- Beam Me Up, Scotty!: When Lisa trains Bart for the mini golf tournament, she tells him to "embrace nothingness". It would be the only time she said this in the entire series but this quote came up in the arcade game. It's been associated with Lisa ever since.
- The game also had Smithers saying "Welcome to my world!" before throwing bombs around, so Your Mileage May Vary.
- First Appearance: Maude Flanders, completing the whole Flanders family.
- As the episode's DVD commentary and the main page for this episode notes, this was also the first episode to feature the Flanders family prominently.
- Write What You Know: Co-writer Jeff Martin was an experienced miniature golfer and based much of the golf-related scenes in the script on his own experiences.
