    • Deliverance
      When Homer and the other fathers are seperated during the father-son rafting trip, the other fathers float through a dark and gloomy swampy area looking nervous. The banjo music playing in the background and the hillbilly chuckling, hiding, and watching them is an obvious reference to the 1972 film Deliverance, which was nominated for 3 Academy Awards.
