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:

* TheBusCameBack: 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.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Marge. After forgiving Lurleen, she threatens her with serious bodily harm if she comes near her husband again.
-->'''Marge''': If you ever come near Homer again, I'll strangle you with your own hair extensions!
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: 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.
* ParentalNeglect: 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.
* PlagiarismInFiction: Royce Lumpkin stole his own daughter's new song.
* SequelEpisode: To "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS3E20ColonelHomer Colonel Homer]]".
* SerialSpouse: Lurleen has been married 5 or 6 times, all to [[ReplacementGoldfish men that look and act]] [[HasAType just like Homer]]. At the end of the episode, she falls for yet another man who resembled Homer.
* ShoutOut:
** Lisa's line in "Daddy's Back" was "Keep it down, I'm reading ''Literature/HarryPotter''."
** Also, when receiving a FullNameThreat, Royce Lumpkin was called "Royce ''[[Series/TheDukesOfHazzard Boss Hogg]]'' Lumpkin". Lurleen once starred a clip with [[Franchise/TheMuppets Kermit and Miss Piggy]].
** The opening of the episode where Homer kills Grampa is a homage to Christopher Moltisanti's death in Series/TheSopranos.
