Wanda Sykes and George Takei guest voice as a couple experiencing marital differences. After watching A Streetcar Named Desire Milhouse takes on a Marlon Brando-inspired bad-boy persona to attract Lisa. Milhouse seeks then advice from the school counselor. Homer tries to save his marriage by becoming a better man and fulfilling old promises when Marge becomes fed up with his behavior and he seeks advice from his local sushi chef.
This is the first episode promotion to start on a day other than Thursday. Milhouse even notices that it's Monday, but "something bigger" is supposed to happen on Thursday, hinting to the Whacking Day 2013 Event.
