Plot

Homer's vision of the children as "horrible freaks"

Maggie has her first birthday, and the whole family gathers to celebrate. At the party, Grampa is feeling lonely, and when he is bored, Marge suggests she set up a date for him with her mother. They do well until, when on a night on the town, Mrs. Bouvier goes dancing with Mr. Burns, whom she finds to be more dashing. Meanwhile, Bart hears about an Itchy & Scratchy animation cel which costs $350 when he is watching a TV shopping channel. He buys one with one of Homer's credit cards. Mr. Burns declares that he is in love with Mrs. Bouvier, against Marge's interests. Bart gets $350 from Mr. Burns to pay Homer back. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

It is the day of the wedding, and Mr. Burns and Marge's mother attempt to marry. Only minutes before Mrs. Bouvier becomes Mrs. Montgomery Burns, in a scene similar to one from The Graduate, Grampa crashes the ceremony by arguing that Mrs. Bouvier not get married to Mr. Burns. Partly due to Burns' obnoxious behavior, she declares that she does not want to marry either man, and they hop on a bus and look anxious about their future. For the novel of the same name, see The Graduate (novel). ...


Cultural references

Charlie Chaplin reference
    • "Charles Chaplin" for his "unauthorized imitation" of the bread roll dancing scene in the 1925 silent movie The Gold Rush. (In fact it had been in the public domain for nearly 40 years when this episode first aired.)
    • Jimmy Durante for his mournful walk down a dimly-lit sidewalk while wearing a trilby.
  • Mrs. Bouvier's favorite tune - played at the dance and later by Grandpa Simpson at the wedding - is Glenn Miller's "Moonlight Serenade".
  • The swing tune played during Jackie and Mr. Burns' dance is the 1936 piece "Sing, Sing, Sing", written by Louis Prima and performed by Benny Goodman.
  • In exchange for his worthless animation cel, Bart is given a humorous telephone shaped like Mary Worth, a comic strip teacher who dispenses advice on real-life issues.
  • Prompted by Smithers, Mr. Burns confuses Homer and family with the cast of The Flintstones, which at the time of this episode's first broadcast was the longest-running American prime-time cartoon (a record The Simpsons later broke).
  • The stand off between Bart and Mr. Burns spoofs a scene from the film Reservoir Dogs.
  • Grandpa Simpson banging on the window while shouting "Mrs. Bouvier!", and the subsequent getway on the bus, are references to the film The Graduate, as is the closing song, a parody of "The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel.
  • Mrs. Bouvier was arrested for indecent exposure- in 1923.
  • The mailman who delivered the Itchy and Scratchy animation cel was black first,and yellow in the next scene.

Her grandfather, known as "Grampy Jack" or "Grampy Bouvier" to his ten grandchildren and "the Major" to everyone else, was the center of summer family life at Lasata, the stucco, ivy-clad house on Further Lane.
When the Bouviers first arrived in East Hampton as summer visitors in 1912, the place was still a "simple" resort compared with the more sophisticated Southampton, with saltbox houses, a duck pond and a village green sheltered from the ocean by huge sand dunes.
Even after the Bouviers' unmasking in the sixties, Jackie's eccentric cousin Edie Beale boasted to writer Gail Sheehy in 1972, "We're all descended from fourteenth-century French kings." When Jackie married John F. Kennedy in 1953, newspaper reports trumpeted the alliance of the wealthy Boston Irish senator with the descendant of a family of French aristocrats.
