Mountain of Madness

Homer fails to bond with Mr Burns.

Episode 4F10
Written by John Swartzwelder
Directed by Mark Kirkland

Premise: Mr Burns decides that his workers need to understand the true meaning of teamwork. He takes them all to snowy Mount Useful for a survivalist exercise. Homer is teamed up with his boss, and things start to go wrong before you can say 'avalanche'.

Features: Mr Burns, Smithers, Carl, Lenny.

Couch: Grampa is asleep on the sofa, folded out as a bed. The others fold it back up, him still inside, and sit upon it.


  • Burns decides to test his workers with a fire drill - the other options on his control panel include Meltdown Alert, Mad Dog Drill and Blimp Attack.

Look out for: Homer's advice on how to bring a bowl of dip towards yourself without standing up.

Notes: Mr Burns and Homer are thrown together, and begin to lose their minds. An inventive episode, with several memorable moments - the Simpsons' skidding car, the avalanche scene, Smithers' bitterness at Mr Burns picking Homer as his partner...
