After Maggie hits Homer in the head with the hammer, we see Homer frantically grab a cloth to try to keep his balance. Unfortunately it does no good and he still falls down anyway. Along side he also pulls the green cloth down as well as an open can of red paint that spills. In a close up view we see the red paint pour out and touch Homer's shoe as it goes down the garage drain. The camera then shows an overhead view of the garage and we see the spilled red paint going down the garage drain, but it is nowhere at all near any part of Homer's body. See more
