Homer: Mmm, soggy breaaaa…
Flanders: Don't say it, Homer! This is not the time.
Lady: Winner of the Romanian film festivals prestigious golden bucket -- Holy crap someone's actually calling!
Homer: You wear a bathing suit in the bathtub?
Ned: Yeah! So I can't see my own shrinky-dink!
Homer: Makes sense.
Homer: Last-diddly-ast? Oh he's gone! And it's all someone's fault!
Lisa: You've totally humiliated the best friend The Simpsons ever had.
Homer: You're right, but you know who the real victim is here? Ned.
Lisa: That's what we've been trying to tell you!
Moe: Homer's the one what wised us up to the sexy goings-on.
Flanders: Homer is this true?
Homer: Ned I had no choice. It was just so funny.
Ned: Here's your room ladies, you can catch some Zee's while you earn those degrees.
Girl: You rhyme like Snoopy dog!
Ned: Well thank you!
Ned: I'd love to help you out but you do have to be over 18.
Nelson: I am, check out my ID.
Ned: Wait this is my license.
Homer: Don't worry I'll straighten things out with Coach Clay. We're good buddies. We play this game called who can punch the softest and he always lets me win.
Bart: I know what we can "Ask Jeeves." Why does he suck!
Homer: And the best part is stupid Flanders doesn't even know it's happening in his stupid house; hence my nickname, stupid Flanders.
Bart: Mom, I don't want to read, it's the weekend.
Lisa: I feel so much empathy for those villagers. They had to drink their own tears.
Bart: I was so bored, I cut the ponytail off of the guy in front of us. (Holds it to the back his head) Look at me, I'm a grad student. I'm 30 years old and made six-hundred dollars last year.
Marge: Bart! Don't make fun of grad students. They just made a terrible life choice.
Ned: You soft core sophomores took advantage of my trustful nature! And sullied the internet by putting pornography on it! Get out!
Ned: Boys! Put on your goodie-two shoes. We're moving back to Springfield.
Todd: But I've got a girlfriend.
Ned: Now you've got a pen pal.

Couch Gag: After the family takes their usual places on the couch, the couch rises into the air and is actually part of the tendril of an anglerfish that you'll find in the deep depths in the ocean. The anglerfish empties the couch of the family and swallows them whole.

The trumpet theme for Herbal Tea is a slight alteration of the theme for All Things Considered.
Left Mart is a reference to Wal-Mart and how it runs small businesses out of business.

Herbal Tea is a take-off of an NPR show called Fresh Air.
The name and style of the Humble figurines that Ned collects are an obvious reference to the real-life ceramic Hummel figurines.
Punk'd/Pimp My Ride
The Chop Shop'd show that Jason Bateman appears on is a quick and funny parody of two MTV shows Punk'd and Pimp My Ride.

When Ned lets the breeze flow through his mustache, it's a parody of the famous "breeze skirt" scene from the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch.
