- Deleted Scene: The original TV version of this episode has an extra scene where Bart explains to the townspeople that they've lost their way as Springfieldianites by being so quick to lynch a ten-year-old boy who actually feels sorry for what he's donenote . Both network repeats and the DVD version didn't have this scene (nor does the FXX rerun of this episode as seen on the "Every Simpsons Ever" marathon), and also added in the line about "most lynch mobs not being this nice".
Bart: But I'd like to add one thing: It wasn't until I removed the head of Jebediah Springfield that we realized we were taking our heritage for granted. That was a crime, too. One I think we are all guilty of.
