Trivia

General

Production information

  • Terry W. Greene and Ben Schatz were credited for playing guest voices in this episode but had unknown roles and have been rumored to play Julio. The Complete Guide said that Ben Schatz played himself.
  • Karl from "Simpson and Delilah" was supposed to reprise his role (appearing as one of Homer's gay roommates), but Harvey Fierstein turned the part down.
  • Grady is voiced by openly gay comedian Scott Thompson, while Julio is voiced by Hank Azaria, who uses a gay lisp similar to the one his character used in the movie The Birdcage.
  • "Weird Al" Yankovic appeared as himself again in the Season 19 episode "That '90s Show."
  • In the DVD commentary, Al Jean refers to himself as "Non-Weird Al," and Carolyn Omine introduces herself as "Weird Carolyn Omine," as one of Omine's ideas led to the development of the episode.

Continuity

  • Homer's Pin Pals T-shirt from "Team Homer" and Mr. Plow jacket from "Mr. Plow" are seen in the cupboard. His Pin Pals shirt was last seen in the ownership of John, so Homer must have gotten it back.
  • When Homer argues with Marge over breakfast, she mentions they have been married for 10 years. However, they celebrated their 11th anniversary in "Natural Born Kissers". In Dangers on a Train they would also celebrate their 10th anniversary.
  • This episode seems to destroy Homer being anti-gay, especially a few years later when he embraced the gay culture albeit just to wed gay people and earn money ("There's Something About Marrying").

Cultural references

  • The episode's title is a pun on the 1975 movie Three Days of the Condor.
  • The song West End Girls by Pet Shop Boys play when Homer is in the store experimenting with clothes with Julio and Grady.
  • "Weird Al" Yankovic's song "Homer and Marge" is a parody of John Mellencamp's song "Jack & Diane".
    • Homer also mentions sending Al his lyrics for two parody songs, "Livin' la Pizza Loca" (a parody of Ricky Martin's "Livin' la Vida Loca") and "Another One Bites the Crust" (a parody of Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust"). Notably, Al has parodied "Another One Bites the Dust" before, with the song "Another One Rides the Bus".
  • Homer refers to Maggie as Silent Bob.
  • The restaurant Homer and Marge eat at is a parody of Medieval Times.
  • When Homer was looking for the missing puzzle piece in the wardrobe he said, "Come out and play" was from the movie The Warriors.

Goofs

  • There were no egg shells nor beer cans on the floor when Homer was eating breakfest.
  • Beside Kirk's sofa there was a door with no doorknob. In the next shot, there is a corner wall.
  • There were no tram lines at the gay neighborhood when Homer first walks around it, but they appear when he was talking to Smithers.
