Giuliani Inspiration[edit]

I don't know why this was edited out. Former NYC Mayor spent time with some friends, an interracial gay male couple, at some point, possibly after difficulties with his wife. I am almost sure this was the inspiration for this Simpsons episode. I don't know why that isn't in the article. jcm 11/23/11 — Preceding unsigned comment added by Chumley41 (talkcontribs) 03:46, 24 November 2011 (UTC)

Title[edit]

Shouldn't the title of this article be "3 Gays of the Condo"? Theshibboleth 03:12, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

Nevermind. I had seen an incorrect listing on the local Fox station. Consulted thesimpsons.com, and the current title is correct. Theshibboleth 03:23, 10 January 2006 (UTC)

The Ballad of Homer and Marge[edit]

Does anyone know a place to get the lyrics, because I typed them as I saw the footage of the actual show, and it was annoying. But I got them and I posted them in the article. NinjaPirates!!!

4:20?[edit]

Maybe I'm being a little dim this morning, but does anyone want to explain the cultural reference about Marge and the clock showing 4:20? Markhw42 07:21, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Time to smoke pot. Not that it matters. Season 14 and beyond were all crap. Kevin 08:17, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Song at One Night Stan´s[edit]

Does anybody knows the name of the song being played at One Night Stan´s? --189.141.128.152 (talk) 04:17, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Terry W. Greene?[edit]

Who is Terry W. Greene (listed as Julio's voice). I was under the impression it was Hank Azaria as the voice... i'm not able to verify, can anyone else clarify this? Nevermind. I've confirmed that it is Hank Azaria. Unless someone has a reason as to why not, Terry W. Greene is removed from the Guest Stars as it wasn't. P.Mk (talk) 02:53, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Cultural references[edit]

  • Dr. Hibbert's hair style on the videotape Homer watches is a reference to 80s pop musician, Ranking Roger.
  • The restaurant Homer and Marge go to is a parody of Medieval Times .
  • While searching for a puzzle piece in a coat closet, Homer says, "Puzzle piece, come out to play..." in reference to the 1979 film The Warriors.
  • Homer refers to Maggie as Silent Bob.
  • Mr. Smithers passes by a bakery called Sconewall Bakery, which refers to Stonewall.
  • Homer says that he sent two songs called "Another One Bites the Crust" and "Livin' la Pizza Loca" to Weird Al, presumably as a parody of "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen and "Livin' la Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin. Al seems unimpressed by Homer's idea, claiming "they were pretty much the same". This is a reference to the fact that Al gets many ideas for parodies from fans, most of which he rejects. On both his MySpace and website, Al states that he does not accept submissions for song parody ideas. Also, a possible reason Al didn't like "Another One Bites the Crust" was because he'd already done a parody of that song, entitled "Another One Rides the Bus".
  • Weird Al's band members (Jim West, Steve Jay, Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, and Rubén Valtierra) are depicted as providing the music for "Homer and Marge", but they do not make actual voice appearances.
  • The song being used while the gay men take Homer shopping is "West End Girls" by Pet Shop Boys.
  • This episode refers to former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani who moved in with an interracial gay couple during his marital problems and eventual divorce.
  • The game Homer is seen playing when drunk at Moe's is Asteroids. Homer calls the ship the S.S. Triangle.
  • Julio makes an appearance in Season 19's E. Pluribus Wiggum.
  • While looking for the missing puzzle piece in the closet, Homer pushes aside his Pin Pals jacket, despite it having been sold in the episode Homer's Phobia, the first episode dealing with Homer and homosexuality. He also pushed his Mr. Plow Jacket from the season 4 episode Mr. Plow

The episode's title is derived from the 1975 film Three Days of the Condor.
