| Laney Fontaine
| Character Information
Laney Fontaine is a Broadway performer.
Moe watched her perform comedy, dance, sing, and act at the Springfield Playhouse after getting free tickets from a Moe's Tavern patron. After performing and eyeing Moe, she was seen in the back of a car making out with Moe who took her back to his bar. However, the bar was in ruins and she soon left.
In a coma dream that Bart had, Fontaine was on the wall of Ned Flanders' dead wives.
It seems that Laney and Moe had been in a relationship even after she left the bar. However, at some point they broke up. Laney then made a Broadway play where she broke up with Moe and tore him apart. She won a Tony Award for this.
Behind the Laughter
Laney Fontaine's name is a reference to the famed acting couple Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne (Lunt & Fontanne), although she resembles American actress and singer Elaine Stritch (1925–2014) in her demeanor and speech.
