Behind the Laughter[edit]

The Season 4 episode "Lady Bouvier's Lover" contains several references to scenes from the film "The Graduate", for which Simon & Garfunkel provided the soundtrack; the closing song of that episode is a parody of Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence".

In the Season 7 episode "Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Two), Mr. Burns sings "Hello, lamp lost, whatcha knowin'? I've come to watch your power flowin'", a reference to Simon & Garfunkel's song "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)".
