The tag-line for Marine World in "Night of The Dolphin" is 'No Longer Educational!'
Homer's astrological sign is Taurus.
In "GGGhost DDDad", when Homer's at the power plant, his paper cut bandage is gone. And when he's at home just before he dies, the pickaxe plaster is gone from his head as well.
In "Night of The Dolphin", Lenny dies, but if you slow down the part when they are running, you can see Lenny ALIVE.
Also in "G-G-Ghost D-D-Dad": The first exterior shot of the Simpson's house, on the left hand side, shows two trees with a hammock strung between them, in the second shot the trees and hammock are gone.
In "Night of the Dolphin": 1) In the scene where the crowd is rushing towards the dolphin tank, Prof. Frink is at first wearing a green sweater-vest, but in the next scene 3 seconds later, he is wearing a white lab coat. 2) The moon is shown full on at least 2 consecutive nights, which is impossible.
Also in "Scary Tales Can Come True": 1) The candle to burn Homer's paper hat seems to be missing as he sits down. 2)Bart's button area is near his navel in one shot, then moves farther from the navel in the next shot.
In "G-G-Ghost D-D-Dad": 1) When Homer shook the newspaper, it should have flown apart into individual pieces. 2) When Homer gets his paper cut, the bandage is gone by the time he sticks his hand out his car. 3) The levers that St. Peters uses appears out of nowhere. 4) If Marge, Nelson, and the Devil (at the end of the story) could touch Homer, then the Squishee he was drinking should not have fallen through his body.
When Homer goes through the Krusty Burger drive-thru, he doesn't pay for the food
Homer: (sniffing) Hmm, fish. Oh, no, that's me! (yells)
(Suzanne the witch is about to throw Lisa into the oven when Homer busts through the wall by eating it.)
Homer: Hmm, sugar walls.
Lisa: Father! I knew you'd rescue us.
Homer: Rescue you, stuff myself with candy, it's all good.
(he takes a bite out of a candy cane support beam)
Suzanne: That was a load bearing candy cane, you clumsy oaf!
Marge: Husband, without your weekly penitence, how shall we feed our children?
Homer: Don't worry. No child will ever starve in my home.
(At the edge of the Deep Dark Woods)
Homer; So long, kids!
(he throws Bart and Lisa into the woods)
Homer: Enjoy your new home. Say hi to your other brother and sister.
Bart: Other brother and sister?
(they see skeletons who look like them)
Lisa: Face it, they're not great parents.
Bart (after a rat bites him): Oh, I just got OVER the plague.
Chief Wiggum: Hmm, Bottlenose bruises. Blowhole burns. Flipper prints. This looks like the work of rowdy teens.
Ghost Homer: Maaaarge Siiiimpsssooon.
Marge: Homer! It's you! I thought I'd never see you again!
Ghost Homer: Yoou weere wroooong. Deeeaaad wrooong!
Marge: Do you have to talk like that?
Ghost Homer: No, not really.
Homer: Did you see that? I did the deed. Open up the gates.
St. Peter: Oh I'm sorry I didn't see it.
Homer: I thought you could see everything.
St. Peter: No, you're thinking of Santa.
Suzanne, the Witch: Stop your chattering and sweep! This house is filthy!
Bart: What'd you care? It's not like you have any friends.
Suzanne: I have a boyfriend!
Lisa&Bart: Pssht, yea, sure.
Suzanne: What? I do!
Lisa: Oh yea? What's his name?
Suzanne: George.. *looks at the cauldron* Cauldron.
Lisa: "George Cauldron"? Maybe he can fix me up with Ed Ladle!
(As a ghost, Homer eats the same broccoli he died from and dies, floating back to heaven.)
Homer: I tried the broccoli again.
St. Peter: You have 23 hours left.
Marge: Maybe I better check mine... today your husband will die! (Gasps) Homer, I'm scared!
Homer: Ooooh! Scary newspaper, please don't hurt me, horoscope, I'm afraid to--
(He cuts his wrist)
Homer: Aaaah! Oh, paper cut! Paper cut!
Lisa: Ohh this is horrible!
Bart: Horribly delicious!
Lisa: You know, she's only fattening you up so she can eat you.
Bart: Eh, what ya gonna do?
