Homer is fired from the plant and quickly lands a successful career as an ice cream man. Marge feels she is constantly being overshadowed by Homer's many careers (astronaut, Krusty impersonator, etc...) and she starts creating popsicle stick sculptures to work through her depression. The pieces quickly takeoff and Marge believes she'll rise out of Homer's shadow at an art opening until Homer (who is being chased by the ice cream Mafia) crashes his truck into the event and sets the pieces on fire. Marge believes the accident was a deliberate attempt at making sure she is never as happy as her husband and she begins ignoring her family. Marge later realizes her error and reconnects with her husband by making a giant statue of a near nude Homer in town square.
