- ―Homer Simpson
"Colonel Homer" is the twentieth episode of Season 3. It aired on March 26, 1992. Matt Groening wrote the episode and Mark Kirkland directed. Beverly D'Angelo guest stars as Lurleen Lumpkin.
After a particularly bad movie experience, Homer drives to a bar where he discovers a singer named Lurleen Lumpkin. Homer becomes her manager (calling himself "Colonel Homer") and helps her launch her musical career. Lurleen's success causes problems in the Simpson household, however, when Homer's manager role causes him to spend large amounts of time away from home and when Marge realizes that Lurleen is attracted to Homer.
Homer and Marge go see a movie but Homer doesn't shut up in the theater. He ends up giving the film away and the audience boos him. Marge yells at him, leaving him embarrassed. Homer drives off to a country bar to think about what happened when he meets a waitress named Lurleen Lumpkin who sings a song that he falls in love with. Homer returns home but can't get her song out of his head. He drives back and decides to get the song recorded. It is given to the local radio station and the song is an instant success. Homer becomes Lurleen's manager, much to Marge's objection. Lurleen wants more from Homer than him being her manager, but Homer cares for his wife and kids and decides he made the wrong choice.
