Trivia

In this Season 2 episode, "The Negotiation," Lisa mentions that one of her brothers invented a game bought by Microsoft. When Dave asks what it's called, Lisa shrugs it off, commenting "It's something like 'Super Karate Monkey Death Car'..." This game name is also later used in a Season 4 episode as the evolved and mistranslated title of a Jimmy James' book. See more »
