Little-known fact about this episode
29 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

When this episode first aired, there was a scene in the "Springfield Legitimate Businessmen's Club", aka "Fat Tony's". In this scene, one of the "businessmen" is lamenting that he hasn't seen Troy McClure in any movies for a long time.

Another businessman says, "Ain't you heard? Troy McClure sleeps with the fishes." (A reference to The Godfather) First businessman: "I didn't know Troy McClure was dead!" Second businessman: "He ain't." That was it; maybe ten seconds of dialogue. But it was absolutely the funniest ten seconds of the whole Simpsons series, up to and including today. However, comma, that scene was scrubbed after that first showing, and unless you have a videotape of that episode, you'll never see it. SNPP.com confirmed that this scene did appear, but somebody felt it was too controversial and got the change made. Given the content of some other shows, like Family Guy, I think they should restore the "lost" scene. But that's just me.
