- Although the subtitle at the end refuses to admit it, the episode is a parody of the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice rock opera Evita. The reason that they refuse it at the end is because Webber dislikes having his works parodied.
- The songs in the episode parody songs from Evita:
- Marge said that she played Candy Land with Maggie and threw vodka in her face.
- Martin said he got the idea of a casino night at the school from an episode of Saved by the Bell.
- After Homer wins on the wheel, he tells Marge that they'll get a PlayStation 1.
- When Homer is mocking Nelson, he jokes that Nelson drives a pink Miata.
- Nelson sung "I Am Iron Man", a parody of "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath.
- When Lisa walked into the teacher's lounge, Skinner told her they were just discussing Vasco da Gama.
- When Skinner gives Lisa a key to the school, Skinner says it's like she's Harry Potter without any of the wonder.
- Marge said that Lisa was like Geraldine Ferraro.
- The postage stamps Homer has feature Bugs Bunny from Looney Tunes and Elvis Presley.
