"I'm Just a Girl Who Can't Say D'oh" is the 20th episode of the thirtieth season of the American animated sitcom The Simpsons, and the 659th episode overall. It aired in the United States on Fox.

Plot[edit]

A disgruntled cast and crew expel short-tempered perfectionist theater director Llewellyn Sinclair from their production of Oklahoma!.[2] Marge Simpson steps up to helm a different show production written by Lisa Simpson about Springfield’s founder Jebediah Springfield.[3] Her show is a parody of Hamilton: An American Musical, a sung-and-rapped through musical about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.[4] Lisa’s musical is called Bloody, Bloody Jebediah with Sideshow Mel in the title role. Krusty will be showing it on live tv, recording the open-air production. Sideshow Mel later drops out of the show so Marge tries to recast the part, finding Professor Frink (Josh Groban) has a stunning singing voice. However it’s revealed that rain is forecast for the live performance.

Meanwhile, Homer Simpson notices a popular baby class taking place and joins with Maggie Simpson. His confusion about the popularity is answered when he sees Chloe, the sexy supervisor running the "Daddy and Me" baby class.

Bloody, Bloody Jebediah airs live and starts off successfully, however during a commercial break it starts pouring rain. Jebediah’s bear (John Lithgow) starts to sink into a puddle so Lisa quickly rewrites the ending to the satisfaction of the audience. The production is nominated for ten awards but fails to win. But Marge wins a special award for best newcomer.

Reception[edit]

Dennis Perkins from The A.V. Club gave the episode a C- stating, "Unfortunately, the resulting episode, 'I'm Just A Girl Who Can’t Say D'oh' is a listless, carelessly plotted outing, where character and narrative logic give way to plodding storytelling, a serious lack of jokes, and one of the least interesting (and yet vaguely irritating) B-plots in recent memory."[5]

"I'm Just a Girl Who Can't Say D'oh" scored a 0.7 rating with a 3 share and was watched by 1.61 million people.[6]
