Episode: Homer Defined First aired: Oct. 17, 1991 Memorable Moment After Homer's heroism is exposed as mere dumb luck, people start to refer to other instances of dumb luck as "pulling a Homer". Chick Hearn is heard calling a Lakers game. Hearn: "The Lakers have the ball. Magic Johnson coming down the floor on a fast break. Magic stops. His feet slip out from under him! The ball flies out of his hands! Hits the referee in the head! Goes in the basket! It's a three-point play! The Lakers win!" Magic: "Looks like I pulled a Homer." Homer's name and picture appear in the dictionary: Homer \noun\ 1. American bonehead 2. Pull a Homer-- to succeed despite idiocy
