This one has countless examples, seeing as how Homer has been fired from his job at the nuclear plant so many times that … well, we’d say it’s not even funny, but it actually is. However, most times it is never shown how Homer gets his job back. It seems to just show up when the story needs it again. The best exchange on the matter comes from the episode “Alone Again, Natura-Diddily,” where Bart catches Homer secretly videotaping his neighbor, Ned Flanders, who recently lost his wife, Maude.
Bart: Why are you taping Flanders, dad?
Homer: You’ll see.
Bart: Do you even have a job anymore?
Homer: I think it’s pretty obvious that I don’t.
