Synopsis

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Homer finds he's falling in love with Mindy Simmons, the beautiful new engineer at the plant, who has almost the exact same personality and interests as him. Things only get worse when Homer and Mindy are sent to represent the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant at the National Energy Convention in Capital City. The more time they spend together, the more Homer begins to fear that there may be more fusion at the hotel than back at the plant. Mindy tells Homer how she feels about him, and even though he's tempted by her beauty and her love for the same things Homer enjoys, Homer stays faithful to Marge. Love is any of a number of emotions and experiences related to a sense of strong affection or profound oneness. ...

It is also discovered that he has a fallen arches and has to wear special shoes with extreme platforms as well. These adjustments turn him into a nerd.
