  • Fat Homer.

    Homer tries to get out of the plant's exercise program and he discovers that being on disablility would do just that. So, with Bart's help, Homer starts to eat anything and everything to gain weight. Homer starts to work at home after he reached his 300 pound goal. When he leaves his computer duties in the beak of a bird, suddenly the tank at the plant reaches critical and it must be shut down manually. Homer rushes over to the plant in an ice cream truck and climbs up the ladder to reach the manual shutdown switch, but the catwalk splits due to his weight. The tank blows and Homer falls into it which prevents the gas from leaking out. Mr. Burns who admires Homer's work decides to do him any favor he wants. Homer then decides that a lifetime on disability is not what he wants anymore so he asks Mr. Burns to help him lose weight. When Homer can't even do one sit-up, Mr. Burns tells him that he would pay for liposuction, Homer suddenly cheers.
