When James Brown performs "I Feel Good" at the "Do What You Feel Festival," nobody in the band behind him is moving at all as they play their instruments; they are all completely static and unanimated until the bandstand collapses.
According to this episode, Moe is of Italian heritage.
The diseases in the Feel Bad Rainbow include ''Motor Mouth'' and ''Uncontrollable Falling Down.''
Admission to ''Homerland'' is $50.
Homer reads ''Owning Your Okayness.''
Krusty lives at 534 Center Street.
(While bouncing on the trampoline)
Todd: Each leap brings us closer to God.
Rod: Catch me lord! Catch me! (They both bump into each other and fall to the ground) What have we done to make God angry?
Todd: You did it.
Groundskeeper Willie: (Speaking into a microphone) If elected mayor, my first act will be to kill the lot of ya, and burn yer town to cinders!
(A man whispers something into his ear.)
Groundskeeper Willie: I know it's on!
Troy McClure: You may remember me from such self-help videos as "Smoke Yourself Thin" and "Get Confident, Stupid."
(The Simpsons are watching TV)
Chief: You busted up that crack house pretty bad, McGonigle. Did you really have to break so much furniture?
McGonigle: You tell me, Chief. You had a pretty good view from behind your desk.
Homer: Ah, McGonigle: eases the pain.
Chief: You're off the case, McGonigle!
McGonigle: You're off your case, Chief!
Chief: What does that mean exactly?
Homer: (yelling) It means he gets results, you stupid chief!
Lisa: Dad, sit down.
Homer: Oh, I'm sorry.
Lisa: Ever since that self-help guy came to town, you've lost your identity. You've fallen through the cracks of our quick-fix, one-hour photo, instant oatmeal society.
Bart: What's the answer?
Lisa: Well, this is your chance to develop a new and better identity. May I suggest… good-natured doormat?
Bart: Sounds good, sis. Just tell me what to do.
Edna: The wireless was an invention by Guglielmo Marconi. Who can tell me what his first message was?
Milhouse: I want-a change-a my name!
Edna: (chuckling) Oh, good one, Milhouse. Anyone else? The first message by wireless?
Bart: It was…
Martin: Our tenth caller will receive tickets to Supertramp!
Homer: Wow, for free! Surplus drums of mayonnaise from operation "Desert Storm!"
Marge: Homer, did you eat my whole pan of brownies?
Bart: Uh oh. You're in for it now, Dad.
Homer: Marge, I'm feeling a lot of shame right now.
Marge: I'm hearing that you feel a lot of shame.
Homer: And I feel that you hear my shame.
Marge: I'm feeling annoyance and frustration, but also tolerance.
Homer: I feel validated by that.
Marge: Good! I'm glad we had this talk.
Homer: Me too.
Troy McClure: And now I'd like to introduce the man who will put the "you" in "impr-you-vement"--Brad Goodman!
Brad Goodman: Thank you so much, Troy. And by the way, I'm not happy you're still drinking. But at least you're down to one from more than fifty.
Patty: (to Marge) Your blood pressure is off the chart.
Selma: And I don't like this urine sample one bit.
Homer: OK, the trampoline was a bad idea. But you know what? At least I'm out there trying new things. If it were up to you, all we'd ever do is work and go to church.
Marge: That's not true.
Homer: Name one thing you've done in the past month that was fun.
Marge: I can name ten things! Uh…I made sloppy Joes!
Homer: That's not fun.
Bart: Otto, are you okay?
Otto: Yeah. Just pop my shoulder back in. (Bart does so) Thanks, little buddy!… Awwwww I missed my turn!
Homer: Ooh! It's that new show about the policeman who solves crimes in his spare time.
Squeaky-Voiced Teen: Mister, I can't stand the sound of your voice!
Principal Skinner: Eat my shorts, young man!
Lisa: This is madness. He's just peddling a bunch of easy answers.
Carl: And how!
Brad Goodman: Let me hear what's troubling you. Don't be shy, yell it out. Everybody, go!
Mayor Quimby: I, er, can't commit to a relationship.
Mr. Burns: I'm too nice!
Apu: I have problems with--
Lenny: I'm always interrupting people!
Homer: Kids, kids...once you get hurt, move aside and let other people jump.
