When he finds out that a character on the TV show Police Cops is named Homer Simpson, the real Homer decides to change his name to Max Power. The new name earns him new, high-profile friends like Trent Steel, a young businessman. Steel invites "Max" and his wife Marge to a garden party, where they meet such luminaries as Ed Begley, Jr. and Bill Clinton. While Clinton tries to seduce Marge, Homer learns that the gathering is part of an effort to save the Springfield redwoods, and joins the protest. After chaining themselves to the giant trees, "Max" and his buddies are attacked by police. As he runs from the cops, "Max" accidentally pulls down the tree he's attached to, which in turn knocks down the entire forest. Humiliated, he retreats from his new friends and returns to being Homer Simpson.
