    • (A government inspection team arrives and inspects the nuclear power plant.)
      Government Inspector: Okay, men. Geiger counters on.
      (The inspection team turns on their Geiger counters, and they immediately start buzzing.)
      Inspection Team: (In unison) Huh?
      Mr. Burns: Ah, I suppose that's normal background radiation, the kind you'd find in any well-maintained nuclear facility or, for that matter, playgrounds and hospitals.
      (The Government Inspector makes a checkmark on his clipboard.)
      Government Inspector: Sorry.
      (Cut to the cooling towers.)
      Government Inspector: (Whistles in amazement.) Gum used to seal crack in cooling tower.
      Mr. Burns: Do'h. I'm as shocked as you are.
      (Cut to an office inside the power plant.)
      Government Inspector: Plutonium rod used as paperweight.
      Mr. Burns: Doh, now, that shouldn't be.
      (Cut to a work area inside the power plant, where a drop of nuclear waste falls from a leaking pipe and eats through an inspector's clipboard.)
      Mr. Burns: Yeah, well, that's always been like that.
