  • The scene in The Telltale Head where Bart wakes up next to the decapitated head of Jebediah Springfield's statue and the scene in Lisa's Pony where Lisa discovers a pony in her bed both spoof the famous "horse head in the bed" scene from "The Godfather" In Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner? a maffiosi claims he put a horse head in Homer's bed to prevent him from being a food critic ever again. It turns out that Homer simply ate the head and wrote a negative review about it.
  • When Homer imagines a life in organized crime in Last Exit to Springfield he looks just like Don Fanucci in The Godfather II.
  • In Homie the Clown when Homer and Krusty try to do the bicycle trick in front of the maffiosi Homer's head bumps against a series of wine glasses. The melody that plays as a result is a musical quote of the "Love Theme" of "The Godfather'"
  • The scene in Mr. Plow where Bart is mowed down by snow balls thrown by his school friends is a reference to the death of Sonny in "The Godfather'".
  • In A Fish Called Selma it is implied that Troy McClure has a sexual fetish for fish. When Fat Tony sees Troy McClure walking around alive and well he asks "Legs" that he told him McClure was dead? Legs answers: "No what I said was: "He sleeps with the fishes." This is a reference to the death of Luca Brasi in "The Godfather" who is thrown in the canal. Later his killers sent a dead fish to Sonny Corleone with the message: "He sleeps with the fishes."
  • In Moe Baby Blues Moe tells Maggie the plot of the three Godfather films to entertain Maggie. Moe imitates Don Corleone with an cut-up orange in his mouth, in reference to a similar scene in "The Godfather." Furthermore, he explains the entire baptism sequence to her, including the ever-popular death scene of Moe Greene, who was shot clean through the eye. Moe uses a teddy bear and points at the bear's eye to portray that Greene was shot in the eye. He later imagines the exact scene from the film when he goes searching for Maggie. Moe seems to know the film by heart, but mistakes Diane Keaton's character Kay Adams with her character Annie Hall from Woody Allen's film Annie Hall. At the end of the episode Fat Tony is emotional about Maggie and says: "I didn't cry so much, since I paid to see "Godfather III".
  • Marge beating up someone with a garbage can in The Strong Arms of the Ma is a parody of the scene in "The Godfather" where Sonny beats up his sister's husband on the streets.
  • Fat Tony's son, Michael, in The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and Her Homer is a reference to Michael Corleone from all three Godfather films. In the same episode mob goons try to assassinate Fat Tony through a window while flying in a helicopter, in reference to a similar scene in "The Godfather III". The final scene where Michael, Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney close the door before Lisa references the final scenes of "The Godfather".
