Nuclear Power Plant Fire Drill

S08E12 - Mountain of Madness

Mr. Burns holds a fire drill at the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant; the employees panic and fail to evacuate the plant within 15 minutes. Outraged, Burns declares that everyone will be subjected to a teamwork competition at a mountain. Homer is partnered with Burns while Smithers has to journey on his own. The objective of the competition is to reach a cabin at the top of the mountain; the last team to arrive will be fired.

Burns talks Homer into cheating and they use a snowmobile to reach the cabin. Arriving early, they settle down in the comfortable surroundings and quickly become friends. While clinking their champagne glasses, they inadvertently cause an avalanche that buries the entire cabin. The two make several attempts at escaping but are unsuccessful. The other employees reach what appears to be their destination; however, it is actually a ranger station and they begin to realize that something bad has happened to their colleagues.

Homer and Burns are beset by cabin fever and attempt to kill each other. After a vicious struggle, Burns ignites the cabin's propane tank, launching the building out of the snow and propelling it toward the horrified onlookers. Once it comes to a halt, Burns reminds everyone of the contest, and all the workers hurry inside. Lenny is the last person in the cabin, and is fired. Burns is informed that the completion time of the competition has set a new record, and decides that no one will be fired after all.
