This is one of those Simpsons episodes that feels like it went by really fast. It's almost a shame that a lot of the focus was on Marge, because I think they could have gotten more mileage out of C. Carl Carlson's rise to power and loyal lackey Homer Simpson. Likewise, the resolution of the near-affair between Marge and Ned seemed to come and go so quickly.
Nope, you weren't. I sang it to my wife each time Barry was on screen. Within 30 minutes, she told me to STFU. I couldn't help myself and did it again. I was then banished to the basement for the rest of the show. It was totally worth it.
