Homer, Moe, Lenny, and Carl share a winning lottery ticket, but when Carl makes off with the winnings, the others follow him to his country of origin, Iceland, where they learn why Carl would abscond with their lottery winnings.

!! Tropes:
* AnimeLand: Bart and Lisa watch a show, "Ki-Ya Karate Monsters", that is clearly intended as a parody of the genre.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Lenny takes Carl's betrayal very hard and attacks him. Immediately {{Lampshaded}} by Moe.
-->'''Moe:''' When the nice ones snap, it's always a good show.
* CallBack: Carl has metion being from Iceland in the the episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS14E16ScuseMeWhileIMissTheSky 'Scuse Me While I Miss the Sky]]"
* ClearTheirName: Carl uses the money to clear the dishonour of his family name by buying the missing page of the saga that depicts them as cowards who abandoned their post only to find that his ancestors were actually worse than what the saga depicts; they were cowards who [[LesCollaborateurs worked ''with'' the Vikings who pillaged Iceland]].
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Homer watches female tennis and describes it as "soft-core tennis".
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Homer doesn't know why people laugh upon the mention of the number 69 (and for those who don't get it at home, "69" is a sex position where both partners give each other oral sex).
* ImplausibleDeniability: Homer and Lenny deny Carl's betrayal for a very long time, despite all signs to the contrary.
* InTheBlood: Betraying friends is in Carl's [[SubvertedTrope adopted]] blood.
* RealMenHateAffection: Discussed, the gang doesn't know much about themselves since as guys they don't talk about their problem or stories, which is why Carl betrayed them: he never considered them friends but just people he has barside conversations with. This hurts Lenny deeply to the point he tries killing Carl.
* NationalStereotypes:
** TruthInTelevision Iceland is portrayed as a country with a small population, though caricatured here to the point that all inhabitants can apparently crowd together in one spot instantly without anyone missing.
** References are made to geysers, Icelandic sagas, Music/{{Bjork}}, Viking invasions, the Allied Forces occupation during WorldWarTwo for strategic reasons, the Northern Lights, fairies, elves, trolls, Music/SigurRos, the 2008-2011 economical collapse and their former lesbian Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir (who was, in fact, the very first openly lesbian head of government in the world).
* NegativeContinuity: The Icelanders seem to have forgotten that it was Homer who caused their country to go bankrupt in the Season 21 episode "The Bob Next Door".
* SpecialGuest: Music/SigurRos plays the closing theme.
* SuspectIsHatless: When the guys ask around for Carl in Iceland.
-->'''Moe:''' Say, have you seen our friend? He's about this tall, wears a jacket, has no visible tattoos...\\
'''Homer:''' Just say he's black.\\
'''Moe:''' ''You'' say he's black!
* VacationEpisode: The Simpsons travel to Iceland.
