I watched it last night. I have to say it's pretty good, funny, pretty entertaining plot. I'd go a bit further into detail but I'm very tired... A-

Really good episode imo. Very funny, a coherant plot, and a nice character study of Marge.

"The strength of the show is the characters - that's the strength of any good show. Since they've gotten more mainstream, they keep wanting to go for the easy laughs, the stupid jokes. I think it's the wrong move, and an insult to the intelligence of the audience." - Yeardley Smith
Interesting that it's named Homer Alone when the episode is as much about Marge as Homer (if not more so). I guess they just couldn't resist the pun.
I definitely think the episode deserves a full 5 out of 5 stars. I especially like Homer's line, "What's the matter, honey, your husband not giving it to you often enough at home?" (or something to that effect).
This is, in my opinion, pretty average, with no really spectacular moments. It seems like a sitcom, and it lacks the Simpsony feel to it. On the other hand, it did have its moments and it was great to see how Marge ticks. Overall, a solid B or a 4/5.
Absolutely loved the Wiggum/Quimby Feud, a really good character for both Homer and Marge, I really liked the scene with Maggie looking for Marge, I thought this episode was sweet while still able to make me laugh
Thanks for making this thread, it's one of the ones needed to fill the gaps in the R&R archive. I say 4/5, funny and quite touching.
I think that it was an average episode for a classic era episode if it was after the classic era I would have said that it was good.
Summer of the 4FT.2 is the best episode ever
Good. Nothing blew me away. Or should it anyone.
4/5. It wasn't a great episode, but it had its moments.
It seemed, though, that the only time we got to see around Rancho Relaxo was in the hotel's video that Marge watched starring Troy McClure.
I've seen it so many times, and it never seems to get old.
^What he said, except I have grown increasingly weary of this one. It's funny, but like Simpson and Delilah, I know every joke and nuance and just end up on autopilot when it's on. 3/5
Not often mentioned, it's a pure classic. Everything, and I mean everything, in this episode was excellent. From Marge's breakdown to Bart and Lisa at Patty and Selma's, Barney, Homer looking after (and losing) Maggie and Maggie trying to find Marge, and Marge coming home in the end. It's episodes like this that make season 3 the best in my opinion, and rightly so. A+
A tribute to Bart Simpson
You think THAT's bad? What about that time when I was turned into a Tetris block?
Pretty underrated, not sure why.

Marge exploding from stress on the bridge is one of the coolest Marge moments ever. And Bart and Lisa at Patty & Selma's is gold. "Come on kids, time to rub Aunt Patty's feet!" "Oooh, Divorce Court is on in 15 minutes!"
I love it! 5/5
she didnt exactly read shrek the 3rd, which apparently exists as some sort of companion book for a pixar movie. no, this would probably take several minutes (perhaps 10), and would have ultimately depricated the shrek 3 cinematic experience
she merely looked at the book
she saw it, perhaps in the childrens section of a barnes & noble, registered it in her mind as being in existance, and filed it away for later as the subject for a post on BOOKS YOUVE READ. only she just looked at it. and it was shrek 3
in a way its the saddest post ive ever read
-toxic shock syndrome
brilliant episode that definetly deserves to be one of the best of season 3. regardless of the rest of the amazing episodes from that season
It's a classic episodes. One of my favourites as a child.
this is a classic season 3 episode 4/5
I love this one too. I was watching it recently and thinking about how extended Maggie sequences sometimes have the artistic merit of a good silent movie. The same applies to her sequence in "A Streetcar Named Marge". I love Marge's celebration at the end of her trip and Homer's both sweet and hilarious attempts to take care of Maggie when he staples her diaper, tries to feed her, uses the picture to explain Marge being away, and tries to sing her to sleep.

Uhhh....I'll be back! Pruh-Probably.
Good episode (actually it's great and that means 5/5).
Not often mentioned, but one of the best of it's season.
really great episode and one of my favorite Homer based episodes.
Funny to see how Homer handles everything when Marge is out of town.
My favorite scenes the ones with Barney when Maggie gets lost.
4/5, a very good episode.
Kids, let me tell you about another so-called ``wicked'' guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas. He didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was...
I forget. But the point is... I forget that, too. Marge, you know what I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?
-- Homer's parable of the guy in the blue car, ``Homer the Heretic''
Ralph: I Won! I Won!
Principal Skinner: No Ralph this means you're failing English
Ralph: Me fail English? That's unpossible.
Definitely a good episode. Touching and sweet but has funny moments of course. 4/5
not a bad 50th episode. 4/5
You guys may think i'm crazy but this is my favorite episode in the whole series A+

I have a feeling this episode would be hailed more often had the other episodes in its season not been so fantastic. As it stands, this is a decent episode, but nowhere near Season 3's best. "Rancho Relaxo" is brilliant, as are several other jokes, but starting at the point where Maggie runs (...crawls?) away, I get rather bored. 3.5/5
I really like this episode, I usually have a soft spot for episodes that have Maggie centered scenes, it also had some great humour , such as Bart and Lisa's experience while staying with Patty & Selma
