Episode Summary
While drinking a beer at Moe's Tavern, Homer recounts his adventures during the past few weeks. He begins with the family attending "Nuclear Power Plant Employee, Spouses, and No More Than Three Children Night" at the local minor league baseball stadium. Homer's hopes of letting loose at the ballpark are ruined when Mr. Burns and Smithers sit next to him. To Homer's surprise, Mr. Burns buys him several rounds of beer to show good company relations.

Soon, Homer is drunk. With the Springfield Isotopes down by three runs, an inebriated Homer excites the crowd with an impromptu dance and rallies the team to victory. The Isotopes owner offers Homer a job as the team mascot and the team goes on a winning streak. Before long, Homer is offered a job with the Capital City Capitals. The Simpsons sell everything and move to the big city.

Homer's break comes when he fills in for the Capital's mascot, the Capital City Goofball. However, his small-town routine flops before the big-city crowd and he is fired. Back in Springfield, the patrons of Moe's Tavern do not care about Homer's failure, only about his adventure. Homer realizes that, for the first time in his life, he has something to say that people want to hear.
