      When Jay's plane is arriving at the Springfield Airport, it cuts off another plane on the runway. We here the pilot shout "Hey, I'm landing here!" This is a reference to the famous scene where Dustin Hoffman's character Ratso is nearly hit by a car crossing the street. Ratso proceeds to bang on the hood of the car while shouting: "Hey, I'm walking here!"
