      The scenes around Springfield, at the time of Sideshow Bob's plan to detonate a nuclear bomb fails (due to it being a dud), references The Day After, the 1983 made-for-TV film which depicted a surprise nuclear attack on Omaha, Nebraska. A montage of scenes of normal, everyday life (including rush-hour traffic, a childbirth and a wedding) were shown at the moment the bomb detonated, wiping out everything.
