Cultural references[edit]

  • The title is a reference to Sleeping with the Enemy, a 1991 film.
  • The water mark that says "only you can prevent test fraud", is based on Smokey the Bear's quote "Only you can prevent wildfire".
  • Nelson singing in the night next to a candle; he is singing the lyrics to "Papa, Can You Hear Me?". The song is sung by Barbara Striesand in the play Yentl.


  • When Homer draws a picture of himself it looks similar to his original look. Originally, Homer was going to have a G for his ear and the M on his hair and it would form Matt Groening's initials. However, as explained in the audio commentary for "Lost Our Lisa", the design was dumped as it would be too distracting for fans.



  • When Lisa enters the living room to join Bart's party, she passes through the foyer by the back door. But when she runs away crying, the couch, lamp, rug, and dresser suddenly appear there.
  • When Nelson enters the Simpson house, he acts like he's never been there before, even though he was there in "Bart the General", after admitting defeat by Bart.
