Go To

After Homer finds a letter and a video revealing that Marge only married Homer because he got her pregnant, Homer moves out (again) and finds himself in Springfield's gayborhood, living with two homosexual roommates.

  • Big Beautiful Man: One of the residents of the gay neighborhood refers to Homer as a bearnote  and growls flirtatiously at him.
  • Blatant Lies: Homer runs into Smithers in the gay neighborhood while walking through the streets. Smithers immediately tries to deny his presence, saying he got lost on his way to the "big monster truck show". His claim isn't helped when a trolley of Smithers' gay associates passes by, prompting them to ask if Homer is the "Mr. Burns he's always talking about".
