  • I don't care what anyone says this episode is one of the funniest 30 minutes I have ever spent in my life... Truley a memorable episode, and I will look back on this great humor and say this is what the Simpsons is all about

    Homer sneaks off to a bar to hide from Marge, but while he is at the bar, Homer sings Marge praises. He notices how bitter Moe is and realizes that Moe has not had a girlfriend in a long time. He takes Moe out to another bar to meet chicks. He has no luck, but somehow meets the perfect woman later. He is not exactly smooth with her, but she really seems to like him. He begins to treat her like royalty; unfortunately, he maxes out his Player's Club card and has to find a way to make money. He and Homer decide on a plan where Homer will steal Moe's car and destroy it on the train tracks. The insurance fraud plan hits a snag when Homer steals the car and stops to see a drive-in movie, instead of going straight to the tracks. Homer switches to another plan and sinks the car to the bottom of the lake. The cops are watching him the entire time, so he goes to jail. Moe refuses to stick up for him, because he doesn't want to lose his girlfriend. Homer makes a jail break and Moe eventually tells his girlfriend about his debt, and pitches a plan to her where he will fake his death. That's enough for her, so she leaves him. He goes on with the plan anyway and he sets the bar a blaze. Homer saves him, and their friendship is restored. Without the bar, Moe turns Homer's place into the new hangout.
