    When the Nuclear Regulatory Commission makes a surprise inspection of the power plant, Homer accidentally causes a meltdown during a simulation van test. The NRC discover Homer did not attend college, which is needed for the job he is in. Burns gets him accepted into Springfield University. The Physics professor gets Homer partnered up with three young nerds, Benjamin, Doug, and Gary. Homer is the one teaching them lessons, on how to be cool. They organise a prank to kidnap the pig from the Springfield A&M. The nerds are caught and entirely blamed. Dean Peterson expells the nerds. Feeling guilty, Homer tries to get the nerds readmitted.
