During the scene where Maggie misses her pacifier, she picks up many items. They include: her thumb, a crayon, a block, and a toy figure which resembles Bart. See more
In response to Marge staying in character as Blanche DuBois in order to rehearse, Bart also "goes into character" by adopting a Cockney (East London) accent and vocabulary. But "gulliver" which Bart uses for "head" is not authentic Cockney (the correct word is "loaf") but Nadsat, the fictional argot invented by Anthony Burgess for his novel "A Clockwork Orange". This probably shows Bart's ignorance of the culture he's trying to ape. See more
[to the cast
Perhaps we are all a little mad, we who don the cap a bells and tread beneath the proscenium arch. But tonight, you will all be transformed from dead-eyed suburbanites into white-hot grease fires of pure entertainment!
Except you. You're not working out, I'll be playing your part.
