      The scene – depicting Homer in awe of a blackjack player's card-counting ability and "Raymond's" mannerisms (having to maintain a strict schedule, screaming when someone threatens to "harm" him, hitting his head with his palm) – spoofs the casino scenes in the film Rain Man. The 1988 Oscar winner depicted a self-centered, playboy-type yuppie's relationship with his autistic older brother and their cross-country trip. Homer picks up on Raymond's mannerisms when he tries to keep Raymond from leaving the casino. There is also a Tom Cruise-look-alike in the scene, probably as "Charlie" and, these scenes were cut from episodes seen in syndication.
