Recap: The Simpsons S 18 E 15 Rome Old And Juli Eh

Abe and Selma get married after Abe is kicked out of the retirement home due to Homer declaring bankruptcy (unaware that bankruptcy laws have changed). Meanwhile, Bart and Lisa wage war against a delivery company over boxes.

Tropes:

  • House Husband: Initially, Abe wanted Selma to be a House Wife while he worked but his plans depended on him regaining his job at the now defunct PanAm so he tried to become the trope. Well, he tried.
  • May-December Romance: Abe and Selma.
  • Men Can't Keep House: Abe, albeit it's implied that, in his case, it's not because he's a man but because he's senile and out of touch with modern life.
  • Reality Ensues: The result of Homer's attempt to make his car work the Flintstone way.
  • Shout-Out: To cut expenses, Homer tried to make his car work the same way The Flintstones make theirs work.
