Full Story Edit

Homer becomes obsessed with a 1980s family sitcom and starts acting like the show's father. Acting like it, he does not give Bart a mini-bike he wants. Bart then realizes that he could sell secrets about the nuclear power plant with other countries. He agrees to sell them to China in exchange for a mini-bike. To gain access to the Nuclear Plant's PCs, Bart begins doing typical father-son activities with Homer, eventually leading up to Homer bringing Bart to work. When Homer falls asleep, Bart goes around the plant downloading information onto a USB-flash drive. After Bart leaves the flash drive with the downloaded data at the Zoo and takes the Bike, Homer reveals to him that he did buy him the Minibike too, for being such a good child. Bart, feeling bad for betraying his country rushes back to the zoo in attempt to recover the flash drive. There he meets the Chinese agents again who are threatening to kill him if he does not collaborate. Homer steps in and offers himself as he has a lifetime of Nuclear experience. In China, he is leading the construction of a nuclear power plant, which explodes right after the grand opening ceremony.
