Trivia[edit]

  • When Homer refers to Oregon as "the birthplace of Matt Groening," he mispronounces the show creator's last name as "Gro-ning," a spoof on the common error. The Simpsons show creator's last name is correctly pronounced "Gray-ning".
  • This episode disproves the common fan theory that Springfield is in Oregon because Homer must drive to Oregon from Springfield's location.
  • Myra, Principal Skinner's secretary, makes her first appearance in this episode. Her voice sounds similar to the late Doris Grau who voiced Lunch Lady Doris.
  • Serious Homer is dressed in Homer's conductor uniform from "Marge vs. the Monorail".
  • On the Simpsons' website, The Simpsons.com, it stated that this episode aired on the same date but originally in 2005. This has since been corrected.
  • Homer says during a conversation with Bart: "I'm 38 years old, driving a crappy car, with a son who doesn't respect me, and I'm one Snickers pie away from losing my foot to diabetes." This unusually dark statement was arguably out of character for The Simpsons and Homer, who usually takes a happy-go-lucky approach to life and who shies away from serious discussion with his son. Also, Homer has usually been identified as 39 years old in recent episodes.
  • Skinner's car is seen as a pre-owned Toyota Camry, which Skinner quotes that 1995 was a fine year for Camrys, even though his spent three years in a lake which he says while admiring it in the school parking lot. It's never seen again after the episode, according to the episode guide it says that the steam leak destroyed it with the school.
  • In the German dub, this was the last episode in which Elisabeth Volkmann provided the voice of Marge Simpson. After Volkmann's sudden death in 2006, Anke Engelke took over. The German version of "We're on the Road to D'oh-where" is dedicated to Volkmann.
  • Mona Simpson makes a cameo in a deleted scene.
