** Bart and Lisa running around to the tune of Music/IggyPop's "Lust For Life", while Maggie climbs the ceiling upside down are references to Film/{{Trainspotting}} (which is set in Scotland rather than England.)
** The two British gentlemen willing to bet whether they could teach Bart and Lisa proper manners is a reference to the plot of Film/MyFairLady, based on Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw 's play Theatre/{{Pygmalion}}.
** Homer entering the Queen bedroom is similar to a 1982 incident where a man intruded in Queen Elizabeth II's bedroom, because he was inspired by the novel Literature/TheBFG.
** Marge scolds Music/{{Madonna}} that "real ladies don't tank naked." This is a reference to a famous picture in Madonna's book "Sex", in which she is seen standing in the nude near the side of a highway, lifting for drivers by while holding an empty can of gasoline. This was also around the time she was married to Guy Richie and inexplicably attempted to adapted a British accent.
