When Springfield is chosen as the shooting location for Rainier Wolfcastle's big-screen adaptation of the popular Radioactive Man comic series, the entire town tries to take the movie's producers for every dime they've got while Bart auditions to be Fallout Boy, a part that inexplicably goes to his friend, Milhouse.
Chalkboard: "Bewitched" does not promote Satanism
Couch: The couch is a fax machine and The Simpsons are spewed out on a piece of paper that slides back under the couch.
Radioactive Man: My eyes! The goggles do nothing.
Editor: Thanks to modern editing techniques, we can use existing footage to complete the film without Milhouse! (the assistant and director stare at him blankly) … Watch.
(Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy are surrounded in a dark cave)
Radioactive Man (Wolfcastle): Looks like we're in trouble, Fallout Boy.
(scene switches to bright field)
Fallout Boy (Milhouse): Jiminy-jillikers, Radioactive Man.
(back to cave)
Radioactive Man (Wolfcastle): We'll have to fight our way out. Are you ready?
(scene switches to Milhouse on a couch)
Fallout Boy (Milhouse): Yes.
(scene switches to Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy fighting alien slugs)
Editor: Seamless, huh?
Assistant: (pause)… You're fired.
Editor: And with good cause!
Bart: Wow, you really got it made now, Milhouse. This is living!
Milhouse: Is it, Bart? Is it really?
Milhouse: Ever since I became a movie star I've been miserable. I had to get up at 5 A.M. just for makeup. I like the way the blush brings out my cheekbones, but it's not worth it. And making movies is so horribly repetitive: I've said "Jiminy jillikers" so many times the words have lost all meaning! (the director comes in)
Director: We've got to do the "Jiminy jillikers" scene again, Milhouse.
Milhouse: (quietly but angrily) But we already did it. It took seven hours, but we did it. It's done!
Director: Yes…but we've got to do it from different angles! Again and again, and again and again and again!
Milhouse: Aaaaah! (gets dragged out screaming)
