The plumber comes by the Simpson household to fix the leak in the basement, but apparently, can’t get the right tools. Next, while on a regular day to work, Homer notices that Lenny and Carl have been getting better things than he has.

Marge: Homer a man who called himself “you know who” just invited you to a secrete “wink wink”, at the “you know what”. You’re certainly popular now that you’re a Stonecutter.
Homer: O yeah. Beer busts, bear blasts, keggers, steinhoist, AA meetings, beer night. It’s wonderful Marge. I’ve never felt so accepted in all of my life. These people look deep within my soul and assign me a number based on the order in which I joined.
Homer: I always wondered if there was a god. And now I know there is. And it's me.
