After the family have visited the Happy Sumo sushi restaurant Homer is led to believe that he has eaten a poisonous fugu fish and will be dead by the next day. He therefore makes a list of all the things he must do such as making his peace with his father and insulting Burns,which gets him sacked. Preparing to die he falls asleep listening to a tape of Larry King reading the Bible but next morning wakes up to find he was not poisoned after all. Written by

The ending with Homer sitting on the couch eating pork rinds after saying he'd live life to the fullest is not the original ending. The original ending has Homer over at the Flanders' house barbecuing steaks as he promised he'd come only because he thought he'd be dead by then. Homer's father is also there still constantly telling Homer that he loves him and of course it's getting on Homer's nerves. Homer receives a phone call from the nuclear plant that he is to report to Mr. Burns' office at 9 am sharp tomorrow morning because he's in big trouble (for telling Burns to eat his shorts). Homer is now miserable. Marge walks up to Homer and says, "Homer, you are happy to be alive, aren't you? Aren't you?" Homer doesn't answer. This ending was said to be very good and fitting. However, it was deleted because it made the episode run too long. See more
Bart and Lisa both claim that sushi is raw fish. This is a common misconception; raw-fish dishes are sashimi, sushi (which can be made with raw fish, cooked fish, vegetables etc.) are vinegared-rice dishes. See more
[Marge suggests they go out for sushi
Sushi? Maybe this is just something one hears on the playground, but isn't that raw fish?
As usual, the playground has the facts right, but misses the point entirely.
