| Character Information
Dr. Tad Winslow is a character in It Never Ends, formerly played by another actor before Moe Szyslak took over the role.
Moe sought the role of Dr. Tad Winslow when he was younger, but was rejected as he was too ugly. Years later, when Moe got plastic surgery to make him handsome, he went to get revenge on Helen Morehouse for rejecting him. When Moe arrived, Morehouse was arguing with Tad Winslow's actor because he wanted a pay rise. After seeing Moe's new face, Morehouse made Moe the new Tad Winslow, firing his original actor.
Moe took to the role and quickly became a hit with the ladies. One day, future plotlines were delivered to Moe and he signed for them. After reading through the plotlines, Moe found out that Tad Winslow was to be killed off. After finding this out, Moe plotted with Homer to reveal all the future plotlines from the show. After this happened, Moe was fired from his role and he and Homer were thrown off the set.
The original Tad Winslow was seen on TV when Grady and Homer were flicking through channels with Grady telling Homer that the person who played Winslow was gay.
In one episode, Tad Winslow was in bed with Cleo. Tad told Cleo that their relationship could never work because he was a doctor and she was a 5,000 year old mummy who he brought back to life. Cleo then told Tad that she loved him and wanted to burn all the cities on Earth with him. Tad then told Cleo that their relationship was against hospital regulations and Clive Dancer was waiting for him to slip up.
Another episode that Moe and Homer were rehearsing had Tad arguing with Cleo. Cleo made a fool of Tad at a club and she told Tad that he didn't love her, he just loved his ear, nose and throat pavilion. Tad then told Cleo that he dedicated his life to diseases of head holes but the one hole he couldn't fix was the one in his soul.
In Moe's final episode, Tad was in a hot tub with Contessa. Tad told Contessa that he never used to trust her but now she seems so nice. Contessa then asked if Tad would take a skydiving lesson to celebrate his newfound trust in her. Tad was about to agree when the doorbell rung, interrupting them. Tad went to answer the doorbell to find it was an angel from the future (played by Homer). The angel told Tad that he was going to die in a skydiving accident. The angel then went on to tell Tad that Gabriella St. Farge's baby shower would be invaded by terrorists and that Sister Bernadette would leave the convent and start a softball team. The episode was then cut from air.
Tad Winslow appears to be a womanizer, having relationships with Cleo and Contessa in two separate episodes. He is also dedicated to his job, calling off his relationship with Cleo as it's against hospital regulations. On the surface, Tad Winslow appears to love himself more than other people. However, he claims to have a hole in his soul which he can't fix, implying he doesn't love himself as much as people think.
