He continually refused Homer's entry into heaven on account of Homer's not having performed a truly good deed at any point in his life. Having given Homer one last chance, he allowed Homer's spirit to return to earth. However, when Homer did finally perform a good deed (saving a baby from death) Saint Peter claimed not to have seen it. When Homer exclaimed "Well, I'll be damned", Saint Peter replies "Yes, I'm afraid you will be" before activating a trap-door that sends Homer ultimately to Hell.
Behind the Laughter
St. Peter was one of the first apostles of Jesus Christ, and according to Catholic tradition, was the first Bishop of Rome and therefore the first Pope before being martyred in AD 64. The reason that popular culture shows him as the "doorman" of Heaven is that in the Gospels, Jesus entrusted Peter with the Keys to Heaven and Earth (keys which are to this day part of the Papal insignia).
