Jacqueline Ingrid "Jackie" Bouvier (née Gurney), occasionally referred to as Mrs. Bouvier or Grandma Bouvier, is the mother of Selma, Patty and Marge Bouvier, the maternal grandmother of Bart, Hugo (non-canon), Lisa, and Maggie Simpson and Ling Bouvier, and the widow of the late Clancy Bouvier. She also has a sister named Gladys who is now deceased. Jacqueline is 80 years old.
Common Bouvier TraitsEdit
Jacqueline shares many Bouvier family traits with her daughters. When Marge was a little girl, Jacqueline had a blue beehive hairdo like Marge's, and her voice was also very similar to Marge's as an adult. However, Jacqueline also has traits in common with Patty and Selma, including a pessimistic and critical outlook on life and rarely smiling. She used to smoke as well. However, Jaqueline seems to have stopped by now.
While she may also have a generally negative opinion of Homer like Patty and Selma, Jacqueline does not express it as much as Marge's sisters. The closest negative point that Jacqueline got to Homer was when she asked him never to call her "mom", although this may have meant she did not like the term, not necessarily that she did not like having Homer for a son-in-law. Jacqueline's attitude towards Homer seems to have softened over the years; she even stated that "Patty and Selma are a sort of evil" when they purposely provoked Homer one night.
Jacqueline was married to Clancy Bouvier, who is now deceased. Jacqueline had a brief romance with Abraham Simpson, her son-in-law Homer's father. However, she broke up with him when she was wooed by billionaire Charles Montgomery Burns, whom she nearly married before Abraham's intervention made her decide she was better off alone; Abraham was delighted nevertheless and said "That's good enough for me!". However, Abraham and Burns are still seen trying to woo Jacueline at times.
Behind the LaughterEdit
Simpsons creator Matt Groening named Jacqueline after Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. She has the tallest hair of all Simpsons characters. According to a DVD commentary, her appearance was created by "taking Marge's model and squashing it."
Most of Jacqueline's roles are brief, background appearances. The bold text indicates a larger role with a respective amount of dialogue.
