That '90s Show - S19-E11

Question: Near the beginning of this episode, there is a heating repairman. He asks "Does anyone want to hear the story of the love I once had and lost?" or something like that. Is this character supposed to be the professor from Marge's flashback? He is also seen later on sitting with the kids and listening to Marge's narration, but then he just disappears from the story with no explanation. The purpose of introducing and then abandoning this character is lost on me.

Chosen answer: I think a lot of shows (Simpsons included) use the trope of an initial set up kicking off the main plot but not being referenced back again. As in if this was a regular show the heating repairman would be forgotten and that plot line dropped. The Simpsons were just making a joke and kinda spoofing that trope by having the repairman pop back up again to listen to the story.

Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind - S19-E9

Question: It is said on TV.com that the piano tune played during Homer's flashbacks is an untitled track written by Carlo Comando. Does anyone know the title of this track, or where it can be found?
