Homer: Welcome to real life Lisa, you can't fight City Hall… aka, Blocko Land. So don't even try!
Marge: What kind of a thing is that to tell your children?
Homer: It's what I always tell them. I told them that twice yesterday and then again as they were going to sleep.
Homer: (Looks at distorted mirror) I am a robot. Do what I say! (Chuckles, then moves to the next mirror.) I am a washing machine. Do what I say!
Homer: I don't mind being called a liar when I am lying, when I am about to lie, or just finished lying. But not when I am telling the truth!

Homer: But the TV gave me the impression that--
Bart: We said, "Meh."
Lisa: M-E-H. Meh.
Homer (singing and shuffling while chained to the lawn chair): Dancing away my hunger pangs. Moving my feet so my stomach won't hurt. I'm kind of like Jesus, but not in the sacrilegious way ...

Mike Farrell is probably best known his portrayal of Captain B.J. Hunnicut on the popular war dramedy M*A*S*H. However, Farrell wasn't the first to be Alan Alda's sidekick on the show; Farrell only appeared on the show after Wayne Rogers (Captain "Trapper" John McIntyre) left the show at the end of its 1974 season.
Blocko Land is a reference to LEGOLAND, a LEGO themed park with locations in the US, UK, Germany and Denmark.
Referee: You knocked his block off!
A line from a commercial for "Rock'em Sock'em Robots," which was a toy manufactured and sold in the 1960s (and beyond). The toy featured a pair of robots--one red and one blue--in a boxing ring. By working controls, you could have your robot punch your opponent's head. A win was scored when you 'knocked your opponent's block off' (caused his head to elevate above normal neck alignment).
The episode's title is a spoof of the children's board game "Hungry Hungry Hippos."
