Homer attempts to spend more time with Maggie and takes her to Moe’s Tavern. Moe is cleaning up the bar for a date, and finds out he actually has a window, which was previously obscured by layers of grime. Outside the window is a playground, which Homer sees as an opportunity for watching Maggie while spending time at Moe’s. Homer sends Maggie to play with the other babies outside, but instead, they torment her. Marge notices Maggie is uncomfortable when she returns home one day, and becomes worried that Homer is neglecting her.
After watching a commercial about a surveillance camera fixed in the eye of a teddy bear, Marge purchases a spy camera which she attaches to Maggie’s hair band and discovers that Maggie is bullied by a group of gangster babies. Will Homer be “man enough” to face the gangsters?
Meanwhile, Moe’s date, whom he met over the internet, turns out to be a little person named Maya. Moe still loves her, but is worried about what his friends will think. Moe decides to take Maya on a double date with Marge and Homer, neither of whom seem to care that she is small. Homer, seeing Maya’s intelligence and sensitivity, suggests Moe marry her. Moe proposes but cannot resist making jokes about Maya’s height. Insulted, she rejects him. Crushed by grief, Moe consults the advice of Lenny and Carl, who advise him to do something risky to win Maya back.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
Lenny: “If I’ve learned anything from romantic comedies, it’s that you’ve got to make a grand reckless
gesture; the kind that looks like it might blow up in your face.
Moe: “Yeah, but what if it blows up in my face?”
Carl: “With your face, who cares?” [sucks back a beer]
