Recap: The Simpsons S 11 E 10 Little Big Mom
Marge breaks her leg at a ski resort, forcing Lisa to try to take care of Homer and Bart.


  • Irony: Marge was the only one who refused to go outdoors while at the ski resort and she was the only Simpson to break a leg.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Lisa when she discovers Homer and Bart have gotten sent to a leprosy treatment facility by the Flanderses.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders: Trope Namer.
  • Only Sane Girl: Lisa.
  • Third-Person Person: Disco Stu's habit backfires while hitting on Marge.
    Disco Stu: Disco Stu wants you to be comfortable while he does his thang.
    Marge: Who's Disco Stu?
  • Took a Level in Jerkass and Artistic License - Biology: Lisa using green paint and oatmeal to simulate leprosy scars (even though the skin-rotting lesions on a leper would actually be red and brown). Granted, Homer and Bart were being obnoxious, but that's a bit harsh.
    • Shout-Out: Lisa quotes "Excellent" like Homer's boss, Burns.
  • Trash of the Titans: The Simpson house is, once again, trashed while Marge is away (see also: "Homer Alone"note , "Marge in Chains," "$pringfield (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling)," and "Bart After Dark").
