Description
  • Marge and Lisa visit the nail salon where they engage in a spirited debate as to whether a woman can be smart, powerful and beautiful all at the same time and spin four tales of famous women featuring famous Springfield faces: Selma as Queen Elizabeth I, Lisa as Snow White, Marge as Lady Macbeth and Maggie as Howard Roark, the idealistic architect protagonist from Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.
  • "Four Great Women and a Manicure" is the twentieth episode of the twentieth season of The Simpsons. First broadcast on the Fox network in the United States on May 10, 2009, it was the second Simpsons episode to have four acts instead of the usual three. The episode tells four tales of famous women featuring Simpsons characters in various roles: Selma as Queen Elizabeth I, Lisa as Snow White, Marge as Lady Macbeth and Maggie as Howard Roark from Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead. Jodie Foster performs the voice of Maggie Simpson. The title is a reference to the 1994 film Four Weddings and a Funeral. The episode was the lowest-rated episode in terms of viewers in the show's history at the time, though it has since been surpassed. It is the only episode in the history of the show in which Bart Simpson is not seen or mentioned. It is also the second episode to first air on Mother's Day and deal with women or mothers.
