- Music from the episode:
- "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!)" by The Beastie Boys (Heard as the coach works out.)
- "Lara's Theme" from Doctor Zhivago (As Ned and the boys head off to Pennsylvania.) (Ironic as just before this Ned states he is a Republican)
- "Bad Company" by Bad Company (Heard during the montage of Ned's first few days at work.)
- Pat Boone's version of the Little Richard song "Tutti Frutti" (Played as Ned reads the newspaper, right before Homer shows up at his door.)
- "Freeze Frame" by the J. Geils Band (Played by Mr. Largo at Ned's welcome-home party.)

- Bart acted like a dog earlier this season in On a Clear Day I Can't See My Sister.
- In this episode Ned refused to remove his mustache when Humbleton requested even though in Bart the Lover he eventually decided to remove it himself when he found out it concerned Homer.
- When Todd and Rod are playing with their teddy bears, one of them is Sir Loves a Lot, which was last seen in Trash of the Titans.
- The title is a reference to the phrase "home away from home."
- The killer from the movie Scream can be seen when Homer is searching for a babysitter.
- The scene where Ned bursts into the ornament factory is a replica of a scene from the movie If....
- Ned apes the subway grate pose, his mustache blowing up, from The Seven Year Itch.
- Taking Maggie with them would have been easier than finding a babysitter.
- When Ned Flanders rents out a room, he has a "no pagans" sign. Religious intolerance is considered a sin in all Christian denominations.
- In the church scene, Ruth Powers appears twice. Also, Sarah Wiggum is shown, but there is no sign of her husband or son.
