After nearly drowning in his bathtub, Mr. Burns realizes that, [[FridgeHorror if he did die, there'd be no one to carry on his wealth and legacy]][[note]]for those who ask, "What about Smithers?", Mr. Burns explains that his faithful assistant will be buried alive with him[[/note]], since he has no children[[note]]at least not until season eight's "Burns Baby Burns"[[/note]], so he holds an audition for his next heir. When all the kids (including Bart and Lisa) lose out, Bart vandalizes Burns' house and wins a place in the old man's heart...but the more he stays with Mr. Burns, the more The Simpsons fear that Bart is becoming Burns-like.

** Also, it seems that Mr. Burns has rearranged his desk to line up with the trap-door after [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E3HomerGoesToCollege the painters had moved it]]

* BadBadActing: The actors that Mr. Burns hired to impersonate Homer, Marge and Lisa Simpson were like this, with deadpan delivery and off-sounding voices, most notably "Homer" saying "B'oh!" (rather than "D'oh.")



* LatexPerfection: This is how the actors Mr. Burns hires are made up to look like Homer, Marge and Lisa Simpson, including Lisa actually being an old male Estonian dwarf DisguisedInDrag.

However, while their disguises were physically flawless, their attempts to act like the Simpsons family [[BadBadActing weren't so good]].
