--->'''Lisa:''' These Super Bowl commercials are weird...


** Also, no mention is made of Homer being the owner of the Denver Broncos, as shown at the end of Season 8's "You Only Move Twice". [[{{FridgeBrilliance}} Though this might explain how he was allowed to take the Vince Lombardi Trophy home at the end]].

* {{Bowdlerization}}: In yet another joke that pissed off the Catholic League after its premiere (see "Lisa Gets an A"), the Super Bowl commercial featuring three sexy ladies servicing a man's car had "Catholic" removed from the tagline, "The Catholic Church: We've made a few...''changes''" on all reruns (including Sky One's UK airing and barring American syndication -- both free-to-air and cable TV) The DVD and the "Every Simpsons Ever" marathon had the original line.

* CausticCritic: John Madden at first praises this episode for the inclusion of Wally Kogen and Marge and Lisa's subplot, but when informed that it featured no actual football or singing despite being a Super Bowl show with Dolly Parton, his attitude changes and feels ripped off.
-->'''Madden:''' What a way to treat the loyal fans who put up with so much nonsense from this franchise.\\
'''Summerall:''' Any final thoughts?\\
'''Madden:''' Nah, I'm too mad. Let's get the heck out of here.



* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Homer, Bart, and Wally bring the following characters along to their Super Bowl trip: Moe, Barney, Lenny, Carl, Ned Flanders, Apu, the Sea Captain, the Bumblebee Man, Comic Book Guy, the Squeaky Voiced Teen, the Blue Haired Lawyer, Krusty the Clown, Sideshow Mel, Dr. Nick, Charlie, Dr. Hibbert, Kirk Van Houten, Reverand Lovejoy, Jasper Beardly, the Crazy Jewish Man, Chief Wiggum, and Principal Skinner. With so many characters joining the trip, shots of the whole crowd tend to have trouble maintaining who is present.

* BrickJoke: After Marge apparently gets Vincent Price himself on the phone line she calls to complain about the lack of feet on her kit (see ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated below), Price appears on the flesh at the epilogue as the driver of the bus the Super Bowl commenters use to leave the stadium (turns out he's not used to DriveStick).
