Notes

  • As Bart enters the Flanders' house, stuck to his cast is his wastebasket, the garden hose, a piece of turf, a tricycle and a dog on a leash.

  • The main plot of this episode parodies Hitchcock's "Rear Window" - in fact, when Bart is peering into "Springfield's seamy underbelly", he sees Jimmy Stewart (from the film) in a wheelchair looking back at him.
