Cultural References

  • The title of this episode is a reference to Jacob's Ladder, the name given to a staircase described in the Book of Genesis that connects earth to heaven.
  • Bart pranks Lisa, by tricking her into playing The Scary Maze Game.
  • Bart says that Elon Musk and Angela Merkel got perfect scores on the so-galled "genius maze test".
  • The famous tune, "Charge" plays on the TV, while Homer watches the basketball game.
  • Homer has VHS recordings of Family Matters, The Tracey Ullman Show, and Saved by the Bell.
  • When Homer finds a tape for The Tracey Ullman Show, he reprises his voice and animation style in the shorts from that series.
  • It is revealed that Marge used to love the Ricola commercial as she and Homer dressed up as the people in the advertisement.
  • Olivia-Newton John's music video, "Let's Get Physical" is one of the tapes Homer watches with the kids.
  • Ned Flanders goes on a website called "IMDbible", which is a parody on IMDB.
  • One of the paintings on the left side of Bart's brain alludes to The Scream.

Goofs

  • Frankie the Squealer instructs Bart to kill Fat Tony, despite him already dying in "Donnie Fatso". It might be possible this episode took place before "Donnie Fatso", or Frakie might be referring to the new Fat Tony. Alternatively, since this only happens in Bart's dream, he may not be aware Fat Tony is already dead.
