Oh, meltdown. It’s one of these annoying buzzwords. We prefer to call it an ‘unrequested fission surplus’.— Burns
This is a very regular occurrence on The Simpsons: quick voiceovers at the end of commercials or television programs seen on the show. Here's a complete list of them, including the episode they were in.
A commercial for the lottery begins this episode:
Announcer: The lottery: where everybody wins.
Voiceover: Actual odds of winning one in three hundred and eighty million.
An I&S Movie advert:
Voiceover: Fifty-three percent new footage.
A commercial for Truckasaurus: The Movie is shown, apparently featuring
Marlon Brando as the voice of Truckasaurus. But...
Voiceover: Celebrity voice impersonated.
Next, Homer watches a commercial for Lanley Institute of Monorail Conducting,
which shows a photo of a big official-looking building...
Voiceover: Actual institute may not match photo.
A commercial for Duff Gardens shows Lance Murdock riding on a rollercoaster...
Voiceover: To be completed in 1994.
...and Lance falls off the edge!
Krusty: Every time you watch my show, I will send you forty dollars.
Voiceover: Cheques will not be honoured.
After an Itchy & Scratchy cartoon, the following message appears on
screen, with the voiceover:
"The preceding cartoon contained scenes of violence and should not have been viewed by young children."
The end of a commercial for tickets to the big game:
Voiceover: Warning: tickets should not be taken internally.
Homer adds: "See, because of me they have a warning."
Bart sees an advert for Itchy & Scratchy cells:
Commercial: Each one is absolutely, one hundred percent guaranteed to increase in value.
Voiceover: Not a guarantee.
End of the Mayor Quimby campaign commercial:
Commercial: Quimby. If you were running for mayor he'd vote for you.
Voiceover: Paid for by the "Mayor Quimby for Mayor" Mayoral Committee
A Sideshow Bob commercial:
Commercial: Mayor Quimby supports revolving door prisons. Mayor Quimby even released Sideshow Bob, a man twice committed of attempted murder. Can you trust a man like Mayor Quimby?
Voiceover: Vote Sideshow Bob for Mayor.
When Homer appears on Rock Bottom, the footage is edited to make him sound
like a pervert. Then while a still picture of Homer is displayed on screen...
Godfrey Jones: Mr. Simpson, your silence only incriminates you further. No Mr. Simpson, don't take your anger out on me! Mr. Simpson NOOOOOOO!!!
Voiceover: Dramatisation: may not have happened.
An ad for Cypress Creek and Globex claims that your dreams will come true.
Voiceover: Your dreams may vary from those of Globex Corporation, its subsidiaries and shareholders.

Voiceover: Not a guarantee.

what's on his barbeque.
Voiceover: Light-hearted apron not included. Snapping fingers may not make food appear.
A commercial for Greaser's Cafe, a 50s-style diner:
Owner: So come to Greaser's Cafe, where it's 1955 every day of the year!

Because Homer spent all of Bart's money from his commercial, Homer must
appear in one...but it's for "Viagra Gain":
Voiceover: May cause loss of scalp and penis.
A Krusty campaign commercial is shown, with Krusty appearing as many famous
people and landmarks.
