Trivia

Mark Kirkland said that animating Homer drunk was a challenge for him as he had to analyze how people behave when they are intoxicated by alcohol. He said of the animation: "I shifted [Homer's] eyes open and close, they're not working in sync. And of course Homer can't keep his balance so that's why he's shifting back and forth." See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Reverend Lovejoy: Marge, as a trained marriage counselor, this is the first instance where I've ever told one partner that they were one-hundred percent right! It's all his fault, and I'm willing to put that on a certificate you can frame.
