Bart congratulates Homer on weighing 263 lbs, a new record, which Homer is annoyed at. Marge brings in "some nice fluffy towels right out of the dryer", but then stops to ask what Bart is doing. He says he's reading the scale as Homer, currently eating a cookie, can't see past his belly. Marge is disappointed as he's been snacking again, and he asked him not to eat the cookies in the cookie jar. He protests saying he couldn't resist those little bow ties with pink frosting on the top. Marge tells him they were actually hourglasses for Patty and Selma.
