Episode Quotes
Mr. Burns: Oh, Smithers, I was wrong to play God. Life is precious, not a thing to be toyed with. Now take out that brain and flush it down the toilet!
Smithers: Sir, his family might appreciate it if you returned the brain to his body.
Mr. Burns: Oh, come on, it's 11:45!

Homer: I'll make a wish that can't backfire! I wish for a turkey sandwich, on rye bread, with lettuce, and mustard, and... I don't want any zombie turkeys, I don't wanna turn into a turkey myself, and I don't want any more weird surprises, you got it! (Homer eats)... Mmm, not bad, nice hot mustard, good bread, turkeys a little dry... THE TURKEY'S A LITTLE DRY!!!

Homer: That Monkeys Paw is going to make our dreams come true!
Maggie: (suck)
Lisa: Oh no! Maggie made a wish! (the family hear a car horn)
Homer: Oooh! A luxury car! Good Maggie!
Marge: (someone’s at the door, she opens it) Ooh, a new pacifier.
(The car drives off)
Homer: D'oh!

Smithers: (Over P.A.) Attention Homer Simpson. Attention Homer Simpson.
(Homer is still dozing at his post)
Smithers: Wake up, Homer! (Homer awakens)
Smithers: You're fired.
Homer: For what?
Smithers: For sleeping on the job.
Homer: How'd you know I was sleeping?
Smithers: We've been watching you on the surveillance camera.
Homer: Camera? (Spots the camera) D'oh!

Marge: It's your father, he's missing.
Bart: Dad's missing? Get outta here!
Marge: He's been gone for two days!
Lisa: What do you know, she's right!



Episode Goofs
After Maggie makes her wish, the family is all of a sudden beside the window.

When the last wish is granted by Homer, when the index finger moves, you can see the refrigerator off to the right of the hand. Homer was standing with his right arm facing the fridge.

Maggie gets her new pacifier and puts it in her mouth. She has her normal pacifier for the rest of this scene.

During the credits, there are gravestones of famous people, including one for Walt Disney with ice and snow on it. This is a reference to the urban legend that Walt Disney had himself frozen when he died so that he could be re-animated in the future.

Jasper being turned into a dog is a parody of a similar occurrence in the 1956 fim Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
