Cultural References

  • The episode's title is a reference to the film Apocalypse Now. The show has spoofed the movie lots of times.
  • The cartoon called Transclownomorphs is a parody of Transformers.
  • Bart drives the harvester and turns manure into DVDs of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
  • When Lou is being sent off, Bart says, "Here's lookin' at you cud," a reference to Humphrey Bogart's famous line, "Here's lookin' at you kid."
  • The blackboard gag is a reference to 'Horton Hears a Who' by Dr. Seuss.
  • Mary's middle name is "Wrestlemania" which is the biggest pay-per-view of WWE.


  • As Lou leaves on the flight to India, the national anthem of France is played instead. This is a reference to a similar scene from the end of Casablanca and not a mistake or joke.
  • According to Marge, Bart "still sits in the driveway and pretends to drive the car".
  • Brandine Spuckler was 13 when she married Cletus and she had already been divorced 4 times before that, and his father. However, this is probably a criticising reference to yokels marrying over and over again.
  • The animal sound tape Lisa played for Bart said "Tress MacNeille" on the cover and when Homer is entering the killing floor of the slaughterhouse he hears a voice say "You are now entering the killing floor", Homer then comments "Hmm, that sounds like Tress MacNeille". Tress MacNeille is a voice actress on the show who voices lots of extra-characters as well as some recurring characters such as Dolph, Agnes Skinner and Mona Simpson.
  • Homer seems to have gotten over his fear of sock puppets.
  • This is the second episode where Bart makes a meaningful reference to one of his catchphrases. The first was The Father, the Son and the Holy Guest Star.
