                             1.1  Introduction
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Hello folks, welcome to yet another of my Simpsons FAQs. I wrote
    this because there were in-depth guides for collector cards and
    wasps (YuGiOhFm2002's great guides), but no gags guide. So here it
    goes.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                          1.2  Importance of Gags
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The gags were thrown into Simpsons Hit & Run as little references to
    the television show (as if there weren't enough references already).
    
    You also need to collect all the gags to get 100% in each level and
    the game.

    ===== 3.0 GAG REFERENCES ===========================================
    
    
    If a reference has already been listed for a previous level, it
    won't be listed again.
    
    There are really only three levels. If you're looking for gag
    references in one level, you'll probably find it in the similar
    level.
    
    Here are the similar levels:
        -Levels 1, 4, and 7.
        -Levels 2 and 5.
        -Levels 3 and 6.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                                3.1  Level 1
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    - - - - - - - -
    TV in the house
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    You've seen the TV set in practically every episode. A few memorable
    moments with the television include "There's No Disgrace Like Home"
    where Homer pawns the TV set to pay for family therapy, and "Scenes
    from the Class Struggle in Springfield" when Grampa breaks the TV
    and they have to buy a new one.
    
    - - - - - - - - -
    Any of the swings
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    The swings have been all over the place as well. Two touching swing
    scenes include Homer and Ned's late-night talk in "When Flanders
    Failed", and Ralph and Lisa's reconciliation in "I Love Lisa".
    
    - - - - - - - -
    Backyard grill
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    The grill has seen it's share of on-screen action. Two big
    appearances were "Treehouse of Horrors I" and "Lisa the Vegetarian".
    
    - - - - - -
    Talky tiki
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Homer's mix of the wooden tiki statue and fire didn't quite pan out
    in "Days of Wine and D'oh'ses".
    
    - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Flanders' bomb shelter
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    When Bart discovers a comet in "Bart's Comet", the townspeople all
    take shelter in Flanders' bomb shelter, despite the lack of room,
    food, and oxygen.
    
    - - - - - - - - - - -
    Radioactive gas vent
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    As a result of Homer's intentional hyper-obesity in "King- Size
    Homer", he became the gas vent technician and nearly let out the
    toxic gas. Ironically, his obese butt is what prevents the escape
    of the gas.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Homer's workstation
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Homer has caused quite a bit of trouble at work, but not as much as
    the time he prevents a nuclear meltdown by guessing which is the
    correct button, in the episode entitled "Homer Defined".
    
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    School fire extinguisher
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    During a Smarch PTA meeting in "Treehouse of Horror VI", Principal
    Skinner asks the parents to decide whether or not the school should
    get the fire extinguishers recharged for free. They give a unanimous
    "nay", much to Willy's dismay.
    
    - - - - - - - - -
    School fire alarm
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    The school alarm never seems to go off when there is a fire. Bart's
    devious girlfriend Jessica pulls the alarm in "Bart's Girlfriend",
    and Dolph pulls the alarm for a laugh in "School Shopping Network".
    
    - - - - - - -
    Frostillicus
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Apu takes advantage of Jasper's frozen state in "Lisa the Simpson"
    by using him as a sideshow attraction.
    
    - - - - - - - - -
    Larry the looter
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Bart plays this game of damage and thievery in "Radio Bart".
    
    - - - - - - - - -
    Squishee machine
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    The squishee machine is probably the Kwik-E-Mart's top export, so
    naturally it appears often. Two good episodes are "Boy Scoutz 'N the
    Hood" where Bart and Milhouse go on a squishee bender, and
    "Treehouse of Horror IX" when Apu gets violently murdered and tossed
    in the squishee machine.

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Homer helps out Chief Wiggum by turning himself in for bootlegging
    alcohol, but then he finds out the penalty is a catapult launch. Rex
    Banner tests the machine with a cat in "Homer vs. The Eighteenth
    Amendment".

