*The sign near the entrance of the Botanical Gardens reads "Our Stamens are a Pistil". As well as referring to two parts of flowers, it is also a pun on the old-fashioned slang "pistol" meaning someone who is bright/energetic ("hot as a pistol") and thus fun to be around. The sign is thus saying (in a very obscure way) "Our flowers are fun to be around", and also explains why Lisa finds the joke hilarious whilst everybody else (including, in all likelihood, most of the audience) is just baffled by it.
*Zii Dance Dance Revolution is a parody of Wii Dance Dance Revolution.
 
*As the Simpsons are entering the arboretum, one of the sculpted bushes they pass is "Binky", a character from Matt Groening's comic "Life in Hell." The other pair of bushes are Kang and Kodos, The Simpsons' resident space aliens.

*During the “Italian-American Mexican standoff” scene, the President of the Italian-American Anti-Defamation League, at first, is clearly seen standing in between Legs and Don Castellaneta near the rear section of Luigi’s pointing both his two guns at both Fat Tony’s gang and the Castellaneta Family, akimbo-style, then later when Moe enters and convinces them to spare him and Maggie by explaining how Maggie’s innocence changed his life before, the President is then seen standing between Johnny Tightlips and the entrance to Luigi’s when he, Fat Tony’s gang, and the Castellaneta Family break down crying upon being touched by Maggie’s innocence (There was, oddly, no indication of him walking over to another spot during this scene).

*While Johnny Tightlips is breaking down crying by Maggie’s innocence touching him, Fat Tony’s gang, the Castellaneta Family, and President of the Italian-American Anti-Defamation League, he had his eyebrows, but then his eyebrows suddenly vanished as he buried his face in his hands to turn away onto his knees to cry on the floor, as well as still holding his gun in his right hand to do so, then in the next shot as Moe is carrying Maggie out of Luigi’s while Fat Tony’s gang, the Castellaneta Family, and President continued to cry by Maggie’s innocence touching them, Johnny Tightlips’ gun is now seen laying on the floor near him (Maybe while he is on his knees on the floor while crying with his face buried in his hands, he must’ve dropped his gun during that).

*Lionel Hutz is visible in the large panning crowd shot at the Botanical Gardens.

*Even in the shot where Moe, upon picking Maggie up, asks “Ain’t she a doll?”, Legs and Louie are seen standing between Moe and Maggie, when in actuality, they were both supposed to be standing on one side of Luigi’s near the restrooms with Fat Tony and Johnny Tightlips, opposite of the Castellaneta Family.
