Fridge: The Simpsons S 5 E 15 Deep Space Homer
- Why, in God's name, does Burns give the award to an inanimate carbon rod??
- Rule of Funny and it shows how Burns favors material goods over human lives. Remember in "Homer's Enemy" when he wanted the TV dog as his new vice president?
- It's also a part of the running gag of Mr. Burns not knowing who Homer Simpson is (only Smithers doesn't address that Homer works at the plant and is the last person who has yet to receive the Worker of the Week award).
- Why Homer shouted Nooooo!! ? Because it was the same space shuttle he saw on TV that he desperately tried to avoid watching.
