  • Due to her fear of never finding the right man and dying alone, Marge's sister Selma tells the family she found a new boyfriend through a prison pen pal program. That boyfriend is none other than Sideshow Bob.

    The second of many episodes to feature Robert Terwilliger is nothing short of hilarious. There is no shortage of laughs in this well written episode which is loaded with laughs. The Emmy awards ceremony where Sideshow Bob took home an Emmy will have you laughing from start to finish. There were some formula plot devices however. Bart being the only person who believes Bob has a devious plan and Bob swearing he is a changed man are two of them. As is the case with many Sideshow Bob episodes, those flaws are very easily overcome by the overall episode. Hysterical.
