* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the original version, when thinking of a number to bet on, Homer has the line "Marge's birthday is April 20th, same as Hitler's..." The second FOX airing of this episode actually aired on April 20, which was also the date of the Columbine High School massacre; as a result of this, the line was changed for the third FOX airing to "Marge's birthday is July 15th, same as Lassie's..." Unfortunately, even though the replacement line only aired that one time (in syndication it's the original line), it is the version found on both FXX and the DVD.

* EditedForSyndication: Homer's reference to Barney Gumble sharing a birthday with Adolf Hitler (April 20th) is changed on a lot of reruns (both domestic and international) to Barney sharing a birthday with Lassie the dog (July 15th). The version that airs on FXX has the July 15th line instead of the April 20th line. The original line can be found on the season 10 DVD set (though the alternate line is in the closed captions/English subtitles).
