Ultra-charming billionaire Arthur Fortune (voice of Hank Azaria) comes to Springfield for the grand opening of one of his Fortune Megastore multi-media shops, and he wins over the townspeople with his habit of throwing dollar bills to strangers and sharing stories of his adventures around the world. Springfield's scandalously wealthy energy magnate C. Montgomery Burns (voice of Harry Shearer) notices people seem to love Fortune but don't much care for him, and he sets out to win the hearts of the people of Springfield. An radio interview with local shock-jock Jerry Rude (voice of Michael McKean) backfires on Burns, but when he learns that Fortune earned plenty of positive press by donating pandas to the Springfield Zoo. Burns decides to trump that by giving them a one-of-a-kind attraction -- the Loch Ness Monster. With faithful toady Waylon Smithers (also voiced by Shearer), bumbling employee Homer Simpson (voice of Dan Castellaneta), semi-respected scientist Professor John Frink (also voiced by Azaria) and resident Scot Groundskeeper Willie (also voiced by Castellaneta) in tow, Burns heads to Scotland, determined to capture the possibly mythical sea creature and bring it back home. "Monty Can't Buy Me Love" first aired on May 2, 1999.
