    • (Milhouse's parents are lost at sea.)
      Homer: Here Milhouse, why don't you cheer up with a glass of Ocean Spray. (catches himself) Oh, boy. Forget that. How about some Cap'n Crunch? (catches himself) Seven Seas Italian Dressing? Oh, no, no, no. Uhh... Chicken of the Sea tuna? Ahh. Billy Ocean CD? The History of Atlantic Records?
      Marge: Stop naming things!
      Homer: I want to, but I can't.

  • Allusions

    • Saving Private Ryan
      The scene where the two cruise line officials approach the house in a car to inform Milhouse about his parents is a reference to a scene from the film Saving Private Ryan. The washed out colors, music, farmland setting and reflection of the car approaching in the window are all similar. However, in the film the men come to the house to inform a mother of the loss of her sons.

    • Indiana Jones
      The outward appearance and clothing of Milhouse's uncle is modeled after that of fictional film hero Indiana Jones. Also, a parody of the Indiana Jones theme can be heard during the episode.

    • Little Orphan Annie
      The title of this episode is a parody of the title of the comic strip Little Orphan Annie and a subsequent Broadway musical and film of the same name.
