After Homer realizes he's missing out on the computer revolution, he buys the nicest model a fifth mortgage can buy and creates his own web page. However, when his web site fails to attract any attention, Homer begins calling himself Mr. X and becomes Springfield's number one source for dubious news and questionable scandals--which leads to Homer getting shipped to an island where those who know too much are cut off from mainstream society.
Chalkboard: I will only provide a urine sample when asked
Couch: The Simpsons come in to find Santa's Little Helper dancing like Snoopy did on "A Charlie Brown Christmas".
Number Six: Well, they keep us here, because we know too much. Number Twenty-Seven there knows how to turn water into gasoline. Number Twelve knows the deadly secret behind Tic-Tacs. And I invented the bottomless peanut bag.
Homer: So. Who brought us here?
Number Six: I don't know.
Homer: Did you bring us here?
Number Six: No.
Number Six: (after Homer steals the boat which he spent 33 years building) That's the third time that's happened!
Leader: As far as your family knows, Homer Simpson is walking in the front door right about now.
Homer: (Taking his face out of ice cream with needles sticking out) I'm sorry, what?
(Next scene at the Simpson house)
Fake Homer: (Speaking with a German accent) Marge, honey, Fraulein, I'm home!
Marge: You're not my husband!
Fake Homer: Jah, please forgive my unexplained two week absence. To make it up to you we will go out to dinner at a sensibly-priced restaurant, then have a night of efficient German sex.
Marge: Well, I sure don't feel like cooking.
Lenny: According to my uncle, Miss Springfield isn't as beautiful as she seems. Word is she uses appearance-altering cosmetics.
Moe: Oh my God, that's shocking.
Carl: The public should be warned. I wish Mr. "X" was here.
Homer (slyly): Oh, I don't know, Carl, he might be closer than you think.
Carl: Are you him? Are you Mr. "X"?
Carl: But you talked in the real sly voice. Hey, hey, everybody! Homer's Mr. "X".
Homer: I am not! (slyly) …or am I?
Lenny: Are you?
"Number 6" and the costumes come from the cult hit series, The Prisoner
