Goof: After Flanders (as a cow) gives Homer a ride through the jungle, when he parts the bushes to see several others changed into animals as well, Ned's sleeves are colored blue instead of green.
Dr. Hibbert turns the following citizens of Springfield into the following animals (not in the correct order though):
Skinner= baby kangaroo
Skinner's mother= mother kangaroo
Disco Stu= Disco shrew
Kent Brockman= rhino
Bumblebee Man= bumblebee
Mr. Burns= fox
Sea Captain= alligator
Dr. Nick= squirrel
Professor Frink= turkey
Luigi= guinea pig
Flanders= half cow
Apu's children= baby opossums
Ralph=half peacock (he thought he was a dog)
Chief Wiggum= pig
Mrs. Krabappel= leopard
Jasper= Billy goat
Rainer Wolfcastle= rabbit
Comic Book Guy= goat
Willie's fur changes from red to yellow in one of the scenes.
In The Island of Dr. Hibbert somebody proposes that all animals stop wearing trousers and Wiggum then pulls his trousers off but in the following scene, after Homer appears, when all are in a circle listening to him, Wiggum wears his trousers again.
Homer: You guys are nuts! All you can do is eat and sleep and mate and roll around in your own filth and mate and eat--where do I sign up?
Marge: The House of Pain? I guess this is where you pay the bill. (does her trademark laugh) Why am I always funny when no one's around?
(Looking through kitchen window)
Ned: Hey Homer I was wondering if I could borrow that chainsaw you ahh… stole from me.
Homer: Yeah, but you'd have to leave a credit-card.
Ned: No problem.(takes out card) Discover okay.
Ned: Ok, here's my Amex.
Comic Book Guy (Half-goat): Hear me! A cursed bredren! I understand some of you are still wearing tattered pants. Please throw them on the bonfire, and embrace your animal essence.
Chief Wiggum (Half-pig): Okay, but I'm keeping my tattered vest. I still have my dignity. Hey, slops! (eats slops) Ooohh, a toenail! Heh, Heh! (eats the toenail)
William "Billy the Kid" Bonney: The Sundance Kid!
Comic Book Guy: What happened to Butch Cassidy?
Sundance Kid: "What happened to Butch Cassidy?" We're not joined at the hip, ya know!
Lisa: How do you like being a walrus dad?
Homer: It's great, I haven't been this skinny since high school.
Lisa: I dream of a world without guns. Don't we all, William?
Bart: Lisa has a dead boyfriend!
Lisa: He's not my dead boyfriend! He's a dead boy that happens to be my friend.
Bonney: Play us some pian-ee.
(Homer starts Für Elise, and then a bullet ricochets…)
Bonney: That's piano! I said pian-ee!
(Homer plays western-style music.)
Bonney: You! Play the cell-ee!
(Marge plays a honky-tonk tune.)
Bonney: You! Sing a song about cattle-russlin'. And you! Sing one about, uh, robbing banks.
(song plays intro)
Bart (sung): Caps in the field so you sneak up slow, grab 'em by the tail and go man, go.
Lisa: Break into the bank and snatch that dough...
Bart and Lisa: Please don't hurt our family.
(Zombies shoot at the floor directly under Bart and Lisa)
Homer: Marge, let me do a solo. This could be my big break!
Marge: I very much doubt that, Homer. These are horrible ghouls from the past.
Homer: Hey, so are the Grammy judges.
Lou: (handing in his gun) This always made me feel like a man, you know? Now all I got is my enormous genitals.
Homer: Oh my God! She's become a monster! Which I have to admit, I sorta suspected during the sex.
Marge: No belly button? You're a clone! Then the real Homer…
Homer Clone: First over cliff.
Maude's Ghost: Are you ready for tales that will shatter your spine and boil your blood?!
Lisa: Well, duh.
Homer: (after creating 4 clones) I think this could be a MAGIC hammock!
Sideshow Mel: Another tragedy prevented by gun violence!
Moe: All right, who's paying the tab?
Homer Clones: LENNY!
Lenny: Anything for Homers.
Quimby: I proudly declare our town utterly defenseless.
(Ralph Wiggum slides down a slide made from guns, giggling as the guns go off)
Ralph: The bumps tickle my bottom!
