In Germany, this episode was dedicated to the memory of Elisabeth Volkmann, the German voice of Marge Simpson, who passed away in July 2006.
This is the seventh time Marge has been in jail, the first time being in "Homer Alone", the second time in "Marge in Chains", the third time in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge", the fourth time in "Brawl in the Family", the fifth time in "The Frying Game" and the sixth time in "Bart Mangled Banner".
(After hearing Bart isn't allowed on the plane)
Bart: Well, Homer, looks like I can't go to Discipline Camp. Which is too bad cause I think this was the thing that would finally straightened me out.
Homer: Oh, yeah? You're going to that camp cause I'm gonna drive you there.
Bart: Oh, yeah, that'll be way more fun than Vegas.
(Cut from the airport, fly overhead and zoom in on the gang at Moe's)
Carl: Ah, dang. Homer ain't coming.
Nelson: (off-screen) Haw-haw!
Carl: And Nelson saw something funny.
(At the yard sale)
Lisa: We've only brought in five dollars. And that was from Mr. Flanders buying back his own stuff.
Homer: I'm one Snickers pie away from losing my foot to diabetes. Mmmmm, Snickers pie.
Bart: Dad, if you take me to Las Vegas, I'll teach you how to cheat at blackjack.
Homer: Who needs to cheat when you've got a system?
Bart: What's the system?
Homer: (whispering) I don't tell your mother how much I've lost.
Homer: This camps got it all! Climbing some kind of rope, wearing a backpack and high fiving the black kid.
(after finding the key to the steam tunnels)
Bart: Thank you Satan!
Bart: Oh my god! My dad had a long talk with me about this, but you can't believe it till you see it.
Milhouse: The cafeteria loading dock.
Bart: Look, we're having pizza tomorrow.
Milhouse: I'm gonna eat a lighter breakfast.
Skinner: Ah 1995, fine year for Camrys. No one would ever guess you've spent 3 months in a lake.
Skinner: That's odd, we only turn the heat on for parent's night.
Skinner: What the F minus?!
Homer: Stupid Bart, makes me drive to Oregon. Home of the unspoiled forest birthplace of Matt Groening.
Homer: (to Bart) I bet they're from Massachusetts. You know it's legal there for a guy to marry his son!?
After being drenched in steam…
Ralph: I've got two kinds of wet in my pants.
Bart: I gotta warn ya, we could get in trouble.
Milhouse: I don't mind. Trouble's a form of attention.
Waitress: So, here for a snack before they roll you back into the ocean?
Homer: Yeah… I'll have the smiley face breakfast special. Ah but could you add a bacon nose? Plus bacon hair? Bacon moustache? Five o'clock shadow made of bacon bits? And a bacon body?
Waitress: How 'bout if I just shove the pig down your throat
Waitress: I'm kidding.
Homer: Fine! But the bacon man lives in a bacon house!!!
Waitress: No he doesn't!
(After hearing separate messages that both her parents are in jail.)
Lisa: Well Maggie, I always knew that it would someday boil down to just the two of us. (sighs) I'll look for work in the morning.
Bart: Can I cut a deal? I'll give you Milhouse.
Principal Skinner: I don't want Milhouse.
Milhouse: You sound like my parents' custody hearing.
Carl: Why are you being so generous? You are usually so stingy and rat-like.
Moe: Remember that time I tried to hang myself and the rope broke? Well, I sued the rope company and I got a huge settlement AND a new rope.
Carl: Hey nice rope!
Lenny: You could hang a cow with that thing!
Homer: Stupid horse! This is a deer crossing.
Blackboard Joke: Teacher was not dumped -- it was mutual.
Couch Gag: A la the opening to western series Bonanza a map of Springfield is shown and the center of the map begins to burn. As the burning paper separates we see the family members riding up on their horses. The couch is nowhere to be found.
The program Principal Skinner suggests for Bart, Upward Bound, is a reference to Outward Bound--a program directed mainly toward young people to develop character and self-discovery in a wilderness setting.
When Marge is selling Homer's old meds, Birchibald Barlow (from "Sideshow Bob Roberts") can be seen buying a huge pile of painkillers. Birchibald is modeled after Rush Limbaugh and his appearance here would reference the talk show host's much-publicized addiction to pain-killers.
The episode title is a parody of the Talking Heads song "Road to Nowhere," which contains the line, "we're on a road to nowhere."
In Homer's head, the 'prison' in which Zany Homer is trapped by Serious Homer resembles the holding cell used in the 1978 film Superman to hold General Zod, Non, and Ursa during their trial.
