This episode later inspired the season four episode The Simpsons: Homer the Heretic
(1992), in which Homer stops going to church on Sundays. Based on the Fourth Commandment, "remember the Sabbath and keep it holy", that episode originated when Al Jean
commented to Mike Reiss
, "We had a lot of luck with Homer stealing cable, so maybe we could look to other commandments?" See more
