Trivia Edit

  • Lisa barely appears in this episode, and Maggie doesn't appear at all. However, Maggie does appear in a deleted scene.
  • Werner Klemperer who voices Colonel Klink in this episode did not use Klink's real voice. He instead used the director's imitation of Klink, as he forgot how Klink talked after Hogan's Heroes was cancelled.
  • The duck who works at the nuclear power plant is named Stewart.
  • Smilin' Joe Fission from "Homer's Odyssey" appears on the sign behind Homer and Mindy in the energy convention.
  • The sign at the hotel says "Capital City Hotel": Legionnaire's Disease-free since 1990.'
  • Barry White's song "Can't Get Enough of You Babe" was last heard in "Whacking Day."
  • The trees in Homer's vision of Marge living in the white house look just like her hair.
  • The man with the very large hand is voiced by Dan Castellaneta and Dan actually uses his regular voice.
  • The guy in the radiation suit in the beginning looks just like Homer when he is wearing it in the opening titles.
  • Capital City was last featured in "Dancin' Homer." A few bars from Tony Bennett's song "Capital City" play when the Capital City skyline is shown in this episode.
  • First appearance of Mindy Simmons. She would make her second appearance in a non-speaking role in "Team Homer".
  • While trying to tell Mindy that they should avoid each other, Homer referenced a Buddhist chant (Nam Myoho Renge Kyo) and John Wilkes Booth. ("Sic semper tyrannis.")
  • Bart has a poster of rocket in his bedroom.
  • This was the first of two episode titles to reference "The Last Temptation of Christ", the second being season 9's episode "The Last Temptation Of Krust".

Citations Edit

  • "The Last Temptation of Christ": Titles parodies the novel/film.
  • "The Nutty Professor": Bart's nerd voice and look resembles Jerry Lewis in the 1963 film.
  • "Mandy": The song Homer sings about Mindy and Marge at the end is to the tune of this song.
  • "Big Apple": Capital City is named the "Windy Apple" a reference to New York City's nickname the "Big Apple" and Chicago's nickname the "Windy City."
  • "The Wizard of Oz": Mr Burns keeps a number of the winged monkeys in a cage, to unleash on people who charge room service to the company. When Homer and Mindy do so, Burns sends them off to attack with the infamous line "Fly, my pretties! Fly!" Unfortunately, because the monkeys can't actually fly, they all plummet to their deaths. Burns groans at this, then tells Smithers to "continue the research."
  • "I Dream of Jeannie": When Homer thinks about 'unsexy thoughts', he images Barney in a bikini singing the 'I Dream of Jeannie' theme tune.

GoofsEdit

  • There is a lift inside of a cooling tower at Springfield Nuclear Power Plant, but it isn't useful there and there also isn't exit from it. Despite that, Homer gets off from the lift and slips on the wall of the chimney.
