- Deleted Scene: The 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 . The DVD version doesn't have this scene (nor does the FXX rerun of this episode as seen on the "Every Simpsons Ever" marathon), and according to Word of God, the TV-exclusive scene was shoehorned because FOX wanted the episode to have a moral about people losing their town pride (never mind that there was already a moral in this episode — subtle ones about not giving in to peer pressure and taking personal responsibility for your actions, even if it means your life at the hands of a bloodthirsty town).
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.
