    • (Bart eats a candy bar) Homer: Kids, your daddy and his daddy are involved in a very sticky, nutty, chewy, chocolatey- put it away, boy!- situation.

    • Homer: He said I was an accident. He didn't want to have me. Marge: You didn't want to have Bart. Homer: I know, but you're not supposed to tell the child! Marge: You tell Bart all the time, you told him this morning. Homer: But when I say it, it's cute!

    • Grampa: Here drink it! And think of me while you're having the best sex of your life!

    • Milhouse: The Rand Corporation, in conjuction with the saucer people... Bart: Thank you. Milhouse: ...under the supervision of the reverse vampires... Lisa: Ugh... Milhouse: ...are forcing our parents to go to bed early in a fiendish plot to eliminate the meal of dinner!

    • Grampa: Welcome home, son. I broke two lamps and lost all your mail. What's wrong with your wife? Homer: Nevermind, you wouldn't understand. Grampa: Flu? Homer: No. Grampa: Protein deficiency? Homer: No. Grampa: Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis? Homer: No. Grampa: Unsatisfying sex life? Homer: N- yes. But please, don't you say that word. Grampa: What, seeex?

    Notes (2)

    • Grandpa asks if Marge has 'pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis,' which is a lung disease caused by the inhalation of very fine silicate or quartz dust. It is also the longest word in the English language according to the Oxford English Dictionary.

    • Blackboard Joke: My homework was not stolen by a one-armed man. Couch Gag: The family runs past a constantly repeating pan of the couch and TV.

    Trivia (1)

    • Goof: When Homer leaves to go to his old house, he leaves in Marge's car, but when he arrives there, he is driving his car.

    Allusions (4)

    • The Nutty Professor Professor Frink drinks Grampa's love tonic and turns into a handsome ladies man. This is similar to the plot of the 1963 Jerry Lewis movie The Nutty Professor where he concocts a potion that transforms him from a nerdy teacher to a smooth lady-killer.

    • The X-Files When the Simpsons are buying their books, one of them sets off a trigger in the scanner that sends a signal to the White House. The music that plays during this scene is similar to The X-Files theme, implying that the book on UFO's set it off, when in reality it lets Al Gore know someone finally bought a copy of his book.

    • Blackboard Joke: My homework was not stolen by a one-armed man. A quick and funny reference to The Fugitive (TV series and movie). The main character, Richard Kimble, was convicted of killing his wife, but always maintained (truthfully, in his case), that she was actually killed by a one-armed man.

    • Milhouse: We're through the looking glass here, people. This quote is from the 1991 movie JFK, which is about the assassination of President Kennedy. The line was said by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, played by Kevin Costner.
