Later, Raphael comes to ask for the boxes back, but Bart and Lisa refuse, leading to Raphael threatening to come back with others, in a very cliché the Lord of the Rings voice. When Raphael comes back, he is accompanied by an army of delivery people. They them begin war, with The Fields of Pelennor playing as background music (a piece of music from Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy). The battle is a parody of the Battle of the Hornburg from The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. As well as a delivery man riding a fell beast (much like a Nazgûl), several remarks are made, mirroring ones made in the film trilogy.
