After being attacked by crows who peck at his eyes Homer briefly becomes addicted to medical marijuana but manages to kick the habit before Mr. Burns asks for his help in preparing a speech for an important meeting. When Mr. Burns appears to have drowned in his bath Homer works the 'corpse' like a marionette to convince the gathering that Burns is fit and well. The jerking movements revive Burns and disaster is avoided. Written by

On American TV, this episode was originally rated TV-PG for violence (V). The rating was later changed to TV-14 due to the heavy references to marijuana smoking, along with the violence (Homer getting pecked by crows, a teenage Homer getting bitten in the crotch by a drug dog, Homer bleeding "rainbows" as he shaves himself under the influence, and Mr. Burns bleeding while being used as a marionette).
