Recap / The Simpsons S 19 E 6 Little Orphan Millie

Milhouse's reunited parents are missing and presumed dead while Marge hides her eyes from Homer after he admits that he doesn't know what color they are.

Tropes:

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys
  • Bee Afraid: While trying to protect Maggie from a bee, Homer gets his head stuck into a beehive.
  • Emo: Milhouse turns emo to deal with his mourning over his parents.
  • Forgotten Anniversary: Homer tries to look at wedding photos to find out the color of Marge's eyes but the album is locked and the passcode is their anniversary, which he doesn't remember.
  • Informed Attribute: Apparently, Marge has an eye color (Of course, given the fact that the Simpsons characters usually have round eyes with black pupils, Marge's reason for hiding her eyes from Homer and making him feel guilty is irrelevant at best).
  • Instantly Proven Wrong: When Milhouse feels his parents are dead, Marge tries to cheer him up by saying there's always hope, only for a naval officer to appear at the window to say they have called off the search, much to Marge's ire.
  • Kick Them While They're Down: Bart comes up and sprays Milhouse with the garden hose just after he finds out his parents might be dead. The navel men gesture to him about the bad timing.
  • No Sympathy: Homer gets his head stuck into a beehive, falls into a blueberry bush, turning the beehive blue, falls into a green towel getting wrapped like a dress and the only reaction he gets is Marge berating him for impersonating her.
  • Not Helping Your Case: Homer tries to take Milhouse's mind off of his parents being lost at sea, only for everything he keeps offering him is related to the sea.
  • Not Quite Dead: Milhouse's parents.
  • Tempting Fate: When Milhouse is staying with the Simpsons and having fun, if he casually says he doesn't care if his parents ever come back. Then two navel men show up to tell him the bad news. Naturally, Milhouse blames himself for this.
