Homer's Triple Bypass (S04E11)
After being warned by Marge about his unhealthy eating, Homer starts to feel chest pains. After a road rage incident and being yelled at by Mr. Burns for his poor performance at work, Homer suffers a heart attack.
Homer is sent to the hospital, Dr. Hibbert informs him and Marge that he needs a triple bypass, which will cost him $30,000. Hearing this, Homer has another heart attack, increasing the price to $40,000. Without health insurance from work, Marge and Homer figure out a way to pay for the operation.
Homer goes to The Merry Widow Insurance Company, but is denied when he has a heart attack before signing the policy. Marge and Homer then see a commercial for Dr. Nick Riviera, an incompetent surgeon who will perform any operation for $129.95. With no other options, Homer goes for the cheaper service.
Dr. Nick, unfamiliar with the procedure, rents an instructional video, but the important steps of the procedure have been taped over. During Homer's operation, he realizes he does not know what to do. Lisa, watching the operation in the amphitheater, uses her knowledge of cardiology to guide Dr. Nick. The surgery is successful and Homer makes a full recovery.
