    • (Cornelius "attacks" Bart) Bart: Want to try again? Cornelius: I merely hoped to prevent you from stabbing my Pachycerus. Bart: Your what? Cornelius: The cactus. She's female and very delicate. Bart: I'm sorry. I was so thirsty I, uh, I didn't even notice the sex. Cornelius: Her spines are bruised but … I think she'll be alright. Bart: Bart: Well, that's a relief. Do you get this worked up over every cactus? Cornelius: It's the love of my life.

    • Bart (having lost all his money to Cornelius): Where did you say you learned the game? Cornelius: Harvard. Now maybe this'll teach you to take off your hat the next time the Crimson passes. Bart: Uh, you've already taken my shirt. Now don't get greedy.

    • (Bart picks up a Turkish newspaper, written in Arabic script) Hakime: If you don't mind, that belongs to me. Bart: Oh, by all means. I, uh, I was merely curious about the weather in Constantinople. Bart's comment, and the Turkish man on the train, are references to Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express (1934). In that classic mystery, detective Hercule Poirot boards a train in Istanbul, which was still named Constantinople at the time of Bart's adventure. In the novel, Poirot uncovers a murderous conspiracy. Here, Bart discovers that several passengers are trying to get rid of him, or rather, the man he's pretending to be - Cornelius Rensselaer.
