Homer: All right, if you must know. Lisa and I have been gambling on pro football.
Marge: Homer!
Homer: You promised you wouldn't get mad!

  • Mrs. Hoover's leg dissappears in one scene.
  • In the first shot, the sun is setting behind a nearly flat plain, but in the next shot there is a large mountain in front of it?
