The Simpsons | Episode Guide | Season Seven
Mother Simpson

Homer finds death is but a door.

Episode 3F06
Written by Richard Appel
Directed by David Silverman
Also starring: Pamela Hayden, Maggie Roswell
Special guest voices: Glenn Close (as Grandma Simpson), Harry Morgan (as Bill)

Premise: Homer fakes his own death to avoid work. At his graveside he meets a woman who claims to be his mother - a woman who's been hiding from Mr Burns since she attempted to destroy his experimental germ warfare plant in the sixties.

Features: Mr Burns, Smithers, Carl, Lenny, Flanders, Rev. Lovejoy, Maud Flanders, Helen Lovejoy, Patty and Selma, Hans Moleman, Grampa, Chief Wiggum, Kent Brockman, Spotty Boy.

Couch: The Simpsons rush in - and get cleared by a skittle-clearing thing.

Homage: Harry Morgan reprises his role from the crime TV show Dragnet. Maggie dances to the theme of Rowan & Martin 's Laugh-In, and we hear Sunshine Of Your Love by Cream and All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix in reference to Grandma Simpson's sixties rebellion.

Notes for the Uneducated: Steal This Book was written by sixties activist Abbie Hoffman.

Notes: In which we discover where Lisa got her brains and determination to fight social and political injustices, how Homer developed an inferiority complex, and that Smithers is a big fan of Swedish popsters Abba. Gag-packed, and very touching.
