  • Notes

    • Show Title:  The family dressed in period clothing flying an retro-model flying car.
      Billboard Gag:  Monday Night Football at Moe's:  The screen is now clean. (with Moe pictured at his tavern and a TV in the background)
      Chalkboard Gag:  Rocktober is not followed by Blowvember.
      Couch Gag:  In a Thanksgiving-themed sequence, the Simpsons are seen as Pilgrims, fleeing the Old World for the New World.  They get aboard the Mayflower, travel the ocean, enduring storms and a sea creature resembling Moe.  When they arrive, Homer and Marge doff their Puritan clothing for a little tryst before God chastises them.  When they reach Plymouth Couch (rock version of their couch) after a brief chill, the family is greeted by Apu, dressed as an American Indian who provides them with a Thanksgiving feast, but for $19.95 per person.
