Recap: The Simpsons S 20 E 20 Four Great Women And A Manicure
While at a nail salon, Marge and Lisa argue over whether or not a woman can be smart, beautiful, and powerful all at once, which leads to yet another Simpsons anthology show, featuring four stories of women trying to survive in a man's world: Aunt Selma defending England as Queen Elizabeth I, Lisa in a non-copyright-infringing retelling of Disney's Snow White, Marge pushing Homer to be a great Shakespearean actor in a modern-day version of Macbeth, and Maggie fighting against conformity in a parody of Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead.


  • Off with His Head!: One of Elizabeth I's suitors was Ralph Wiggum, who shouted "Off with my head!"
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: While singing, the dwarves claimed that song wasn't like any the viewers heard before.
  • You Wanna Get Sued?: The last time the dwarves were heard singing a parody of the song sung by the Dwarves in Disney's Show White, they claimed they'd "claim fair use" "if Disney sues".
