  • Quotes (29)

    • Wally: Well, we sure put together a heck of a trip, Homer. Ever thought about being a travel agent? Homer: Wally, I'd be lying if I said I hadn't. Wally: 'Cause you can really "go" places in the travel business. Huh? (Laughs) Feel free to use that one. Homer: What one?

    • Bart: (sees Homer with the Super Bowl trophy) Dad, that doesn't belong to you. Homer: But this might be my last chance to win one.

    • Reporter #1: How does it feel? Reporter #2: Was it a team effort? Reporter #3: Did you ever stop believing? Reporter #4: Does this suit make me look fat?

    • Wally: Oh, how could I fall for fake tickets? Gee, the fellas are gonna be crestfallen. Homer: Yes, if by "crestfallen" you mean "kill us!" Listen, let me talk to them, maybe I can smooth this over…..My friends … Krusty: They don't have the tickets! Moe: Kill 'em!

    • Ticket-Taker: Uh, sorry, fellas, but these tickets are counterfeit. Wally: What? Homer: Counterfeit?! Ticket-Taker: Yeah, see, the hologram's missing … and there's no such team as the "Spungoes" … and finally, they seem to be printed on some sort of cracker. (takes a bite of one) Homer: Stop eating our tickets!

    • Music from this episode "Wild Weekend" by NRBQ "Song 2" by Blur "Legs" by ZZ Top

    • Caricature-drawing Troy Aikman's line ("You like dune buggies? Everybody likes dune buggies!") is a reference to a similar line from a caricature artist drawing almost identical pictures in Season 4's "Lisa the Beauty Queen" ("You like roller skating? Everybody likes roller skating!")

    Allusions (5)

    • The coach in Homer's fantasy about going to the Super Bowl bears a striking similarity to long time Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry.

    • The use of Vincent Price in the phone message is a reference to a fake radio commercial for Coke that used sound bites of Vincent Prince from his films.

    • Homer: No Rudy, you're too small. Rudy is a young boy who wants to play football for Notre Dame, but is told he's "too small." Based on a true story and made into a 1993 film.

    • Rupert Murdoch's security guards: Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!...
      The Aussie-sounding "Oi! Oi! Oi! Oi!" uttered by Rupert Murdoch's security guard as they march into his Super Bowl suite is reminiscent of the Chicago Police SWAT team's constant "Hut! Hut! Hut! Hut!" heard in 1980 film The Blues Brothers as they close in Jake and Elwood at the Cook County Registrar of Deeds.

    • Episode Title: Sunday, Cruddy Sunday
      The title Sunday, Cruddy Sunday is a reference to the U2 song Sunday, Bloody Sunday, which references events in the 1970s where British soldiers killed Irish citizens.
