    • First Blood: The scene, where Bart meets with the school counselor to determine his career choice, references the 1982 American film First Blood. The school counselor tells Bart that he believed Bart would become a drifter in his adult age. Bart then daydreams about himself as a drifter holding a green Army duffel bag who complains how the Sheriff drove him out of town, echoing the sequence in First Blood where John Rambo is ushered out of town by the sheriff for being a drifter.
