Couch: The Simpsons are swept away by a crashing wave and only the television set survives.
- Lisa reads The Babysitter's Club book #14 - The Formula Formula, while Janey is on book #20 - The President's Baby Is Missing.
- Among the shops at Squidport are Turban Outfitters, Just Rainsticks, It's A Wonderful Knife, My 1st Tattoo, Much Ado About Muffins (to eat or not to eat), Crypto Barn, Itchy and Scratchy Store (Poochie Close-Out), Malaria Zone, Bloaters and Planet Hype, a restaurant owned by Rainier Wolfcastle.
- Dr Hibbert's surgery number is 555-3642, while Dr Nick Riviera, based at 44 Bow Street, is on 555-NICK (We Stitch and Don't Snitch).
Look out for: Homer trapped by the fountain. Maggie high on too much caffeine.
Notes: A clever episode, if a little disjointed - the two stories don't gel as well as normal.
