One of the paintings that Bart looks under is the nude Marge painted in the season 2 episode, "Brush With Greatness".
Over the closing credits, Homer complains about all the rich people listed and threatens to give their names to the IRS.
Unlawful activities seen in international waters include a Wild West shoot-out, a bullfight; a man marries a cow, the dispensation of illegal fireworks, drinking alcohol before 2 P.M. on Sunday, nude dancing, and a monkey knife fight.
The Simpsons seats change places throughout the ceremony. Bart and Lisa sometimes disappear. The woman on the left of Bart appears at the right side of Marge (later when the awards are given away).
There was no snack machine near the end of the episode until Burns said so.
In the clinic, Mr. Burns looked at his watch on his hand right before the doctor was going to explain what was going on with the diseases. If you watch it, you can see that is the only time he has a watch on his hand.
Doctor: You are the sickest man in the United States. You have everything.
Mr. Burns: You mean I have pneumonia?
Mr. Burns: Juvenile diabetes?
Mr. Burns: Hysterical pregnancy?
Doctor: Uh . . . a little bit, yes.
Pirate Captain: Set a course for hidden pirate island, AKA Hong Kong!
Homer: Are you friendly pirates?
Pirate Captain: Uhh, not really, no.
Pirate: Looks like another homosexual party boat. They always have such nice things!
Lisa: Ah, it's good to be home.
Homer: I don't know; after living like a billionaire, this place is kind of a dump.
Bart: Nah, it's not so bad. Here, we can spit on the floor. (spits on the floor)
Burns: Smithers old chum, there's nothing like coming home with a clean bill of health. Oh, and sorry about your news.
Smithers: Thank you, sir.
Burns: Do they know how many eggs it laid in your brain?
Smithers: I prefer not to know. Frankly, one is too many.
Moe: Aw, we're going to die and I never tasted cantaloupe.
Krusty: Eh, you didn't miss much. Honeydew is the money melon.
(After the doctor explains how all of Mr Burns' diseases are perfectly balanced)
Burns: So what you're saying is, I'm indestructible!
Doctor: Oh, no, no, in fact, even slight breeze could…
Homer: We made it son. International waters … the land that law forgot!
Homer: Gentlemen, get off your knees. Your rich uncle Homer is throwing the wildest box social the high seas have ever seen! (leaves) … (pokes head back in) And you're invited. (The barflies cheer)
Burns: Cause of parent's death … got in my way.
Burns: Let's see, social security number … naught, naught, naught … naught, naught, naught, two … Damn Roosevelt!
(in Burns' mansion)
Bart: (riding a golf cart) I'm Al Unser, Jr.!
Lisa: (on a horse) I'm Princess Margaret!
Homer: (on a riding mower) I'm drunk!
Burns: Now that I'm the town's oldest man, I'm starting to realize I'm not a young man anymore.
Smithers: Sir, you deserve the finest doctors in the world. I'm taking you to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
Burns: Very well, but I'll need someone to watch my house. Who's that fellow who always screws up and creates havoc?
Smithers: Homer Simpson, sir?
Burns: Yes! The way I see it, he's due for a good performance!
Lenny: Some party Homer.
Homer: Shut up, net face!
Lenny: Hey, you're in the net too!
Homer: I said shut up, net face!
Sea Captain: I now pronounce ya, man and cow. Please accept these illegal fireworks with my blessing. Yarr!
Moe: You know I can't sell you no beer till 2pm on account of it's Sunday.
Homer: Huh? If you can't sell beer what are Lenny and Carl doing here?
Carl: Huh? Oh we're just watching the sun move across the sky.
Lenny: When it gets to here, we can drink again!
Marge: All I'm saying is don't get too comfortable. Mr. Burns will be back tomorrow.
Homer: Marge, you're right. We do have to have a party.
Marge: Party? No! No parties!
Homer: What about... par-tay's?
Marge: No par-tays, no shindigs, no keggers, no hootenannies, no mixers, no raves, no box socials!
Homer: (on phone) Hello, Thailand? How's everything on your end? Uh, huh. That's some language you got there. And you talk like that 24/7, huh?
Marge: Hmm, I know what the other eleven forks are for, but what do you do with this one?
Homer: (in a posh voice) Why Marge, I believe you're supposed to scratch your ass with it!
Homer: Oh, why won't anyone give me an award?
Lisa: You won a Grammy!
Homer: I mean an award that's worth winning.
Burns: Abra Cadaver!
Apu: (In the net) Whoo, they're poking every nook and cranny. Well, every cranny, anyway. So far, the nook is relatively... oh-nooooo it isn't!
(Being poked with the tip of a sword)
(The Pope is leaving the doctor's office.)
Doctor: It's nothing serious. Just lay off the chili and you'll be fine.
(Fidel Castro, sitting nearby, hearing the doctor, laughs)
Pope: Do not laugh Fidel--
(He waves his hand in an up-down motion.)
Pope: I've been in the car with you.
Moe: Hey, whaddaya know? It floats!
Homer: That was my plan all along. Now, relax and the currents will take us home.
Bart: What about the people on the bottom?
Homer: They're the greatest heroes of all. Hey! Something's clawing at my leg! Oh wait, it stopped.
Homer: Listen, I worked long and hard for this place, and no one's going to take it away from me. Not you! Not its rightful owner! Not anybody!
Homer: This is my year, Marge. Everyone knows I'm what makes this city great.
Marge: I don't know. There's a lot of buzz around Lenny.
(Gracie Films logo shushes)
Homer: Don't shush me, you rich bastard!
Blackboard Joke: "Class Clown" is not a paid position.
Couch Gag: The family comes in, but now Bart and Lisa are adults while Homer and Marge are kids (Maggie stays the same).
At the end, Mr. Burns calls one of the fighting monkeys from the yacht by name, 'Furious George'. This is a reference to 'Curious George', the fictional monkey from a series of children's books.
Homer: Chips Ahoy!
Presumably Homer meant to say, "Ship ahoy," but he named a brand of cookies instead.
Marge: Cigars are for rich people and legendary comedians, like Bill Crosby and David Letterson.
Marge mispronounces the names of Bill Cosby and David Letterman.
Bart riding his bike in the corridors of Mr. Burns' mansion is reminiscent of a scene in Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of Stephen King's The Shining, where Danny rides his tricycle through the Overlook Hotel's corridors.
This episode's name is a play on the Manson Family, the cult lead by Charles Manson who was responsible for the murder of Sharon Tate and others.
The Coast Guard officer gets Homer's party going by sounding out the opening guitar riffs to the Doobie Brothers song "China Grove."
