  1. more It’s Raining Men trivia: the song was co-written by Paul Shaffer (from Letterman)!

    ever since i learned that, some 20 years ago, i think of it every single time i see him.

  2. This episode is pretty much my only frame of reference for LOST IN SPACE, and reinforces how terrible Marge’s life is.

    Marge stress-hovering in front of the couch & Patty and Selma’s explanations of fire drills and the communal toilet are part of my everyday vernacular.

  3. Just so I can sleep tonight: the name of the movie with Robbie the Robot is Forbidden Planet, not Fantastic Planet. (Fantastic Planet is an animated French sci-fi film.)

    Good episode. It’s frustrating when the show undersells Marge, especially when you remember how good Julie Kavner is.

  4. Hey Henry! “Hoagie” is actually fairly uncommon around NYC (pretty sure it’s more of a Philly thing). The most popular sandwich vernacular here tends to be “Hero”, which just isn’t as satisfying to say…

  5. The barflies’ reaction to Homer’s harmless prank reminds me of every time people started telling dirty jokes and then I joined in, although I usually did go “too far”.

    I think most people’s attitudes towards therapy is closer to Homer’s than Marge’s. Basically, they think you’re either nuts and belong in the looney bin or weak and need to suck it up. They also think therapists will turn you against your family or (gasp) gay.
