* ShoutOut: Quite a few to Music/TheBeatles once the [=McCartney=]s show up. For instance, Linda tells Lisa "Whenever we're in Springfield, we like to hang out in Apu's garden in the shade.", referencing the song "Octopus' Garden". Paul had first met Apu while the Beatles were in India with the Maharishi in 1968, leading Apu to say "Back then, I was the fifth Beatle", pronouncing "Beatle" as "[[AccentUponTheWrongSyllable Be-At-Tull]]", just like the Eastern cult members from ''Film/{{Help}}''.

* EditedForSyndication: The "You Don't Win Friends With Salad" part is cut in syndication (free TV, not the reruns on the cable channel FXX) to remove Marge joining in and Lisa protesting, with Marge stating that she was only in the conga line because the song was catchy, not to take sides.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The episode itself can be interpreted as coping with discrimination of nationalities and sexualities. Especially the parts where Homer speaks about how all normal people aren't vegetarians and Apu teaching Lisa about tolerating people's opinions then influencing them through patience.
