Apu and his wife decide to have a baby. With the help of fertility drugs, their attempts to conceive prove successful--very successful: Nine months later, Manjula gives birth to octuplets. The townspeople of Springfield celebrate the arrival of the babies, and local companies shower Apu and Manjula with free products. But when a Shelbyville couple has nine babies at once, all the attention turns to them and Apu and Manjula are left to raise their babies together. It's a big job and Apu realizes he's not up to the task. When Larry Kittkill, the owner of the Springfield Zoo, offers to pay Apu and Manjula to raise their babies behind the glass of a zoo exhibition, Apu foolishly accepts. When he decides he wants to take his new family away from the zoo, Apu discovers that he can't get out of the contract he signed. Homer and Apu steal the babies but Homer must make amends with Mr. Kittkill by performing at the zoo himself.
