** In "Saturdays of Thunder," Homer takes a parenting quiz and is unable to answer any questions about Bart. When he calls the quizmakers to ask what he should do, they put him on hold; the song played is {{Harry Chapin}}'s "Cat's in the Cradle," about a father and son who never find the time to get to know each other. He promptly breaks down weeping while listening to it.
