The Simpsons: Jaws Wired Shut

Homer gets his jaw injured (after running into Drederick Tatum's statue in the park) and has it wired shut. While recouperating, Homer becomes a better listener and a more compassionate person, which makes Marge bored once Homer's jaw is healed and he doesn't go back to being crazy and obnoxious.

Episode Notes
Chalkboard: None

Couch: The living room is black and while (like in the couch gag for "Bart's Comet"). Homer, dressed as Charlie Chaplin’s The Tramp character, waddles to the couch and twitches his nose. When Tramp Homer sits down, the rest of the family, dressed as silent movie characters, join him.

Episode Quotes
Moe: Ah, you must be here for the, uh, Duff Trivia Challenge.
Duffman: That's right, local distributor! One of you could win a lifetime's supply of Duff! Okay, chug monkeys! What beverage, brewed since ancient times, is made from hops and grains?
Lenny: How about "Ancient Hop Grain Juice"?
(Homer realizes the answer and incoherently tries to say "Beer, beer, beer!")
Moe: Wait, wait, wait! Homer's trying to make a guess.
Homer: (Frantically) Brr, brr, brr!
(Homer turns the beer tap on and points at it.)
Moe: What are you doing? You're gettin' some kind of booze all over me.
(Homer cries)
Duffman: (Blows air horn) Time's up, the answer is... Beer! Ooh, duff luck!
Carl: I never would have figured that out.
Lenny: That's the kinda thing you just gotta know.
(Homer cries some more)

(More at the movie theater. A word scramble game appears on the movie screen with a silhouette and the words MOT HANKS.)
Lisa: These are so easy. It's obviously Tom Hanks.
(The answer appears on the movie screen: OTM SHANK)
Lisa: Who?
Apu: Otm Shank. He is India's answer to Brian Dennehy.

(At the movie theater.)
Homer: (Muttering under his breath) So many previews, so many previews, so many previews--
Announcer: And now, our feature presentation.
(Homer gasps)
Announcer: If that's a phrase you like to hear, then you'll love Movie Call!
(Homer screams)

Bart: Hey, Dad, I'm going to make a human yo-yo. If you object, clearly say, "No."
(Homer mumbles "No.")
Bart: No objections, eh? That's great.
(While Homer mumbles angrily, Bart walks over to Milhouse, who is wearing padding and a helmet.)
Bart: Milhouse, are you ready to imitate that "Jackass" show?
Milhouse: All those disclaimers make me want to do it more!
