"Evergreen Terrace is overrun with traffic and Moe has a fateful choice to make."


In the prehistoric era, nehandertalian Springfielders are shown in the evolution of mankind, inventing transportation and Homer "inventing" the first traffic jam right after the invention of the wheel. In the modern era, a traffic jam is seen in front of the Simpson house. In the house, even Homer and Marge's affection time is affected.

In the traffic jam, Moe is depressed and sees someone familiar in his rear mirror, and starts running away from it. The traffic jam seem to be caused by the app Wayz, and Marge calls for a neighborhood meeting, however the neighbors mention the problem being the family.

Trying to solve the problem so the others will reconsider it, Homer tries contacting Wayz, but fails after having to do lots of captcha checks and being put on a 5700 queue on hold. Meanwhile, Moe finds out that the person behind him was his long lost love, Maya, getting in love with her again, but avoiding saying it because of his past relationships ending whenever he said he loves them.

At Frink's House, the family asks for Professor Frink's help on the situation, and he proposes to make the street disappear from the database, solving the problem, but causing people to like Homer too much, while Moe is having trouble with the fear of being left by Maya again, and refuges himself in Bart's treehouse.

To solve the issue, Homer proposes Moe to propose to her, but finds her packing up to leave again, so before it was too late, he proposes and she accepts. Moe then tries to take her to dinner at Luigi's with a free meal ticket, but the ticket is expired.
