Did You Know?


The story of the episode came about when David Sacks came into the writers' room with an idea for an episode where Marge goes to a therapist "for one reason or another". Sacks and the other writers then structured the rest of the plot around that storyline. See more »


When Homer goes to Cheers, Carla tells Sam he can't go out with two twins. There was no reason to mention there were two of them. This may have been intentional, considering the way Carla would often talk on the actual television series. See more »


Homer: Wait a minute... there's something bothering me about this place. I know - this lesbian bar doesn't have a fire exit! Enjoy your death trap, ladies.
Lesbian: What's her problem?

Another Good Episode
21 March 2018 | by Gerardrobertson61See all my reviews

Another strong episode in Season 6, where we learn that Marge is afraid of flying and that Homer is afraid of sock puppets. There is a good parody of Cheers with most of the regular cast having a line (except Kelsey Grammer, for obvious reasons). Marge's visit's to the psychiatrist is well done and Anne Bancroft makes a great shrink, all in all, another solid Simpsons episode.
