* CallBack: The "Pin Pals" shirt John found at Goodwill is Homer's from "Team Homer" (even though it wouldn't fit John, given how fat Homer is. On top of that, "Team Homer" showed that Homer's Pin Pal shirt got ripped when he was attacked by Mr. Burns' hounds).

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: The reason Homer thought the cigarette ad would cure Bart. Ironically, the billboard could be interpreted as displaying homosexuality. [[DoubleStandard But Homer apparently only discriminates againsts homosexual men, not homosexual women]], like [[RealityIsUnrealistic a lot of entertainment media and men do in real life]].

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In one scene, John is gossiping with Marge. He says that Hellen Lovejoy's hair is blonde, but he's heard that "cuffs and collars don't match," which is another way of saying "The drapes doesn't match the carpet," which is used when the hair on a woman's head doesn't match the hair in her pubic area (assuming the woman has pubic hair).

* NWordPrivileges: Homer berates John for using the word "queer" because "that's our word for making fun of you. We need it!" [[{Bowdlerization}} It's obvious that the word "queer" was supposed to be "fag" or "faggot,"]] but it was most likely shot down by the censors when the script was drafted, considering the backstage story of how this episode was almost banned for content and, at the last minute, was allowed to air, but only with changes to the script.

** BannedEpisode: Barely averted. Because the episode centered on homosexuality and homophobia (which in the late 1990s, was still taboo unless it was for dramatic purposes), FOX did not want it to air. It wasn't until a change in management happened that the episode was allowed to air, albeit with some suggestive and/or homophobic lines removed and modified to fit primetime TV standards.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: This episode originally went by the title "Lisa Goes to Camp" and followed a similar plot, only it didn't have the John Waters-esque antique dealer in it.
** This episode would have been [[BannedEpisode pulled for content]] had FOX not change its management.
** The third act originally involved Homer returning to the steel mill to participate in a tractor pull.
** Finally, John's line "Do you know would like [Homer]? My landlord." was originally "..my father", but was changed at Waters' request. (Waters didn't want to imply his actual father was intolerant of Waters' sexuality.)
