Synopsis by Mark Deming
Marge and Homer Simpson (voices of Julie Kavner and Dan Castellaneta) are celebrating the birthday of their baby daughter Maggie, and since it wouldn't be a birthday party without grandparents in attendance, Homer's father, Grampa (also voiced by Castellaneta), and Marge's mother, Jacqueline Bouvier (also voiced by Kavner), are invited to join the fun. Marge thinks both Grampa and Jacqueline seem a bit lonely, and she encourages the two to spend time together. They do, and before long Grampa has fallen in love with Jacqueline. Grampa is considering popping the big question to Jacqueline during a dance at the Senior Citizen's Center when he discovers that he has a rival for her affections -- aging multi-millionaire C. Montgomery Burns (voice of Harry Shearer). Grampa can't match Burns' bankroll (or his dancing ability), but when he learns that Burns has planned to wed Jacqueline, he's determined to stop the ceremony however he can. Meanwhile, rabid Itchy and Scratchy fan Bart (voice of Nancy Cartwright) can't resist temptation when rare animation cells from the show are offered for sale on television. However, after putting 400 dollars on Homer's credit card without his permission, Bart gets his cell and discovers it's just a frame of Itchy's arm, and practically worthless. "Lady Bouvier's Lover" first aired on May 12, 1994.
