* In "Homer vs. Patty and Selma", Homer dreams his financial worries will be over with an invention of his that fits in the palm of one's hand and everybody has at least one. This description fits that of the "fidget spinner", invented by a destitute woman. She didn't get to enjoy from the profits as she was too poor to have the patent renewed(and even if she had been able to afford to get it renewed, it would've expired in 2014), and she's ''still'' penniless.

Added DiffLines:

* In the 1999 episode "Homer to the Max", Homer mentions that networks like animation because they don't have to pay the voice actors squat. Flanders then shows up with [[TheOtherDarrin a new voice actor]] (Karl Wiedergott) in order to illustrate the joke. In Spring 2015, Creator/HarryShearer, Flanders' regular voice actor, temporarily left the series following a contract dispute before the issue was resolved a couple of months later.

Added DiffLines:

* In "Lisa the Iconoclast", the historian at the Springfield Historical Society holds Jebediah Springfield not as a "minor patriot" but along the ranks of Thomas Jefferson and even Woody Allen. Apart from Allen's aforementioned fall from grace, Thomas Jefferson's public reputation has taken a hit in recent years for his support of states' rights and his ownership of slaves (something at odds with his liberalism).[[note]]Jefferson is nonetheless still highly regarded between scholars, not least for being one of the "Founding Fathers".[[/note]]
