Blowfish aftermath scene

05. Blowfish

Never has Van Halen’s honest tune, “Hot For Teacher,” had a more possibly fatal outcome. The master sushi chef at The Happy Sumo is busy shtupping Edna Krabappel, leaving his apprentice in charge of Homer’s exotic blowfish order. When his boss returns, mighty satisfied I might add, he finds that his pupil might have butchered the poisonous fish incorrectly, thus cutting short our over-eater’s life. Homer takes new stock in his final minutes on earth, savoring every moment, appreciating his family as never before — that is, until he survives longer than his 22-hour deadline — and then he’s back on his beloved couch again.
