    At the Power Plant, Homer falls asleep, unaware that a nuclear meltdown has begun and he is responsible. Only he can stop it and all of Springfield is reliable. With only seconds to go, he presses a random button and stops the meltdown. He is hailed a hero, and given the position of employee of the month. The owner of the Shelbyville Plant is impressed with Homer so much that he asks him to perform a speech to his workers. Homer knows what happened was a fraud. At the speech, Homer is lost for words, but is saved by the bell when another meltdown occurs. Again, it is up to Homer to stop it, but everybody is watching him. Again, he pushes a random button, and the meltdown is stopped. Homer's true colours are revealled, it was just a lucky guess.
