he episode begins with the family eating breakfast in the morning. Just as the school bus pulls up, Bart and Lisa run off to get on the bus, forgetting the lunches Marge has made them. Homer looks down at his watch and realizes he is late for work. When Marge leans in for a kiss, Homer is oblivious to her, and instead drinks the last of her coffee. Homer quickly hurries away, leaving Marge feeling depressed and with a mess in the kitchen. As Marge sits in the kitchen she hears an ad on the radio for a call-in therapy talk show hosted by Dr. Marvin Monroe. Marge decides to call, and she explains to Dr. Monroe that she feels Homer doesn't appreciate her anymore and that he isn't romantic like he used to be. Dr. Monroe tells Marge to give Homer an ultimatum when he comes home from work: either he starts loving you or you leave him. Meanwhile, at the power plant, everyone laughs at Homer as they are all listening to the call on the radio. Later after work, Bart plays a prank call on Moe, where Homer just happens to be, because he is too afraid to come home to an angry Marge. Homer asks Moe's advice, and he tells Homer to buy Marge some flowers, take her out to dinner and spend the evening at a motel with her. Homer heads to the flower shop and purchases a rose for Marge. Back at the house Marge gets madder by the minute waiting for Homer to come home.
