Cultural references Edit
- The episode title is a pun on the film The Parent Trap.
- Which is ironic seeing that Bart and Homer get attached together, rather than separated.
- "Dang Me" by Roger Miller is the song playing on the car radio at the end of the episode.
- One of the sound effects Bill and Marty use in their show is the line "Damn dirty apes" from the movie Planet of the Apes.
- In addition to the $40 prize for the winning the radio contest, Homer also receives a Blue Öyster Cult medallion. "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" by B.Ö.C. is also played over the closing credits.
- Judge Constance Harm indicates she was born male when she tells Bart he reminds her of herself when she was a little boy. Snake is shocked by this, and says, "Did she say she used to be a dude?!"
- In this episode, Judge Snyder's first name is revealed to be Roy.
- As an inside joke, Snake was seen in the Juvenile Courthouse. The writers put him in because the crime he committed was against a child.
- Bart and Homer are able to change their clothes despite them being tethered together.
