When the Winfields (The Simpsons' neighbors who aren't the Flanderseses) decide to move to Florida to run out the clock, a new family consisting of a divorced mom named Ruth and her teenaged daughter, Laura, move in. While Bart falls for Laura (and gets his heart broken when he discovers that Jimbo Jones is her boyfriend), Homer and Marge (despite having a seafood allergy and being forced to eat the Tic-Tacs in her purse because everything on the menu has seafood in it, including the complimentary bread) go out to eat at Captain [=MacAllister=]'s seafood restaurant "The Frying Dutchman" -- and Homer sues the establishment for not getting his fill at the "All-You-Can-Eat" buffet.
!!This episode contains examples of:
* BigEater: One of the biggest examples in the series even for Homer. Homer eats continuously for literal hours without stopping. He keeps eating well after closing time and up til midnight, not bacause he's full mind you, but because he is dragged out kicking and screaming by the waiters who want to go home. Still not full he drives around looking for another all you can eat fish place, and when he can't find that he makes Marge go fishing with him.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The subplot of Homer suing "The Frying Dutchman" was originally going to be one of these two stories:
** Homer getting in a feud with guest star DonRickles. Don Rickles turned down the opportunity.
** Homer becoming a barber. It was rejected because the writers back then didn't have Homer get a new job every episode and ignore his main job as a safety inspector for the nuclear plant. On top of that, they didn't think it was all that funny.
