  • Notes

    • In the premiere of this episode, there are two lines by Bart and Mr. Burns, which respectively are "Bad influence, my ass!" and "I had better kiss my sorry butt goodbye." The censors apparently got complaints from the "Mothers Against" groups, so in all of the repeats on FOX, the words were swapped. That is, from then on, Mr. Burns said "I had better kiss my sorry ass goodbye," and Bart's line was now, "Bad influence, my butt!" In syndication, however, the lines have returned to normal. The DVD has both scenes intact, but with the words reversed.
