    • At the beginning, they show Homer has drawn 'Don't Forget' on his chest backwards so he can read it in the mirror, which is a reference to the 2000 drama/thriller Memento, starring Guy Pearce and directed by Christopher Nolan. In the movie, Guy Pearce plays Leonard, a man who has lost his short term memory (the ability to create new memories) when his wife is attacked and killed. Leonard tattoos notes that he needs to remember on his body backwards so he can read it in the mirror later and keeps notes as he searches for his wife's killer. The whole movie starts at the ending and ends with the beginning.
