Treehouse of Horror VIII

The HΩmega Man
Mayor Quimby generates controversy after making an offensive joke about France. After refusing to apologize, the French president launches a neutron bomb directly into Springfield. Homer had been inspecting a bomb shelter he was considering buying from Herman's military surplus store. After the blast, Homer emerges from the shelter and seems to be the only person in town to have survived. Homer is soon confronted by a band of hostile Springfield citizens who have become mutants. Homer flees back home where he finds that his family survived the blast because their house was protected by its layers of lead paint. Marge and the children kill the mutants with shotguns that they were hiding behind their backs and the family head off to steal some Ferraris.

Fly vs. Fly
Homer buys a matter transporter from Professor Frink. That night, Bart, after experimentations involving the family pets, steps into the teleporter with a fly on his arm, thinking that he will become a mutant superhero. He comes out with his normal head, but with the fly's body whilst the fly has his body. Bart enlists the help of Lisa. However, she is chased by the fly and cornered in the kitchen. Bart tries to stop the fighting, but is quickly eaten by the fly. Lisa then sees this as an opportunity to undo the process and pushes the fly into the teleporter. Bart comes out the other end, now with his head back on his real body. Homer then pulls out an axe and angrily chases Bart for using the device.

Easy-Bake Coven
In 1649, the town is witness to many witch burnings. In the church, the townspeople try to figure out whom to condemn next. People begin accusing others and soon they erupt into chaos, until Marge intervenes. She tries to talk sense into the townspeople, but Moe accuses her of being a witch. Quimby assures her that she is entitled to due process which means she will be thrown off a cliff with a broomstick; if she is a witch she will be able to fly to safety, in which case the authorities expect her to report back for punishment. If she is not a witch, then she will fall to an honorable Christian death. After being shoved off the cliff, Marge flies up on the broomstick revealing that she really is a witch and vows to conquer the whole entire town. She returns to her sisters Patty and Selma. The sisters watch Ned and Maude Flanders talking about how the witches eat children, which gives them the notion to do just that. They knock on the Flanders' door and demand their sons, but before they leave, Maude offers the witches gingerbread men instead. The witches like these better than the children so they go to each house, getting goodies in exchange for not eating the children. As they fly off, the Sea Captain says that is how the tradition of Halloween and trick-or-treating started.

Homer Loves Flanders

Homer is distraught when he is unable to acquire tickets for an upcoming football game involving the Springfield Atoms. When Ned Flanders wins two tickets to the game on a radio competition, he invites Homer as his guest. Though reluctant because of his dislike of Flanders, Homer is desperate to attend the game and accepts. Ned pays for all the food and even gets the winning quarterback, Stan "The Boy" Taylor, to give the game ball to Homer. Overwhelmed by Ned's generosity and no longer ashamed to be associated with him, Homer becomes friends with Ned and his family. Homer begins acting overly grateful and annoys Ned and his family to no end by interrupting their family time together. The situation is not helped after Homer follows Ned to a homeless shelter for charity work; Homer becomes bored with Ned's slowly dishing soup for the homeless and takes over, however his impatience is mistaken for generosity by a newspaper photographer, and the resulting article declares Homer a hero. Homer's popularity with the townspeople surges and eclipses Ned's reputation. The Flanders family and the Simpson family go on a camping trip, but the families do not get along. When the Simpsons initiate a food fight, Ned later tells his wife that he has grown to hate Homer.

Upon returning home, Homer remains oblivious to Ned's animosity. He arrives at the Flanders's house expecting to play golf, but Flanders and his family get in their car and race off without him. Pulled over by Chief Wiggum for speeding, Ned takes a sobriety test as disapproving townspeople watch, and his good name is destroyed after Wiggum announces that Ned is "high as a kite" (even though he simply fell over). At church, when the entire congregation bow their heads in prayer, Homer inhales very loudly through his nose, causing Ned to finally snap and yell at Homer. This alarms the congregation who denounce Flanders as bitter and jealous, but nevertheless, Homer sticks up for Ned and everyone apologizes to him for not getting the full story and misjudging him. Ned is touched at Homer for sticking up for him and the two reconcile their friendship.

Shocked, Lisa and Bart, thinking that everything would be back to normal by now, consider that this may be the end of their wacky adventures. However, the following week, Homer once again hates Ned and everything is back to normal, much to Lisa and Bart's relief. The family then spends the night in a haunted house (which formerly belonged to Homer's Great Uncle Boris), and are heard screaming after the lights go out.

So many tournaments, so little time
