Recap / The Simpsons S 14 E 9 Strong Arms Of The Ma

After Marge gets mugged by a hobo outside of the Kwik-E-Mart's bathroom, she turns into a recluse afraid to even leave her own basement. Eventually, she becomes bored, and starts turning to weight lifting (from some weights Homer bought at Rainier Wolfcastle's bankruptcy sale) to pass the time. After gaining the courage to go outside and beating up the hobo who mugged her, she becomes a bodybuilder, thanks to her old friend, Ruth Powers, who went to jail, got addicted to bodybuilding and steroids, and became Miss Mexican Mafia.

This is the true 300th episode of the show, even though Fox promoted the 302nd episode, "Barting Over", as the 300th.
