The church got remodeled on "She of Little Faith", but here is the same as before.
Lisa is sitting at church even though she's Buddhist.
When Homer hides in the closet, Mrs. Bellamy's skeleton costume is seen as a real skeleton. It doesn't look like a costume until Mrs. Bellamy tells Homer.
Lovejoy: Nice dress.
Catholic Minister: Oh, go home and have sex with your wife!
Lovejoy: That's it, bring it on!
Judge Snyder: Have you reached a verdict.
Juror: Verdict? Is that what we were supposed to do?
Judge Snyder: In all my years on the bench!
Juror: Cause that's what we did!
Judge Snyder: (laughs) You juries!
Bart: I'm Bart and this is Lisa.
Cletus: Dem city names, from now on you're Dengus Squatburg Jr. and Pamela E. Lee.
Lisa: But I like my old name.
Brandine: You hush up now, Dengus!
Homer: I'd kill for a beer…
Moe: Right away, sir, I don't want no trouble.
Homer: Hmmm… I'd stab somebody for a pickle. Give me some peanuts.
Moe: Uh uh uh, you didn't say you'd kill me.
Homer: (sighs) I'll kill you if you don't give me some peanuts.
Mrs. Bellamy: Can I call you the next time I need a muscular he-man?
Homer: Hey, I'm not running an employment service, you old ba… ohhh, you mean me? I'd be delighted.
Homer: "Meals on Wheels" eat it up or I go to jail!
Old Man: Didn't these meals used to have a cobbler?
Homer: Uuh, they discontinued the cobbler.
Old Man: You smell like cobbler.
Homer: Now let's not get into who smells like what!
Homer: I crushed that horrible bug, what shall I do!?
Evil Homer: Bury it, quickly, before anyone finds out.
Good Homer: Oooh, I'm gonna tell!
Evil Homer: The hell you will! (kills good Homer) Now we're in this together!
Marge: I finally have a peaceful place to sit and hear my own thoughts. (thinking) How much money did he piss away on this?
Lenny: Yeah, you must be some kind of marriage super-genius, how about a few tips?
Homer: Certainly, Lenford. Make every day a celebration of your love. Surprise her with a pasta-salad. Put a mini beret on your wang.
Lenny: Oh, this stuff is gold.
Carl: Happy marriage, here I come.
Federal agent: Mr. Simpson, allowing an endangered species to die is a federal offense under the "Reversal of Freedoms Act of 1994".
Chief Wiggum: Well, I'd like to thank you both for cooperating with--Did ya do it!?
Marge: Chief Wiggum, Homer and I are innocent.
Chief Wiggum: I'm sorry I can't believe I tried to trick you with such an underhanded ques--Did ya do it!?
Homer: Now if you'll excuse us, we'll be on our--Does that ever work!?
Chief Wiggum: Nah, nah it never does.
(Homer confesses and says Marge has nothing to do with it so she is set free.)
Marge: My love, you saved my life!
Homer: Now you, do it for me!
Mrs. Bellamy: That man took my diamond necklace.
(The burglar laughs)
Homer: Don't worry. You'll be juuussttt fine.
(He sees a pair of scissors stuck in Mrs. Bellamy's back)
Homer: O... kay.
Michael Clarke Duncan: Want some corn bread, Mr. Jangles? Well, you can't. 'Cause I'll kill ya!
(Homer talking to Carmen Electra's breasts.)
Carmen Electra: My face is up here Homer.
Homer: I've made my choice!
Homer: You know, if you let us go, there's a diamond necklace in it for you.
Wiggum: I hope you're not suggesting that I would take that necklace as a bribe. Think again, dirtbag, 'cause I can swipe it later from the evidence locker.
Kent Brockman: And the elephant who couldn't stop laughing was put to death.
This is the second time the Simpsons were tricked on a game show. In "30 Minutes Over Tokyo," the family thought they were on a volcano, but they really weren't.
This episode aired at 7:30 PM, Eastern; so that FOX could make room for series finale of the The X-Files.
Blackboard Joke: None.
Couch Gag: The family room appears on screen in black and white with an old-timey feel. Homer enters acting like Charlie Chaplin of silent film era fame and the rest of the family enters in period piece clothing and take their places on the couch.
The series finale of the "The X-Files" which aired following this episode, was based upon the same type of plot as Mulder was put up for murder and sentenced to death...
The "man with braces" seems to be a parody of "the one-armed man" of the 1960s ABC TV series, 1993 film and year 2000 CBS series The Fugitive. In the two series and the film, Dr. Richard Kimble is framed for the murder of his wife, but he constantly claims "it was the one-armed man" much the same way Marge and Homer continuously claim that "it was the man with the braces." Also, in "The Fugitive" and in this episode, we know the character the accused claim to be the "real" murder IS the (apparent) murderer.
The title is a takeoff of the 1992 film "The Crying Game".
Lots of references to the 1999 film The Green Mile: first, the quote: "Dead man walkin' on the green mile!"; then, the black man who asks Homer to "Give me your hands"; and finally, the black man's mouse, Mr. Jingles.
Pamela E. Lee, Lisa's new name, is a play on words with actress Pamela Anderson Lee and Confederate general Robert E. Lee. Bart's new name was "Dingus Squatford Jr," origin unknown.
Host: You're on Frame-Up!
Frame-Up is similar as the NBC TV reality series "Spy TV", which tricks people by doing unrealistic things they might not like and catches them on camera. Unlike the people caught on "Spy TV", Homer is not amused.
