* {{Irony}}: Everybody neglects the fact that Bart's unrelated prank of flooding the gymnasium accidentally saved Flanders' life by dousing the flames when Flanders set himself on fire. Even Bart was only thinking about his prank and couldn't predict the current would save Flanders strictly by chance.

* {{CallBack}}: Homer mentions that he was banned from a water park for ten years (which, at the time of this episode's premiere, would be incorrect), which could be a reference to when he got stuck on the H2-WHOA! ride at Mt. Splashmore on the episode "Brush With Greatness." If it's not, then it's a NoodleIncident.
