The Simpsons: A Different Life
  • Philosophy → Existentialism → Freedom of Choice

Homer dies and has a dream in which his guardian angel shows him how his life would be if he had decided to marry Mindy instead of Marge, with the intention of showing him the negative consequences of that decision. Ironically, the consequences are all positive, causing Homer pain. Although there is no single way that Homer is "supposed to live," the choices he made throughout his life may have been the wrong choices.
