The guy from Moe's bar with the glasses was one of Homer's crew members that came from the horse but after the battle, he disappeared.
In "Homer's Odyssey", when the men come out of the horse, there are two Carls.
The cow that Homer milks has six nipples.
Odyssey: Look closely- The Siren Island on the map has a tune on it.
Odyssey: Although there were no glasses in those times- Professor Frink wears them.
In "Hamlet," when Hamlet is in his bed, there is a poster and a flag there. In close ups of him during the conversation between him and his Homer, the wall posters mysteriously disappears, but then returns when Homer says in a ghoul tone, "Sweater! Sweater!"
RosenCarl and GildenLenny are laying dead bleeding in the final scene, but they were poisonned, not stabbed.
During The Odyssey retelling, Frink is one of Homer's crewmembers (he even has lines; listen for them). But when everybody else is turned into pigs, he disappers, never to be mentioned again.
At the beginning, there was a letter saying "I Kill You." Obviously, it was from Sideshow Bob and to Bart.

Moe: Look at that, they're sleeping like babies… Spare no one. (Draws out a sword)
Homer: (reading next story) This one takes place in a make-believe kingdom called France. The French were fighting the English in the Hundred Years War, which was then called "Operation Speedy Resolution".

(High five & immediately fall to the ground dead)
Lisa: I call my only witness: God.
(The doors open expectedly, revealing Hans Moleman.)
Lisa: (as Joan of Arc) You can't stop me! I WAS SENT…BY GOD! (Willie grabs her and puts her into a bag) I want my mommy!
Bart: Cool. Does he get to marry his mother?
Homer: I don't know, but that would be hot.
Homer: (after eating 4 pigs) Oh, I'm still hungry.

Zeus: He grew up. Maybe you should, too.
Moe: Remember, just 'cause their heads are off it don't mean they're dead.
King of Troy: (Flanders) Now, throughout history, when people get wood, they'll think of Trojans.
