Homer saw the Gummi Venus when he and Marge attended the Springfield Candy Convention, leaving the kids at home with babysitter Ashley Grant. Homer looked in the Gummi candy booth and was instantly beguiled by the Gummi Venus in its glass case. The exhibitor in the booth told Homer that the Gummi Venus was carved by Gummi artisans who worked exclusively in the medium of Gummi. As Homer inspected the Gummi Venus more closely, it seemed to wink at him, and he decided to steal it. Homer smashed the case open, grabbed the Gummi Venus, and ran for the exit, only barely getting away.
The Gummi Venus de Milo stuck to Ashley.
Back at the Simpson house, Homer was unable to find the Gummi Venus amidst all the candy that he and Marge had brought home, and frantically searched for it. Marge reminded him that he still needed to take the babysitter home, so he reluctantly gave up the search and started driving Ashley home. However, she was disgusted by Homer's announcement that he had to scratch himself in two places at once and asked to be let out early. As she got out of the car, Homer saw the Gummi Venus stuck to the back of her pants and picked it off, which she mistook for Homer grabbing her butt. Homer then ate the Gummi Venus, looking utterly blissful as he tossed it into his mouth.
