Episode Notes
Couch: The Simpsons are sitting perfectly still on the couch. The camera pans out to reveal the words, “Ceci n’est pas une couch gag” (French for "This is not a couch gag") written on the carpet. The camera pans out again to reveal that the couch scene is a painting at a museum. The debutante's mother from “Burns Baby Burns” and a man in a gray suit are staring at the picture.

The name of Homer's grunge band is Sadgasm.

Bart: Come on. More turbulent than now?
Lisa: We're in every kind of therapy!
Homer: Things happened between your mother and me that we're not proud of. It was the middle of a wild decade known as the 1990's.
Bart: The '90s? Never heard of it.

(The Simpsons are all huddled up near the fireplace.)
Marge: We wouldn't be in this trouble if you just paid the heating bill!

(Marge enters Professor Stephan's library.)
Marge: Have you really read all these books?
Professor Stephan: Morally I couldn't display them on my shelves if I hadn't. But I watch sports as well, just like a regular man.
(Professor Stephan turns out the TV to a football game.)
Professor Stephan: Good goddess! The Patriots are deep in Redskin territory. This isn't entertainment, it's genocide! (Sobs)
