After returning from convention, Homer’s new behavior starts to get Lisa’s attention, forcing her to investigate.
Tropes of this episode:
- Green Aesop: Lisa and the people who told Homer.
- Mistaken for Terrorist: Homer... though he gets the job done.
- Shout-Out: Homer asks if the cat was near by asking if it’s like Garfield… right into asking if it hates Monday and likes lasagna.
- OOC Is Serious Business: Homer isn’t act like himself. He doesn’t choke Bart, enjoys vegetable, ask for water instead of beer, declines Marge’s offer to have sex, and is kneeling on a prayer mat. This scares Lisa, as she thinks Homer has become a Muslim terrorist, but really, he was hanging out with hippies.
