Episode Quotes
Bart: Weaving? Homer, you're my father. You're supposed to protect me from things like this.

Lawyer: And you're positive that men and ape cannot be related?
Ned: As sure as I am that Jesus hates Hip-Hop.

Marge: Thank you honey for opening my eyes. I can't wait to see what evolution will make next. Maybe a bird with a people-face or a bear with pants on.

Ned: (To his son) Stop praying to that stork!

Cultural References
The first item on Abe's todo list is "Sleep with Ester Williams". She became famous as United States swimmer and movie star in the 1940s. Read more about her in the wikipedia article.

Episode References
The Couch Gag is the same as in the episode 17x10 Homer's Paternity Coot.

The chalkboard scene [“Je ne parle pas français” (I do not speak French)] is purposely contradicting 01x11 The Crepes of Wrath where Bart learns French.
