Laura Powers lives next door to the Simpsons and is the only child of single-parent divorceé Ruth Powers.


Laura and her mother Ruth moved into the house next door when the Winfields moved out. Marge and Ruth quickly became friends; so did Laura and Bart. After Laura made Bart faint in the basement of her new house, he developed a crush on her. Bart was later heartbroken when he found out that she was in love with Jimbo Jones. When Bart prank called Moe's Tavern, Laura thought that Jimbo had prank called the area, and she decided to break up with him. She then stated that she would date Bart if he were a little older: "You know, if you were only old enough to grow a bad teenage moustache, I'd go out with you in a second." She then kissed him.[1]

Near the end of the Trappuccino incident, Laura was seen throwing rocks at Homer when he returned to Springfield.[2]

Laura and her mother seemed to have moved to Detroit after Springfield fell victim to the Financial Crisis.[citation needed] Their house is later occupied by a disguised Sideshow Bob.[3] The Powers later moved in again, as in a neighborhood meeting at the Simpson house, Ruth told Marge she hasn't "stopped by to say hello in 25 years, and I live next door".[4]


Laura has a tomboyish, laid-back and quick witted charming personality. While outgoing and upbeat, she also displays a great deal of etiquette and manners, from which she owes to a strict and rigorous childhood. Her likes include rebellious quasi-thugs, poking dead bodies with a stick, and messing with peoples' minds. Her favorite restaurant is Two Guys from Kabul. Her biggest thrill is riding the Shriek-o-lator at Duff Gardens. Her dislikes include authority and disco. Her extracurricular activities include babysitting, telling fortunes, and dance instructing. Her secret shame, according to "The Bart Book" and her skybox card, is that she enjoys wearing dresses, despite being a tomboy.

Her foreign travels have forced her to adapt quickly to any situation. She can make herself understood in eight different languages but makes friends from "the universal language of the wedgie." Her claim to fame, apparently, is that she can spit farther than any boy.[5]


"Laura Powers is a tough-talkin', good-lookin' Army brat who can turn a young rebel's heart to mush in the time it takes to give you a Hertz Donut. She speaks politely to adults when necessary, teaches cats to waltz, and makes even belches seem alluring. After just one look and a couple of Wet Willies, Bart makes the ultimate sacrifice for her - he takes a bath."[6]
