Cultural references

  • The scene where Kent Brockman says to stand up to Fox while smoking is a reference to Edward R. Murrow and the film "Good Night, and Good Luck".
  • The title of the video shown in the dentist's office, "Menace Tooth Society" (which was implied to have been shown without Ludacris' permission), is a spoof of "Menace II Society". Lisa's comment that the cartoon sends mixed messages parallels critiques of the spoofed movie.
  • The title of this episode is a play on the Rolling Stones song, You Can't Always Get What You Want. Originally, the episode was supposed to be titled, The Kent State Massacre, but after the Virginia Tech shootings made the news, the episode's title was changed.
  • When ordering his ice cream cone, Homer mentions several toppings, all of which are real candies with their names slightly but noticeably changed, such as Herschel's Smooches and Mrs. Badbar (even though real candies have been mentioned several times before).
  • As Marge runs hurriedly home to get Bart and Lisa, the main yodeling music of the Coen brothers film, " Raising Arizona", is heard.
  • Some of the shows Ned considers naughty are: Smallville (because Superdog licks himself), 60 Minutes (Morleen Sayfer has questionable pantsfold and uses the "L" word), The L Word (because of the L word), and Channel 6 News (because of Kent Brockman's swearing)
  • The only shows Ned considers nice are The 700 Club and Test Pattern (non-Indian).


  • The word "Acquaintances" is misspelled as "Aquaintances" on the Wall of Casual Acquaintances Who Came to Stay for a While".
  • When Bart is walking in the living room, there is a frame where the animators forgot to remove the previous frame so there are two Barts at once.
