The Loop (TV)
The plastic surgeon that gives Moe his handsome face is the same one that would later give Marge her breast implants in " Large Marge" and Homer's stomach-stapling surgery in " Husbands and Knives".
We learn in this episode, that Carl's surname is Carlson.
When the Executive refers to 'TV ugly' she is referring to when a normally attractive actor is made up to appear homely or plain or is only considered ugly when someone prettier is next to them.
There are Ulysses Simpson Grant, Babe Ruth and Benjamin Franklin animatronics in the alco-hall of fame.
The announcer for It Never Ends says, "Like a cleaning of a house, it never ends.", this is a reference to the saying, "Like a river's flow, it never ends."
There are Marge (with Maggie), Principal Skinner, Apu and Kirk Van Houten in the "Duff Designated Drivers's Rockin' Fun Zone".
The women who admire the new-look Moe at his pub are Bernice Hibbert, Luann Van Houten, Edna Krabappel, Elizabeth Hoover, Selma Bouvier, Manjula Nahasapeemapetilon and others.
This episode marks one of the few "Breaking the Fourth Wall" moments in the series; when Carl unintentionally offends Lenny, Barney, and Homer with a question about their personality flaws for Moe to relate to regarding his ugliness, all four of them break down crying. Carl then turns to the audience and states, "See, this is why I don't talk much."
The soap opera that Moe got cast in was called It Never Ends, which is a reference to the longevity of soap operas.
The word, "fudge" was censored for some weird reason.
When the Simpson family get on the car, they wear pajamas, but when they arrive to Duff Days, there wear their daily clothes. Also: the pets are missing.
After Homer puts in the cassette tape a fifth toe briefly appears on Lisa's right foot.
Lenny says that no women have been in their bar, but in " Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment" there were women in it. Furthermore, Ruth Powers already visited the bar in the episode " New Kid on The Block". Moe's was also temporarily a local hotspot in " Flaming Moe's".
If he couldn't breathe with the sticker on his face, how was Duffman able to talk? He might have taken a big breath beforehand.
It's odd that Moe and Homer read so far into the future of the show's plotlines without noticing that Moe's character wasn't actually absent.
Bart already knows what it's like to get drunk, as seen in " Homer vs. The Eighteenth Amendment" when he got beer sprayed through his Irish horn and he swallowed it.
One of competitors kicks out his drunkard Larry in the "Beer–Tender of the Year" contest. Actually, Larry is Moe's drunkard (unless Larry likes to frequent bars other than Moe's Tavern).
Only Marge, Skinner and Apu are in the "Duff Designated Drivers's Rockin' Fun Zone" in the first scene. In the next scene, the zone is much bigger and there is also Kirk inside of it.
Marge comments that the Rockin' Fun Zone has razor wire on it, but the wire around it is just ordinary barbed wire.
Homer took out the car door handles so the kids couldn't open them from inside the car, but at the festival, they open the door normally.
