* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The subplot of Homer suing "The Frying Dutchman" was originally going to be one of these two stories:
** Homer getting in a feud with guest star Creator/DonRickles for making fun of him during his act. Don Rickles turned down the opportunity--accusing the writers of ripping off his act instead of parodying it.
** Homer becoming a barber. It was rejected because the writers back then didn't have Homer get a new job every episode and ignore his main job as a safety inspector for the nuclear plant. On top of that, they didn't think it was all that funny. Season 22's "Homer Scissorhands" would ultimately try out this idea.

When the Winfields (The Simpsons' neighbors who aren't the Flanderseses) decide to move to Florida to run out the clock, a new family consisting of a divorced mom named Ruth and her teenaged daughter, Laura, move in. While Bart falls for Laura (and gets his heart broken when he discovers that Jimbo Jones is her boyfriend), Homer and Marge go out to eat at Captain [=MacAllister=]'s seafood restaurant "The Frying Dutchman" -- and Homer sues the establishment for not getting his fill at the "All-You-Can-Eat" buffet.
