  • After another fight with Marge Homer gets in the car and drives hundreds of miles to a red neck bar. There he meets waitress (and aspiring singer) Lurleen Lumpkin. After listening to one of her songs Homer decides to start her music career.


    This episode is my favorite of the series. Lurleen's (Voiced by Bevery D'Angelo) song is hysterical and there are many laughs throughout. The scene of Homer's drive to Flaming Pete's is terrific. Homer provides the most laughs by being totally oblivious to Lurleen's sexual advances. The scene at the recording studio is one of the funniest moments in the entire series. The laughs make up for the fairly predictable ending (Who didn't think Homer would catch on and realize that Lurleen was trying to get him to leave Marge?). Any fan of The Simpsons should not miss this classic episode.
