Chronology[edit]

You do realise the stuff you argue about such as Marge's date of birth and shoe size don't matter as the Simpsons chronology is always changing!--RandomEnigma (talk) 20:56, 20 August 2008 (UTC)Seán Travers

Couldn't agree more! Ctjf83Talk 00:18, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

The section of 'Voice' doesn't have the technique Kavner uses to employ Marge and her family's unique voice... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.83.177.183 (talk) 09:37, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Is Bouvier intended to be a play on words?[edit]

I came to the Marge Bouvier Simpson article at least half expecting to learn that her maiden name was a play on words, not uncommon in the series (e.g. "Duff" Beer, Mrs. "Crabapple") but finding no such comment proceeded to my French dictionary, which told me a bouvier is a herdsman. If anyone knows that reference to be intentional it would be a useful addition to the article. 71.119.63.57 (talk) 04:59, 5 January 2009 (UTC)John A.

I always imagined it was a reference to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (nee Jacqueline Bouvier). Format (talk) 19:48, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
It was mentioned in the episode Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words when Marge and Lisa are talking about her madden name that she shares it with Jackie Kennedy, so it is more than likely a reference. I have also just watched the episode The Color Yellow, and at the end of the episode she mentions her last name is French. I thought it is worth mentioning.

Occupations[edit]

In the role in The Simpsons category, it lists all of her past jobs- except for Bodybulding (Strong Arms Of The Ma). Why didn't they list that one inpraticular? Bodybulding is a notable job and therfore should have been listed.--89.240.247.96 (talk) 16:24, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Marge's hair color.[edit]

In "Secrets of a Successful Marriage" (season five, 1994), Homer reveals to his marriage counseling class what shade of blue dye Marge typically purchases, implying that her natural hair color is not blue. This should be mentioned in the article somewhere. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.224.64.45 (talk) 23:33, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Marge is a rapist.[edit]

In the episode, "The Strong Arms of the Ma", Marge raped Homer. Someone want to add this in? I'd try to, but deletionist scum (censors are amongst the lowest of humanity) mean I rarely even bother trying to add anything anymore (they're also why I will NEVER donate, hoping Wikipedia dies and is replaced by a true repository of mankind's data).

If one is of sound mind and commits a forceful rape, one is definitely a rapist. Most justice systems hold that being on steroids doesn't excuse your criminal actions. Therefor, Marge Simpson is a rapist.

It is most certainly noteworthy as by far the worst crime (iirc) committed by one of the main Simpson family against another (outside of the Halloween episode where they'd kept a Bart's brother chained in the attic for a decade). It is also notable for being one of only two depicted/heavily-implied-as-occurring-right-now rapes in the Simpsons (iirc), the victim of the other scene also being Homer, this time the aggressor is a Panda.

The scene: Marge is forcefully pinning Homer down. Marge: "Let's do it" Homer: "Uh listen my bulky flower, I - I have an early day tomorrow" Marge: "I wasn't asking" Home is visibly distressed and closes his eyes to brace for what is coming. Cut to the next morning. Homer is revealed to be very sore.
