- ―Ling's first word
Ling Bouvier is the adopted daughter of Selma Bouvier, after discovering that she had reached menopause.
First appears in Goo Goo Gai Pan.
Selma adopted Ling in Beijing, China after discovering that she had reached menopause. She lied about being married to Homer Simpson, in order to fool the local authorities into thinking that Ling would be part of a traditional family as opposed to a single mother. Though she and Jacqueline Bouvier have only been seen once together, Jacqueline is her adopted grandmother. It is later revealed in Changing of the Guardian that Selma and Patty push her to her limit in numerous hobbies and fail to praise her.
Behind the LaughterEdit
In her first appearance in Goo Goo Gai Pan she only made a few appearances making baby giggles and her only actual word in the series was "momma". During her other 3 appearances she did not talk. She was voiced by Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart, making her the only Bouvier female not voiced by Julie Kavner.
She appears slightly older by "Changing of the Guardian", walking, exhibiting manual dexterity, and even performing gymnastics. She also seems able to speak in complete sentences, saying "Help me!" to Marge.
