| Couch Gag Information
The Simpsons are being put into four chambers (Marge and Maggie share one). The technician has to make an extra effort to close the door of Homer's chamber, but when he succeeds, the four chambers slide into the wall. Then there is a bright flash: The Simpsons are transported into the world of Avatar, and we see them as they would appear as Na'vi.
The family run to the top of a cliff, where they see that the skies are filled with flying couches. In a parody of the scene where Jake Sully tries to capture his own Ikran, Homer leaps off of the cliff and tries to capture a couch. However, he misses and ends up plummeting all the way to the bottom of the cliff, screaming as he falls. Moments later, he reappears at the top of the cliff, now battered, bruised and out of breath. Then Bart leaps off of the cliff and succeeds in landing on a couch. After a brief struggle, he gains control of the couch and flies it back to the top of the cliff, where he picks up the rest of the family. Bart then flies the couch to another clifftop, this one with a TV. After the couch settles into position in front of the TV, the family members (except Bart) put on 3-D glasses. Bart, however, looks around and sees an opportunity for mischief. He sticks Homer's ponytail into a wall socket, shocking him, and then puts on his own 3-D glasses.
