** This happens again between Homer and Smithers. After the fight between Smithers and Homer leads Homer to accidentally knock Burns out the window and put him in traction, Burns orders Smithers to make sure that Homer gets "exactly what he deserves." Smithers--who is now waiting on Burns hand and foot--does so by sending the Simpsons a large basket of fruit with the words "Thank You."

* AntagonisticOffspring: Mr. Burns does ''not'' get along with his 123-year-old mother. She apparently had an affair with President Taft which he's never forgiven her for, and he tried to pull her life support. Surprisingly, she not only pulled through, she lived for ''five decades.''

* RageBreakingPoint: Burns' barrage of insults finally cause Homer to snap and punch him (hard enough to actually believe for a moment that he had killed Burns). This in turn caused Burns to fear him to the point where he becomes self reliant.
* RiddleForTheAges: How did Burns' office start on fire?
