Waylon Smithers is Mr. Burns' sychophant assistant on The Simpsons. Smithers is definitely portrayed as a closeted homosexual having frequented Springfield's gay village and going on vacations to an all male resort. He also seems to have creepy fantasies about Mr. Burns.
Waylon has basically grown up at the nuclear power plant when his father died of radiation poisoning there.
Mr. Burns: I love you, Smithers.
Smithers: The feeling is more than mutual, sir.
Mr. Burns: Good to see you. Glad you could make it.
Father: Oh, thank you, Mr. Burns. I'm so glad you invited us.
Son: Not me. I had to miss little league for this.
Father: Quiet, Tom.
Mr. Burns: Oh please, please, don't fight. Just go out back and have a good time. (to Smithers) Fire that man, Smithers. I don't want him, or his unpleasant family to ruin my picnic.
Smithers: He'll be gone by the tug-of-war, sir.
Mr. Burns: Excellent.
