Marge: [voice over] The kids at school were even worse.
[young Marge gets on the bus, sits next to a girl]
Girl: [seeing her lunch pail] Ew! You like the Monkees? You know
they don't write their own songs.
Marge: They do so!
Girl: They don't even play their own instruments.
Girl: That's not even Michael Nesmith's real hat.
Marge: Aah!

In reply to this comment by gargoyle:
I beg to differ on the instrument playing...a quick check with wikipedia and at least two of them are well able to:

"Texan Michael Nesmith was a songwriter and guitarist who had recorded for Colpix under the name "Michael Blessing." He was the only Monkee who had come in to audition from seeing the original advertisement.

Peter Tork was recommended to Rafelson and Schneider by friend Stephen Stills.[2] Tork, a skilled multi-instrumentalist, had performed at various Greenwich Village folk clubs before moving west, where he was a dishwasher before becoming a Monkee.[2]"
