The title of the episode is a reference to the play My Fair Lady.
This episode is the second to make a reference to this play; the other is "My Fair Laddy" from season 17.
This is the third Simpsons to open as a Hanna-Barbera parody. The opening is parodying "The Jetsons" theme song. Other episodes to have Hanna-Barbera opening parodies are: "Marge vs. the Monorail", Homer leaving work a la Flintstones and "When You Dish Upon a Star", Homer dreams him, Bart and Ned Flanders are Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo Bear and Ranger Smith. Homer even quotes George Jetson's line: "Stop this crazy thing." Instead of "Jane," he says "Marge."
Bender from "Futurama" appears in "The Jetsons" opening parody at the start of this episode.
Bart has a hat that is similar to Ash hat from Pokemon.
This episode plot is very similar to the Uber App polemic, an app that allows normal drivers to carpool, wich was seen as unwanted competition by taxi companies. This caused massive protests and even attacks to people who get any profit using this app, similar to how the taxi drivers wanted to attack Marge because of her carpooling service.
You can see Mr. Burns asking Smithers "What profit a man if He gain the world, and lose His soul" which is a reference to a Beatles' music "Within You Without You".
Bart doesn't have any lines in this episode. Also, Lisa's only lines are "Oh, mom! Someone wants you to give them a ride!"
Because of this episode, this leaves Homer the only Simpson family member to speak in all the episodes so far.
In the couch gag, when Bart makes the skate stunt, The Be Sharps can be seen singing on top of Moe's
Despite appearing only in the couch gag as a cameo this episode marks the first appearance of Troy McClure in 17 years.
This is the first opening sequence to have Marge express concern about Maggie's disappearance from the cart only to let out a sigh of relief upon discovering she's only in the bag since the opening sequence was revamped in Season 20.
