When Troy [=McClure=] ([[RunningGag you may remember him from such Simpsons episodes as "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" and "Lisa the Vegetarian"!]]) is sentenced to renew his driver's license after getting pulled over for erratic driving, he meets Selma (who is still looking for a man so she can have a family and not die alone) and decides to marry her to revive his moribund movie career (which fizzled out due to bad project choices and the urban legend that he is sexually attracted to fish, which got him in trouble at the Springfield Aquarium), which Selma has no problem with -- until Troy's agent wants Troy and Selma to have a baby.

* HeReallyCanAct: His appearance in ''Stop The Planet Of The Apes, I Want To Get Off!'' shows that Troy is in fact a legitimately talented actor. The reason he's considered washed-up has more to do with his poor choices of roles, his addictions, and (obviously) the fish thing.

* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: PlayedForDrama -- Troy's agent wants Troy and Selma to have a baby, but Troy doesn't know the first thing about sex with a real woman and Selma doesn't want to bring a child into a sham marriage.
** Troy then suggests hiring a child actor to be in on it, but by then, Selma's just tired of the illusion.

* PetTheDog: When Selma is reprimanded for smoking in a fancy restaurant, Troy lights up a cigar so she won't feel embarrased. This was before the whole thing turned to publicity.
