YMMV: The Simpsons S 11 E 22 Behind The Laughter
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Fans who suffered through this season of The Simpsons and decided to stop watching it once and for all often cite this episode as the last one, due to its non-canon nature and the alleged revelation of where Springfield is (some versions say it's in northern Kentucky while others say it's in southern Missouri).
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Homer mentions performing in a fictional sequel to RENT while split up from the rest of the family. In a later episode, he performs in La Bohème, the opera on which RENT was based.
    • Also, when the IRS take the Simpsons' mansion away, Homer laments, "They can't take our house; my potbellied pig is in there! Oh, Mr. Porky..." Homer would get another pig for a pet in The Simpsons Movie.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Jimmy Carter breakdancing
