Elton John ends up at the Springfield airport when his private jet suffers a malfunction. After exiting the plane, Homer mistakenly thinks that Apu got the vocalist as a gift for his wife and shoves him into a dog cage. John eventually escapes and meets up with Apu, whose Valentine's Day plans are going awry thanks to Homer, and helps the Qwik-E-Mart attendant give his wife the gift of song.
