Recap: The Simpsons S 9 E 16 Dumbbell Indemnity
Moe falls for a flower vendor named Renee, and commits insurance fraud (with help from Homer) so he can keep the money and the romance coming.


  • Mistaken for Gay: When Moe was trying to get enough courage to tell Renee the truth, she asked if he was gay. When he said he wasn't she asked if he was married and he asked why she said "gay" first.
  • Romance on the Set: Hank Azaria and Helen Hunt were dating at the time this episode was made, marrying in 1999, but ultimately divorcing in 2000.
  • Stop Saying That!: Homer overhears Moe speaking about Hawai'i.
    Moe: Hawai'i here we come! Ananakooli, Makawani, Ana-ona, Nanawula Wa, Hawai'i... ha.
    Homer: (overhearing) Hawai'i? What about Hawai'i? Moe? Who's going to Hawai'i?! Am I going to Hawai'i?
    (Chief Wiggum knocks on Homer's cell bars with a nightstick.)
    Chief Wiggum: Stop saying Hawai'i in there!
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Whatever happened with that water heater explosion at the beginning of the episode?
