* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Ironically, the "fact" that kicked off the entire episode was wrong: while the Coriolis effect is real, it's too weak to affect the direction of your average draining vortex, which is far more affected by stuff like the shape of the recipient, meaning the entire plot is just an excuse for The Simpsons to wreak havoc in another country.

** When the Simpsons arrive in Australia and Lisa tells Homer "it's summer here, not winter" he disappointingly throws his sled away.

** Bart's joke: "I hear a dingo eating your baby" is a reference to ''Film/EvilAngels'' (better known as ''A Cry in the Dark''), based on the real life 1980 mysterious disappearance of baby Azaria Chamberlain. His mother claimed he was snatched away by a dingo, fell under suspicion of having murdered him herself, but during her jail time new evidence did point out that the child might have been eaten by a dingo after all.
** When the plane lands in Australia we see rubble from Skylab under the airport's ground.
** The Australian showing Bart a spoon rather a knife is a reference to Film/CrocodileDundee, where the knife welding robber change his tune when he saw Dundee's large Bowie knife. Dundee already appeared earlier in this episode during the slideshow the American representative displayed.
** Wez from ''Film/MadMax 2: The Road Warrior'' can be seen in the crowd chasing after The Simpsons.
** When the Simpsons leave the embassy by helicopter it's a direct shout-out a famous photo of the Americans leaving Vietnam after the Communist takeover in 1975.

* TheEndOrIsIt: Upon seeing that the offspring of Bart's frog are eating all of Australia's crops, Lisa notes "That's what happens when you introduce a species to an ecosystem that can't handle them." The camera then pans to a koala hanging on the helicopter's skid, and [[StaggeredZoom zooms ominously]] on its face.

* [[SmarterThanYouLook Smarter Than He Looks]]: Bart's epic taunt for the Australians: he [[spoiler: moons them with the message, "Don't Tread on Me", written on his buttocks]]. Even Lisa is amazed the message was clear and legible.
