As Mr. Burns lies in intensive care, Chief Wiggum - with some help from Lisa - tries to find out who shot him.

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
