Saturdays of Thunder
Flaming Moe's
Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk (Burns to Sell the Power Plant)


  • The secret ingredient in the Flaming Homer and Flaming Moe: Krusty's Non-Narkotik Kough Syrup for Kids.
  • The knockoff's of Flaming Moe's that spring up overnight include Flaming Meaux, Flaming Moe's pushcart, and Famous Moe's.
  • The gang at Flaming Moe's include: Lenny, Carl, Barney, Krusty, Dr. Nick, Princess Kashmir, Ned and Maude Flanders, Jasper, Otto, Ms. Krabappel, Kent Brockman and Barney again.
  • A sign behind the bar reads, "Bartenders do it 'till ya barf".
  • Maggie says Moe in this episode - in Homer's hallucination. Whether or not it counts as her first word is up to you. Note that she also said It's your fault I can't talk! in Bart vs. Thanksgiving, which was also in a Simpson's imagination.
  • This is the first, and so far, only time where one of Bart's prank calls backfired and the person he mentioned in the prank actually existed. In this case, it was a man named Hugh Jass.
  • A bowie knife, a glass eye, a troll doll and the cough syrup are in the Lost and Found box.
  • Beneath the floorboards at Lisa's slumber party is a pipe labeled lead and insulation labeled Asbestos.
  • During the Eye On Springfield credits, a SPRINGFIELD can be seen spelled out in giant letters a la HOLLYWOOD sign. This is also seen in The Simpsons Movie and episodes afterwards (post Season 19).
  • Both names ascribed to the drink (Flaming Homer and Flaming Moe) are similar to terms for a stereotypical homosexual (flaming homo and flaming 'mo, respectively).
  • This is the only episode to make mention of a junior high (or middle) school in Springfield, as Moe complains that it being across the street is the only source of income for him due to the cigarette machine, although future episodes indicate that it was merely a reference since the opposite side of the street has had a gay bar called The League of Extra-Horny Gentlemen, a club for Springfield's elite and socialites, and even a motel.
  • The chalkboard gag implies that Bart wore his underwear on the outside. In Simple Simpson, Homer became a superhero whose costume consists of underwear on the outside.
  • There is a Season 22 episode called Flaming Moe.
  • This episode shows that Lisa is rather popular, having a group of friends, but in other episodes, she is unpopular and ignored or mocked by most girls in school.


  • The song At Flaming Moe's is a parody of the theme song from the sitcom Cheers.
  • Barney is greeted by everyone shouting his name as he walks into Flaming Moe's, in the same manner that Norm is greeted when he enters the bar in Cheers.
  • Moe's answer to Homer about where the waitress had gone is a reference to Shelley Long's decision to leave Cheers.
  • Homer's revelation of the drink's secret ingredient is an allusion to The Phantom of the Opera. The way he wore his bath robe over one side of his face may be a second reference to the 1986 musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, in which the Phantom wore a mask that covered the right side of his face.
  • At one point, Marge says All Moe and Moe Moe make Homer a Moe Moe references The Shining.


  • When the girls are pursuing Bart throughout the house, there were five. But at one point, when they chase past Homer, one girl is suddenly missing, so instead there are four.
  • Herman is seen with two arms. He may own a prosthetic arm.
  • Edna Krabappel doesn't understand that Homer is married, even though she talked to Homer and Marge in Bart Gets an "F". However, this might have been drunk talk, as she was obviously drunk.
  • When parked in front of the Aristocrat, Homer's car appears to have front bucket seats instead of the usual front bench seat.
  • Instead of Armando's reflection in the mirror, when he is seen in the toilet, we see the repeat of we are seeing.
