Go To



The opening has Bart and Lisa compare Halloween candy yields. Lisa has more than Bart, but that's not enough- she steals one of his. Bart starts choking Lisa, who breaks a pot on his head. He then tries to stab her with a poker, but gets Homer instead. Homer is very upset about this, and tries to attack them with a log from the fireplace. The log instead lands in Grandpa Simpson's lap, setting him on fire. He remarks that he's still cold. Homer then rolls the kids up in the carpet, and tries to bash them with a club. Marge comes in and disagrees with Homer's approach by using a shotgun. Homer's bloodstains on the wall behind him spell out ''Treehouse of Horror XIV''. Kang and Kodos are shown to be observing the Simpsons house and criticize the family for showing a Halloween special in November, when they've already set up for Christmas.

Professor Frink managed to succeed, but had to resort to replacing much of his father's organs with machinery (except his penis, which he can't find a substitute for). Confused over being revived in the 21st century and angry at his freakish nature, the reanimated Frink Sr. goes on a rampage to harvest organs from other living people, such as stealing the heart of Ned Flanders, ripping out the spine of Principal Skinner and stealing the ass off the Comic Books Guy (Who isn't miffed, but wanted his 'Jab-in-the-butt' tattoo back). The now organically-stuffed Frink Sr. is eventually confronted by Lisa, who admonished him by pointing out he won't be there to see his son winning a Nobel Prize. Horrified and ashamed that he chose his organ-lust over his own son, Frink Sr. stopped his rampage and rushed to Stokholm for the ceremony.

Professor Frink has won the Nobel Prize in Physics (Though Lisa Simpsons had to inform him of this due to the Nobel Prize committee calling the Simpsons household by mistake), and Frink expresses regret that his father won't be there to see it, having become estrangled over Frink Sr. - whom Frink described as a 'He-Man Scientist' who ''"Worked on the atom bomb by day, sleep with Marily Monroe at Night (And sold secrets to the Russia at lunch)"'' - being always constantly disappointed with him.

When Lisa offered to help patch up their differences, Frink revealed this would be more difficult due to Frink Sr. being dead (having tested a blood-based sun tan lotion while studying sharks), but is now resolved to revive him so he could finally watch his son be awarded and be proud of him.

Professor Frink is a MadScientist trying to build a corporeal body for the spirit of his dead father (played by none other than the inspiration for Professor Frink's character, Creator/JerryLewis). Of course, his reanimated father goes on a rampage, forcing Frink to stop him.

At the Nobel Prize ceremony, Professor Frink graciously accepted his award from hosts Dudley Herschbach and Jennifer Garner, but expresses his disappointment that his
father goes on won't be there to see it. His father would show up at that exact moment however, declaring he turned a rampage, forcing new leaf, reconciling with him to the applause of the other attendees (Including the Simpsons family). However, his organ-lust comes back with a vengeance due to seeing all the big juicy brains of the scientists and geniuses present, leading to another rampage which saw Frink Sr. stealing the brains and knowledge of those present. At the behest of the Simpsons, Frink was forced to stop him.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: For all his faults and questionable parenting, Frink's father deep down truly does love his son and was horrified when Lisa Simpsons called out his organ-stealing rampage by pointing out that he chose that over his son ''getting a Nobel Prize''. He immediately heads to Stockholm to reconcile with Frink.
