Cultural references

  • Misery - When Moe picks up David Byrne after he is badly injured, Byrne asks Moe to take him to the hospital. When Byrne asks why Moe drove right past it, Moe ask him "have you ever seen the movie Misery?". The movie Misery is about a writer who is hurt in a blizzard and is taken in (then held captive) by a crazed fan of his work.
  • More, More, More - The song that The Moe Szyslak Connection performs at the end of the episode is to the tune of this Andrea True Connection song.
  • Back to the Future Part III - When Bart ropes Homer around the neck to save him from the beavers, it's a spoof of the scene in which Marty is roped by the hands.

  • Lisa says that the Lazy I Ranch has no radio or TV so they don't have to listen to Homer's song but at the ranch, Maggie is seen dancing to "Oops!...I Did It Again" by Britney Spears on the radio. She could have a Cassette tape or a CD with this song.