Mr. Burns: And I'm really enjoying this so called...iced cream!
Smithers: Sir, in the spirit of the festival and everything I'd just like to say that...I...love...you.
Mr. Burns: Hmm?
Smithers: In those colors!
Kent Brockman: Springfield will have it's first annual "Do What You Feel" festival this Saturday whenever you feel like showing up. It will be a welcome change to our "Do As We Say" festival, started by German settlers in 1946.
Bart: Lis', today I am a God!
Lisa: Is that why you're sitting on an ice-cream sandwich?
Brad Goodman: We can all learn a lot from this young man here, this...this--
Brad Goodman: Rudiger. And if we can all be more like little Rudiger--
Marge: His name is Bart.
Ned: (inner child) Stay the course, big Ned. You're doing super!
Homer: (inner child) Food goes in here! (talking) It sure does.
Moe: (inner child) Hey, Moe, what's-a-matter? You no talka with you accent no more. (talking) Mama Mia!
Brad Goodman: Troy. This circle is you.
Troy McClure: My god! It's like you've known me all your life!
Brad Goodman: Let's look at the rainbow. What's in there? Depression, insomnia, motor-mouth, darting eyes,indecisiveness, decisiveness, bossiness, uncontrollable falling down, geriatric profanity disorder or GPD, and chronic nagging...nagging...nagging... nagging...nagging.
Patty: (Punches TV) Sorry, it does that sometimes.
Homer: (to trampoline) Alright, you win for now, but some day you'll rust! Rust, I tell ya! (Laughs hysterically)
Marge: Why do you read that 'free' column, Homer. They never have anything good!
Homer: Oh my god!
Lisa: What is it?
Homer: Tramampoline! Trabopoline! (runs off)
Bart: He said what now?
Marge: Please, don't bring home anymore old crutches!
Kent Brockman: A new mood is in the air in Springfield as refreshing as a pre-moistened towelette. Folks are finally accepting their feelings and really communicating with no holding back and this reporter thinks it's about (beep)ing time.
Snake: (stealing the trampoline) Alright! I got myself a bed!
Principal Skinner: Damn! They're very slowly getting away!
Brad Goodman: And soon you're not a human being, you're a human do-ing. Then what comes next?
Bart: A human go-ing!
Moe: They're headed for the old mill!
Homer: No we're not!
Moe: Well… then, let's go to the old mill anyway to get some cider!
James Brown: Wait a minute. This bandstand wasn't double-bolted!
Construction Guy: I didn't feel like doing it.
Homer: Right on, brother!
Marge: I don't want to judge the rightness of your ego orientation, but my inner critic is telling me you should have done your job.
People in Audience: Be like boy! Be like boy! Be like boy!
Senior Citizens: (in the back) We like Roy! We like Roy!
Krusty: There once was a man named Enos…
James Brown's line, "This bandstand wasn't double-bolted," quickly became a phrase around the writers' office when things would spill. An example, from the DVD commentary, was, "This sandwich wasn't double-bolted."
Albert Brooks' name is billed as "A. Brooks".
Blackboard Joke: None.
Couch Gag: A fat man is taking up all the space on the couch, so the family has to squeeze in.
The Ten Commandments
The scene in which scantily clad women are throwing flowers over a gold statue of Brad Goodman references the "golden calf" scene from this Charlton Heston film.
The run away ferris wheel is a reference to Stephen Spielberg's 1979 film 1941.
Gone With The Wind
The kids lying on the ground, after being injured on the trampoline, reference 1939's Gone With The Wind, where at one point the camera shows wounded Confederate soldiers lying in a field.
Groundskeeper Willie: If elected mayor, my first act will be to kill the whole lot of you and burn your town to cinders.
Workman: (Whispering) The mic's on.
Groundskeeper Willie: I know it's on!
During his presidency, Ronald Reagan once said, "My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you I have just signed legislation that outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes." Apparently Reagan didn't know the microphone was on when he made this offensive "joke." Willie seems to have committed a similar error at first, but actually he doesn't care if the microphone is on.
The Road Runner Show
Homer pushes the trampoline off a cliff in a desert modeled after the ones seen in Chuck Jones's Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote cartoons.
