Also in this episode, Homer went overboard with car gadgets (e.g. a fax machine, DVD player and deep fryer) and accidentally drove into the sea due to obstructed vision. As a result, Homer's driving license was taken away and he became (even more) dependent on Marge, leading her to become resentful towards him. Homer later discovered the joys of walking and became fit, but was later immobilized by Marge, who ran him over with her car whilst carrying out Homer's errands. As the class and Principal Skinner recoiled in shock, Bart tried to swim away triumphantly, but was restrained by an octopus and beaten up by a sea turtle and hammerhead shark!

As a result, the Big Brother programme provided Bart with Tom, a Navy pilot who took him on many entertaining trips (e.g. motorbike riding and hand-gliding). Homer soon discovered this and attempted to get even with Bart by getting a "little brother" from the same agency. This boy was named Pepi.

The expiration date was scribbled out by Apu and placed on the bargain rack, where it was quickly snapped up by Homer. Homer was taken to hospital and was told that the cause of his illness was either the ingestion of spoiled food, or a voodoo curse, at which point Patty and Selma revealed a doll of Homer and claimed, "Hey, we've just been working the eyes". After being offered 5 pounds of frozen shrimp, Homer claimed that it wasn't frozen at all and that it smelled funny, but he then accepted the offer of a further 5 pounds.
