Homer attends the annual Springfield Chili Cook Off, where every year he gets drunk. This year he promises not to drink, but when he tries Chief Wiggum's Guatemalan peppers, he passes out and goes into a weird dream. Homer meets a crazy coyote, who tries to teach him to find his real soul mate. At first he believes it to be Marge, but upon returning home, Marge yells at him. So he goes off to find his real soul mate, ending up at a lighthouse. However, the bulb burns out and there is a ship heading for the rocks. Marge turns up and they work together and find a replacement bulb. Homer and Marge use teamwork to save them and the ship and then Homer realizes that Marge is his soul mate after all.
