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.

Tropes:

  • Call Back: As Mr. Burns shows Smithers the plant's hierarchy, Homer is outranked by the inanimate carbon rod from "Deep Space Homer."
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Mr. Burns had a canary to serve as a fall guy to be arrested for his crimes. He mentioned that Standard Oil temporarily used a half-eaten breakfast for a similar scheme.
