Recap / The Simpsons S 23 E 20 The Spy Who Learned Me

Following a disastrous date and a head injury at work, Homer begins seeing a suave superspy (voiced by Bryan Cranston) who gives him advice on how to be Marge's dream man. Meanwhile, Bart stuffs Nelson full of Krusty Burger's nutritionally dubious food to weaken him and stop his bullying forever.

Tropes featured:

  • Bond One-Liner: Homer shouts these at the screen during a Stradivarius Cain movie, much to Marge's annoyance. (Lenny and Carl, however, cheer him on.)
  • Eat Brain for Memories:
    Burns: Oh pish, when I was in Africa I had my skull cracked open by cannibals and I'm still kicking.
    Smithers: Sir, that was your partner, you betrayed him to the cannibals.
    Burns: Oh right, I have his memories because I ate his brain.
  • Imaginary Friend: Stradivarius Cane is Homer's. And Officer Lou is Chief Wiggum's.
