Full StoryEdit

Krusty is getting ready to do a stunt when two of his agents show up and explain that there is trouble with Krusty's newest product, Absolut Krusty. To make it popular, the agents insist that Krusty hold a tastemaker party at the Simpsons' house.

At the house, Homer, Marge and other adults are having a fantastic time until Mr. Burns shows up and scares the guests. Homer ends up saving the party by singing karaoke with Mr. Burns. As a result of this, Homer receives a hefty promotion to Account Manager.

On his first day of his new job, Homer is taught how to live the life of an accountant manager by Robert Marlowe, the person who Homer is replacing. Homer soon develops a depressed, drinking attitude and complains about how his new job is meaningless.

It soon becomes apparent to Marge that Homer is spending less time with the family because he now works longer. Marge insists that the family go on a vacation to help Homer realize that family comes first.

Homer is keen to the idea until he learns that Mr. Burns wants to go rafting with some of the other businessmen, a trip that Marge wanted Homer to join along with her and the kids. On the trip, Homer balances the two out until Marge takes notice and gets upset. Homer tries to explain to her his story, but the two rafts are almost at a steep waterfall. Homer can only save one raft, and soon saves the raft that Marge and the kids are on. Marlowe arrives and saves the raft that Mr. Burns is on.

Later that night, Homer tells Marge that he was demoted back to his old job Fireworks are soon seen, but they were from a fire at the Power Plant.

In the sub-plot, Lisa attempts to introduce Bart to classic novels. Bart struggles at first, but soon catches on and is soon forced to read Little Women to the school bullies.
