Homer and Ned's Hail Mary Pass is the eighth episode of The Simpsons' sixteenth season. It aired on February 6, 2005 after Super Bowl XXXIX. It guest stars Tom Brady, LeBron James, Michelle Kwan, Yao Ming, and Warren Sapp.

Synopsis Edit

Homer starts to teach sport players his dances and is placed in charge of the halftime show of the next Super Bowl. Meanwhile, Ned creates a violent film about Bible stories, which makes Marge angry, so she stops him from displaying it.

Full Story Edit

The Simpsons go to Springfield Park and find it run down. They also find a charity carnival which is raising money to help the park. Bart wins first prize and then Homer beats him, going into his victory dance. Ned captures the dance and Comic Book Guy (revealing that his real name is Jeffrey "Jeff" Albertson) places it on his eBaum's World-esque website. Soon, the entire world has seen Homer's embarrassing dance.

However, major sports players ask Homer to teach them his dance. Meanwhile, Ned uses his camera to make a movie about Cain (Rod) and Abel (Todd). Everyone loves the film, except Marge, who found it to be way too bloody and horrific--although Lisa points out that Ned was probably just trying to stay true to the Bible, which, when you really get down it, is actually pretty violent. Mr. Burns decides to finance Ned's next film, "Tales of the Old Testament" (which has a running time of 800 minutes (over 13-hours), making it the third longest movie in the world). The bloodiness of the film angers Marge and she decides to protest Burns. Burns retorts, asking (in what is meant to be a rhetorical fashion) what they would use instead of his nuclear power. When everyone else mentions alternate forms of power they can use (such as solar and hydroelectric), Burns admits defeat and says the film will never be seen again.

Homer's advice has found criticism, but the football national committee loves them, as Homer's advice has raised ratings. They ask him to choreograph the Halftime show for Super Bowl XXXIX in Jacksonville Florida. He can't get any ideas and runs into Ned at church. Homer than gets an idea for the halftime show, which ends up being about Noah. This is hated and the crowd thinks they are trying to de-secularize the country.
