"Mobile Homer" is the thirteenth episode of season 16 of The Simpsons and the three-hundred and forty-eighth episode overall. It originally aired on March 20, 2005. The episode was written by Tim Long and directed by Raymond S. Persi.


Marge takes the kids on a random and pointless Sunday drive but Homer gets out of it by cleaning the garage. He does little but try to kill spiders, which get on his face. Homer sprays himself with pesticide and trips on Bart's skateboard and falls on the ground under the garage door. He sees a spider and tosses a TV guide magazine at it, but the magazine hits the garage door button and closes the door on his neck and continues trying to close. When Marge and the kids get home, Homer is dead. Bart tells Lisa to open up the envelope he gave her. Lisa opens up an envelope and pulls out a drawing of Homer crushed under the garage door with "THIS IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN" written under him. Lisa and Bart perform CPR and revive him. Marge then declares life insurance but due to his fitness, constant accidents and multiple physical ailments Homer is declared uninsurable. Marge then watches a movie (which claims to be based on a true story) on TV known as "From Homemaker to Homeless" about a rich housewife who becomes poor, insane, and ugly after her husband dies of a stroke and she has no life insurance. Marge then gets a nest egg to pay for Homer's insurance and buys imitation brands of cereal, soup, coffee, forces Bart and Lisa to wear church charity clothing to school, and has Homer bring his own drinks to Moe's Tavern. Homer is then kicked out for bringing an outside drink and decides since the nest egg is making his life miserable he should purchase something cool. Homer then buys a fully loaded RV which he has the kids living in as well.

Homer then goes to a gas station where he meets a couple, named after and similar to the two lead characters (George and Martha) in Edward Albee's play, Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolf. He invites them and their friends to his backyard. However, they are getting on Marge's nerves and Homer loses a bunch of valuable friends after Marge cuts out the power. Marge and Homer then get into a fight and Bart and Lisa have no choice to take the RV back to the dealership.

Marge and Homer then follow Bart and Lisa to the dealership in the car, with Marge driving Homer's pink car. The bad thing is though Bart and Lisa miss the dealership and end up on the freeway and the map for the dealership is The Flintstones Fun Map which has a note saying "Dino short for dinosaur? Remember to Ask Jeeves.". They soon get into more trouble when they end up on a Turkish import ship and are about to be taken to Kahramanmaras, southern Turkey. Marge however gets them to stop by giving them the 300 cans she bought (although she wasn't willing to give them a cornerstone if they asked after the captain said "it's a shame that [Marge] dressed like a Lebanese Prostitute). The family then has dinner on the Turkish import ship, and Homer vows to return the RV the first thing in the morning while lifting it up via a crane. He then carefully places the RV on a dock, but the dock breaks and causes it to fall in the water, much to Homer's annoyance, while Cowboy Bob blabbers on about his victory. Surprisingly, Marge took this very well, although the Turkish crew revealed to Homer that they slipped some hashish in her dinner to loosen her up.
