Homer's Adventures Through the Windshield Glass


- Aah!
- What? Whatcha
(HUSHED): Who the hell are these people?

Oh, my pâté de campagne!
My "Kick me" sign!
Oh, how could she? Why would she?
So many feelings, all of them anger.
Must drive them away.
Rage belongs on the road.
Where the hell's my phone?
Got to express my rage to
the person who enraged me:
my wife.
Marge, I am so, so,
so, so angry.
Anger emoji, skull emoji,
eggplant emoji, because I hate eggplant.
Fire, fire, fire. Aah!
A fire-fire-fire hydrant!
Okay, Homer, stay calm.
Your seat belt will save you.
Thank God I still got my airbag.
- Safety first.
- Hmm?
Well, at least
I got shatter-proof glass.
Oh, it's shattering!
I'm soaring through
the air like an angel,
or a beautiful loogie.
How very majestic the
world looks from up here.
The sky, the ocean,
Bart's bald mommy is going to die.
That's her problem. (LAUGHS)
FEMALE VOICE: Homer? Yo, big man.
Now's not the time to chill.
What? Who the hell was that?
It's me, Maggie's Happy Little Elf doll.
Oh, yeah.
She calls you Goobie-Woo.
Of course she does. That's my damn name.
Okay. Sheesh, Goobie-Woo.
But how are you talking right now?
That's a little complicated.
You see,
I'm a projection of your psyche,
and you're in the middle of
a very traumatic life event.
Traumatic? What do you mean?
I feel great.
Homer. Homer,
what you're currently experiencing
is called post-traumatic elation.
- Is that like Post Raisin Bran?
Damn it, man,
you are literally in the middle
of a car accident!
What?! Oh, right.
Let me lay this out.
You and me are gonna
use this car ejection
for some self-reflection,
okay, my brother?
And that journey begins with
finding the source of your anger.
Now, gaze into that
little piece of glass.
I need a safe-deposit box.
Want to know why?
Well, that's why I got into
banking in the first place,
for the thrilling stories.
Well, this morning, I was on my break
- at the nuclear power plant
- Uh-huh.
so I went and got
myself a bag of chips.
Potato chips.
I feel like I'm at a
story slam right now.
They were so delicious
and salty and chompy,
and before long, they were all gone.
- No.
- Almost.
Oh, there's a twist?
But then I pulled out this,
a chip that looks exactly
like John Travolta.
And that's why I need
a safe-deposit box,
to protect this treasure forever.
Oh, don't study opera staging
in Vienna, they said.
Work in a bank, they said.
Mm-hmm. Mr. Simpson,
it looks like your family
already has a safe-deposit box.
Your wife rented it out
over a decade ago.
- Wow, you've got a wife.
- Wha?
Now, I'm not supposed to show you this,
but lucky for you right
now I'm super high.
"Last will and testament"?
Written by Clarence Bouvier,
your father-in-law.
Marge's dad left a will?
He never told me about that
in the four conversations we ever had.
It says here he set up a trust
to pay Marge Simpson,
ooh, $1,000 a month.
A thousand dollars? What? No.
No! What?!
No! No? What?
And I can confirm that
your wife has been
receiving that money every
month since her father died.
Marge has been getting
all that money for years,
and she never told me about it.
I-I don't know what to feel.
In these situations,
many of our customers
opt for extreme rage.
Well, I hate to just
follow the crowd, but
So that's why I was so mad.
And that's why I'm even angrier now.
For all these years,
Marge has been hiding money from me.
It's a blatant act of, of, uh
The term is "financial infidelity."
And I can see how you'd be angry.
Oh, thank you.
- But it's the wrong emotion to feel.
- Damn it.
Homer, I'm gonna help you
work through this anger
so you can find peace.
Aw, work? That sounds like work.
How much time do I have?
I'd say about point-three seconds
judging by how fast you're flying
towards that tree.
- Aah!
- Oh, my God, we're airborne.
- Whoa!
I don't know which one
I'm more upset about,
that my wife has been keeping
a secret mountain of cash from me,
or that I'm about to die in a stupid,
violent car wreck.
Don't make me choose, Goobie-Woo.
Homer, you're spiraling.
Of course I'm spiraling.
I'm literally flying through the air.
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Listen, I know you're feeling
all the feels right now,
but we're getting closer to
the real source of your rage.
What? I'm sorry, I'm eating my feelings.
Bad Homer.
Spit out that food, and those feelings.
(GRUNTS) What was Marge
spending that money on?
And why did she keep it
a secret from everybody?
LISA: Um, not everybody, Dad.
I hate to say it, but we've known about
Mom's secret cash for quite some time.
Yeah, that's why I laugh
myself to sleep every night.
What? And here I've been
worried sick about
your night giggles.
Let me tell you how we found out.
I was blowing off steam one day
and I saw that Mom was
getting $100,000 a month!
LISA: Then I explained to
Bart how decimal points work.
Then we asked Mom about it,
and she admitted
the whole thing.
So then tell me,
why did she keep the money a secret?
I don't think you can handle it.
- I can handle it.
- Okay.
The reason is
Your father is an ape-faced butt monster
who eats booger
sandwiches and also sucks.
Why, you little unreliable narrator!
Ow! Glass is sharp.
Oh, even my kids knew I was
being fiscally unmanned.
got to go, ape face.
See you at your funeral.
We'll be the kids running
around in our nice clothes,
poignantly unaware
of the finality of death.
Oh, that tree
can't get here fast enough.
Okay, Michael Phelps,
don't swim to your death just yet.
Don't you want to find
out what Marge been
spending the money on?
Oh, you bet I do.
Well, that's what I thought.
Give me your best guess.
I want to give her the
benefit of the doubt,
but I can't help but imagine the worst.
See you later. I'm off to earn
our only source of income.
He's gone. Robo-butler,
bring me a caviar hoagie.
This is so expensive.
Mmm. Mmm-mmm.
You know what else I'm paying for?
Sexy handymen doing
chores around the house.

