Trivia: The Simpsons S 4 E 10 Lisas First Word
  • Stunt Casting: In perhaps the biggest example of this in Simpsons history, Elizabeth Taylor as the voice of Maggie. (Taylor returns at the end of Season 4 as herself in "Krusty Gets Kancelled", and gets two lines in that episode.) The writers soon regretted this as they spent hours trying to get Taylor to say, "Daddy" like a one-year-old child and not a 20-to-30 year old seductress.
    • The Other Darrin: When the ending of the episode was put into the clip show episode "Gump Roast", Liz Taylor's "Daddy" line was replaced with the same line as done by series regular Nancy Cartwright (who usually does vocal effects for Maggie, such as crying, cooing, and laughing).
  • Throw It In: Homer's line, "Bart can kiss my hairy, yellow butt" after Marge worries that Bart will be jealous of Lisa was ad-libbed (and almost didn't get used as the censors thought the line would be construed as pedophilic, when really to tell someone to "kiss your butt [or ass]" is used as a rude brush-off, not a sexual come-on).
