* TheAlcoholic: Helen Lovejoy implies Marge drinks. Marge's incredibly tense reaction suggests it's true, although it's just as likely she's tense because Helen's gleefully digging Marge's grave.

While shopping for her family in the midst of an Asian flu epidemic, Marge gets arrested for shoplifting bourbon (though the whole thing was unintentional and the situation could have been fixed if Apu let her pay for it as she was clearly intending to pay for it), and her prison time (resulting from being railroaded in court and having Lionel Hutz as her attorney) has an adverse effect on the family and eventually the whole town, when the bake sale proceeds come up short and they have to buy a Jimmy Carter statue for their town instead of an Abraham Lincoln one.