Whew, Homer, I hesitate to ask,
but why does your brain think
that's what Marge is
doing with the money?
Because it's what I'd do.
Except the repairmen would
be my favorite rock stars:
Kiss, Bon Jovi, Men at Work,
because of their excellent work ethic.
- Stop!
Your wife is a much better
person than you are,

money in a very different way.

- Whoo!
Thank God, I don't have
to be mad at Marge anymore.
If anything,
you should be mad at Marge's dad.
- Huh?
- Oh, snap, I shouldn't have said that.
"Oh, snap"?
What do you mean, "Oh, snap"?
Oh, snap, why not? What do you know?
Nothing. And closure! (CHUCKLES)
Closure-closure, closure-closure.
Oh, no. I got to know
what Marge's dad did,
or said or rapped.
Aha, and I've got the
magical footage right here.
Don't look at it! You've come so far.
Inner peace has almost
defeated your outer rage.
You've got to be strong, man.
So if I look at that piece of glass,
I could change my fate
and perhaps even risk my very soul?
Well, I'm cool with that.
What the hell?!
But, Dad, Homer has a good heart,
and I'm going to marry him.
Oh, honey, this Simpson fellow
will never provide for you.
He has jackass written all over him.
Marge, do you have any turpentine?
It's not coming off.
His friends did that after
he fell asleep at a party.
Homer's the sweetest
person I've ever met.
Every time I look into his eyes,
I see someone who will
never stop loving me.
Oh crap.
Look, I'm gonna leave you
something special in my will
to make sure you're okay,
because you've found
every father's worst nightmare:
true love with a true loser.
Loser? But I thought
Marge's dad liked me.
He was always warning me about
doors hitting my butt on the way out.
How dare he emasculate me
from beyond the grave?
Uh-huh. I told you not to look at it.
Wait, how could I remember that talk
between Marge and her dad
if I wasn't around to see it?
You can see stuff like that
'cause you're a ghost now.
You dead.
I tried to tell you,
and you didn't want to hear me.
You was eating your
feelings and carrying on.
Goobie-Woo knows what's good.
I'm gonna see this in every dream now.
Oh, my God, I'm in heaven now.
It's so huge, so majestic.
So red.
Ooh, it's one of heaven's
goaty-footed angels.
And look at that giant fork.
Probably for eating delicious,
heavenly s'mores.
Think again, pally.
- Ow!
Wait a second, I'm in hell? But why?
Because you committed
the deadly sin of wrath
against your father-in-law.
So what? Everybody hates
everybody these days.
Plus the rest of the seven deadly sins
all in the last half
second of your life.
- ♪
Whoo-hoo! I hit for the cycle!
Okay, so this is where you check in
for your eternal punishments.
- Who are they?
That's our exchange program
we have with heaven.
We send them people condemned for sins
that aren't sins anymore.
All aboard for those damned
for being gay between 5000
BC and like ten years ago.
- It's about damn time.
Make way for Miss Thing!
former residents of heaven
who are now considered
bad by today's standards.
Wherefore art I in hell?
I gave the world Othello.
Yeah, and performed it in blackface.
Get outta here.
I didn't even actually write the plays!
Okay, Mr. Simpson,
looks like your punishment is
to be boiled alive for all eternity
- in a lake of blood.
- All right.
Just wait over there.
Oh, there's a line?
Hey, do you mind if I go ahead of you?
Yeah, in fact, I do mind.
Oh, for Oh (GROANING)
Fine, take this buzzer.
When we're ready for you,
it'll electrocute you
and set your torso aflame!
I know how buzzers work.
Ooh, poker.
Oh, boy, I got-a the best hand.
I'm-a gonna win.
Ha! Nice bluff, Benito.
Marge's dead dad!
You thought I wasn't worthy of Marge.
I'll kill you and send
you to super-hell!
