"I Envy You and Homer."

Simpsons animation layout drawing of Marge and her cohort Ruth Powers from the 6th episode of Season 5 "Marge On The Lam," which first aired November 6th, 1993. Colored pencil and graphite on 12-field animation paper. 260x305 mm; 10 1/4x12 inches, sheet. Caption and notations in margins. Framed to 15 1/2x17 1/2 inches.

With a plot that riffs on the 1991 film "Thelma and Louise," "Marge on the Lam" is a well-known episode from what many fans consider one of the long-running show's best seasons. The scene depicted here begins 6 minutes, 26 seconds into the episode, when Marge and her new friend Ruth bond over coffee at "Jittery Joe's Coffee Shop," and Ruth confesses: "I envy you and Homer," which is written in the dialogue note at the top of the drawing.
