I'm not sure about this, so thats why it's in here.

Does anyone know Marge's Maiden name, does it start with an B? In Hell is Other Robots (Season 1 Episode 9) when Fry and Leela walk into the The Inferno ride at the old New Jersey amusement park, down in the right hand corner there is a heart drawn in with the initials H.S.+ M.B. in it.





edit:
Also, I listened to the audio commentary and no mention of it.

Marge's maiden name is Bouvier, so it's almost certainly a reference.

Yeah thats a great find Foot_Knight! I think i vaguely remember an episode when they did carve their names into a wall. I think it was in a mini-golf windmill or something.

Nasty Pasty, you're thinking of either season 3's "I Married Marge" or season 9's "Natural Born Kissers". They never carved their name, but they did "do it" in a windmill in both of the two episodes mentioned, which would explain your confusion.

No offense, but that's been known for years to be a Simpsons reference. Still nice spotted, it's easy to overlook.

Welcome to PEEL, Foot_Knight. Enjoy it here.  :)

It was also seen carved into a tree in Mars University.

That's where it was mentioned in a commentary.

yeah someone pointed out that heart in Hell is Other Robots like ages ago, but still it's a split second reference to see, so kudos to you....

I didn't know there was one in Mars U though... nor do I recall the commentary, I must be an eediot...
