When Homer, Bart, and Lisa eat a ton of candy, the three begin having various nightmares:
Lisa's nightmare (The Monkey's Paw): The Simpsons visit Morocco and find a monkey's paw that makes all their wishes come true – with dire consequences.
Bart's nightmare (The Bart Zone): The town of Springfield must think happy thoughts or suffer the powers of Bart's twisted imagination.
Homer's nightmare (If I Only Had a Brain): Mr. Burns kills Homer (who's now working as a grave-digger) so he can transplant his brain into a robot's to create a super-efficient worker.
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!
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)
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!
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.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
Jasper being turned into a dog is a parody of a similar occurrence in the 1956 fim Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
The scene with Homer being detained by the cops with souvenirs taped to his body is a reference to the 1978 film where a character had taped drugs to his body.
The group of kids that run in front of the Simpson's home are the Peanuts
gang from It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
