right before Maggie was born, Homer having settled all his debts, quit his job at the nuclear power plant, and took his dream job at a bowling alley. However, when Maggie was born, his salary was not enough to support three children, so he had to return and beg Mr. Burns for his old job at the plant. Mr. Burns accepted and placed a sign in Homer’s office, to remind him that he’ll be there “forever.” When Lisa asked where all Maggie’s photos were, he said that they were where he needed them the most.                       Season 6 Episode 13
