** Also, Lisa should have known that not everyone on Homer's side of the family is an idiot, a freak, a sexual deviant, or a failure, as seen in [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E17LisaTheSimpsons "Lisa the Simpson,"]] when she learns that all the women on Homer's side of the family (save for Homer's half-brother, Herb, who, despite going broke twice, was a fairly successful businessman) are smart, emotionally mature, and are in high-paying, respectable careers. And why didn't she think to look into Marge's side of the family for good family members, or Mona's side of the family before she married Abe?
