Trivia

  • Because of the controversy over gay marriage in the United States, this episode had a Parental Discretion Advised warning before the show, the first (and so far, only) time for The Simpsons and it was rated TV-14 DLV, the sixth time for The Simpsons. This has marked the only episode to get the rating outside the Treehouse of Horror episodes.
  • This episode was given a PG rating with an "Adult Themes" advisory in Australia.
  • Homer's printer is capable of perforating paper.
  • Julio, from the episode Three Gays of the Condo, is seen being married by Homer. His boyfriend from the episode, Grady, is not seen.

  • Howell Huser is a parody of long time public access host of "California's Gold", Huell Howser.

Goofs

  • Although Homer stopped being homophobic in Homer's Phobia and even lived together with two openly homosexual men in Three Gays of the Condo he still can be seen holding a sign "Death before gay marriage".
  • Reverend Lovejoy is unable to cite the book in the Bible condemning homosexuality (allegedly Genesis, Leviticus and others), yet in Homer the Heretic he is able to cite a completely random Bible verse of Homer's choosing from memory (Matthew 21:17).
