Trivia

While Homer is walking in the Third Dimension, he walks by a string of hexadecimal numbers in the background: 46 72 69 6e 6b 20 72 75 6c 65 73 21. In ASCII, this translates to "Frink rules!" See more »

Quotes

[Principal Skinner is having a meeting with parents, but burning Willie rushes into the room]
Groundskeeper Willie: Help! Please, help me!
Principal Skinner: Willie, don't worry! Mr. Van Houten has the floor.
Mr. Van Houten: I, for one, would like to see the cafeteria menus in advance so parents can adjust their dinner menus accordingly. I don't like the idea of Milhouse having two spaghetti meals in one day.
[before anyone could answer, the entire class looks directly at Willie, who explodes into flame and screams]

Unprocessed fishsticks!
27 January 2006 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Not wishing to suffer a night of boring stories and horrid family activities with Patty and Selma, Homer scours the house for a hiding place and has to settle for a spot behind the bookcase after Bart, Lisa and the pets take the better ones.

But behind the bookcase is the doorway to another dimension, a place where shapes are extended beyond the 2 dimensions of the Simpsons universe, along the hypothetical 'Z-Axis'. This leads to Homer noticing things he has never been able to see before, such as his big belly and butt.

The place Homer is taken to is a massive grid-like universe, not unlike the movie Tron, where the stars shine brightly above and odd shapes and idiosyncrasies are in abundance. Among the many curious things Homer encounters is the library from Myst, which I thought was a cool reference. Also, the music as Homer wanders around in this mysterious place is very nice, it's a shame it never made it to any of the Simpsons CDs.

In the end, though Homer's own ignorance of quantum physics (he never read the book by that wheelchair guy) and despite Bart's rescue attempts, the universe collapses on itself and Homer falls into oblivion, or some place much, much worse...

...the real world. Well, at least he still has his erotic cakes.
