Citations Edit

  • The action sequence at the candy convention is based on every Bruce Willis movie ever made.
  • Homer's imagination of living underwater is a parody of the song "Under the Sea" from the Disney film The Little Mermaid. David Mirkin says he thought the sequence would be funny because Homer would eat all of the characters from the film.
  • The news coverage showing Homer knocked out in the bathroom with the shower curtain draped over him, and the voice-over saying he slept in an oxygen tent believing it would enhance his sexual powers, is a reference to widespread tabloid rumors saying that Michael Jackson slept in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber in an attempt to slow the aging process.


  • Originally, the episode was supposed to center around Lisa and Homer arguing over how men and women get away with certain things in society ("the double standard"), but David Mirkin thought it would be funnier to make fun of how the media likes to sensationalize news stories in the name of ratings, as the O.J. Simpson murder trial was occurring around the same time as this episode's premiere.
  • First ever episode to be rated 12 in the United Kingdom due to moderate sexual references (including themes of sexual harassment and voyeurism).
  • This is the second time a Simpson had a movie based on a misunderstood incident involving them, the first time being Bart the Murderer.


  • When Homer says "Okay, don´t panic! She can't gone far! She has no arms!", Maggie's bow is missing.
  • The flag that Marge claims to have 49 stars really only has 38.
  • When Marge's coat pocket rips a huge pile of candy spills out but then in the next shot all the candy is gone.
