-->'''Lisa:''' Screw college, let's
kids' college fund... only for ''Lisa'' to reply "Who needs college? Let's buy dune buggies!buggies!" '''''Huh?''''' This coming from the girl who, after helping put Mr. Burns back on his feet, refused her rightful million dollar advisor fee out of moral disapprobation for how he did it.

Homer (like practically every Springfielder who isn't a Flanders) waits until the last minute to file his tax return, and the IRS has jailtime in store for Homer -- unless Homer plays spy to retrieve a trillion-dollar bill that Mr. Burns was supposed to deliver to post-WorldWarII Europe to pay for reconstruction and stimulate the economy.

** Mr. Burns simply gives the dollar bill to the president of Cuba, who is an extremely corrupt man. When Mr. Burns asks him to give it back, the president just asks what, taking the money away and putting Mr. Burns, Smithers, and Homer on a meager rack in the middle of the ocean.

* InsaneTrollLogic: After Marge points out how Homer is lying on his taxes (as he rushes to complete them last minute), he immediately covers his ears.

* DiscoDan: Mr. Burns' out-of-touch-with-the-times tendencies are in full display here. He thinks Homer is a reporter for ''Collier's'', which had ceased publication in 1957 (although it was briefly revived in 2012), and while in Cuba, has no idea [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fulgencio_Batista Batista]] was no longer in power. He also identifies a taxi as "the new Packard they've been talking about."
