"Missionary Impossible" (#BABF11 - 20Feb2000)

Homer pledges $10,000 to PBS. When they try to collect on it, he joins the Peace Corps to hide from them.

The one gag which stands out as funnier than the rest of the show combined, for pure instant laughs as well as staying power and repeatability is this one:

Homer: ...wait, I'm no missionary! I don't even believe in Jebus! Let me out!
Pilot: Sorry. No can do.
Homer:(Tries to open door, is thwarted by lock) Oh, save me Jebus!

Later, Homer's voice is heard on Reverend Lovejoy's radio:

Homer: Jebus? Where are you? Homer to Jebus! (groan)...

This gag was in fact so enjoyed by someone with too much time on his hands that an entire "Jebus Saves You" site was created at


It's worth a laugh; go have a look while it's still up!
