Homer is diagnosed with narcolepsy — but instead of returning home with his prescription medication — he returns home drunk. He and Marge visit a marriage counselor and have a trial separation, during which Homer begins dating a 20-something.”
Here we go, welcome to season 49. Oh wait, what’s this? Homer has another love interest and his marriage to Marge is in jeopardy, AND they separate?? AAANNNDDD There is a trendy guest star??????
I can see what went down in the writer’s room now:
Writer 1: I have the perfect idea for the season opener. We have Homer and Marge break up again and Homer can meet another woman, and also move out I guess.
Writer 2: I feel like we did this several times before…. Will there be a couple of gay guys or Weird Al again?
Writer 1: Even better. We got Lena Dunham and her friends from that show we don’t watch. That’s kind of like a couple of gay guys and Weird Al, only, you know, gayer.
Writer 2: Sure, whatever. Wait, what show are we writing for again?
Head Writer: Hey, if you ladies are done clucking I need someone to help me finish this ‘autobiography’ of Rupert before he gets back from the puppy and kitten slaughterhouse tomorrow morning.
… That’s probably close. Enjoy the show or don’t, I obviously won’t.
