* 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.
