The shot cuts to Skinner asking about them. when it cuts back, all three rows are now faced and there are three extra action figure packages lying flat in the cardboard case. See more »

Quotes

Homer: Oh yeah, Marge? You said I wouldn't make any money. Well, I made a dollar while waiting for the bus.
Marge: While you were out making that dollar, you lost forty dollars by not going to work. And the plant called and said that if you don't come in tomorrow, don't bother coming in Monday.
Homer: WOOHOO! Four day weekend.
