The Simpsons: The Trouble With Trillions

In order to avoid an audit, Homer serves as an IRS spy in a sting operation targeting Mr. Burns (who was charged with embezzling a trillion dollars that would have gone to help ravaged European cities after World War II), but after hearing Mr. Burns's rant on how wasteful the American government is when it comes to money, Homer joins his boss and Smithers in fleeing to Cuba.

Episode Quotes
Bart: (to Agent Johnson) My dad has a trillion dollars? Wow! I could buy and sell your sorry ass! [...]

Mr. Burns: Take her down, Smithers!
Smithers: Uh...you're flying the plane, sir.
Mr. Burns: Excellent.

Mr. Burns: (to Smithers) So now our own government is hunting us down like a couple of common snow leopards.

Homer: (Wearing an FBI listening device.) Hey, see you're watching the ball game. Looks like a good one. Any of you involved in any illegal activity? Cause I could sure go for some. How bout you, Lenny? Testing, testing. Lenny?
Lenny: You saying you want to commit a crime, Homer?
Homer: Maybe. But first I need to hear about some other crimes to get me fired up.
Carl: You mean like the time you was running moonshine out of your basement?
Barney: Or that telemarketing scam you pulled?
Homer: Uh . . . like those, but involving you.
Moe: Oh, you mean like the time Barney beat up George Bush?
Homer: Barney!? That was me! And I'd do it again.
Charlie: Why stop there, Homer? My militia has a secret plan to beat up all sorts of government officials. That'll teach them to drag their feet on high definition TV!
FBI Agent: You're under arrest for conspiracy!
Moe: How'd they finger Charlie? Somebody must have ratted him out.
Homer: Oh, that's ridiculous, Moe. End transmission.
