* Smithers' relationship with Burns can be seen in this context. Originally, Smithers' character was supposed to be an exaggeration of the YesMan (the sycophantic worker who always sucked up to his boss) and was later his personal servant when Burns was shown more at home than in his office at work, but then came gags like Smithers going to The Maison Derriere just to please his parents -- and being disappointed in it -- in "Bart After Dark," Smithers cringing and moaning as female strippers gyrate all around him in "A Hunka Hunka Burns in Love," Smithers imagining Mr. Burns jumping out of a cake in only a sash and seductively singing "Happy Birthday, Mr. Smithers" (as seen in "Rosebud"), Smithers having a computerized version of Mr. Burns on his desktop that says, "You're quite good at turning me on" (as seen in "Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy"), Smithers' vacation at an island of men in "Homer the Smithers," and the "flying in through the window" fantasy (as seen in "Marge Gets a Job"), and soon, you have obsessive viewers wondering if Smithers is gay and in the closet or [[SingleTargetSexuality if he has a massive crush on his boss, regardless of gender]].
** Considering that recent episodes have Smithers openly admitting that he's gay (something that was even a plot point in one episode), it's probably the former.
* At one point music teacher Dewey Largo was caught in a car with Smithers (the show's most obviously gay regular), denying wholeheartedly that they were doing anything other than carpooling.
* In a more recent episode, Homer and Bart are forced to help breed Fat Tony's female horse with a male champion (ItMakesSenseInContext), but the male horse doesn't swing that way. When Homer whispers something to a confused Bart, both Smithers and Mr. Largo can very clearly be heard in his explanation.

** The writers enjoy hinting it such as when the pair were watching Homer and Marge kiss: "Carl remember when we used to kiss like that (beat) with our respective girlfriends?" and also when Homer is organising gay weddings but has run out of clients we get this Crowning Moment of Funny:

* For some other common ones, Homer has the occasional mancrush, including many men that have an interest in Marge.
* Nelson also seems to have some issues, and in the episode, "Little Orphan Millie", where Milhouse's parents go missing, Nelson, as well as Bart are a part of the crowd in the school that fawn over Emo Milhouse.

** Milhouse has also intoxicatedly said about Bart that "this guy here...this is the guy", was very jealous when Bart spent much time with Nelson and once jumped over a waterfall while exclaiming "I can't live in a world without Bart!".
* Also, in "Lisa the Drama Queen", Lisa becomes best friends with Juliet Hobbes, a girl with a British accent who likes roleplaying. And in their fantasy world, they're the two queens who rule over the land of Equalia. And Marge, fearing that their friendship is having a bad effect on Lisa, attempts to separate them.

* There's probably some subtext between Marge and Ruth Powers in "Marge on the Lam", even though both of them aren't 'really' lesbians since Marge is already married to Homer and Ruth is already divorced and willing to look for another man. The fact that the whole episode was a parody of ''Film/ThelmaAndLouise'' didn't help.
* There are some amazing Les-Yayish undertones between Marge and Belle (the Burlesque house owner) in "Bart After Dark".
* Then in The Movie, where Ralph Wiggum, after seeing Bart naked, proclaims "I like men now!"
** He once referred to Bart as his boyfriend and another time he hugs Comic Books Guy and says he will never let go.

* There's an episode where Homer meets Karl (no, not that one!). Karl helps him work to the top, writes his speeches for him, then tells Homer he isn't a fool. Why not? Because his mother told him never to kiss a fool-- which he does then. Homer also accidentally blurts out "I love you Karl- I mean, Marge" when a singing telegram guy shows up at their door.
* On one occasion Homer commented on how attractive another man was and he has been kissed by another man on two separate occasions, and while clearly surprised didn't react negatively either.

* Sideshow Bob and Snake have bonded quite a bit since he was in prison. They even hug during the episode "Black Widower" and Bob leaves Snake with the words "I'm going to miss you most of all, Snake.".

* Smithers. That is all. Though some viewers will try to handwave this as SingleTargetSexuality (meaning that Smithers isn't really attracted to men or women; he's just attracted to his boss Mr. Burns and gender really doesn't matter).
