** Mr. Burns simply gives the dollar bill to the president of Cuba, who is an extremely corrupt man. When Mr. Burns asks him to give it back, the president just asks what, taking the money away and putting Mr. Burns, Smithers, and Homer on a meager rack in the middle of the ocean.

Homer (like most of us in RealLife) waits until the last minute to file his tax return, and the IRS has jailtime in store for Homer -- unless Homer plays spy to retrieve a trillion-dollar bill that Mr. Burns was supposed to deliver to post-WorldWarII Europe to pay for reconstruction and stimulate the economy.

* DiscoDan: Mr. Burns' out-of-touch-with-the-times tendencies are in full display here. He thinks Homer is a reporter for ''Collier's'', which had ceased publication in 1957 (although it was briefly revived in 2012), and while in Cuba, has no idea Batista was no longer in power. He also identifies a taxi as "the new Packard they've been talking about."

* ExactWords: Doubles with PoliceAreUseless. When Homer, Smithers and Burns escape from Burns' mansion, Chief Wiggum receives a radio message to look out for Burns' maroon-coloured car. When it drives by, Wiggum notes the car is more of a burgundy and does nothing.
