As Mr. Burns lies in intensive care, Chief Wiggum - with some help from Lisa - tries to find out who shot him.
Did You Know?
This two-part episode makes two references to Dallas
(1978). The entire "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" mystery is a parody of the "Who Shot J.R.?" mystery. At the beginning of this episode, Smithers has a dream in which he wakes up to find a completely healthy Mr. Burns taking a shower, and coming to the conclusion that it was all a dream, only to wake up again and find that it was not. Dallas
(1978) pulled a similar stunt, in which an entire season, including the death of Bobby Ewing, was re-written as a dream of Pam's, with Pam awakening to find Bobby alive and well, taking a shower. See more
During the concluding episode, when Lisa is explaining to her mother how Homer's prints could have gotten on the weapon, a flashback scene shows Homer drop reaching under his car seat to get something he dropped; he touches various items, including the gun, then right AFTER the gun, he touches the lollipop. Yet at the end of the episode where Mr. Burns recounts, in another flashback, when he was accidently shot by Maggie, he gun and lollipop fall under the seat, but the lollipop falls to the LEFT of the gun.
