The Simpsons give a lift to a man called Larry who is hitching to Springfield after discovering that he is Burns's long-lost son. Burns is initially happy to see him but tires of Larry's uncouth slobbishness and Larry is befriended by Homer. He decides that Larry might win back his father's love by means of a fake kidnapping. The plan is exposed but Burns forgives Larry, who then goes home to his wife and children. Written by

Per the title, the quote "Burn, baby, burn!" is attributed to William Epton Jr. who was a member of the Vice Chairman of the Progressive Labor Party and a devoted Maoist African-American communist activist who advocated violence to bring about social change. The anti-Vietnam movement and student radicals adopted the slogan as riots occurred in American cities and violence erupted on college campuses in the turbulent Sixties. See more
