After being attacked by crows who peck at his eyes Homer briefly becomes addicted to medical marijuana but manages to kick the habit before Mr. Burns asks for his help in preparing a speech for an important meeting. When Mr. Burns appears to have drowned in his bath Homer works the 'corpse' like a marionette to convince the gathering that Burns is fit and well. The jerking movements revive Burns and disaster is avoided.
