Gerald Samson (better known as "Baby Gerald" or "The Unibrow Baby") is Maggie's arch-nemesis.

Biography[edit]

Lisa has referred to Baby Gerald as Maggie’s rival.[1] Gerald is distinguished by his unibrow, being one of the few characters on the show to have eyebrows. On a few occasions, Gerald has been shown being pushed in a stroller by his mother outside the Simpsons’ house, with the two babies glaring at each other, the camera focusing on their narrowed stares. He often wields a mallet. He is the first baby to show any interest in Maggie, either positively or negatively, as other babies have nothing to do with her, which is why she is always seen playing alone or with her siblings.

Gerald's antipathy towards Maggie may stem from an unfortunate circumstance on the day they were both born in the same hospital and the last diaper was given to wrap Maggie. Gerald was wrapped in a piece of newspaper, which left him with a skin rash from which he is still suffering. Gerald was once rescued from an unspecified disaster by Bart's mail order “wonder dog” Laddie.[2] Both dog and baby were participants in a ceremony presided over by Mayor Quimby, during which the mayor inquired, "Baby Gerald, we can't help but wonder what mischief you'll get into next".

When Marge started a daycare center, Gerald was one of the babies for whom she was caring. During the day, Gerald blamed Maggie for everything he had done, including spilling Maggie's milk and breaking a lamp. As Marge was rebuking Maggie, Gerald offered to help with cleaning the mess and got a special reward. All this led Maggie to run away from home.

Gerald was Maggie's antagonist in The Longest Daycare, set at the Ayn Rand School for Tots, where they apparently first met. Both babies were deemed to be of only average intelligence and wind up in the same depressing and unattended borstal, apart from the privileged rooms set aside for the high-achieving babies. Gerald smashes several butterflies with his mallet and followed Maggie who rescued a caterpillar. She outsmarts him, however, and, on the ride home, after leaving with her mother, she releases a newly-developed beautiful blue butterfly through the window of the car.

Maggie and Gerald also did battle during the Springfield St. Patrick's Day riot, sparked by the town's ban on alcohol after Bart is spotted under the influence.

Future[edit]

At some point he and his childhood nemesis Maggie fall in love and eventually marry. It is not known if the marriage lasts as she finds his constant interruptions annoying.[3] She gives birth to a daughter (Maggie Jr.) who, as a toddler, looks exactly the same as Maggie does now, but it is unclear who the father is.[4]
