- "When Marge gets fed up with the thankless duty of chauffeuring her kids around, she begins working as a driver for a transportation app service. Meanwhile, Homer bankrupts Moe when he watches over the bar for one night, which forces Moe to take a temporary job as a janitor at the nuclear plant."
Homer is awakened by Marge to drive the children to all their activities. In order to avoid to the task, Homer escapes to Moe's tavern to pretend he is too drunk to drive. Because of this, Marge is forced to drive the kids to their activities herself.
In the bar, Moe tells Homer, Lenny, and Carl that he received tickets from Sideshow Mel to a Laney Fontaine theater show. The guys encourage Moe to go, though he is worried about the safety of the bar while he is gone. To this, Homer agrees to act as bartender in Moe's place for the night. Homer, Lenny and Carl devise a plan to get money for the bar by having a ladies' night there, as it will attract men to buy beer. However, the scheme backfires as no man enters the bar, and to make matters worse, the women turn the bar upside down. After the show, Moe returns with Laney Fontaine to the bar where it is already destroyed. Laney leaves Moe and the guys apologize to Moe by offering him a job at the Nuclear Power Plant. Mr. Burns offers Moe a job as the janitor, though soon promotes him to supervisor of Sector 7G after he prevents the NRC from trying to shut down the Power Plant. Moe soon angers Homer and the guys when he acts like a "jerk" to them (doing his job), leading the three to disown him as their friend.
Meanwhile, after completing the task of driving the children to their activities, Marge comes across an employee, working for a social media transportation app, who encourages her to join. Marge quickly agrees (hoping to use the earnings to buy an ice maker for the kitchen fridge), though also quickly acquires boredom from driving Springfield residents (such as Nelson, Groundskeeper Willie, Lenny, Dr. Nick, Gil, etc.). She also manages to attract hatred from taxi drivers. Whilst driving Moe to his tavern, Marge tells him to quit his job and she will quit hers. Once they arrive at the bar, the taxi drivers attempt to kill Marge only to be stopped by Moe who threatens to kill them all with the shotgun he keeps behind the bar.
Tress MacNeille was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance in the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards for voicing Laney Fontaine, Shauna and Mrs. Muntz in this episode, but he lost to Hank Azaria for "The Princess Guide".
