Dennis Franz is an American actor, best known for his portrayal of Detective Andy Sipowicz on NYPD Blue.


When Homer was accused of sexually harassing a babysitter, a media frenzy ensued. During this time, the FOX network produced and aired a movie titled Homer S.: Portrait of an Ass Grabber, starring Dennis Franz as Homer Simpson. During the scene from the movie that was shown, Homer was driving the babysitter home, terrifying her by driving recklessly. He ran over several parking meters, and, in spite of the babysitter's protests, a cat that was cleaning itself in the middle of the road.

Homer finally came to a stop when he crashed into some garbage cans. He then announced that he was going to "grab himself some sweet" and advanced menacingly on the babysitter. She protested that grabbing her was sexual harassment, and threatened, "If you keep it up, I'll yell so loud the whole country will hear!" Homer, laughing evilly, dismissed her threat and said that with a man in the White House, that wasn't likely to happen.[1]
