God sits in a floating Aeron chair.
Los Lobos play their version of the Simpsons end theme over the end credits.
According to the floating clocks in God's office, the time in Heaven is one hour behind the time in London. Since London would be observing British Summer Time in May, this would indicate that Heaven uses GMT.
When Homer is being interviewed by Kent Brockman, he cites Revelation 6:13, which reads, "And the stars of the sky fell to the earth as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind."
Comic Book Guy: Hey, Nostradumbass, did the Rapture come?
Homer: (scoffing) Yeah, like it's a big surprise; 'the fat guy is eating out of the dumpster'.
Dr. Hibbert: (to Homer) Nice Rapture, Einstein!
Homer: It came to me in a religious vision. Or maybe it was a drunken haze. Or possibly an ice cream headache.
(As Homer walks the streets proclaiming the imminent Rapture)
Marge: Homer, I'm glad you're finally getting some exercise, but I just wish it wasn't crazy exercise.
Homer: "Left below". Where have I heard that before?
Lisa: It's the title of the movie.

Homer: Aw, that's my girl.

Comic Book Guy: Hey Nostra-dumb-ass...!
Comic Book Guy's quip at Homer is a pun on "Nostradamus," the name by which Michel de Nostredame, a 16th century seer, is mostly known. Nostradamus is one of the world's most famous authors of prophecies, and many believe that among them one can find the date of Doomsday.
Episode Title: Thank God, It's Doomsday
The title refers to the saying, the restaurant and the 1978 film Thank God It's Friday.
