The Simpsons: The Blue and the Gray

After spending another Valentine’s Day alone, Moe attends a seminar led by Dr. Kissingher in the hopes of gaining more confidence with women. Moe takes the doctor’s advice and asks Homer to be his wingman, but Moe becomes distraught when women are drawn to Homer as well.

Meanwhile, Marge discovers her first gray hairs and surprises both her family and the neighborhood by going completely gray and sporting a brand new mature ‘do, but Bart is not humored when the neighborhood kids tease him about Marge’s look.
Later, Marge confronts Homer when she learns that he is becoming increasingly popular with the young ladies, but Homer helps Marge realize that he only has eyes for her and proves that love is still in the Springfield air.

Episode Notes
Coach Gag:

The Simpsons are seen running for the couch but with a loud 'snap' Homer collapses, grabbing his leg & screams in pain.
Panning to the left, we see Lenny, Carl, Moe & Barney sitting on a bench in blue warm up gear with Burns as their coach and motions to Barney to 'get in there'.
Barney gets up, strips of the blue sweats and runs over and sits next to Marge while Homer is taken away on a stretcher while giving Barney the thumbs up.

Chalk Board Gag:

I will not make fun of Cupid's dink

Episode Goofs
Marge is surprised when she finds a grey hair, however Homer says in the Season 5 episode, Secrets of a Successful Marriage, Marge has been grey as a mule since she was 17.

It seems they attempt to explain Marge's apparent lack of knowledge of her own grey hair by saying the toxic fumes of the dye wipes out any memory of her dye jobs but in the same episode, Secrets of a Successful Marriage, she's fully aware she dyes her hair.

Cultural References
This episode's title is an adaptation of 'The Blue and the Grey', the 1982 Civil War mini-series or a possibly a direct allusion to the title of the poem, 'The Blue and the Gray' by Francis Miles Finch
