Trivia

Homer's hairstyles change several times throughout the episode. He starts off with long hair, then to a 1970s style small afro, then to a more close cropped 1950s type haircut, and finally a 1980s Miami Vice (1984) style angular cut with a small ponytail. See more »

Goofs

There is no logical way that Karl could have known about the Simpsons' wedding anniversary, as Homer forgot all about it and this sort of information would not be in his personal record at the power plant. See more »

Quotes

Smithers: Hey, what do you care if this guy's bald?
Karl: My reasons... are my own.
