** "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E11FearOfFlying Fear Of Flying]]": A RunningGag throughout the episode is Homer believing that the therapist will turn Marge against him by trying to put the blame of all of Marge's problems onto him ([[TechnicallyTrue not that he]] ''isn't'' to blame for a lot of Marge's problems, but he assumes that the therapist will somehow brainwash Marge into getting a divorce after apparently seeing it happen many times before with other men). After a pretty bad first impression and Marge getting her fear of flying fixed, the therapist ''[[BrickJoke do]]'' tries to talk to Marge about "the big problem" that is Homer... and Homer barges into the office to take Marge away.

** [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS15E11MargicalHistoryTour "Margical History Tour"]]: Margerine takes Henry to marriage counseling in the hopes of stopping the king from marrying someone else. However the therapist (Hibbert) is all for Henry kicking his wife the the curb. Having four men push axes against his neck threatening to kill him the second he tried to talk about saving the marriage might have something to do with it.
