Homer Simpson: [Homer is buying a shirt] ... And I want the monogram to read "M-a-x P-o-w..."
Store Clerk: Sir, traditionally, mongrams are just your initials.
Homer Simpson: Max Power doesn't abbrieviate! In his name, each letter is as important as the one that preceded it. Maybe even *more* important... No, *as* important.
Store Clerk: Fine.
[She walks away with the shirt to apply the monogram]
Homer Simpson: And if there's any room left, add a bunch of exclamation points and a pirate flag!

Homer Simpson is Max Powers
21 October 2006 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

The Simpsons are watching the new "Mid-Season" on TV. What's brilliant about this episode is the inside jokes on Television series Producers. "Police Cops" parody of police TV shows was brilliant. One of the cool cops is named "Homer Simpson" and Homer is surprised by that. Soon the whole town admires Homer, not long enough the cool Homer Simpson cops is changed into a goofy fat character who is made fun off all the time. The town makes fun of Homer, who decides to battle his name - eventually loses and decides to change his name to Max Power. There is a great satire there on Bill Clinton as he is portrayed as a person who sleeps even with pigs. 8 out of 10.
