I REALLY like the giant ship floating in my Squidport now. EA made me very happy in this decoration. Yes, it does cost a lil bit of donuts. But it looks SOOOO cool. Now for what you came here to find out. Where in the Simpsons world did the Mayflower come from?
Well, the episode is the “Wettest Story Ever Told”.
The Simpsons are eating at the Frying Dutchman, but there is an issue with the nights special (the octopus is putting up quite a fight). The Sea Captain comes out to tell them a story, if only he knew one.
Lisa points out she knows about the Mayflower (the ship that brought prostitutes to America, per the Captain).
The voyage of the Mayflower starts of with a widowed Marge and her kids going to the new world. Homer is running from the “law” and tries to hide on the ship. Marge allows him to dress in her dead husbands clothes.
The story continues on as they cross the seas. Moe, who wants to marry Marge, tries to get Homer drunk so she won’t want him.
Meanwhile Captain Flanders and the Reverend are top side trying to sail the boat in the storm. Apparently it does no good to pray…you just get zapped by lightning. Lol
Having trouble keeping the ship a float, they go looking for the crew and find them all drunk and misbehaving.
They put Homer in restraints. As the ship continues to toss and turn, Flanders is knocked out. Drunk Homer saves the day and navigates them safely through the storm and to land.
In the end Homer and Marge still end up together (not a shock) and the First Thanksgiving is celebrated with Chief Wig Gum on the new land.
The episode features many ships as they continue to tell stories and wait for food, but EA chose to place the Mayflower in our towns (it is linked to Thanksgiving). GREAT choice in my opinion. I LOVE the way it looks in the Squidport Harbor. So…there you have it.
FYI our OTHER resident Fuzzball kind of predicted some of the new items in his What A Wookiee Wants post. You should check it out.
