“Moms I’d Like to Forget” is the tenth episode of season 22 and aired on January 9, 2011.


When Bart discovers that a fifth grader has a scar identical to one Bart has, Marge tells him about a club of four mothers she was in seven years ago; when Marge decides to reunite with the mothers, while Homer reunites with the fathers and Bart the boys, things turn out much better for Marge than for Homer or Bart, who, after hearing the story from Comic Book Guy about how they got their scars, tries to break up the group.[1]

Full storyEdit

The episode opens with a dodge ball match between the 4th and 5th graders. Bart ends up hitting the last last fifth grader. However, Erik catches it after it comes back down, making the 5th graders win the match.

In the days that follow, the 4th graders harass the 5th graders to the point that they organize a fight after school. Before the fight begins, Bart notices Erik has a scar on his fist, which is identical to one that he has.

Bart confronts Marge about the scar. Marge explains that when he was in preschool, he was in a "Mommy and Me class" with three other kids. Marge became very close with the other mothers, and they became "the Cool Moms." However, the other kids were a bad influence on Bart. Marge then decides to get back together with her old group.

Marge's old friends reconcile while Bart gets together with the other kids, where he realizes he still does not know where the scar came from. Marge and her friends decide to get together every Tuesday. Meeting with the other kids every week, their antics become more and more dangerous, so Bart decides to break up the group. Knowing they broke up before, Bart realizes it must have something to do with the scar and consults Dr. Hibbert, who suggests he ask Comic Book Guy. Comic Book Guy then reveals what happened: About 7 years ago, on the 4th of July, he was in charge of the fireworks. While Marge and the other moms talked, Bart and the boys stumbled off towards the fireworks controls and pressed all the buttons, setting off all the fireworks. In the fiery explosion that followed, Comic Book Guy's sandwich was hit by a firework, sending the burning hot skewers onto the boys fists, branding them.

Knowing it was an explosion that split them apart, Bart and Milhouse create a big ball of firecrackers to break them up again. When Marge catches them in the act, Bart confesses. That evening, Marge tells the group of Bart's scheme to break them up, and they tell her Bart was always a bad influence to their kids. Marge becomes angry and leaves the group. Afterwards, the women all start making out with each other.
