Even though the characters refer to the signal to call the volunteer firefighters as a "fire siren," it actually makes the noise of a bell ringing (similar to a school bell or older fire alarm) instead of a siren.
Music From This Episode:
"Frankenstein" by The Edgar Winter Group
"Sad Eyes" by Robert John
While Mr. Burns lies on the power lines near his mansion he states, that he attended Yale. After that he starts singing Boola, which was written by Allan M. Hirsch, from the Yale Class of 1901, and sung by the Yale Glee Club.
Moe's business card first reads "villain" as his profession, he printed a new version on the back of his old ones which reads "hero". The villain is the bad guy or heavy, the characters who strive against the hero. As a villain Moe looks like the most bad guys in old silent movies, having a typical Victor-Emanuel-Beard and a face showing his insanity.
In a few scenes, Maggie was seen with her pacifier, yet Marge threw it away and Homer was unable to find the same brand.
This is the second time that Apu, Moe, and Principal Skinner are shown as volunteer firefighters since Season 4's "Homer the Heretic".
Apparently, raisins are gradually killing Abe.
Marge: I'm sorry, Maggie, but growing up means giving up the things you love.
Grampa: It's true. I had to give up everything but raisins, and the doctor says even those are killing me. Sweet, plump coffin nails they are.
Homer: We're not thieves. We're scavengers. Like the beautiful vulture, or the heroic tapeworm, or America's sweetheart, the maggot.
Homer: Look at me, guys! I'm stealing five Segways at once. And speaking of segue ways, I'm off to my next morally questionable activity.
Marge: Just come back alive, okay?
Homer: Don't tell me how to do my job!
Apu and Moe: (bowing to Homer) King of thieves, we worship you!
Homer: Moe, can we talk?
Moe: Are you crazy? It's 500 degrees in here! (Checks thermometer) Oh no wait, it's only 495. What's on your mind?
Homer: Moe, I can save you if you let go of the grandfather clock.
Moe: But it's been in my family for over 40 seconds!
Homer: Thank God there's a fire. Marge's birthday is coming up.
Apu: (to Skinner) It would be a shame if the next fire you fought was in hell!
Apu: Are you suggesting we should steal?
Moe: Hey, it ain't stealing if you take it fast.
Homer: Burns stiffed us!
Moe: I can't believe he acted completely in character!
Apu: Mr Burns, just jump into the net!
Mr. Burns: What's in it for me?
Moe: Just jump!
Homer: I can't wait for my first fire. Is that one?
Lisa: That's just someone barbecuing.
Homer: Is that one?
Bart: That's a guy with red hair.
Mayor Quimby: It is with great pride that I place the safety of our city in the hands of the first four people who showed up.
Moe: You know, I think I'll volunteer, too.
Barney: Why'd you say "too"?
Moe: Well, I assume I'm not the first one.
Homer: Oh, I have 3 kids and no money. Why can't I have no kids and 3 money!?
Firefighter: You've horribly injured the whole fire department!
Homer: Who are you, a travel agent? 'Cause you're sending me on a guilt trip!
Bart: Why am I sleeping when right next door is every kid's dream - - a fat, suggestible, zombie dad?
Homer: (Dazed) Zombie montage.
Rod: But users are losers!
Homer: You're confusing drugs with druuuuuuugs!
Marge: Homer, I think you dominoed this.
Homer: That's ridiculous. If I had set up those dominoes I'd be wearing my special domino-setting-up knee pads.
(lifts pant legs to reveal he's wearing Dominex knee pads)
Blackboard Joke: I will not look up what teacher makes.
Couch Gag: After the family sits on the couch as usual the TV slides out of the way and the couch starts moving forward. As it moves forward the family is subjected to the phases of a car wash.
The plot of this episode seems similar to Simpsons Comics issue 93 when Homer and his friends become firemen.
The first videotape of the domino line is showing the front cover of Douglas Cheek's C.H.U.D. (1984).
Some of the jackets a thankful Rainier Wolfcastle hands out to the firefighters from his less successful films parody real ones, like "Frankenberry II: Frankenberry Wears Prada" which is an allusion to David Frankel's The Devil Wears Prada (2006).
While Homer was looting Costingtons, there was a piece of merchandise entitled SORNY, which was first used in "Scenes from the Class Struggle in Springfield". SORNY is obviously an allusion to the Japanese multinational corporation SONY.
One of the pacifier brands is "Bink 182." This is an allusion to the punk band Blink 182.
