Mrs. Trippe constantly moans about her poor choice of Homer over one-time suitor Oscar Armstrong. Homer is happy, poetic, and kind, but afraid to stand up to Mrs. Trippe's opposition to Dan and Betty's romance. Dan gives Betty an ultimatum: marry him or lose him. Meanwhile, Homer feeds a tramp, who turns out to be the oft-invoked Oscar Armstrong. But Oscar has an even bigger surprise in store for the Trippes. Written by Jim Beaver See less
