Recap: The Simpsons S 14 E 15 CE Doh
To impress Marge, Homer becomes the CEO of the nuclear plant by releasing a canary (the real head of the nuclear plant) and demanding that Mr. Burns give him a promotion.
- Call Back: As Mr. Burns shows Smithers the plant's hierarchy, Homer is outranked by the inanimate carbon rod from "Deep Space Homer."
- Also, a crossed photograph of Frank Grimes.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Mr. Burns had a canary to serve as a fall guy to be arrested for his crimes. He explains to Smithers that tycoons like him have been doing it years—for example, Standard Oil was once owned by a half-eaten breakfast.
