The Simpsons | Episode Guide | Season Three
Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk

Germanic efficiency means no play for Homer.

Episode 8F09
Written by Jon Vitti
Directed by Mark Kirkland
Special guest voice: Phil Hartman (as Lionel Hutz)

Premise: Or 'Burns Sells the Power Plant'. To some Germans, who have a highly developed work ethic. Bad news for Homer.

Features: Smithers, Mr Burns, Carl, Lenny, Grampa, Jasper, Moe, Barney, Lionel Hutz.

Couch: The Simpsons rush in - and back off as Santa's Little Helper rears up menacingly.


  • Homer owns a 5000-piece Battlestar Galactica jigsaw ('Based on the hit TV show!').

Notes for the Uneducated: 'Come here, I want you' were the first words spoken by Alexander Graham Bell on his invention, the telephone. Mr Burns quotes from the poem Barefoot Boy (With Cheek of Tan) by John Greenleaf Whittier.

Hello, can I speak to: Bea O'Problem.

That's Homer Simpson, sir: 'One of your workers from sector sieben-gruber.'

Notes: Homer in the land of chocolate and Smithers counselling Mr Burns with the aid of his sock-puppet friend, Mr Snappy the Alligator, are the highlights of this episode.
