The sign outside Stu's Disco says "You must be at least this swarthy to enter," and has a picture of Apu's brother Sanjay next to it.
(As Homer is driving the car he "stole" from Moe...)
Homer: (singing to the tune of "Sailing, Sailing")
Stealing a car for Moe!
La-da-da-da, da-da, da-da,
Insurance fraud today!
Moe: (upon hearing his player's club card is maxed out) Well, that's it. It's over. Renee ain't gonna want to hang around with no Joe pinch-penny.
Homer: Come on, Moe. Think of all the things you have to offer her besides money.
Moe: I need cash, and fast!
Moe: It's been four years since my last date with a whatchoo-call-it, uh, woman.
Moe: Oh, Homer! I've been the world's biggest rat. Can you ever forgive me?
Homer: Aww, I could never stay mad at you, Moe. After all, you get me drunk!
Moe: Renee, there's something I gotta tell ya.
Renee: Oh no. You're gay, aren't you? Oh boy, Renee, you sure can pick 'em!
Moe: Nah, it ain't that.
Renee: What, so you're married?
Moe: No, no! I--Hey, why did you say gay first?
Homer: Hmm, I don't know… I can just imagine what Marge would say!
Marge: (In Homer's imagination) Homer, I insist you steal that car!
Homer: I'll do it!
Renee: Really? You think I'm gorgeous?
Moe: Yeah, well, the part that's showin'. Guess you could have a lotta weird scars or a fake ass or somethin'.
Renee: You don't talk to a lot of women, do you?
Moe: No girl wants to end up with a Joe Pukepail like me.
Homer: Now, now, I won't hear of it, Moe! You're a fabulous catch!
Moe: Oh yeah? Well how come I ain't fending off movie starlets with a pointy stick?
Homer: Oh, it's probably due to your ugliness, but that doesn't mean we can't find you a woman. C'mon! We're going to the darkest bar in town!
(Homer makes a toast.)
Homer: To Marge, and all the blissful years I spent hiding from her in this bar.
Homer: Hey, I thought your mother told you to take a bath!
Bart: Yeah, mom says a lot of things.
Homer: Oh, I understand, kids. I'm not a bath man myself, more of a cologne man.
Chief Wiggum: You know, fingerprints are just like snowflakes. They're both very pretty.
(Moe tries to explain how to steal his car to Homer.)
Moe: Now the car is gonna have to represent you and this little toy man will represent the car--forget it.
Moe: Hey, hey, Sabu! I need another magnum of your best champagne here, ah, and bring us the finest food you've got, stuffed with the second finest.
Maitre d': Excellent, sir. Lobster, stuffed with tacos.
Blackboard Joke: Silly string is not a nasal spray.
Couch Gag: The family runs to the couch and sits. From each side of the couch, hydraulic presses (like those used to crush cars) squeeze the family closely together, then a press comes down from above and compresses them into a "block" of Simpsons.
The shot of the train speeding past the drive-in theater is a reference to the famous 1956 photograph Hot Shot Eastbound by O. Winston Link, depicting a freight train with a powerful steam locomotive passing by a drive-in theater full of cars with the movie depicting an airplane (just as the movie Homer is watching, Hail to the Chimp, is doing the same.)
Hail to the Chief
The name of the movie Homer stops to see, Hail to the Chimp, is a parody of the 1985 film, Hail to the Chief.
At Marine World, there's a sign for a whale that says "Willy" (Formerly Shamu). This is an allusion the whale "Willy" from the 1993 film Free Willy.
The title of this episode is a play on the title of the classic 1944 film, Double Indemnity.
