Homer accidentally attends a class on Successmanship, showing him how to be an assertive business man, as a result of which he tricks Burns into letting him take over the ownership of the power plant, in order to put right the many wrongs he sees in its running. However he is dismayed to learn that he must fire people, in addition to which he is forced to spend time away from the family. After Burns has unsuccessfully tried to kill him - by bricking him up in a wall - he happily returns the power plant to him. Written by

Mr. Burns, I've compiled list of safety recommendations for the plant.
Well, let me throw back my legs and pollute my britches with delight.
But the book said you'd applaud my initiative...
What book is that? "The Ape Who Wanted a Big Bonus"? Stop wasting my time and get out of my sight, you corn-fed man-cow!
