Mr. Burns has The Simpsons house-sit for him while he goes to the Mayo Clinic.
- Loophole Abuse: Homer would take Mr. Burns yatch to international waters just so Moe would be able to sell beer on a weekend before 14 o'clock. One of his friends pointed out Moe could give beer. Moe was not amused.
- Self-Made Orphan: When Mr. Burns filled a form, he had to inform his parents' cause of death. He wrote "Got in my way".
- Take That: When Homer moaned that he never got any award, Marge reminded him of his Grammy, prompting him to say he meant an award worth winning. Then we're shown a disclaimer stating Homer's opinions don't necessarily reflect those of the network, who doesn't consider the Grammy an award at all.
