      The song during closing credits is "The Monster Mash" by Bobby "Boris" Pickett. The disc jockey on KBBL also plays the song at the beginning of the show in honor of Valentine's Day. He tries to explain what's romantic about it, but the other DJ just says, "You played the wrong song, didn't you?"

    • Apocalypse Now The scene of Principal Skinner's memory of Vietnam is reminiscent of the movie Apocalypse Now. The characters on the boat all resemble characters from that movie. Also, there is a picture of a soldier where Skinner was sitting. This was the picture of the person they were trying to find in the movie.

    • Krusty: You try to run, try to hide, break on through to the other side!
