In the 24th installment to the Treehouse of Horror series, Homer creates a monstrous beast in Beefzilla, in Let Me AXE You A Question, the family enter a gameshow, where the incorrect contestants are killed in gruesome manners, and in Poltergeezer, Grampa dies; and returns to haunt The Simpsons.
Ralph is talking to the viewers about how he loves Halloween. Then Nelson comes in and takes Ralph's candy. As Nelso says "Haw-Haw!", Ralph hits him in the back with an axe. Nelson falls down, Ralph smiles and Nelson's blood spells out TREEHOUSE OF HORROR XXIV.
Homer is at Moe's. There, he eats some beef jerky. Homer complains about the terrible quality of beef jerky. Moe sarcastically syas "I bet you can make some better beef jerky Homer!" Homer agrees and goes home to begin work. First he creates a jerky which is too salty. Then one which is too crunchy. But when Homer adds uranium to the jerky, he creates a huge beast (which he dubs Beefzilla), which goes on the rampage in Springfield. It destroys many buildings, kills Lenny, Moe, Skinner and all of the Springfield Choir. The Springfield military attempt to destroy the beast, but it just makes it even crispier and yummier than before. However Homer then realises he has a bottomless stomach. He manages to eat Beefzilla (with the aid of a fork and a lot of paramedics). The scene cuts to The Simpsons house, where an extremely large Homer is watching TV.
Let Me AXE You A QuestionEdit
The family are watching TV, where they see an ad for a gameshow, where the winner wins 5 million dollars. Homer immediately signs the family up, ignoring the fine print on the contract, which states the show is allowed to seriously injure or kill the contestants. The family, the Flanders', the Skinners and the Van Houtens are all contestants. The gameshow begins and the Van Houtens are asked the question 'Recite the square root of pi to 50 decimal places.'. When Milhouse gets the first decimal place wrong, the gameshow host pulls a lever, and the Van Houtens are minced into paste (which is delivered to Springfield Elementary). The families try and plead with the audience to help them, but they simply cheer. When the Skinners are asked 'What's the capital of Japan?' they argue, and Seymour gives the wrong answer, so he and Agnes are incinerated by a laser beam. The Flanders are then killed, leaving only The Simpsons. They are asked 'Is Pluto a planet?'. Lisa is about to answer no, but Homer buts in and says yes. The family are plunged into fire. In hell, the family look angrily at Homer who syas "What? I saw it in Space For Dummies." A devil whips the family.
Grampa is walking across the road. He fails to see an approaching car and is hit. He is rushed to hospital whre he is announced dead. The family are sad. Grampa watches from heaven and decides to see how they react. When his spirit sees they don't attend his funeral, he flies over to the Simpson residence to investigate. There he sees they are actually watching a re-run of The Pain Train. Angry, Abe decides to teach them a lesson. When Marge sees the furniture is flying by itself, she tells Homer. Homer just says "Honey, relax. Just do what I do: go with the flow.". Concerned, Marge calls a priest. Lovejoy arrives, an states there is a poltergeist in the house, and reccommends they should move. Homer of course, refuses and kicks Lovejoy out. Late at night however, Homer is dragged out of bed, Lisa's Malibu Stacy's hover in the air, and Bart's slingshot begins firing things itself. The family flee to the attic. They think they are safe, but when Homer looks into a mirror, he sees Grampa's reflection. He angrily says "You deserve this Homer!", Homer is pushed down the stairs. The family think he is dead. As Abe prepares to throw a knife at them, the family apologise. At first, Abe lowers his knife...but then lifts it up and hurls it. Just as it is about to hit them, Homer sits up screaming. He thanks God, it was only a dream, but then sees he is in a hospital bed. He then says "D'oh!"
Lisa: Oh no! The Springfield Choir is dead!
(The Family stare at her blankly)
Lisa: Ugh.. I'll be in my room.
Homer: Oh I get it. It's a train of pain.
Homer (when seeing Abe's reflection): God, I really let myself go.
Moe (as he is being eaten): Sarcasm is getting me nowhere.
Ned: Hiddily-Ho Simpsorinos!
Homer: Shut up Ned.
Gameshow Host: Now if your neighbour is a girl, then you save 5 dollars!
Homer: That's me!
Ned: But Homer I...
Homer: Shut up Meg.
