Armed with a self-help book given him by Marge his teaching them the fringe benefits accorded Western workers gives him a godlike status and eventually the family must rescue him,'Apocalypse Now' style before Burns declares the experiment a disaster and send him home. Selma and Patty kidnap their 'McGyver' heart-throb Richard Dean Anderson who enjoys using his old plotlines to keep escaping from them until they are finally sick of him. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The Hindi song that appears during the end of the episode "Pal Bhar Ke Liye Koi Hamen Pyaar Kar Le" sung by the late Kishore Kumar is taken from the Bollywood movie 'Johny Mera Naam (1970)' See more »

Goofs

India and the US are roughly 12 hours offset from each other; it is unlikely for Homer to talk to the kids during the daylight hours (India) as they would, likely, be asleep in bed. See more »

Quotes

[Homer is debarking from an airplane in India]
Homer Simpson: This is India? Where's the University of Notre Dame? Wrigley Field? Dodger Dogs?
Indian woman: You stupid American. You're confusing India with Indiana, Indiana with Illinois and the Cubs with the Dodgers.

Nutshell ;This is perfect episode for out of US
16 August 2011 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

You might say why this episode is excellent? If you r living in third national like India,They show outside of US and they didn't kidding with that country.I mean Im Turk When I've seen episode in Rio i was upset about it.I think this is the episode about chancing in looking view of 3rd nation.

Also Richard Dean Anderson played in that episode.Im fan of Sg-1 and sci-fi.I think he changed sci-fi he gave it humour.i think he gave inspiration to Big bang theory(Sci-fi fans in comedy series).

All in All, I mean that episode may not be funniest episode in Simpson's but it is about changing mentality also it has a great guest.
