Synopsis[edit]

"Marge and Mr. Burns fight for soul of a brash young football prodigy."


Plot[edit]

At the Power Plant, everyone is gone from their work place, following the sports channel's On the Clock, where Anger Watkins is presenting the Springfield Atoms's draft, picking Grayson Mathers. The workers start rioting the town right afterwards in celebration, while Mr. Burns and Smithers are reviewing corporate revenue going down, where his liquor company, Mr. Gentleman Brandy, is having all the losses, due to their ad campaign.

To reinvent the brand, the branding expert Warburton Parker is brought in, but ultimately Burns overhears the cheers for Grayson, and he hires him as the new face of the company. The Simpson family goes to the Springfield Atoms Stadium for the match against the Los Angeles Chargers, where they find him a complete mess after drinking so much liquor and everyone boos him.

To prove his worth, Grayson is brought to the Springfield Elementary for a speech, but all goes down when the bullies start offending him and he starts throwing books at them. He chugs another bottle of Brandy and passes out to urethra pains, waking up in the infirmary, where Marge is taking care of him and tells him to slow down. A partnership is then formed with Burns where Marge takes care of his home needs while Burns takes care of the rest.

Marge takes him home for the family dinner, where he tells the story of how just as a little kid he was brought in the football career, and he tells them how he never sees his parents in person afterwards, so Marge starts teaching him how to be in a family and invites him to stay for a while, teaching him how to use the dishwasher, getting his drug test all negatives, going to a normal church and giving him a birthday party.

At the party, Mr. Burns arrives ready to take him on party night, but Marge stops him remembering them how he has a football match the next day. The next day his match was a success, but Burns notices how he has become a mama's boy. At home Marge and Burns starts arguing and has him breakdown after they put him on a choice between the two.

Grayson leaves with all of his Ferrari and then sends Marge a ticket for the Sports Channel's annual awards show at The Draft Pigs Center for the Performing Arts, happy she's his plus one, but in the center she finds out that Burns was given the invitation too.

When he's shown for the award for Most Inspiring Athlete, Marge and Burns start connecting instead of fighting as Grayson wins. However, when Grayson thanks the person that inspired him, he mentions his fiancée Kaitlyn, that he met 3 days before, that he made his business manager, and Marge and Burns find out they've been replaced by her.

The episode aired on 9 PM instead of traditional 8 PM timeslot.
