-->'''Wiggum:''' Your boy picked a bad time to go fall down a well. If he'd done it at the start of the fishcal year, no problemo.

** The musical sting heard briefly when Bart tries to retrieve his radio from the well is similar to "Axel F", the theme of ''Film/BeverlyHillsCop'' (and which was also heard in season three's "Separate Vocations" and season four's "Marge vs. The Monorail").
** The Funky See, Funky Do musical duo, whose song "I Do Believe We're Naked" knocked "We're Sending Our Love Down the Well" from the number one spot, resemble a composite of members from Music/MilliVanilli and Kid n' Play.
