Storyline

When Grampa needs a kidney transplant Homer is the obvious donor but he chickens out and runs away to sea. On board ship his fellow passengers are disgusted by his cowardice and throw him overboard. Drifting to the shore he sees a father and son bond over building a sand-castle and knows what he must do. The transplant is a success - though its circumstances are unusual,to say the least.

Homer Gets Cold Feet When Giving Grandpa A Kidney Transplant.

Okay From Here On In Most Of The Episodes Are Crap, What I Don't Get Is "What Was Meant To Be Funny?" Homer Leaving His Father For Dead? Ha Ha Ha, No I Got It The Period Of Time When Homer Realizes That Sacrificing His Kidney For His Father Is Worse Than Getting Blind F#ucking Drunk, I Know Homer Isn't Exactly The Most Sentimental Guy But He Isn't Like That. Doing This Makes Homer Come Off As Being Completely Heartless And Selfish. I Know That He Could Be Afraid Of Surgery But Its For His Fathers Life.

I Advise No One Watch This Or Any Episode Past This.
