    • Homer: It's showtime! Okay, okay, think back to your training...
      (Flashback to Homer's training)
      Trainer: Now, Homer, this may very well save your life one day. This... Homer?
      Homer: (playing with a Rubik's cube) Yeah?
      Trainer: Please pay attention. This button here controls the emergency override circuit. In the event of a meltdown, push this button and only this button.
      Homer: (paying more attention to the cube) Ooh, a side!
      Trainer: Simpson!
      Homer: What?
      Trainer: You see which button I'm pushing?
      Homer: (not looking) Yeah, yeah, yeah. Push the button. Got it.
      (Back to present)
      Homer: (to the Rubik's cube) This is all your fault! (throws it away) OK, gotta pick a button, pick a button, pick a button... uh, one potato, two potato, three potato, four... no, wait! Bubble gum, bubble gum, in a dish, how many pieces do you wish? No, no!
