  • Homer gets fired from his job, feeling sad and suicidal, but when his family tells him they love him, he reconsiders, then he helps clean up his town, Springfield, and everyone around town starts to really like him, he gets rehired, and people are happy.

    I think The Simpsons, is a Good, Grade A, World Champion show around the world and this is the best episode. It's funny, teaches you that there are always people there for you, and you can always help. I think Matt Groening did a good job thinking of the title, too. I thought it was a clever name. I thought it was funny that Homer wanted to use Bart's money to buy a beer, and when Homer crashed into the wall when he looked to say "hi" to Bart. All in all, I thought it was a good episode and I rate it 10 out of 10.
