Four references that could be used by one character to mock another character wearing a ridiculous muumuu dress in a scene from a fictional sitcom

I suppose the title speaks for itself.

Mama Harper
"On tonight's episode of 'Mama's Family..."

Mrs. Roper
"Could you tell Mr. Roper that the rent will be ready tomorrow?"

Mama Bear
"So what trouble did the other Berenstain Bears get into this time Mama? Too much junk food? Too much TV?" (Too soon? Also, I never realized how frequently the covers involved a shot of the mom glaring disapprovingly at her family).

King-Size Homer
"Didn't want to look like a weirdo, huh?" But really, any reference to the episode would be fine: "Gas break honk. Honk honk punch. Gas gas gas"; "Where's your cape?"; "Off to see 'Honk If You're Horny'?"; "Now you're a big fat dynamo!" (all these references would also work best if the muumuu wearing character was a male, preferably fat).

I also considered a reference to Lady Aberlin from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, but I figured it was a shade too esoteric; that and I always found it perplexing and disconcerting as a child that her uncle King Friday was a hand sized puppet while she was a full grown human woman.
