Subject:        Simpson--Much Ado About Stuffing

Episode 3F05 - Original Airdate 11/5/95

King-Size Homer
"Homer decides that he wants to work at home and discovers how to attain
his goal: he gorges himself until he reaches a target weight of 300
pounds and is officially declared disabled. The power plant installs a
computerized workstation for Homer in his home.

Looking for shortcuts in his job performance, Homer uses a novelty
bobbing-head bird as a substitute for his fingers at the keyboard and
goes to the movies. Refused admittance because of his size, he returns
home only to find that the bird has failed and the reactor core is about
to explode.

Homer hijacks an ice cream truck and races to the plant. He climbs a
ladder to get to the manual shut-down lever, but the catwalk buckles
under his enormous weight. When the tank's sealing cap ruptures, Homer
falls and his body seals the leak. To reward Homer for saving the plant,
Mr. Burns agrees to pay for liposuction so that Homer can return to his
normal size."

"...Much Ado About Stuffing... are products Homer buys at the grocery
store."
