Homer moves the family to a new town after he receives a better job offer, at a better nuclear power plant, but Homer is oblivious to the fact that his new boss is a James Bond-style super villain who is out to rule the world.
One fine sunny morning, Mr. Smithers is walking to work when a mysterious black car pulls up and a women offers him a job. Smithers refuses, but later Homer accepts the job at Globex Corporation and the family decide to move to Cypress Creek. Homer meets his new boss, Hank Scorpio and takes to him really well, and it soon becomes apparent that he has a do-nothing job completely suited to his skills. Unfortunately, the rest of the family isn't enjoying their new surroundings. Marge finds her new house requires a fraction of the maintenance of their old dump, and is hopelessly bored. Bart gets put in the remedial class at school with some really messed up kids, and Lisa is allergic to all the area's plant life.
Back at work, Homer is oblivious that his boss is in fact an evil genius bent on world domination. But Homer enjoys his work. It's the best job he's ever had, and Hank Scorpio honestly shows an interest in Homer's hopes and dreams. However, his family tells him that they want to move back to Springfield. Stuck with a difficult choice, Homer decides to visit Scorpio at his office. Homer arrives in the middle of an assault by government forces on Hank's fortress, similar to the James Bond film You Only Live Twice.
After a conversation with his boss, Homer reluctantly decides to resign. He slowly walks out in the middle of a raging battle. When the Simpsons return to Springfield, a newspaper on their doorstep says Hank Scorpio has seized the East Coast. Homer then picks up a letter saying that Hank Scorpio has given him a farewell gift. "It's not the Dallas Cowboys but it's a start." Homer had admitted that his life-long dream was to own the Cowboys, and Scorpio gives him the Denver Broncos. Homer is vaguely disappointed as he watches the rather inept team practicing on his front lawn.
