** Homer explains to Bart that Cheech and Chong are "the ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead of his generation." To which Bart replies: "Who are Beavis and Butt-head?"
** Homer looks up his old Cheech and Chong records in the attic. One of the magazines lying next to Bart depicts Music/FrankZappa.
** Mr. Burns attends the Cheech and Chong show and gets so high from all the marihuana smoke in the room that he mistakes Cheech and Chong for Creator/LaurelAndHardy.
