Mr. Burns decides to help get the workers at the Power Plant in shape by implementing a mandatory ten-minute morning calisthenics program. Homer, loathing the thought of daily exercise, notices that Charlie, a fellow employee, gets to work from home following an injury, and immediately begins [[ZanyScheme scheming]] to gain this "perk" for himself. A bit of research reveals that anyone who weighs three hundred pounds or more qualifies as disabled, and he quickly realizes that he can use one of his greatest loves--[[BigEater eating]]--to achieve his dream of working from home (which he [[ImagineSpot imagines]] will consist of using his usual terminal while Marge flatters him and Flanders suffers from the rat race. [[BackAlleyDoctor Dr. Nick]] advises Homer to eat from the "neglected food groups"--including "whipped, congealed, and choco-tastic"--to reach his goal weight.

\nMr. Burns rewards Homer (who's still stuck in the tank while being decontaminated) with a medal and a promise to grant any request he may make. Homer, realizing all of the trouble his excess weight has caused, asks his boss to make him thin again. Mr. Burns vows to do so, and it seems like a TrainingMontage will soon begin--but given that Homer is too fat to do even a single sit-up, the exasperated Burns [[CuttingTheKnot decides to pay for liposuction instead]].

Homer becomes morbidly obese so he can work from home and avoid the daily workout regimens implemented by Mr. Burns, but while Homer is living large, Marge and the rest of the family worry about Homer's health and how long he can keep up this scam.

[[BackAlleyDoctor Dr. Nick]] advises Homer becomes to eat from the "neglected food groups"--including "whipped, congealed, and choco-tastic"--to reach his goal weight.

One ShoppingMontage of [[NutritionalNightmare disgustingly fattening foods]] later, Homer has begun packing on the pounds at an alarming rate, worrying Marge and Lisa, but earning Bart's approval. Homer eventually [[TemporaryBulkChange tops out at 315 pounds]], qualifying him as disabled (and requiring him to wear a flowered muumuu and "fat guy hat"). True to his word, Mr. Burns installs a computer terminal in the Simpsons' home, tasking Homer with the duty of repeatedly venting the plant's nuclear gas to prevent a core meltdown. After some [[HopelessWithTech initial confusion]], Homer discovers that all he needs to do is press the "Y" button to complete the assignment. At first, things seem wonderful--especially after Homer rigs up a drinking bird to hit the button for him--but he [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor soon discovers]] that being
morbidly obese so isn't what he can work dreamed it would be. Marge admits that she no longer finds him sexually attractive, the general public bullies him, and he cannot enjoy things such as a trip to the movies, as the cinema lacks the ability to accommodate him.

Upon returning home
from home and avoid the daily workout regimens implemented by Mr. Burns, but while an unauthorized break, Homer is living large, Marge discovers that the drinking bird has tipped over, and the rest gas build-up has reached a critical point that requires a manual release. With his [[BeyondTheImpossible fingers too fat to dial a telephone]], Homer begins a mad dash to the power plant, eventually commandeering an ice cream truck to reach the site in time. [[TooDumbToLive All of the family worry about employees are too excited at the thought of ice cream to listen to Homer's health warnings]], and how long he can keep up this scam.
[[FailedASpotCheck somehow miss the leaking gas tank that's ten feet away]], so he's forced to climb the vent to reach the manual shutdown button. Unfortunately, Homer's newfound flab [[RealityEnsues shatters the thin ladder leading to the button]], and it looks like all is lost...but thankfully, his massive girth is just big enough to plug the tank and prevent the catastrophe.

* TakeThat: To Faye Dunaway, who had previously refused a guest role on the show, so in revenge, the writers stuck her in a goofy film that would be considered underneath her caliber of work (that Homer tried to see) called ''Honk If You're Horny!'' with Pauly Shore.
