The Regina Monologues - airdate: November 23, 2003
Written by John Swartzwelder
Mr. Burns loses a thousand-dollar bill that is quickly turned into the
main display at the Museum of Modern Bart. After Burns shows up to
reclaim his money, Bart realizes he still earned enough from charging
admission to take the Simpsons to England. When they arrive, Marge begs
Homer to make this an incident-free trip, which he actually succeeds at
until he accidentally runs into the Queen. Now the only thing that will
earn Homer a stay of execution is whether he can uncover the plot to
poison her majesty. (Will likely air as the season premiere, following
the annual Treehouse of Horror episode.)
Guest starring Tony Blair , Ian McKellen, Jane Leeves and J.K. Rowling
as themselves (I'm actually unsure of who Jane Leeves is playing).
