* ArtShift: As of this episode, the show fully switched over to digital paint. The difference between the two styles can fully be seen in the scene where the killer is revealed, which includes a {{Flashback}} to the events of "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS8E23HomersEnemy Homer's Enemy]]." Like the previous two instances (Season 7's "Radioactive Man" and Season 12's "Tennis the Menace"), it wasn't well-received, since at the time of this episode's airing in 2002, digital ink was not very common and traditional cel animation wouldn't become defunct until three years later.[[note]]To say ''nothing'' about the shift to HD a few seasons later[[/note]]

** Homer does this twice with being voted King of Mardi Gras: First when Marge points out that Homer's leaving himself exposed to the killer, Homer tells her not to "embarrass (him) in front of the drag queen." Then, when Bob states that the killer stuffed the ballots so that Homer would be elected, going so far as to show that ''all'' the votes for Homer have the same handwriting, Homer responds with "Nevertheless, the people have spoken."
