Worried that he may be slow, Homer gets a job as an adult education teacher at the Learning Annex, teaching losers in love how to keep their relationships together, but it goes awry when he shares intimate details of his relationship with Marge to keep his class interested.
!!This episode contains examples of:
* AchievementsInIgnorance: The episode begins with Homer getting a straight flush in poker while thinking he had a lousy hand the whole time.
* BaitAndSwitch: When Marge is driving down the street and imagining hearing fond memories of his voice amongst her sadness, we learn it's actually Homer himself in the backseat of her car saying them with a toilet paper roll. She then promptly throws him out the car.
* BastardlySpeech: Parodied when Homer tries to justify telling Marge's secrets to the marriage class he's teaching. (Unsurprisingly, unlike with the other examples here, she doesn't fall for his BS.) And of course, being Homer, it's more a [[SpeaksInShoutOuts collection of quotes from movies he saw]].
-->''"Look, Marge, you don't know what it's like. I'm the one out there every day putting his ass on the line. [[Film/AndJusticeForAll And I'm not out of order! You're out of order! The whole freakin' system is out of order!]] [[Film/AFewGoodMen You want the truth? You want the truth? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!]] [[Film/{{Patton}} 'Cause when you reach your hand into a pile of goo that was your best friend's face, you'll know what to do!]] [[Film/{{Chinatown}} Forget it, Marge! It's Chinatown!]]"''
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Marge gets angry enough to scare Homer when she finds out what he's done.
* BrokenAesop: Invoked in the commentary, how Marge and Homer solve their problem isn't healthy, and it isn't meant to be.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Homer is oblivious to Moe's reasons for being in his house. He nonchalantly says hi to a terrified Moe when he returns to try and urge Marge to leave him.
* DanceBattler: Moe teaches "Funk Dancing For Self-Defense" at the Learning Annex.
* DelayedReaction: By the time Homer realizes his poker buddies insulted him by calling him "a little slow," the game's over, it's the middle of the night, and Lenny is wondering what he's still doing in his house.
* DescriptionCut: Homer sees Reverend Lovejoy approaching the house, and is confident the man will implore Marge to forgive him, "Or his god will punish him". Cut to Lovejoy telling Marge to divorce Homer.
* FanDisservice: Patty and Selma, once more. This time, they're teaching a class on how to attract a man. Selma reminds anyone who takes it there are no refunds.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Marge's complaints about Homer telling people about their private affairs seems somewhat skewed, since multiple episodes have her lament over his antics in public.
* IHaveThisFriend: Homer tries to pass a detail about himself and Marge as something about a friend and the friend's wife. Not only he comes up with obviously fake names like "X" and "Y" but he ruins it by having X call Y "Marge" and himself "Homer J. Simpson".
* LetNoCrisisGoToWaste: Moe tries to make a move on Marge while Homer is gone.
* ManChild: Homer apparently double-dared Bart to steal some mail and throw it down the drain.
* NoodleIncident: Homer contemplates taking another bath in malt liquor.
* OhCrap: Moe, when Homer ([[ComicallyMissingThePoint doesn't quite]]) catch him trying to woo Marge.
* ParentingTheHusband: Referenced:
-->'''Homer''': Wait, Marge, that's it. That's the one thing ''I'' can give you that no one else can: complete and utter dependence!\\
'''Marge''': Homer, that's not a ''good'' thing.
* RuleOfSymbolism: Marge, out in the car, sees several stores that just happen to remind her of Homer, like ''Broken Home Foundations''.
* SanitySlippage: After two days away from Marge, Homer goes completely mad and tries to create a plant-based replacement of Marge.
* SpecialGuest: Creator/PhilHartman as Lionel Hutz
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: Not knowing what to teach his students, Homer started eating an orange and compared it to marriage. Not falling for that, Groundskeeper Willie commented that, if he wanted to see somebody eating an orange, he'd have enrolled at the orange-eating class. Cut to said class, where Hans Moleman was supposed to teach other old people how to eat oranges. He was instead comparing it to marriage.
* TotallyRadical: Moe does this where he's teaching self defense through dance:
-->OK, here's the 411, folks: Say some gangsta is dissin' your fly girl...
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After Marge kicks Homer out of the house, it's unknown what become of his class.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Marge dyes it blue. And it seems possible to have natural blue hair since people were surprised when Homer brought up the fact.
