Recap: The Simpsons S 14 E 20 Brake My Wife Please


  • Continuity Nod: At the marriage counselor, Apu and Manjula are walking out after sorting out their problems from "The Sweetest Apu" (Well, sort of).
  • Mood Whiplash: Home goes from singing a cheerful song about walking to getting hit by Marge's car.
    • An in-universe example happens when Homer is at the video store and looks at screens showing a comedy about a monkey as a newspaper editor and a dramatic Lifetime movie.
  • Never Trust a Trailer: The TV spot for this episode takes Homer and Marge's argument out of context.
    Marge: I hate you!
    Homer: It's like you hate me, your own husband, whom you're contractually obligated to like.
    • And in the actual episode...
    Homer: It's like you hate me, your own husband.
    Marge: That's ridiculous. I don't like you. I mean hate you. Hate you. Hate you! I hate you!
  • Theres No Kill Like Overkill: When Homer's licence is revoked, Judge Harm cuts it in half with a mini-guillotine, shreds the halves, feeds it to her dogs and tells one of the guards to burn their poop.
