Secrets of a Successful Marriage


  • Troy McClure appears on IBN, the Impulse Buying Network.
  • At Maggie's first birthday, Bart and Lisa sing Armour Hot Dog's advertisement song and everyone then sings the Chicken Tonight's advertisement song after a short pause when Lisa asks if they know songs which isn't an advertisement song. 
  • On IBN, there is on the bottom of screen a sign "Limited Edition 800.000" near pictures of Itchy and Scratchy.
  • The animation cell rolled in cardboard has DO NOT ROLL stamped on it.
  • The sign at Springfield Community Center reads: "Today: Senior Citizens Swing Dance; Tomorrow: Cat Spay-A-Thon".
  • The band's name is a parody of Les Brown and His Band of Renown.
  • Homer, Marge, Grampa & Mrs. Bouvier dine at P. Piggly Hogswine's Super-Smorg.
  • The sign outside the church reads: "Private Wedding; Please Worship Elsewhere"
  • Mrs. Bouvier resides at Hal Roach Apartments - Retirement Living in the Heart of the Cemetery District.
  • A tape recorder can be seen between the floors of the Simpson home.
  • Otto drives Springfield Retirement Castle's bus.
  • The Verses Lisa and Bart sing in the Armor Hot Dog Song refer to the episodes Sleeping With the Enemy and The Heartbroke Kid and they're both Season 16 episodes. Lisa: "Skinny Kids", Bart: "Fat Kids". How could an episode from 1994 refer to episodes from 11 years later? 

Citations Edit

  • The title is a reference to the novel Lady Chatterley's Lover.
  • The ending of the episode with Grampa crashing the wedding is a spoof of the 1967 movie, The Graduate.
  • Grandpa performs the classical "roll dance" by putting bread on two forks and making it dance. The roll dance is from Charlie Chaplin's The Gold Rush. He's even almost arrested for "copying" Charlie Chaplin.
  • The chalkboard gag is a reference to a copyright notice by Major League Baseball, warning everyone that it is copyright infringement to rebroadcast, retransmit or reproduce MLB programming without permission from MLB.


  • Despite the claims of the Blue-haired Lawyer, Grandpa's immitation of Charlie Chaplin isn't violating any copyright law, as The Gold Rush has been in public domain since 1953. The Blue-Haired Lawyer is very nitpicking with immitations and retellings.
  • The delivery guy with the animation cell has yellow skin when Bart looks through the mail slot but when Bart steps out he has darker skin. He keeps the darker color when he punches Bart but in the next shot he is completely yellow again.
  • Grampa shouldn't get gas bills, since he lives in a Retirement Home. The Retirement Castle is so cheap, it would be no surprise if they made the residents pay all of the bills!
  • Grampa plays the organ at the wedding where Burns and Jackie are nearly married. How did he get up to that little room with the organ? There is no door leading into or out of the "organ room", and a sheet of glass in front of the "front" of it. Additionally, the "organ room" was not there in any previous episode. This was most likely intended as a one-time gag and not meant to be taken too seriously, though.
