Mr. Burns replaces all of Springfield Power Plant's employees with robots but decides to keep Homer as the sole human worker. With unemployment at an all-time high and mechanical arms operating the workplace, Springfield becomes a dismal and humorless place. But when Homer's machine-programmed peers start to turn on the community and his former real-life employees come to the rescue, they all realize that robots can't replace human friends. Written by

While waiting in line to have his blood test at work, Homer prays for good results and then begins to "...mumble in a religious fashion. Dear God. Oh Lord. ...Oh Lord Almighty." and when he reaches "...abba-dabba-dabba-dabba" nonsense, you can hear someone in the recording booth let out a wheezing laugh. This may have been ad-lib material from the actor, Dan Castellaneta

And here I was, waiting 'til you slept to rob you of your copper.
