Trivia

While the Simpsons are at the movie theater, a THX trailer is shown and the Deep Note literally blows the audience out of their seats, shattering eyeglasses, teeth, and someones head even explodes. The THX executives liked that parody so much that the scene was made into an actual THX theatrical trailer. See more »
