Security cam angle of Bart sitting in Homer’s control room at the power plant. He is typing on Homer’s computer.

Medium shot of Bart, laughing to himself.
We can see the door is closed behind him.

Computer (OP, jagged):  “Message Sent”

Bart:  Mwahahahaaa!

5.
Large panel. We can see a list of Homer’s emails. The layout is like gmail format where we see: sender name - subject in bold - and a snippet of message content. The first message is highlighted as new.

Computer (jagged):  “You have one new message.”

Same shot as p2/4.  Homer is coming through the door in the bkg. His eyes are blocked by the lid of the open donut box he is carrying.  Bart looks over his shoulder, startled.