Quimby: Springfield's weapons of death have been converted into weapons of climbing and sliding.
Lisa (counting the number of guns): 28, 29…there's one missing.
Homer: Not Mr. Blasty! (stroking gun) It's okay, boy. You'll be shooting angels in heaven.
Wiggum: Well, well. Not so tough without your gun, are you, Snake? (Snake slaps Wiggum on the side of the face) Oh! Ow! I guess you are. That's what I like about this job. You learn stuff.
Lisa: That's it! I know exactly what we should do.
General #1: Thank God! And you said we shouldn't let little girls in the War Room.
General #2: Look, I was wrong, okay?
Marge: They look like you, they were rude to Patty and Selma, and the horde has been described as "very gassy".
Homer: Yeah, it's a good group.
Lisa: Dad, is there something you'd like to tell us about this horde?
Homer: You'd think so, but no.
Kent Brockman: Like comedy clubs in the late '80s, these ravenous clones are everywhere. They destroyed every building in town, except Moe's Tavern, which is reporting record business.
Homer clones: (All chanting) Beer, beer, beer, beer, beer, beer.
(Many beer cans heard opening, then being gulped. The Homer clones then run around to the back of the building, zippers are heard being pulled down.)
Homer clones: (Relieved groans) Ahhhhhhhh.
1987-1989 Homer: Let's all go out for some frosty chocolate milk shakes.
Homer: Now, before I abandon you in this cornfield, does anyone remember the way home?
Homer clone: (Raises hand) I do.
(Homer pulls out a rifle and shoots the clone.)
Homer: Anybody else?
(Another clone raises his hand. Homer shoots him.)
Homer: Anybody else? Come on.
(Another clone raises his hand and gets shot.)
Homer: Okay, everybody out.
Homer: (Laughs) It would take three clones to beat the original Homer.
Homer clones: (Excited) Hmmm...
Homer: (Gasps) I mean four.
Homer clones: (Disappointed groan)
Homer & Homer clone: Why you little!!!
Homer: (While riding the half-Ned/half-cow) In the jungle, the creepy jungle, Homer rides a freak.
The cast/crew didn't use spooky names in place of their real names for this episode like past Halloween episodes (ex. Matt Groening changes it to 'Bat Groaning').
Maude Flanders returns from beyond the grave in this episode. The last time she appeared was in the episode "Alone Again, Natura-Diddly," but the last time Maggie Roswell provided Maude's voice was in "Guess Who's Coming to Criticize Dinner."
"Send in the Clones" featured a cameo by Peter Griffin from Family Guy and a minor speaking role by Homer drawn (and voiced) in the style in which he first appeared on The Tracey Ullman Show. Fat Homer also appears from the episode "King-Size Homer."
Looks like the only guns left are in my cold, dead hands.
This is a poke at actor Charlton Heston, once the president of the National Rifle Association, and his speech given in May of 2000 when he said that Al Gore would have to rip his gun from "his cold dead hands."
House of Pain
Not just a hut in a forest, but also a band from the '90s. House of Pain are best known for their hit single 'Jump Around', which has become a standard fixture in Alternative rock retro nights.
Fantasy Island: The theme to the original 1978 version of this show can briefly be heard after Homer decides he wants in on the animal transformation.
The idea of undead cowboys taking over the town comes from the song "Cowboys From Hell" by Pantera.
The scene with the helicopters lifting the giant donuts over the horde of Homers while "The Ride of the Valkyries" by Wagner plays in the background is a take on the 1979 film "Apocalypse Now," where a Lt. Colonel in command of an Air Cavalry unit liked to play the piece during helicopter raids to scare the enemy.
"The Island of Dr. Hibbert" is based on the H.G. Wells novel "The Island of Dr. Moreau" where a mad doctor creates manlike beasts and rules over them. This story has been made into a movie on at least three occassions.
Homer: Manimals, invertibroads...
When Homer confronts the mutated population of Dr. Hibbert's island, he makes a reference to the 80's NBC drama Manimal, about a scientist who can transform himself into the animal of his liking.
One of the Homer clones is made to look like Peter Griffin from the FOX TV show Family Guy. The writers were calling Peter Griffin a rip-off of Homer.
