Homer is attracted to a sexy co-worker with a personality identical to his own.
Marge takes Bart for a vision exam. The doctors prescribe thick glasses, clunky shoes and greasy hair salve, making Bart look like a nerd. Meanwhile, at the power plant, the Department of Labor demands that Mr. Burns hire a woman employee. When Homer meets his new co-worker, Mindy Simmons, he is instantly smitten.
Homer determines to quash his interest in Mindy by proving that his attraction is purely physical and that he has nothing in common with her. But he finds the opposite is true: she enjoys donuts, drinking beer, watching television and taking a quick nap before lunch. To make matters worse, Mindy is attracted to Homer. Homer accidentally knocks himself unconscious. During his blackout he is visited by his guardian angel, who assumes the form of Colonel Klink from “Hogan’s Heroes.” The angel shows Homer what his life would have been like if he had married Mindy instead of Marge… a life that is almost idyllic. He is later told by Smithers that he and Mindy are being sent to the National Energy Convention in Capital City. At school, Martin saves Bart from a brutal beating by leading him to a nerd sanctuary.
Bart is happy to learn his treatments have worked and he no longer has to suffer as a nerd. At a hotel in Capital City, Homer and Mindy decide to order room service together. They gorge themselves on a variety of foods. While simultaneously eating the same chili dog, their eyes lock, and their lips touch. Homer’s shirt button pops off, revealing a T-shirt with Marge’s photo beneath. He runs from the room. Mindy and Homer win a romantic dinner at a Chinese restaurant, and afterward return to the hotel room. But Homer searches his heart, and instead of giving in to temptation, he decides to invite Marge to stay with him at the hotel.
