When Krusty the Clown’s show is losing its female ratings, two executives confront Krusty in order to tell him that they are hiring a new, female co-star named Princess Penelope. Krusty is less than enthusiastic about this, and so are all the guys in Springfield who felt the show was at its best before. However, when the popularity of Princess Penelope skyrockets, Krusy becomes the co-star, and on the edge of losing his job. One thing, though, gets Penelope and Krusty together on the show; a marriage. Meanwhile, Mr. Burns takes away the free donughts from the Nuclear Power Plant, but Homer, Lenny and Carl strongly disagree with him and take a stand by talking to a headhunter who specializes in nuclear workers, and whom is willing to help them get their donughts back.

Couch Gag: The Simpsons are a group of sperm swimming their way to an egg. Once they fertilize it, the egg divides and multiplies until it turns into a Mr. Burns fetus.
Homer: That is the most amazing doughnut I've ever tasted
Mr. Burns: Well, if you stay on with the Springfield nuclear plant, you could have one of these tasty beauties every day.
Lenny: One of these every day might kill us.
Carl: Can we get a health plan to go with them?
Mr. Burns: Sure, you could have a health care plan or.... two doughnuts a day.
Bart: Poor Krusty. He's become the lowest form of life, a sidekick.
Milhouse: You said it, Bart. Way to sum up the situation.
Bart: Take it easy, buddy.
Milhouse: That's exactly how I'll take it.
Gator McCall: You nuclear workers have no idea how valuable you are. Time's never been better for your industry now that all the protesters that marched in front of nuclear power plants are dying off from radiation poisoning.
When Mr. Burns opens the box of donuts, we see one with pink frosting, one with chocolate frosting and the third with white frosting but when Lenny, Homer & Carl are seen eating the donuts, all three have pink frosting.
