“The Springfield ladies had a marvelous time journeying back to an era when England was filled with eligible young ladies in corsets courted by hot multi-racial dudes with rock-hard abs,” a narrator explains as Tunnelton plays on the television.
“The writing on this show is amazing,” Marge quips. “Men can have muscles on their chest now?”
