Signs at the protest of the stamp museum:
Cancel the Stamp Museum
Make War Not Stamps
Springfield Docent Like Museums
When the Simpson family goes to the stamp museum, Alexander Graham Bell holds up a medal with patent number 174,465, the actual number to his "Telegraphy" patent.
Lisa: Groundskeeper Willie?
Gravedigger Billy: No, I'm his cousin, Gravedigger Billy. I've been digging graves for thirty years and I've never buried anyone alive. If I did they'd ring this bell. (bell rings) Oh, that's just the wind. (hand comes out of ground) That's just a tree branch... with a nice watch on it! (takes the watch and beats the hand with his shovel)
Homer: We're back in the only safe bedroom in the house.
Lisa: What about Bart's room?
Homer: You know that racecar bed I made him?
Homer: The brakes are shot!
(Bart's racecar bed crashes through the wall)
Homer: Learn to drive, boy!
Marge: (to Lisa) Tonight I want you to really try to sleep in your own bed, because it… (Homer is flying a remote control helicopter around Marge's head) Homer, stop that!
Homer: There's a little plastic man in your hair, and I'm trying to rescue him. (salutes) No soldier left behind.
Lisa: There's no such thing as zombies.
Bart: I'm glad to hear you say that, because the one who doesn't believe in zombies is always the first to get feasted upon.
Homer: Oh, that is bulls**t, man!
Bart: If you're looking for Lisa, she said she was gonna spend the night in the boneyard out back.
Marge: And you're just sitting here!?
Bart: I figured the best thing I could do was monitor the news for any reports.
Marge: You're watching cartoons!
Alexander Graham Bell: And I'm Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the telephone.
Elisha Gray: You stole it from me, Elisha Gray.
Alexander Graham Bell: Read the patent number, bitch!
Homer: That Dr. Hibbert was so boring! Homer we've got to get that lump checked out, Homer we must discuss your test results, Homer we've gotta find you a donor. Blah, blah, blah.
Lisa: Land of the Wild Beasts? That's the first book I read all the way through.
Bart: You read a book all the way through? Why?
Marge: (searching the cemetery for Lisa) Lisa! Lisa! Don't worry, we're not evil spirits.
Homer: Although if we were evil spirits, we'd probably assume the shape of your parents.
Homer: Marge, we owe her the truth.
(Jackhammering and nail hammering is heard. Marge covers her ears with a pillow while Homer seems to be sleep dancing to it.)
Marge: Homer! Do something about the noise!
(Homer stuffs a pillow in Marge's mouth and continues sleep dancing.)
Lisa: I can't keep sleeping in mom and dad's room.
Bart: Yeah if dad rolls over you're dead.
Lisa: Mom showed me how to make a retaining wall out of pillows.
Milhouse: (to Lisa) I don't know how I reproduce yet, but we'll have fun figuring out how.
Homer: I can't believe it took us forty minutes to get here. Why can't they build a stamp museum closer to our house?
Lisa: Dad, you fought tooth and nail to get it away from our house.
Homer: Lisa, when you have as many concussions as I have, consistency is … something, something … I love you Bart.
Marge: Hmmm, this is a little too spooky for me. I don't even like watching the Count on Sesame Street.
Count von Count: (on TV that Maggie is watching) One coconut. Two coconuts. Three coconuts! (laughs)
Marge: Go back to your own country!
Lisa: If Scooby Doo has taught me anything, it's that there's nothing to be afraid of except crooked real estate developers.
Lou: Yeah know, I actually got into law school...I just couldn't afford it.
Eddie: Quiet; I hear something.
Lou: Yeah, that's my life slipping away.
Marge: What if we show Lisa we can sleep in her room without being frightened?
Homer: (suggestively) Ok, Marge. But don't be surprised if a Snuggle Monster shows up.
Marge: Well, I hope he's accompanied by the How Was Your Day Monster, and the Footrub Monster, and the Let Me Just...
Homer: (flatly) Don't worry, he's not showin' up.
Homer: Two! Four ! Six ! Eight! I hate stamps! They aren't great!
(No reaction from the protesting people)
Homer: Okay... How about this? Seven! Four! Three! One! Oh wait, that's my PIN number. Everyone forget that!
Marge: They can't just start building in our neighborhood without asking us! Whatever happened to please and thank you?
Homer: I think they killed each other. You know, one of those murder suicide deals.
Homer: Flanders! I can't listen to your crap before my morning coffee!
Flanders (giving him a cup of coffee): Okely-dokely, here's some French roast, now I'll go make toast!
Homer: Stupid best friend Flanders!
Dr. Nick: Bye Lisa, and remember you have a checkup next Wednesday.
Lisa: We don't go to you anymore, we got a better doctor.
Dr. Nick: Oh, congratulations.
Homer: (while strangling a younger Bart) Why you very little...!
This episode was nominated for the 2006 WGA Award (TV) for Animation.
Itchy & Scratchy: Untitled
Scratchy is walking down the street, and then he sees a theater marquee for "Cats." Scratchy says, "Finally, the show for me!" He goes in, and gives his ticket to Itchy, who works as a theater usher, and then Scratchy takes a seat. In the play, we see one of the actor cats saying, "Tim-Tom-Tabby is a curious cat. Went to see the queen in a velveteen hat," and he puts on a pink act. In the audience, Scratchy moans and says, "This is SO boring!" Then he commits suicide, by shooting himself in the head. The blood splatters over a wealthy dowager dog next to him, who says "Shhh."
Couch: In claymation-style there are a number of clay balls that roll into the living room and eventually wind up on the couch and render into the family members plus one. That plus one is Gumby (of Gumby and Pokey fame) and he waves at the family.
Scratchy: Oh, this is SO boring!
Scratchy is attending a musical very similar to the Andrew Lloyd Webber production Cats.
The Hillside Strangler
The restaurant name, The Hillside Wrangler Steakhouse, is a twisted take on The Hillside Strangler, which was actually two men who kidnapped and murdered several girls in the late 70's. They would leave their victims in the hills overlooking Los Angeles.
Kingdom Hearts Logo
The fire puffs that the monsters make in Lisa's dream are similar to the heart logo of the Kingdom Hearts game.
In the opening scene where the Simpsons start out as clay balls, Gumby makes his appearance. Gumby was actually Art Clokey's first clay animation that started in 1957.
Where the Wild Things Are
The book The Land of the Wild Beasts is a very close take on Maurice Sendak's children's book Where the Wild Things Are.
The Man Who Knew Too Much
The title of this episode a play on the title of the 1956 film The Man Who Knew Too Much starring James Stewart and Doris Day.
