The couch is on display in the Smithsonian Museum. The Simpsons break into the museum, cat-burglar style, and make their way to the couch by disguising themselves to blend in with the various exhibits they pass through. When they reach the display with the couch, a blast from a spray can reveals that the couch is surrounded by a grid of laser beams, but with gaps shaped like the Simpsons' silhouettes. The family then step through the gaps and sit on the couch.
After Homer discovers a genius talent for styling hair after cutting Patty Bouvier's hair and opens his own salon, he becomes Springfield's most in-demand hair stylist. But having to listen to women's problems and gossip all day long leads Homer to believe his gift may actually be a curse. In order to stop people from coming to him to get their hair cut, he styles Marge's hair for a party, amazing everyone, and tells them that Julio did it. Meanwhile, when Milhouse decides to live each day to the fullest, (after watching the 'real' start to 'Finding Nemo') he comes out of his shell and professes his love for Lisa, only to have his heart broken. Milhouse then catches the eye of popular fifth-grader Taffy (guest star Kristen Schaal), causing Lisa to spy on them. When she reveals herself to them Taffy breaks up with Milhouse because he still loves Lisa and she kisses Milhouse to make him happy.
