From Season 5


Episode Summary

Smithers attempts to cheer Mr. Burns as Bobo

When Mr. Burns was a child (before he was rich) he had a stuffed bear named Bobo. When he was taken away to live with his new rich family he left it behind. Now Mr. Burns is having dreams about Bobo and wishes to have the bear back. Burns' birthday is coming up and there is going to be a big banquet. Burns sees Homer at work being the class clown, so he invites Homer to do a comedy routine at the banquet. Mr. Burns is disgusted by Homer's material at the banquet and he was also disgusted by a performance by the Ramones, all he wants is his bear back. We now see what the bear has been up to over the past century and it ends up in a bag of ice that Homer picks up from the Kwik-E-Mart. When Homer discovers the bear he just tosses it to Maggie. Burns appear on the news to issue a reward for his lost bear, and when Homer finds out that the bear he gave Maggie is really Bobo he knows that he is sitting on a gold mine. Burns offers a million dollars, but when Homer tries to take the bear from Maggie she starts to cry. Homer sympathizes with his daughter and rejects Burns' offer. Burns then retaliates by stopping all the bear shipments and T.V channels to break Homer. The townspeople are now very angry and try to take the bear away from Maggie, but they too can't resist Maggies love for the bear. Mr. Burns finally gives in after unsuccessfully trying to steal Bobo, but Maggie gives him the bear anyways and he vows to be a good person for the rest of his life.


After being insulted by the Ramones:
Mr. Burns: Have the Rolling Stones killed.
Smithers: Sir, those aren’t–
Mr. Burns: Do as I say!


George Bush and Jimmy Carter are denied entry to Mr. Burns’ party for being one-termers.
Carter: You too huh? Well I know a good yoghurt place..?
Bush: Get away from me, loser.


Mr. Burns: Ah, yes. Naturally I can’t pay you much of a reward because I’m strapped for cash.
The ceiling above them collapses, and Mr. Burns is showered with gold coins and jewellery. A crown lands on his head.
Mr. Burns: As you can see, this old place is falling apart. But I’m sure we can come to an understanding.


Bart: Hey Apu, this bag of ice has a head in it!
Apu: Ooh, a head bag! Those are chock full of… heady goodness!


Mr. Burns: Smithers, I’m so happy! Something amazing has happened – I’m actually happy! Take a note. From now on, I’m only going to be good and kind to everyone.
Smithers: I’m sorry sir, I don’t have a pencil.
Mr. Burns: Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll remember it.
