Several ex-presidents attend Mr. Burns' birthday party. The bouncer allows Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon to enter, but refuses to admit George Bush Sr. because he was a one-termer. However, Nixon also served only one term, but he was admitted anyway. Nixon was elected to two terms, although he resigned during his second term, the only President to do so. See more
