Bernice Hibbert (voiced by Tress MacNeille )  is Dr. Julius Hibbert 's wife and is loosely based on the Clair Huxtable character from The Cosby Show .  The Hibberts have three children, two boys and a girl. Nevertheless, her marriage is on the rocks;  she refuses to kiss her husband, even in front of an entire audience.  Her drinking has been joked about on several occasions. She fainted when she read that "Prohibition" had been introduced to Springfield  and attends Springfield Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. 
Steroids shattered the limitations of my body. I first sensed their effects while bench-pressing dumbbells. I usually peak at 85lb each, or 170lb total. But after 10 repetitions with the 85s I was stunned: it felt like a warm-up! With a degree of trepidation - we're talking weights that, if mishandled, could break a wrist or some ribs - I picked up the 90-pounders, which I'd never attempted. They went up easily and I ripped out 10 reps. It was an out-of-body sensation: somebody else's arms were pushing those weights, someone else's pectorals flexing and contracting.
