      The scene where Homer is banned from the Stonecutters and has to burn all his clothing has several references to the 1981 film Raiders of the Lost Ark: the bin itself looks like the Ark, horrible demon spirits fly out when the underwear goes in, and Number One's robes are similar to those of the evil archaeologist who tries to conjure the Ark's power in the film's finale.
