    Smile blue thing with the things=?

    Scenario

    (Homer and Marge lodged in a motel one night. Home was lying on the bed.)

    Marge: Maybe I'll go slip into something a little more comfortable.

    Homer: Oh! Your blue thing with the things?

    Marge: You'll see.

    Homer: Well, shake a leg, mama.

    Question:

    blue thing with the things=?


    Thanks!

    Maybe a blue nightdress or similar garment with ornamental bits - or, knowing Marge, something like the garments worn by strippers.

    Anglika,

    Thank you for your answer.

    Why did Homer say it with a mouthful if you have some idea again?
