Trivia

This episode parodies, and contains many references to, the famous Scopes Monkey Trial and the play Inherit the Wind. Lisa, like Scopes, is arrested for teaching evolution. Flanders, like prosecutor William Jennings Bryan, answers questions about the Bible on the witness stand. The prosecutor, Wallace Brady, has the same initials as prosecutor William Jennings Bryan, whose name was changed to Matthew Harrison Brady in Inherit the Wind. The defense attorney's name, Clarice Drummond, is a play on Clarrence Darrow, who was renamed Henry Drummond in Inherit the Wind. See more »

Goofs

When Lisa opens "On the Origin of Species" to read to her fellow students, she starts "Chapter 1" but the pages are clearly open in the middle of the book. See more »
