* DeletedScene and WhatCouldHaveBeen: Mr. Burns casually locking Homer out of the mansion after Homer dares Burns to do his worst was originally supposed to be the infamous sequence where Burns sics a robot replica of flamboyant fitness guru Richard Simmons on Homer, only for it to malfunction and explode after Smithers shoots it in the eye. The writers have claimed that this sequence wasn't all that funny (to them and the test audience), but became a smash during college lectures and animation conventions. The scene was also included on the season seven ClipShow episode [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS7E10TheSimpsons138thEpisodeSpectacular "The Simpsons' 138th Episode Spectacular."]]
** Richard Simmons was also supposed to voice his robotic counterpart, but turned it down because he didn't want to voice himself as a robot. Creator/HankAzaria was brought in as his replacement.

Mr. Burns marks Bart as the heir to his fortune, and has him moved into his mansion to learn the ways of being evil.

to:

After nearly drowning in his bathtub, Mr. Burns marks realizes that, [[FridgeHorror if he did die, there'd be no one to carry on his wealth and legacy]][[note]]for those who ask, "What about Smithers?", Mr. Burns explains that his faithful assistant will be buried alive with him[[/note]], since he has no children[[note]]at least not until season eight's "Burns Baby Burns"[[/note]], so he holds an audition for his next heir. When all the kids (including Bart as and Lisa) lose out, Bart vandalizes Burns' house and wins a place in the heir to his fortune, and has him moved into his mansion to learn old man's heart...but the ways of being evil. more he stays with Mr. Burns, the more The Simpsons fear that Bart is becoming Burns-like.

** The part during the deleted scene where the robotic Richard Simmons gets shot in the face, which regenerates, spoofs a similar scene from ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''.
** When Mr. Burns sees Bart from his window and asks what that day is, a random kid claims it's Christmas. In ''AChristmasCarol'', Ebenezer Scrooge interacts with a random kid that way after seeing how the future will be if he doesn't learn his lesson.

''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''. Smithers taking a sawn-off pump shotgun out of his jacket in the same scene spoofs how Kyle Reese carried a shotgun in ''Film/TheTerminator''.

* CrazyPrepared: As the commentary points out, there's no logical reason for Krusty to have a map of the Falkland Islands on his show unless he was ready for it to be invaded.