Hey, hey, behave yourself.
We have standards here.
Shut up, Tom Selleck!
What Marge's dad did
to me was super-sucky.
It's probably the
reason he ended up here.
Actually, he ended up here
thanks to an unrelated
check forging scheme.
Checks. Remember them? (CHUCKLES)
Oh, crazy.
Homer, uh, let's you and me take a walk.
Walking? Oh, this really is hell.
- I want to show you something.
Wow, another screen?
Yeah, this is hell. Screens everywhere.
Mom, Dad, I'd like you to meet Mercer.
He designs board games.
Oh, like Parker Brothers?
(LAUGHS) Yeah, like Parker Brothers. No.
You actually play that
mainstream corporate garbage?
You're so lucky to be meeting me today.
Seriously, I am so jealous of you.
Check this out.
My new game is gonna be a huge hit.
It combines the
Stratego-ness of Stratego,
the implicit sexual tension of Twister,
and the hard-driving
whimsy of Tic-Tac-Toe.
It's called Side-gammon.
Who's up for a game? Huh?
Oh, come on!
It's super complicated!
You'll be out before you know it,
and you'll be humiliated!
I have to go yell something
into your washer-dryer.
He really is brilliant,
and he has a good heart.
- I'm going to marry him.
I'm the Mozart of board games
and novelties!
Why, that guy's a total loser.
I don't want him to marry Lisa.
Wait, I was never as bad as him, was I?
(CHUCKLES) Actually, there was a time
when I would have
preferred that guy to you.
Plus, you know what?
We got an advance copy of Side-gammon,
- and it's not bad.
- Oh, my God.
I'm starting to see things
from another point of view.
Your point of view.
I didn't even know
other people had those.
You were just worried about Marge,
the way I'd be worried about Lisa.
No matter how old and dead we get,
we just want to make sure
our little girls are okay.
- D'oh!
Homer Simpson, we are now ready
to boil you for eternity
in a lake of blood.
Wow, suddenly
that doesn't sound so good.
Eh, you just had an epiphany, pally,
which means you get
to go back to your life.
It's a dumb rule, but we need
a two-thirds vote to change it.
Which is also a dumb rule.
What can I say? Hell ain't perfect.
Homer, you're getting another chance.
Now, get the hell out of hell
and go back to my daughter.
You heard the man.
Let's get your ass home.
- Damn, that hurt.
You died and went to hell.
Ralph knows.
Thank you, Goobie-Woo.
I learned more tumbling through the air
than I ever did tumbling
through my life.
- (GASPS) Dad!
- Homer!
Goobie-Woo. (GIGGLES)
Oh, Homie, thank God you're okay.
Homer, I have to ask you,
why did you send me that angry text?
It doesn't matter.
I have since set aside my own ego
and learned to savor my many blessings.
And you, my darling,
are foremost amongst them.
I don't understand a thing he's saying.
He seems to be in a lot of pain.
Can't you give him something?
Absolutely not.
No can do till we get to the hospital.
(SIGHS): Ah.
I guess I can go another
month without a new purse.
That's the end, bitch ♪
That's the end, bitch ♪
That's the end. ♪
That's the end. (LAUGHS)
You see,
I'm a projection of your psyche,
and you're in the middle of
- a very traumatic life event.
- LISA: And cut.
Now we should move on to the part
where your character slaps Dad.
Wait a minute,
isn't that just a sound effect?
No, it's got to be real. Right, Lizzo?
Uh, seems a bit excessive to me,
but, hey, pshh, you're the kid.
You know what? If you're uncomfortable,
- you don't have to do it.
I could do it for you. And action!
- Maybe a few more for safety?
Whose safety?
(GRUNTS) I don't feel safe!
- Ow. Ow.
Why, you little
- This beat is fire.
Yo, Lisa, how 'bout I get Sasha Flute,
you get your saxamaphone,
and we, uh, jam?
I'd love to.
- Ow. Ow.
Ow. Stop that.
Ow. Ow.
Ow. Ow. Ow.
Why, you little
