When Mr. Burns is caught illegally storing excess nuclear waste, he's forced to award the town $3 mllion. Traveling salesman, Lyle Lanley (Phil Hartman) convinces the town to spend the money on a monorail. Homer becomes the conductor, but Marge is not convinced and investigates another town Lyle sold a monorail to. When she sees how he ruined that town and that he's a con man, Marge rushes back to Springfield but it's too late. The monorail is out of control and won't stop... until Homer throws out an anchor to save the day.

Scientist: Well, judging by your husband's cowardly scream, 480 miles per hour.
