on, and you have nothing better to do, then watch it, but if you're smart, you'll most likely change the channel, or do something else after 5 minutes.
Having said that, nothing really offended me in this episode. So it doesn't really bother me that it is below average, it's good enough for me.moreless
Marge with breast implants? Why not?
Lisa and Homer make a bet on who would win the 1948 presidential election, with Lisa betting Harry S. Truman and Homer going for Thomas Dewey. Lisa win and she has to choose the activity for Daddy-Daughter Day. Her activity is taking part in building homes for the homeless. When Homer paints a house, he takes off his wedding ring in order not to get paint on it, and Lindsay Naegle and Cookie Kwan mistake Homer for being a bachelor. Marge, driving by, sees Homer flexing for the women (though he is actually discussing the history of how Marge gave birth to Bart). She worries that Homer has no interest in her anymore, so she decides to get liposuction, on the advice of Manjula.
Unfortunately, a mix-up causes her to get breast implants. Marge's doctor says that she has 48 hours to live with her breasts until she makes a decision whether to keep them or not.
Meanwhile, Bart and Milhouse watch an old episode of Batman, featuring Krusty as a villain named Clownface, who threatens the Dynamic Duo with a rapidly spinning carousel of death. Bart and Milhouse like the idea, inspiring them to recreate the stunt, with Bart putting Milhouse on a roundabout in school. Otto starts the roundabout causing him to spin extremely fast with his bus, the roundabout to go flying through the air and knocking over the flag. Milhouse throws up on the flag while Iwo Jima veterans visit the school. Principal Skinner was about to blame Bart on this, and Bart says that he saw Krusty do the stunt on TV, and in response, Skinner leads a group protesting against Krusty, who is now seen as a dangerous influence to children.
At home, Marge tries to hug Maggie but she realises her breasts are making her life difficult. Homer, who comes home, sees Marge with her breast implants, and the family goes to dinner. The waiter, who had just rejected the Flanders said that there were no more seats but admits the Simpson family to a really good table after seeing her breast. The chef serves them real spaghetti, while Principal Skinner and his mother are eating some frozen canned spaghetti. Homer and several men start singing about Marge's breasts, and she meet a trade show executive, who gives her a modeling job. Marge prepares for the spot in the show, but her new appearance gives her problems when she is there. Bart recruits Krusty to win back his trust, using Milhouse and Stampy (Bart's old pet elephant) in a stunt, which of course goes out of control by stuffing Milhouse and Bart in his mouth. Homer tries to save them, but Stampy also puts him in his mouth. Krusty forgets the word that was supposed to make Stampy fall down and roll over. Things go horribly wrong, when the cops decide to shoot at Stampy, which would endanger Homer, Bart and Milhouse. To distract the cops, Marge takes off her dress and shows her breasts to everyone. Krusty, still hated by residents of Springfield, saves the day by uttering Stampy's safety word, Magumbo ("Look at those magumbos!") when he sees Marge's breasts, releasing Bart, Milhouse, and Homer.
The next day, the Springfield Shopper shows photos of Marge's breasts worth 25 pages, Krusty gets everybody's trust back and Marge decides to remove her implants, and everything goes back to normal.moreless
Marge gets implants
A lot of people refer to this episode as crazy because it is out of character for marge to get breast impants but it was accidental as she was trying to get a liposuction. i found this episode very funny especially the third act where stampy returns and homer's hilarious quote "I came out of the elephant's mouth, right? because i already showered once today". homer trying to mimick bart's grafiti skills by signing El Homo on the wall is an example of just how slow and dimwitted homer constantly is. this episode is surely a classic and should be remembered for it's humour and the reactions of the townspeople and not the unrealistic plot.moreless
Marge with implants? It happened
As hard as it is to believe Marge (the responsible one) got implants. Its funny watching peoples reactions and her trying to walk properly.
I can uderstand why people have issues with episodes like this, but I know the show doesn't take itself too seriously so thats why I don't.
Overall its a pretty silly episode, but there are laughs so it is enjoyable.
Rude, but pretty good.
It was pretty good. was kinda shocked to see Marge's boobs very big. It was rude and weird but still kinda funny if you ask me. And when she takes her bra off... good thing you didn't see it lol, or the Simpsons would become a 15 or something! I loved it when Homer discovers her implants and at dinner the next night and Homer and the men of Springfield sing the praises of her new endowment! And Marge getting offered a trade show modeling job for crowds... everyone went to it. Funny, good story... and kinda rude if you ask me, but still a fun eppie.moreless
Large Marge is a pretty good episode.
Hmm... I'm in two minds about this episode. In one sense, it was funny and the plot progressed well, even incorporating a sub-plot. But in another way, the episode was lame, smutty, and it had a feeble story line.
I guess I had better explain myself. The main storyline: Marge mistakenly gets breast implants. As soon as you hear this, you start to wonder if they are running out of (good) ideas. You think that the episode could be good if done properly. But there were some terrible jokes about breasts in this episode. Homer calling them "the twins," as if they were part of the family is one such example.
But then at the other end of the scales, we have some good jokes, and a decent sub-plot, which gets incorporated back into the main storyline at the end of the episode. It was also good to see the return of Stampy, Bart's elephant. And Krusty, of course, he's always good. I can't think of a bad Krusty episode ever.Well, the episode gets a decent mark, but I still think the writers can do better.
