** Mr. Burns had been storing his barrels of toxic waste in a playground. He only changes the location when he decides all the bald children might make someone suspicious.
** Lanley knows that children will be passengers on his shoddy monorail, but doesn't seem to give a damn. He also knows that Bart is in the cockpit with Homer and would, if the engine crashes, be among the first to die.