(He continues eating)
Lisa: Well, at least stop basting yourself!
Lisa: It really says die? That sounds unusually specific for a horoscope.
(Homer reads his horoscope.)
Homer: Taurus, today you will die.
Homer: (Gasps) And you may get a compliment from an attractive co-worker! Lenny?
Bart: It's approaching the podium!
Mel: Surely it cannot speak!
Snorky: (In high child's voice) Snorky... talk... man...
(Snorky clears his throat and reverts to deep male voice.)
Snorky: I'm sorry, let me start over. Eons ago, dolphins lived on the land.
Moe: What did he say?
Carl: He said years ago, dolphins lived on the land.
Snorky: Then your ancestors drove us into the sea, where we suffered for millions of years.
Marge: But you seemed so happy in the ocean. All that playful leaping--
Snorky: We were trying to get out! It's cold, it's wet, every morning I wake up phlegmy.
Lisa: Plus all that sewage we keep dumping.
Snorky: That was you?
Homer: It was her alright. Take the one who wronged you!
Homer: I'm not gonna let a few hoop-jumping tuna-munchers push me around!
Mayor Quimby: We're all frightened and horny, but we can't let some killer dolphins keep us from living and scoring.
Lenny: Alcohol and night swimming... it's a winning combination.
(A rattlesnake continuously bites Homer's arm.)
Homer: He'll get tired of biting in an hour or so.
Homer: Clupid bloropope!
(Homer accidentally drops Agnes Skinner into a busy street.)
Homer: Uh, I'm pretty sure she was going to be the next Hitler! Hello? Good deed done.
St. Peter: Homer, settle down. I'll give you a chance to get into heaven. You have 24 hours to go back and do one good deed.
Homer: I'm sorry I missed the number of hours and deeds.
Homer: That horoscope was bologna. Nothing happened except the pick-axe in my head, the rattlesnake bite, and the testicle thing.
Homer: I'm just trying to get in; I'm not running for Jesus!
List of the Halloween names used by the staff on this episode:
MAIMS HELL BROOKS,
BAT GROIN INJURY,
SAM "SAYONARA" SIMON,
HARRY "I WANT TO OWN EVERY MEDIA IN THE WORLD" SHEARER
This is the first time the Treehouse of Horror series airs AFTER Halloween.
The scene of Lenny swimming and being attacked by dolphins, followed by his body washing shore, homages, Jaws, a 1975 Steven Spielberg film.
The image of the baby carriage rolling down the steps is from the 1925 Sergei Eisenstein classic film, Battleship Potemkin.
"The Scary Tales Do Come True" segment parodies a lot of nursery rhymes and fairy tales like "Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater", "Rapunzel", "Three Billy Goats Gruff", "Goldilocks and The Three Bears", and "Hansel and Gretel".
The name of "Night of the Dolphin" comes from the book Day of the Dolphin, as well as the 1973 film of the same name. The element of dolphins talking also come from this, except in Day of the Dolphin the dolphins talk in squeaky voices, while the dolphin in this episode briefly talks in a squeaky voice, before clearing his throat and speaking in a more smooth, "cool" male voice.
The opening credits to "Treehouse of Horror XI" parody the second-season opening montage (1965-1966 season) of The Munsters. Included - Homer (as Herman) crashes through the front door and laughs nonchalantly; Marge (aka Lily) walks through the opening and calls out to Homer, as though to hand him his beer; Bart (that is, Eddie) walks outside, slingshot in hand; Lisa (dressed a la Marilyn) comes outside, books in hand; and Grampa (appropriately, Grandpa) laughs evily as he puts in his fang dentures.
Unlike the classic sitcom, The Simpsons-esque opening of The Munsters ends with a mob attacking the Munsters.
Lisa urges the dolphin to jump for freedom like Jesse did for Willy, the Killer Whale, in the 1993 film "Free Willy."
The scene where the citizens of Springfield go out to fight the dolphins is very similar to a scene in the 1963 film "The Birds".
Suzanne(the witch): George....Cauldron
Bart and Lisa don't believe Suzanne has a boyfriend. She says she does so they ask for a name. Suzanne says George, and then looks around and says Cauldron. Anyway, in The Brady Bunch Jan Brady lied about having a boyfriend and said George...Glass.
