Recap: The Simpsons S 3 E 20 Colonel Homer
After an embarrassing night at the movies with Marge, Homer gets the chance to manage an aspiring country music singer, Lurleen Lumpkin, but has to fight off her seductive charms and his own feelings for her to stay true to Margenote .

This episode contains examples of:

  • Bar Brawl
    Man 1: Hey you! Let's fight!
    Man 2: Them's fightin' words!
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Marge the entire episode. Luckily for her Homer didn't feel the same about Lurleen.
  • Intercourse with You: Lurleen's song "Bunk With Me Tonight"
  • Oblivious to Love: Homer fails to notice that Lurleen is in love with him, even when she invites him to her trailer, and sings the highly suggestive song "Bunk with me Tonight" for him (according to DVD commentary, everyone thought Homer was being a jerkass in this episode, but Groening explains that Homer was just trying to help Lurleen out because he liked her songs and wanted to make money for his family — until he sees her true intentions):
    Homer: Oh, that's hot. There isn't a man alive who wouldn't get turned on by that. (stands up) Well, goodbye!
  • Shout-Out:
    • Coal Miner's Daughter: Many of the elements of the 1980 film, starring Sissy Spacek and Tommy Lee Jones and showing Loretta Lynn's real-life rise to stardom, are present.
    • Hee Haw: The TV show "Ya-Hoo," with its corny, countrified characters and country music.
