Alternate Versions

In one scene, Homer and Ned are at the roulette table. While trying to pick numbers, the original airing has Homer saying, "When are the kids' birthdays? Barney's is April 20th, same as Hitler's." After the episode re-ran on the same day as the incidents of Columbine High School a few months later, the episode's third re-run, as well as international versions and the DVD release, changed Homer's line from "April 20th" to "June 15th, same as Lassie's." When "Viva" hit syndication, they kept it as April 20th. See more »
