After discovering Marge's diploma, Homer recounts the time he gave up his dreams of being a musician just to put Marge through college — until Marge breaks Homer's heart and falls for her professor.
- Continuity Snarl: Besides Marge's personality (which a small, but vocal minority have cited as the reason they despise this episode), the main problem with this episode is the careless retconning of Homer and Marge being young and childless in the 1990s and the forced jokes about 1990s pop culture.
- Faux Yay: When Moe got caught trying to steal a patron's wristwatch, he claimed he was trying to flirt. To Moe's horror, his "feelings" were reciprocated.
- Jerkass Marge's college professor, Stefane August. He manipulates Marge into dumping Homer for him and acts like he's a revolutionary feminist, but really he's just a jerk who would sleep with one of his students.
- The Nineties
- Ungrateful Bitch: Marge was at her worst in this episode, what with ditching Homer for her professor when Homer was paying for her tuition by working a job he hated.
