  • Fanon Discontinuity: Some fans who dislike season 11 see 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.
