Cultural References

  • The title and the episode itself pays homage to the 2014 award-winning movie "Boyhood" by Richard Linklater.
  • After Bart destroyed the street lamps, Chief Wiggum refers to the act as "A Lightmare on Elm Street", a reference to the horror movie A Nightmare on Elm Street.
  • Milhouse references the song 'My Girlfriend Who Lives in Canada,' from the musical, Avenue Q.
    • However, Milhouse insists on calling the fake girlfriend Alberta and saying that she's from Alberta, so that it'll be easier to not be caught on the lie. This is a reference to the part of the song where Rod (the character who sings the song) says the that his supposed girlfriend, "Alberta", is from Vancouver but slips up at the end of the song by saying, "Soon I'll be off to Alberta."

  • During the second time period, Homer's hair resembles how it looked when he was briefly drawn in Family Guy's art style during his brawl with Peter Griffin in "The Simpsons Guy".


  • This episode suggests that Lisa was the one who painted the boat painting above the couch, but in the episodes "The Trouble with Trillions" and "The War of Art", it's said that Marge (and later Klaus) painted it.
  • When Bart is making caricatures, there's a red sign showing some of his drawings, but when he talks with "Nothing" Stu, the sign is gone.
  • The family is growing up in this episode (also the others) but remain the same voices.
    • This happened because the viewers wanted to see who the characters were. Bart's voice is different at the end of the episode.
    • This also happened in Holidays of Future Passed.
  • According to Abe's age, Abe is 65 in 2018, but in Million-Dollar Abie, Abe says he is 83.
