** Homer is a fan of ''The Count of Monte Cristo'' but doesn't pay attention when Marge retells the story to show why revenge is a bad thing. This is probably for the best as ''Marge'' completely misses the point of the story.

** Marge completely mangles ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo'' since it's the ultimate pro-revenge story. Granted [[spoiler: The Count does realize he went too far when a young boy dies and give up on his final target so it can be interpreted as revenge being bad.]]

* SelfServingMemory: Homer intends to pin the blame on attaking the Rich Texan on Maggie if he gets caught, "just like the time [he] [[Recap/TheSimpsonsWhoShotMrBurns shot Mr. Burns]]".

Added DiffLines:

** As well, the Simpson family was en route to the airport to take a flight to Hawaii (which means the first two minutes look like yet another "travel episode"), but the Rich Texan cut Homer off and Homer got upset by it. By the time he catches up to the Texan (and decides to make up), it's night already and the flight has long since departed.
