Trivia

Principal Skinner notes that the town's trains are running on "metric time" while looking at an analog clock numbered 1-10. Metric time does exist, however it is simply a way of using the second with metric prefixes, and cannot be used to determine the time of day. See more »

Goofs

The joke on Comic Book Guy's t-shirt, a reference to DOS, has forward slashes (/) instead of backslashes (\\). DOS used backslashes. See more »

Quotes

Lisa: My family never talks about library standards. And every time I try to steer the conversation that way, they make me feel like a nerd.
Comic Book Guy: We are hardly nerds. Would a nerd wear such an irreverent sweatshirt?
[open his jacket to show off his shirt]
Lisa: [reading the shirt] "C:/DOS C:/DOS/RUN RUN/DOS/RUN".
[laughs]
Lisa: Oh, only one person in a million would find that funny.
Professor Frink: Yes, we call that the "Dennis Miller Ratio."
