Mrs. Skinner is painted as the quintessential overbearing mother, but I would argue that the opposite is true. There’s a lot wrong with the episode “The Principal and the Pauper”, in which it turns out Principal Skinner is actually an impostor named Armand Tanzarian, but I would argue that the worst part of it is the old woman’s willingness cut her biological son out of her life forever (by tying him to a train no less) in favor of the man that stole his identity.
Key Line: ”I’m sorry, Seymour. It’s nice you’re alive, but you’re just not what I’m looking for in a son. I’m glad you understand.”
