  • Marge On The Lam

    Marge invites her neighbor Ruth Powers out to a ballet performance. The two have a great time and agree to go out more often. The next night, Ruth pulls up in a convertible wearing jeans and a leather jacket. Ruth and Marge head off to several night clubs before driving up to the Springfield sign that overlooks the town. Homer arrives just as they are leaving, and runs into Chief Wiggum who offers to drive him home. Wiggum tries to pull over Ruth's car for a minor infraction, but Ruth speeds up since she stole the car from her ex husband. Homer and Wiggum speed off and chase the car. Ruth wants to give herself up when several other police cars join the race, but Marge talks her out of it. They are now driving through the desert towards a chasm. Homer believes they are trying to kill themselves, and before they hit the chasm Homer over a bullhorn apologises to Marge for being a bad husband. The car stops just before hitting the chasm, but Homer and Wiggum's car goes over the edge, landing safely on a pile of garbage.
