** The laser gun scene and Bont's "do you expect me to talk?" line are a nod to ''Film/Goldfinger''.

* ShoutOut: The titles references the Film/JamesBond film ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice''. The final battle in the hollowed-out volcano parodies the one from YOLT, right down to a bikini-clad heroine taking part in it.

Added DiffLines:

*NoPoverty: A TimePassesMontage shows an ugly suburb transforming into the perfect community of Cypress Creek; parking meters become trees, abandoned warehouses become coffee shops, and a bum becomes a mailbox. Somewhat justified by Scorpio being a megalomaniacal Franchise/JamesBond villain who's ''ridiculously'' good at [[NoDelaysForTheWicked administration]] - enough so that from that one town, he manages to '''conquer the West Coast.'''''

* VisualGag: In the scene where Hank and Homer discuss their dreams, [[https://frinkiac.com/gif/S08E02/518800/524223.gif they are first shown walking, but the background somehow wasn't moving]]. The camera pulls back to reveal [[https://frinkiac.com/img/S08E02/526525.jpg they were actually walking on treadmills]]. They then step off, but then [[https://frinkiac.com/gif/S08E02/527359/530279.gif they stop walking, yet the background continues to move]]. The camera pans further back to show that [[https://frinkiac.com/img/S08E02/534867.jpg they are actually standing on]] ''[[WesternAnimation/TheJetsons Jetsons]]''-style moving sidewalks.
