"Brake My Wife, Please" is the twentieth episode of The Simpsons' fourteenth season. It originally aired on the Fox network on May 11, 2003.


Homer's driver's license is revoked after an accident caused by his recklessness, forcing Marge to do all the driving. Homer is forced to walk everywhere, and despite being bitter at first, he begins to enjoy his new method of transportation.

As Homer begins to enjoy walking, Marge begins finding her duty of driving everyone places increasingly stressful. One day, as Homer walks with other Springfieldians, Marge accidentally runs him over with her car.

As Homer is now completely reliant on Marge to care for him, their relationship suffers and they see a marriage counselor. As Marge leaves in sadness, the counselor advises Homer to perform one completely unselfish gesture to win Marge back. Homer invites all the people of Springfield to the Simpson house for a backyard barbecue in Marge's honor.

Marge, returning in a foul mood after driving, walks to the backyard and is welcomed by everyone. After the barbecue, Marge tells Homer that she loves him. Homer and the other guests toast her, before Homer turns on the sprinklers once dinner is over to get everyone to clear out.
