|~ Adil Hoxha contacting his base.|
Adil Hoxha is one of the three main antagonists (along with his boss and Cesar and Ugolín) in The Simpsons episode "The Crepes of Wrath".
Once Bart is sent to France, the Simpson family must take another student in exchange while he is away. At first, Homer is suspicious that some other family in France could also be getting rid of a mischievous son, but he accepts when Skinner tells him that they would be receiving an Albanian student (which Homer mistakes for albino).
Adil, much to Homer's delight, shows great interest in his job at the nuclear power plant, and he has no trouble in taking him to his office and showing him the different dependencies, which Adil uses to gather information and take pictures for his country. He turns Bart's treehouse into an operations center, which he uses to communicate with his base and transfer important data over to it.
In the end, Adil is captured during an FBI raid when Homer, who was talking with one of the agents, waves at him from the street, inadvertently giving away his position. He is sent back to his country in exchange for an American kid who was working as a spy in Albania. As he gets picked up by his boss at the airport and into the plane, a saddened Homer bids his farewell, "Good-bye Adil, I'll send you those Civil Defense plans you wanted!". A few moments later, Bart returns from France to his family in a happy ree-ncounter.
Adil comes off as an easygoing and helpful person, which tricks other people into trusting him so he can carry out his job more efficiently.
- Adil's last name, "Hoxha", is derived from the late Albanian Communist leader Enver Hoxha, who ruled that country from 1944 until his death in 1985.
- He, Nelson Muntz, Waylon Smithers, and Hank Scorpio are considered to be the least evil and most anti-villainous villains in the Simpsons franchise.
- Adil, despite being a spy for his country, was genuinely cordial with the Simpsons and really does care about his nation. Cesar and Ugolín, however, were far worse.
- Nelson due to his tragic past which kind of possibly justifies his actions. His mother is an alcoholic and his father was never there for him.
- Smithers, despite being the loyal right-hand man to the show's main antagonist, Mr. Burns, still has a kindhearted and affable personality and even has helped the Simpson family on occasion.
- And finally, Hank Scorpio, due to his affable, charming, and overall quirky nature. He even befriends Homer and (to a lesser extent) the rest of the Simpson family. He is so likeable for a villain on the show to the point where his only genuinely evil corrupting quality is his love for flamethrowers, and that he wasn't the main villain of The Simpsons Movie as the creators thought he was too likeable.
