  • This was the first episode to air after the release of The Simpsons Movie. Also, it is the first post-movie episode. As such, it has a unique Opening Sequence:
    • In the chalkboard gag, Bart writes "I will not wait 20 years to make another movie", a reference to 2007 (the year of the movie's release) marking the 20th anniversary of the Simpsons franchise (when the Ullman Shorts are included).
      • During the skateboarding, the Multi-eyed squirrel jumps onto Bart's shoulder and tries to bite him but gets shoved off by one of "Burns Construction"'s wrecking balls.
    • Bart skateboards through a broken and damaged Springfield, currently under repair.
    • Shards of the destroyed dome and characters from the movie are visible as Bart skateboards through the streets.
    • When Homer pulls into the driveway, the "Pig Crap" silo is strapped to the roof of his car.
    • The Simpson house is being rebuilt, and is only partially done.
    • Plopper the pig appears in the couch gag, and Homer calls him "My summer love", a reference to The Simpsons Movie having been released in summer.


  • When Lionel Richie appears, Homer's glass of wine disappears.
