The Homer They Fall

Rating: 3.9 (113 votes)


Trying to stand up for Bart, Homer runs into trouble with the parents of Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney. However, despite repeated blows to the head, he is not injured because his thick head absorbs punches from his opponent. Moe realizes this and persuades him to take up boxing. Although Homer cannot throw a punch, he lets the opponent collapse from being tired of punching him. Soon however, Homer finds himself in a match with Drederick Tatum, the best boxer in the world. Lucius Sweet, Tatum's manager, wants three rounds, and Marge wants Moe to throw in the towel if Homer is in trouble. During the match Homer finds out that Tatum's punches are to powerful. Homer is in danger of getting hurt very badly, and so Moe airlifts Homer to safety.
