  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Lenny: You lured Marge in with your hair, you trapped her with marriage, you skinned and field-gutted her by having kids. Now she's mounted on your wall for good, with fake glass eyes and a rubber tongue.
      Homer: The way you put it, it sounds so perfect.

  • Notes

    • Show Title: Spider-Pig web slinging in the sky, but this time is disintegrated into ashes after getting zapped by a laser drone.
      Billboard Gag: If you haven't sent your mother flower, it's too damn late! (with Seymour and Agnes Skinner pictured)
      Chalkboard Gag: This school is not falling apart. (The chalkboard itself falls apart when the bell rings)
      Couch Gag: In this extended sequence, this gag parodies the Cartoon Network series  Robot Chicken, as Homer wakens to find himself in claymation form, shoots Flanders off his roof with his hand, takes the form of a giant donut that runs over a few people, pulls the rear cords of Barney and Moe who burp and speak like dolls, drives the family in the car, going up and down various ramps before challenging Otto in a stunt race as the bus is destroyed when it fails to clear Springfield Gorge.  Afterward, the family arrives home and sit on the couch which wraps them with seat belts.  An actual robot chicken turns the remote to their show, but Homer orders him to change it back to Robot Chicken.
