Because of his accomplishment, Homer becomes a celebrity, appearing on The Springfield Squares with Bumblebee Man, Sideshow Mel, and his old nemesis, Ron Howard. But fame proves fickle and Homer quickly goes from Man of the Moment to Where Are They Now? Depressed, he decides to devote his life to his children. Bart and Lisa don't really take to his extra-aggressive parenting, but Maggie can't refuse, mostly because she can't speak. Homer takes Maggie to a Daddy and Me swim class but she's too scared to go in the water. Later, Homer nearly drowns and only Maggie can save him. Homer realizes that he might not have fame, but he'll always have his baby.
