In which episode do Marge and Homer practice "Nonviolent Communication"?

0 votes
Homer snaffles a cake, then Marge says something like "You have eaten the cake I have made. I feel hurt and angry!" to which Homer replies something along the lines of "I empathise with your anger."

Homer essentially gets away with stealing the cake and laughs.  Bart and Lisa then look at each other and shrug.

Which episode is this?  Thanks!

"Bart's Inner Child".

 

The quote was:

Marge: Homer, did you eat my whole pan of brownies?
Bart: Uh oh. You're in for it now, Dad.
Homer: Marge, I'm feeling a lot of shame right now.
Marge: I'm hearing that you feel a lot of shame.
Homer: And I feel that you hear my shame.
Marge: I'm feeling annoyance and frustration, but also tolerance.
Homer: I feel validated by that.
Marge: Good! I'm glad we had this talk.
Homer: Me too.
