There is a deleted scene on the DVD that takes place during "The Shinning" in which Bart is riding his skateboard through the halls, turns a corner and sees Sherri and Terri who sing "Your father's gonna kill you!". He runs away and turns another corner and sees Patty and Selma who tells him "It's true, ya know".
Though this is the last time a warning is used by a Simpsons Family member at the beginning of this episode regarding the disturbing content of this episode, it wouldn't be until 23 years later in Treehouse of Horror XXVIII which aired in Season 29 that this segment would be used again due to the disturbing content of the third segment for the latter Halloween episode.

Groundskeeper Willie tells Bart not to say Shining, because he could get sued. This seems unlikely, as Stephen King himself has appeared on the show, and other episodes have made reference to other film adaptations, such as Misery and The Green Mile.
