Marge pursues a new career in real estate sales while Homer is pursued by Snake. Marge starts working at Red Blazer Reality, a highly competitive company where she must sell a certain number of houses or be fired. Meanwhile, Homer buys Snake's old car from a Police Auction and Snake isn't too happy about it. Marge has trouble dealing with the fact that being an effective salesperson requires a lot of lying, and starts to wonder if she's cut out for selling houses. But when she manages to get the Flanders to buy an impossible-to-sell house where a murder occurred, she thinks she's getting the hang of it. Rather than be upset at the fact that they've moved into a crime scene, the Flanders are elated, since they're strangely fascinated by the details of the murder. All is fine, until Homer and Snake crash Snake's car through the Flanders' new house, destroying it. Marge is fired from Red Blazer Realty.
