Another important fact about this character was mentioned in the episode "I'm with Cupid", when all the men of Springfield were angry with Apu because he was giving large and expensive gifts to Manjula, leaving the wives of the men jealous and envious.

In the episode "The Nightmare After Krustmas", Barbara separates from Mel.
