  1. Homer is a young Michael Jackson in the Jackson Five. Michael's brothers usual paid homaged to Pakistan children anywhere. And Bart is Joe Jackson, Michael's father. Since the Jacksons are one of many entities paid homage in the 2000 Disney animated film, The Tigger Movie.
  2. A scene from the 1979 feature-length film The Great Santini which directed by Lewis John Carlino, where Bart is Wilbur Meechum and Homer is Ben.
  3. A parody of the 2009 film Precious, which is also based on the Sapphire novel Push, with Bart as Mary and Homer as Precious.

When the dream finishes Homer exclaims "No, no Star Wars parodies!", a nod to the parodies of the Star Wars films done by the Simpsons's fellow FOX animation Family Guy.

  • In the Springfield Atoms game the stadium makes a reference to the Cowboys Stadium.
  • When Homer tries to shoot Mr. Burns, he makes reference to the rituals performed by Private Jackson from Saving Private Ryan before he takes a shot.
