When the ''Series/MadMen'' expies show up and offer him money to kill more celebrities, upon using the money as a fan, he tries to pry more money out of them by saying he was hot. After they do give him more, he then whines that he's ''too cold'' and gives the extra cash back.

* FantasticRacism [=/=] AtLeastIAdmitIt: The ''Grand'' Pumpkin cares nothing about yellow pumpkins being carved, going as far as to proudly admitting that he and all other pumpkins are racist.

* {{Bowdlerization}}: The UK airing of this episode cuts out the scene in the second story of Homer killing Prince by strangling and stabbing him with the guitar shaped like the symbol he used as his name in the 1990s (though the scenes of George Clooney and Neil Armstrong getting murdered were left in, possibly because Prince's death was bloody and can easily be imitated while Clooney's and Armstrong's deaths[[note]]Clooney is sucked into quick-drying cement when he imprints his hands outside the Mann's Chinese theater and Armstrong is hit with a golf club after a very long Rube Goldberg-style sequence[[/note]] were too cartoonish to be considered a threat).
** The UK version also cuts the scene from "Untitled Transformers Parody" with the Sex Toy Bot.
