- Cargo Ship: This episode pretty much canonizes Homer loving television more than his own family. He spends days at Lenny's place, cites TV as a reason to do the wife swap (even calling Lisa "TVsa"), and sings a song about him and television at the end.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The episode was more well received in the UK than in the US and became the show's highest rated episode ever there with 2.18 million viewers watching it during its premiere on Sky 1. This partly due to heavy publicity towards Ricky Gervais' guest starring role and involvement as writer of the episode.
