Did You Know?
Lionel Hutz remarks on how he once filed a lawsuit against the film "The Neverending Story." for false advertising. In real life, the author of the book "The Neverending Story" (upon which the film is supposedly based) filed a lawsuit against the filmmakers for inappropriate use of the title, as he felt that the film didn't adequately follow his book. Just as we would expect from a lawsuit filed by Lionel Hutz, the plaintiff lost the case. See more
Moe knows where Homer lives (and thus the Simpsons' address), as evidenced in several episodes (he has dinner with them in "Grift of the Magi," for example). So Bart's trick shouldn't have worked - Moe should've known that it wasn't anyone by the name of "Jones" prank calling him. See more

Moe's Tavern... Yeah, just a sec, I'll check.
Uh, Amanda Hugginkiss? Hey, I'm looking for Amanda Hugginkiss. Aw, why can't I find Amanda Hugginkiss?

Maybe your standards are too high!
You little SOB! If I ever find out who you are, I'm going to shove a sausage down your throat and stick starving dogs in your butt!
