The Posh lady (real name unknown; also referred to as the Socialite or Society matron) is a woman who lives in Springfield. She is prone to fainting when she encounters something that shocks or surprises her.
The Posh Lady appears to be a wealthy woman as she is always seen wearing an expensive Chanel suit; she also speaks with a stereotypical upper-class accent. In spite of the relatively rigid social conventions in which she operates, the Posh Lady shows a bit of common touch as she takes part in "regular people" activities such as going to sporting events and to the zoo. She also defies social convention by seeking out the men's room's facilities when she finds a long line in the ladies' room.
More in keeping with her social status, the Posh Lady is a debate aficionado and supports Springfield Elementary School's debate team.
The Posh Lady had the misfortune of walking into two of the "prank monkey" practical jokes played by Mr. Burns and Homer. She fainted dead away both times:
- Burns had Homer wear a giant diaper in a men's room at Springfield Stadium, then lie on the floor and act like a baby needing to be changed: "I made a boom-boom!" This drew cries of disgust from the other men in the restroom. The Posh Lady burst into the room and said, "The line in the ladies' room was far too long, and so I hope you don't mind if I -" She then cut herself off and gasped at the sight of Homer in the diaper. Homer continued with his act: "Baby made a boom-boom!" The Posh Lady exclaimed, "Oh, good heavens!" and fainted on the spot.
- At Springfield Zoo, Homer and Burns pranked the Panda-Monium! exhibit. Homer, wearing a panda costume, posed as Sim-Sim, the zoo's new female panda. He ended up being shocked by electrical prods, assaulted by Ping-Ping (the zoo's male panda), and sprayed by skunks. Afterwards, Lisa consoled him as he sat on a bench wearing nothing but a towel and his underwear. Taking Lisa's advice, Homer decided to quit working as a prank monkey and rebuild his self-esteem. Determined to get started, Homer took off his towel and stood up, but as he did so, his underwear caught on the bench and tore away, leaving Homer standing there naked. Just then, the Posh Lady came along and got a full view of Homer. This time, she said, "Good Lord, what a week!" as she fainted.
The Posh lady attended a debate meet at Springfield Elementary. She watched a debate where Lisa had dyed her hair brown prior to the match because she had been battling hair-color stereotypes associated with her blond hair. With brown hair, Lisa presented a deliberately weak argument which received enthusiastic approval from the judges, and then confronted them for judging the debate based on her hair color. When Lisa announced that she was really a blond, the Posh Lady fainted.
When Bart used a window washing platform on a tall building to moon some of the building's occupants, one of the groups that saw him was a Society Matrons Lunch and among the attendees was the Posh Lady. She did not faint, however, but exclaimed "Why, we never!" in unison with the rest of the group.
