Marge: A Simpson on a T-shirt. I never thought I'd see the day.
Homer: Kids, look! Street crime.
Mr. Burns: Well, take your mind off contaminants for one night and have a hot dog.
(Before the baseball game at Springfield Stadium, the Simpson family watches the players warm-up.)
Bart: Oh, wow! There’s Flash Baylor! I gotta get his autograph! He used to be a star!
(Bart makes his way to the outfield fence.)
Bart: Hey, Flash, will you sign my ball?
Flash Baylor: (Flatly) No.
(A disappointed Bart returns back to his seat.)
Bart: (Muttering) Lousy, washed-up, broken down tub of guts. Who does he think he is, anyway?
Homer: What's the matter, boy?
Bart: He wouldn't sign my ball.
Marge: (Upset) Well, he's a fine role model. Bart, give me that ball!
(Marge makes her way to the outfield fence.)
Outfielder: Hey, Flash, check out the mature quail headin’ this way.
Flash Baylor: Well, hey there, little lady. What can Flash do for ya?
(Cut to Marge returning back to her seat and handing Bart’s ball back to him.)
Marge: Here you go, Bart.
Bart: Hmm. (Reading baseball) “Springfield Kozy Kort Motel, room 26. How ‘bout it? Flash.”
Homer: Wow! Flash Baylor came onto my wife! You've still got the magic, Marge.
(The Simpson family make their way to their seats at Springfield Stadium.)
Lisa: I can't think of a better place to spend a balmy summer's night than the old ball yard. There's just the green grass of the outfield, the crushed brick of the infield, and the white chalk lines that divide the man from the little boy.
Homer: (Chuckles) Lisa, honey. You're forgetting the beer. It comes in 72-ounce tubs here.
Marge: I hope you’ll space out the tubs this year, Homer.
Homer: What are you getting at?
Marge: Well, last year you got a little rambunctious and mooned the poor umpire.
Homer: Marge, this ticket doesn't just give me a seat. It also gives me the right--no, the duty--to make a complete ass of myself.
The Phillie Phanatic
The Capitol City Goofball is a spoof of the famous Philadephia Phillies mascot.
The Shot Heard Around The World
Baseball Broadcaster: The Isotopes win a game! The Isotopes win a game!
This is a reference to the famous, "Shot Heard 'Round The World" radio commentary call of the deciding game of the 1951 National League Pennant Playoff series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants. The line was screamed out by Giants broadcaster Russ Hodges, after Bobby Thomson's walk-off home run.
New York, New York
The "Capital City" song by Tony Bennett, is something of a reference to the Frank Sinatra song, "New York, New York."
The black & white scene with Homer leaving Springfield is a direct reference to Lou Gehrig when he retired from baseball saying he was "The luckiest man on the face of the earth"
on July 4, 1939.
