"Green Hornet Theme" by Al Hirt (Played in the scene where Homer trades mattresses with Reverend Lovejoy.)
The signs in front of the baseball field read: "Springfield Little League Park" and "Warning: Your child is not as good as you think he is."
The announcer for the softball games was Vincent Edward "Vin" Scully. He's the same announcer for Los Angeles Dodgers.
The two radio stations shown in this episode were: KBBL 970 AM and QUE BBL 640.
It took 78 tries for Bart to catch the game winning ball.
According to this episode Bart's favorite song is "Love Stinks" by The J. Geils Band.
According to this episode when Bart was born, he came out blue and backwards.
We learn that there is a junior baseball team in Springfield, the Springfield Isotots.
Homer: Look, we're just gonna take our mattress, do a quick sweep of the medicine chest and we're outta here. (Does a sneaking effect sound of a high-hat cymbal.)
Homer: (Stops hi-hat effect) Sorry.
Reverend Lovejoy: I have a friend, I mean, a friend of a friend...
Homer: (Very loudly) Sex problem, eh?
Marge: Reverend Lovejoy, our marriage needs this bed!
Helen Lovejoy: Our marriage needs it more!
Rev. Lovejoy: Well, I am reminded of the story of wise King Solomon.
Homer: Pfft. You would be.
Coach: Let me get this straight. You want our boys to play a fake rematch against Springfield so your son can make the catch he missed and feel better about himself?
Coach: I guess I could, if you pretend to be my fiancée when my mother comes to visit.
Marge: Okay, if you pretend to be our chauffeur at my high-school reunion.
Coach: Fine, fine, if you pretend to be a ghost in an old amusement park I'm trying to buy.
Marge: We should stop now.
(Homer and Marge are having difficulty "snuggling")
Homer: Something has changed, but I can't figure out what. (gasps) Our mattress! I traded it to the Lovejoys!
Marge: You traded our mattress? I had my secret cash in it!
Homer: Oh, that's long gone, baby, long gone. (shows her a bling necklace with "Mattress $$$" spelled out in gold and diamonds) It was made for Elvis, but he found it tacky.
Homer: The Lovejoys? If this is about me drinking that holy water, lemme tell you, I had had, like, a million Doritos. You know the ones with the flame on the bag? Oho, that bag ain't lyin'.
Lisa: Bart, come with me. I'll take you to someone who will make you feel better.
Bart: Is it my rabbit, Cottontail? The one who went to live upstate?
Lisa: He died, Bart. Dad buried him in the backyard. … But not in that order.
Announcer: Now ladies and gentlemen, if you look just over left-field wall, the real show is about to begin, the sunrise! Brought to you by God. The invisible giant you turn to when you're about to die.
Ghost Homer: You want to have ghost sex?
Ghost Marge: I keep telling you, ghost sex is nothing! It's worse than nothing!
Ghost Homer: Then why were you moaning last time?
Ghost Marge: Because I'm a GHOST! Whooooo!
Ghost Homer: Aahhh! A ghost!
Marge: You really want to make love on half a mattress behind a billboard?
Homer: It's like our honeymoon all over again! Aw, we even have the same bum looking at us.
Bum: I knew you kids would make it! (poking Homer's stomach) Man, you got fat.
Reverend Lovejoy: (to Helen) You put on the Michael Bolton CD, I'll put on my edible vestments!
LaBoot: Bart? Are you Bart Simpson? The kid who dropped that easy fly ball? You stink like a Dutchman's throwup!
Announcer: Simpson drops the ball. And he kicks it. And kicks it again. It's horrible, but you can't take your eyes away. It's like watching a monkey swallow a hand grenade.
Milhouse: I got it! I got it!
Bart: (catching the ball) I hogged it! I hogged it!
Blackboard Joke: None.
Couch Gag: There are four chairs in the living room instead of a couch. The family dances around and plays musical chairs to the tune of "Pop Goes The Weasel." The music stops and everyone sits down except Homer, who doesn't get a chair and loses the game.
The Boys of Summer
The title of this episode is a parody of the book title The Boys of Summer, and this was also a famous song by Don Henley.
While recreating Bart's baseball game, the announcer says, "It's deja vu all over again." This is one of the many odd quotes give to us by former Yankee Yogi Berra.
The batted ball hitting and killing a bird references an incident in which this Atlanta Braves' outfielder hit a ball that killed a bird in mid-air during a game in New York.
When Homer, wearing headphones, leans out and stops Bart from catching a ball, this references the infamously deflected foul ball in the 2003 National League Championship Series, in which Cubs fan Steve Bartman catches a foul ball that may have been playable by left-fielder Moises Alou.
When the boy hits the ball on a line drive right at Bart, all of Bart's clothes come off just like the character Charlie Brown from the comic strip Peanuts.
Dolph, Jimbo and Kearney: (singing) Bart stinks! Yeah yeah! Bart stinks!
An insulting parody of the J. Geils Band's song "Love Stinks."
