"There's No Disgrace Like Home" is the fourth episode of The Simpsons' first season. It first aired on the Fox network in the United States on January 28, 1990.[2] In the episode, Homer becomes ashamed of his family after a catastrophic company picnic and decides to enroll them in therapy. The therapist struggles to solve their problems but eventually gives up and refunds their payment. It was an early episode, showing early designs for a few recurring characters. The episode is inspired by the comedy of Laurel and Hardy and features cultural references to films such as Citizen Kane and Freaks as well as the Batman and Twilight Zone television series. Critics noted that the characters acted differently from the way they would in later seasons. In the UK, the BBC chose it as the first episode to be aired when they started showing the series.[2]

Plot

Homer takes his family to a company picnic given by his boss, Mr. Burns, and hopes they will not embarrass him. After Bart, Lisa and Marge all misbehave, Homer sees that Burns is drawn to a "normal" family that treats one another with respect, and he wonders why he is cursed with his troubled family.

Determined to improve his family's behavior, Homer takes them on a tour of the neighborhood, peeking through living room windows to observe how happy families spend time together. Depressed by the outing, Homer stops by Moe's Tavern, where he sees a commercial for Dr. Marvin Monroe's Family Therapy Center. Dr. Monroe guarantees "family bliss or double your money back."

Homer makes an appointment at the clinic and pays for it by pawning their television. Dr. Monroe encourages the family to express their unhappiness and release their hostility toward one another through several exercises. When these methods prove ineffective the doctor takes them all to a generator, allowing them to deliver electric shocks to each other. The family shocks one another to the point of causing a power drain on the city and driving the doctor's other patients away. Unable to help them, Dr. Monroe gives the Simpsons double their money back. With a fresh sense of family unity, they use the money to buy a new television set.

Aye. It's gotten to the point where the Irish (Both sets) hate the English, the Welsh hate the English, the Scottish hate the English and the English hate the English.
