Recap / The Simpsons S 19 E 16 Papa Dont Leech

Lurleen Lumpkin returns and stays with The Simpsons (despite that Marge really hates her from the events that happened in "Colonel Homer") so she can revive her dead career and search for her long-lost father.

Tropes:

  • The Bus Came Back: Lurleen Lumpkin returns and stays with The Simpsons (despite the fact Marge still really hates her after "Colonel Homer") so she can revive her dead career and search for her long-lost father.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Marge. After forgiving Lurleen, she threatens her with serious bodily harm if she comes near her husband again.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: When The Dixie Chicks learned of the theft, they joined with Lurleen in beating up Royce with their instruments.
  • Jerkass: Royce not just re-abandon Lurleen again, but also steal her new song "My Daddy's Back," re-wrote the lyrics and gave it to the Dixie Chicks as "America's Back," telling them that he had written the song. This backfire as quoted above.
  • Parental Neglect: Royce abandoned Lurleen when she was four years old. He didn't reappear in her life until thirty years later, when Marge Simpson tracked him down. They had a joyous father-daughter reunion, which inspired Lurleen to write a song called "My Daddy's Back". All too soon, however, Royce reverted to type and abandoned Lurleen again.
  • Plagiarism in Fiction: Royce Lumpkin stole his own daughter's new song.
  • Sequel Episode: To "Colonel Homer".
  • Serial Spouse: Lurleen has been married 5 or 6 times, all to men that look and act just like Homer. At the end of the episode, she falls for yet another man who resembled Homer.
