** Dr. Hibbert tells Homer that he can use medical drugs, using a short list of different terms that culminates in "Texas THC". This is a spoof of a line in "The Ballad of Jed Clampett" from ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies'', in which the narrator elaborates on what he meant by Jed finding "a bubbling crude", which culminates with "Texas tea".



-->'''Marge''': Homer, you don't need drugs anymore. Your eyes are all better.
-->'''Homer''': [[HalfwayPlotSwitch Eyes?]] [[LampshadeHanging What the hell are you talking about?]]
-->'''Lisa''': I want my old dad back. The one who was yelling all the time, and [[DoubleTake ...]] you know, I'm not really sure what I want.

* [[NeverTrustATrailer Never Trust An Episode Title]]: Even though the episode title is a pun on ''WeekendAtBernies'', the parody of it is very shallow (Smithers and Homer finding Mr. Burns dead and propping him up to make him look alive) and is seen near the end of the episode.

** While stoned, Homer sings [[DeepPurple "Smoke on the Water"]] which is what alerts the family to his pot use (though the telltale trails of smoke do too).

* ElCidPloy: After Mr. Burns apparently drowns, Smithers and Homer turn him into a marionette to fool the investors. Somehow, it works, and Burns regains consciousness.



* NoExportForYou: Was banned for a time on Sky1 in the UK due to the plot about medical marijuana. It did eventually air in a post-watershed slot on both Sky and Channel 4 when they got the rights to it (only it wasn't advertised). It's now available on DVD (where it was rated 12 for frequent references to mild drugs).
** Averted in Australia and the United States. This episode ''did'' air in these countries, but with higher ratings than usual (Australia aired the episode with an M rating [[note]]which they also used for "Natural Born Kissers" and "Million Dollar Abie" for its scenes depicting assisted suicide, abuse against the elderly, and animal cruelty[[/note]] while the U.S. aired this with a TV-14 rating[[note]]which they used for many episodes in the later seasons, especially after the show converted to HD definition, such as the Treehouse of Horror episodes -- except the recent one from the 25th season, "The Day the Earth Stood Cool", "What Animated Women Want" and "Yellow Subterfuge".[[/note]]



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The writers were planning on making this episode their most controversial, due to the arguments over the health benefits of marijuana. Apparently, this grand plan didn't take as the censors only objected to scenes of Homer actually smoking his joints instead of the actual subject matter. The worst this episode got in terms of people speaking out against it were some negative reviews from viewers and Jon Vitti had to explain to his nephew that Homer's behavior [[DrugsAreBad isn't something to be imitated or glorified]]. The episode that did garner lots of controversy was "Blame It on Lisa" after Brazil complained about how their country was depicted.

* ContinuityNod: When Marge assembles the scarecrow, a small bubble of [[MetaGuy Comic Book Guy]] appears and relates the episodes the items used are from. For those curious, said items include Lisa's jersey from "Lisa on Ice", Bart's jockey pants from "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS11E13SaddlesoreGalactica Saddlesore Galatica]]", a Jack-O-Lantern from multiple TreehouseOfHorror episodes, and a hole-bearing fedora from the fictitious "Who Shot Grampa's Hat?".
** As Otto is staring at his hand, he sees a wedding band, saying "Oh, right, I married that chick..." probably referring to Becky from "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge".
