Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: In one part, Grandpa gives Apu the idea "The government doesn't control the sky. What if you lived in a balloon?" Apparently, [[WesternAnimation/{{Up}} somebody at Pixar was listening.]]

to:

* MemeticMutation: This episode features Helen Lovejoy's first usage of "Won't someone PLEASE think of the children?!"children?!", a phrase that not only became synonymous with her character, but also one of the most cited examples of the ThinkOfTheChildren logical fallacy in popular culture, journalism and academia, to the point where it has been referred to as "Lovejoy's Law".


Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown: Outside this episode, Helen Lovejoy doesn't make an appeal to the children that often, and when she does it's often more as a parody of her famous quote. It hasn't stopped thinking of the children becoming the defining quirk of her character.
