Homer refers to the nerds as his old roommates, and the dorm room as his old dorm, but in "Homer Goes to College," he only went to the nerds for tutoring. He did not live with them in the dorm.
This episode's Dean Peterson is not the same Dean Peterson Homer ran over during a prank in "Homer Goes to College" (1F02)
~Homer was wearing a hat when the bucket fell on his head. The bucket should have come off easily because the bucket was glued to his hat, not his head.
~During his song, Bart threw away Milhouse's glasses. But when Milhouse was in the hospital, he had his glasses. His mom didn't know he was at the hospital, so how did he get them back?
When Reverend Lovejoy plays the electric guitar in church, you can clearly see that the guitar isn't plugged into an amplifier, yet it sounds as if it is.
When Homer crashed into a ditch, he said "That had nothing to do with the bucket", but the closed-captioning read, "Stupid Ford!" In "Gump Roast", the captioning matched what Homer said.
Fat Tony: I wagered a large sum on the performance of that scholar athlete. (produces an ice pick and points it menacingly at Homer)
Homer: No, wait! I got a kid who's a miracle worker! He'll heal him up real good!
Fat Tony: Well he'd better, or else.
Homer: Or else what? … Oh, right, the ice pick.
Marge: Wow, he should have his foot insured by Lloyd's of London.
Homer: (drunk) Oh, you just know what everyone should do, don't you, Marge?
Bart: Milhouse, I can't help you. I am no healer.
Milhouse: Could you tell my Mom I'm here?
Lisa: Bart, I hope you don't believe your own hype.
Bart: Number of miracles performed by Bart: Two. Number of miracles performed by Lisa: Zero.
Lisa: How can you believe all this mumbo-jumbo? The bucket came off Dad's head because the bright lights heated it, causing the metal to expand.
Bart: Heat makes metal expand. Now who's talking mumbo-jumbo?
Bart: Then I said, "I have the power," and the bucket came off.
Ralph: Can you heal me? I can't breathe good and it makes me sleepy.
Bart: I'll give it a whirl. Devil … be gone (slaps Ralph in the head)
Ralph: Ow! (two coins fall out of his nose) My milk money! (milk spills from his nose) And my milk.
Bart: Excuse me, Brother Faith? I've gotta know -- how did you really get the bucket off my Dad's head?
Brother Faith: Well, I didn't, son. You did. God gave you the power.
Bart: Really? Huh. I would think that He would want to limit my power.
Homer: Cure me! Cure me!
Brother Faith: Brother, I sense that you are feeling trapped and desperate.
Homer: Yeah! And I got a bucket on my head.
Homer: I'm beginning to think this alumni party was just a ruse to get our money.
Benjamin: That Dean is going to get an indignant e-mail.
Doug: You should do it with bold, red letters.
Gary: My computer has 512 shades of red.
Homer: Have you nerds forgotten everything I taught you? This calls for a prank.
Marge: He hit the star player!
Lisa: Aw, Dad has the worst luck when he's drinking.
Lisa: Do you have any food that wasn't brutally slaughtered?
Homer: I think the veal might have died of loneliness.
Football Announcer: Well, my supply of homespun sayings is lower than a doodlebug in Aunt Tillie's root cellar.
(to the tune of "Time of My Life")
Singers: I had the halftime of my life, and I owe it all to S.U.
Brother Faith: Now let's hear it, for the Holy Spirit, no need to fear it, just revere it.
He works in heaven, that's a twenty four/seven.
That's right - a-check the bible, a-John 2:11.
Homer: Poor guy... he lost his leg.
Dr. Hibbert: Oh, no, no. The fans will whoop it up with that tonight -- you know, drink beer out of it and so on -- but, uh, it'll turn up in the morning, and I'll sew it back on.
Marge: Will that really work?
Dr. Hibbert: Well, I assume so... as long as I have Bart's healing powers...
Bart: Why won't anybody listen to me? I don't have any special powers. I am not a healer!
Dr. Hibbert: Fine. More money for me.
Milhouse: Thank you Bart for fixing my vision, now I see with total precision!
Bart:Song's over Milhouse, but you're welcome.
Marge: I tried greasing the bucket with bacon fat but your father kept eating it!
Homer: Can't you try a non delicious fat? (he starts crying) *Ugh* there's no such thing!
Reverend Lovejoy: Perhaps its time to fight razzle with dazzle.
(He gets his guitar and plays it.)
Reverend Lovejoy: Mi--Michael ro--ro--rode--
(The guitar squeaks a high sound.)
Todd: Is he killing that guitar daddy?
Ned: Yes, son.
Bart: (Holding up skateboard) Satan, eat my shorts!
Bart: (Singing) I was a sinner, a real bad kid.
What thou shalt not, I shalt did.
Neighbor's cat I tried to neuter,
Took a whiz on the school's computer.
Sherri & Terri: He took a whiz, oh, yes he did.
Bart: But now I changed, you can't deny.
Come on up, and testify.
Sherri & Terri: Testify, testify, come on up and testify!
Grampa: My hip's misbehavin'.
(Bart knocks his cane away.)
Sherri & Terri: Testify!
Patty: Got a nicotine cravin'.
(Bart slaps away the cigarettes.)
Sherri & Terri: Testify!
Professor Frink: Got a cramp in my glavin.
(Bart kicks Frink's rump.)
Professor Frink: Oy!
All: Testify! Testify!
(Bart dramatically holds up two lit Roman candles, one in each hand. The flames shoot off to his sides.)
Ned: Excuse me, neighbor. I couldn't help but notice, you picked pretty much all of my flowers!
Homer: Can't make a float without flowers.
Ned: Oh, sure. But did you have to salt the earth so nothing would ever grow again?
Homer: Heh-heh, heh-heh ... yeah.
Lenny: You're only calling us a cow college cause we were founded by a cow.
Marge: Hmm ... there's a homecoming parade, a cocktail party ...
Homer: And the big game between Springfield U and Springfield A&M. I hate Springfield U soooo much!
Lisa: You went to Springfield U. You hate A&M.
Homer: Soooo much!
Kent: Big game fever is taking a fevered pitch as the fevered rivalry between Springfield U and Springfield A&M spreads like wild fever. This, this is writing?
Nephew: I'm sorry, Uncle Kent. I lost my thesaurus.
Kent: Ugh, thesaurus, you'll lose more than that…..In preparation for the big game, Springfield Stadium has caught additional seating capacity fever. Arrgh!
Krusty: Hey! You gentiles are alright!
Blackboard Joke: I will stop "phoning it in".
Couch Gag: Sigmund Freud (which actually looks like an elderly version of Milhouse) is next to the couch. Homer sits on the couch and cries that he's going crazy while the family watches.
"(I've Had) The Time of My Life" People on Float: I've, had, the halftime of my life, and I owe it all to SU.
During halftime of the football game, some people on the floats sing these lyrics, which are a parody of the song "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes.
Football Announcer: Annie, get your radar gun 'cause that tamale was one tall drink of water!
The beginning of the line was a play on Annie, Get Your Gun, the musical about Annie Oakley.
Homer: I remember my love affair with Ali McGraw. She used to call me "Preppy." And then she died.
Apparently Homer has gotten his college days confused with the movie Love Story, which starred Ali McGraw and Ryan O'Neal. It was based on a novel by Erich Segal.
The announcer for the football game sounds like college football announcer Keith Jackson who is known for his "homespun" sayings.
The name of the episode is a play on the title of the 1997 film Face/Off, starring Nicholas Cage and John Travolta.
