    • Demolition Man The scene where Homer blows up the convention building and escapes in slow motion is a parody of a similar scene from the 1993 film Demolition Man.

    • Little Mermaid There's a reference to the 1989 film Little Mermaid when Homer imagines himself and his family living under the sea to escape persecution.

    • Hard Copy "Rock Bottom" is a parody of Hard Copy and other sensationalist tabloid "news" programs, which began to grow in popularity during the 1990s.

    • "Rowdy" Roddy Piper The name given to Willie, "Rowdy Roddy Peeper," at the end of the show is a pun, at the expense of wrestling legend, and former WWF Intercontinental Champion, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. The reason the name is chosen for Willie is that Canadian wrestler Roderick Toombs' on-stage persona '"Rowdy" Roddy Piper' was billed as hailing from Glasgow Scotland, and wore a kilt.

    • Sally Jessy Raphael The talk show host, moderating a discussion on estranged families reunited because of Homer, looks just like Sally Jessy Raphael.
