Cultural references Edit

  • The title of the episode is a reference to the play My Fair Lady.
    • This episode is the second to make a reference to this play; the other is "My Fair Laddy" from season 17.
    • This is the third Simpsons to open as a Hanna-Barbera parody. The opening is parodying "The Jetsons" theme song. Other episodes to have Hanna-Barbera opening parodies are: "Marge vs. the Monorail", Homer leaving work a la Flintstones and "When You Dish Upon a Star", Homer dreams him, Bart and Ned Flanders are Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo Bear and Ranger Smith. Homer even quotes George Jetson's line: "Stop this crazy thing." Instead of "Jane," he says "Marge."
  • Mr. T is shown in the opening sequence.
  • Bender from "Futurama" appears in "The Jetsons" opening parody at the start of this episode.
  • Bart has a hat that is similar to Ash hat from Pokemon.
  • This episode plot is very similar to the Uber App polemic, an app that allows normal drivers to carpool, wich was seen as unwanted competition by taxi companies. This caused massive protests and even attacks to people who get any profit using this app, similar to how the taxi drivers wanted to attack Marge because of her carpooling service.

Trivia Edit

  • Bart doesn't have any lines in this episode. Also, Lisa's only lines are "Oh, mom! Someone wants you to give them a ride!"
  • This is the second time Homer watches Moe's bar. The first time was in the Season 13 episode: "Homer the Moe".
  • Continuity: Moe mentions Elon Musk and that The Springfield Nuclear Power Plant lost money because of him from the episode: "The Musk Who Fell to Earth".  In the next episode: "The Princess Guide",  Mr. Burns  also mentions him.
  • In the couch gag, when Bart makes the skate stunt, The Be Sharps can be seen singing on top of Moe's
  • Despite appearing only in the couch gag as a cameo this episode marks the first appearance of Troy McClure in 17 years.
