  • Marge goes on the run from the law in a Thelma and Louise-esque situation with her new best friend, Ruth Powers.

    There are very few Marge episodes that work well,which is a shame because she is a good character but this episode stands out from all the others. It is good character building for Marge, and Homer has some of his best moments ever in this episode. I found Chief Wiggum very funny in this episode also. It showed every character doing what they do best and generally a good episode. The writers didn't fall into the trap of making the episode too Thelma and Louise related so that they left out the funny bits. This combination of comedy and Thelma and Louise work spectacularly together.
