After Mr. Burns wins a basketball team in a poker game, he sees the antics of Mark Cuban at a game and tries to do similar things to win over the Springfield basketball fans. When his plan fails, Burns plans to build a new sports arena on top of an endangered Bee colony. An enraged Lisa sets up a campaign to save the endangered bees.
Lisa: Dad, we have to do something all the bees are dying!
Homer: (sarcastically) Oh, no! No bees! Ooh, now who will sting me and walk all over my sandwiches?
Lisa: But, Dad! Bees pollinate flowers.
Homer: Pfft. Flowers, the painted whores of the plant world.

(After Homer shows Lisa the hive containing the new hybrid bees he and Moe had created)
Lisa: They sound awfully mad. Are they dangerous?
Homer: Hmm, I'm not sure. Let me check. (Lifts the lid of the hive) Are you guys dangerous? (The bees fly out of the hive and knock Homer down) A simple "Yes" would've sufficed!
