The title of the episode is a reference to the television show The Good Wife.
Homer takes Bart and Lisa to the E4 convention (Expensive Electronic Entertainment Expo), a parody of the annual E3 videogame convention. The sequence parodies many franchises and products from the videogame industry:
Ratatouille: The meth lab worker's revelation about food, complete with zoom in through his eye into his memory of his childhood, is an allusion to Anton Ego's experience when he eats the ratatouille Remy prepared for him.
The Swedish Chef from "The Muppets" television series appears in the episode.
The Ethiopian pop song heard on the soundtrack is "Nama," performed by Fikre-Addis Nekatebeb.
This episode shows that the family have at least four computers (Three laptops and the personal computer in Lisa's bedroom).
When Lisa is playing Marching Band, a screen with various college logos is displayed. One of the colleges, Ohio State University, only has the "OS" when in reality, it is always abbreviated as "OSU".
