  • The episode title comes from "Day of the Jackal".
  • The plot comes from "The Manchurian Candidate", where brainwashed American soldiers attempt a Presidential assassination.
  • Bart walks through the schoolyard with creepy voices in his head, a parody of the "Nightmare on Elm Street" films.
  • When the network executives are blown up, they reform from liquid metal like the T1000 terminator from "Terminator 2: Judgment Day".
