Following a hang-gliding accident Homer literally drops in on married film stars Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin,in their secluded hide-away where they go to escape the media. Homer starts to work for them but gives them away to press and fans,who besiege the house. The angry couple,along with visiting friend Ron Howard,are then involved in a chase after Homer who has stolen their property for a mobile movie museum. It all ends in a court order restraining Homer from going near any celebrities - though Ron Howard decides that the whole story can supply the plot for his next film. Written by

In the scene at the dinner table halfway through the episode, the doorway behind Homer's shoulder leads to the front foyer, and you can see the front door of the house. This is out of sync with the rest of the episodes of the series, where it leads to the kitchen. Later in the scene, the kitchen is seen through the doorway as usual. See more
Wow, Homer. You got everything. Even the Oscar polish!
Honey, don't you think you've polished that enough? You're taking the finish off.
When you win one, you can take care of it how you want.
