    The episode begins with the family and Marge's sisters watching TV in the living room. Homer sees a commercial for Dimoxinil "the new miracle breakthrough in hair regrowth." Homer heads to a clinic in the mall where Dimoxinil is sold, but when he finds out it costs 1,000 dollars for a six-month supply, he walks away dejected. The next day at the power plant during lunch, Homer complains about the lack of tartar sauce for his fish sticks, and tells Carl and Lenny about the new hair product that he can't afford. They convince Homer that he should charge the Dimoxinil to the company's health insurance. Later, Homer heads back to the clinic to do just that. Before going to bed that night Homer applies the Dimoxinil to his scalp and says a quick prayer. The next morning Homer wakes up to discover a thick flowing mane of hair. A jubilant Homer runs through the town showing off his new hair. Homer heads over to the barber shop and gets a stylish haircut. Later, at the power plant Mr. Burns, who has to give one token promotion a year, spots Homer with his full head of hair. He appears energetic and resourceful with his new hair, so Mr. Burns promotes Homer to the position of junior executive.
