He Loves To Fly And He D'ohs

When Homer saves Mr. Burns from drowning in a mall fountain, Burns flies Homer to Chicago for dinner via his personal jet. Homer is spoiled silly while flying the friendly skies and discovers a new obsession -- luxury planes. After the trip, Burns tells Homer that he will never again fly in his jet. Seeing Homer depressed, Marge hires a life coach to groom Homer into a confident person who could get hired by a company that uses luxury jets. Homer gets an interview with a hot sauce company but fails to impress. Embarrassed, he lies to Marge and the kids. But Bart discovers his charade and convinces Homer to come clean. Homer arranges to break the news to Marge aboard a private jet, but when the pilot loses control of the plane, the plane lands in the ocean and they are rescued. Bart suggests that Homer quit his “job” since private planes are obviously unsafe, giving Homer an easy out from having to tell the truth to the rest of the family.

Midnight Towboy

Feeling that Maggie is too clingy, Marge hires a counselor to teach her a child care method (C.R.I.E.) that will help Maggie become more independent.

Meanwhile, after Homer goes in search of milk in Mookington and ends up having his car towed by a guy named Louie, Louie invites Homer to be the tow guy for Springfield on one condition: that Homer stays off of Louie ’s turf. When he gets too “tow happy,” the residents of Springfield set Homer up to look like he’s towing outside of the Springfield territory, and Louie throws Homer in his basement along with half a dozen other tow guys from outside Mookington. With Homer missing, the newly independent Maggie leaves home unnoticed and springs Homer from Louie’s basement. Homer thanks Maggie with a hug, insisting that even super babies need hugs once in a while. They then return home where Maggie walks back into Marge’s arms for all the love, affection and dependence she used crave.
