Goofs

According to the phone bill Homer receives with Bart's long distance charges the calls were made between 8:45 and 10:15 am. Bart would have had to made the calls in the afternoon, as after he hangs up on the six hour call to Australia it is nighttime in Springfield. See more »

Quotes

Bart: No fair! You only won because you had the inside track. If the water had been going the other way...
Lisa: It never goes the other way, Bart. In the Northern Hemisphere, water always drains counter-clockwise. It's called the Coriolis Effect.
Bart: No way! Water doesn't obey your "rules." It goes where it wants to. Like me, babe.
