    • Show Title:  Moe performing a ski jump before he gets knocked over by the title, causing him to scream "Oh, no!"
      Billboard Gag:  Total Recall:  All items tainted. (with Apu pictured inside the Kwik-E-Mart in a danger red background as apparently all the food is bad)
      Chalkboard Gag:  April showers do not bring Matt Lauers.
      Couch Gag:  The usual couch gag switches to the Acme Filmworks short "Inside Homer" in which Homer, after getting hit by the car, is devoured by himself, as the animation form of the family and friends changes to a shadowy shade of black in a red background, as they travel inside the body of Homer, having various encounters along the way.  The sequence ends as the family travels up to Homer's brain via individual bubbles which pop, causing them to sit on it.  The sequence pans out back to the Simpsons animated world where the real family is seated on the couch watching TV.
