Episode - 7G10
First Aired - 3/25/1990

While Marge and the kids go out to eat at a seafood restaurant, Bart comes across a private bachelor party where Homer is dancing with a belly dancer known as Princess Kashmir, takes a photo of it, and passes it around the neighborhood. When Marge confronts Homer about the incriminating evidence, she throws him out for a day, then tells him that she will take him back — but only if he takes Bart to see the stripper and show that the dancer is more than just a sex object for horny men.

  • Hypocritical Humor: A father scolds his son for possessing the picture. After sending his son to his room, he looks at the picture again with glee, planning to show his co-workers.
  • Match Cut: This happens when Rev. Lovejoy's secretary shows him the picture she confiscated from one of the choir boys.
    Rev. Lovejoy: This one has strayed from my own flock. His name...
