- Crossdressing Voices: Taken to an extreme with the adult male supervisor of the construction site Bart messes around with having a voice exactly like Bart's, complete with Nancy Cartwright supplying his voice."Hey, can't you tell my voice from a ten-year-old kid's?! Ay carumba!"
- Edited for Syndication: The scene during the end of act one where all the teachers leave after the strike is called where Mr. Largo's class plays "Pop Goes the Weasel" (which Mr. Largo banned from being played) now that Mr. Largo isn't here is cut from network TV syndication, making act one end on the scene of the little girl stuck on the gymnastic rings yelling for her gym teacher Mrs. Pummelhorst to let her down. Versions shown on FX, FXX, the DVDs, and Disney Plus have it uncut.
- Write What You Know: Much of the episode is based on David Mirkin's experience as a child with schools running out of money.