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    truck in "Brother From Another Series".
    
    - - - - - - -
    Pickled eggs
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Moe's Tavern needs a designated driver, so the only way to choose is
    with the same method they use to choose the pope: drawing pickled eggs
    from a jar. Barney grabs the accursed black egg in "The City of New
    York Vs. Homer Simpson".
    
    - - - - - -
    Love tester
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Moe gets his own spin-off show where his Love Tester is possessed by
    Grampa's soul. He takes the Love Tester along on a hilarious date in
    "The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase".
    
    - - - - - - - -
    Flaming drinks
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Moe steals Homer's drink idea in "Flaming Moe", driving Homer to give
    up the million-dollar secret ingredient.
    
    - - - - - -
    Rat's milk
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Mayor Quimby's corruption knows no bounds in "Mayored to the Mob"
    when he allows the mob to sell rat's milk to the school. For a little
    bit of kickback of course.
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Moleman at the DMV
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Hans Moleman is always getting jerked around by the DMV. He shows up
    in there often, but one "lucky" visit in "Selma's Choice" leads to a
    date with Selma.
    
    - - - - - -
    Try-N-Save
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    The Try-N-Save is the scene of Bart's crime in "Marge Be Not Proud".

    Herman's missile
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Homer isn't allowed to ride the missile in "Homer the Vigilante".
    
    - - - - -
    Dumpster
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Otto loses his job in "The Otto Show" and is forced to live in a
    dumpster behind the Kwik-E-Mart. Well, not a dumpster. A Trash-Co
    waste disposal unit.
    
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
                                3.3  Level 3
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    In "Homer Phobia", Bart and Lisa see an actual robot from the movie
    "Clank Clank, You're Dead". That poor midget...
    
    - - - - - - - -
    Radioactive Man
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Bart's comic book hero gets a big screen upgrade in "Radioactive Man".
    The campy 70s version of Radioactive Man was not used, thank goodness.
    
    - - - - - - - - -
    Wall E. Weasel's
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    - - - - -
    Hot pants
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    - - - - - - - -
    The observatory
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    The mob of townspeople rush to destroy the observatory in "Bart's
    Comet", but later on Lisa gets her first kiss from Nelson near the
    observatory in "Lisa's Date With Density".
    
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Perpetual motion machine
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Lisa builds a perpetual motion machine in "The PTA Disbands", but
    Homer scolds her for not obeying the laws of thermodynamics.
    
    - - - - -
    Telescope
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    While on punishment for an hilarious big-butt balloon, Bart calls
    the observatory about something in the sky. Skinner's hopes of

    comet in "Bart's Comet".
    
    - - - - - - - - - -
    Matter transporter
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
    Homer gets a matter transporter at one hell of a bargain; only 35
    cents! The frighteningly high risk of catastrophic something becomes
    apparent when Bart becomes a fly in "Fly Vs. Fly".
    
    - - - - -
    Camp Bart
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    Thanks to...
    
    1. Matt Groening. The man created 'The Simpsons', which has been on
    the air for 14 years and is still going strong. Shine on you crazy
    bearded bastard!
    
    2. If I thank Matt Groening, then I also have to praise the hundreds
    of individuals who are involved with the show. To the writers, voice
    actors, animators, producers, gofers, and every other person
    involved... thank you!
    
    3. Wilson Lau gets mad props for his kick ass 'Bart vs. the Space
    Mutants' guide. It inspired me to write guides for Simpsons video
    games. 
    
    4. Fox Interactive, Vivendi Universal, and Radical Entertainment for
    making the game.
    
    5. The Simpsons Archive (www.snpp.com) for the most comprehensive
    Simpsons info on the net (helped for the references section).
    
    6. Thank YOU for reading. After all, I didn't write this for my own
    health...

    The issue of too many e-mails isn't a problem, so I'll most likely
    respond to any questions (for now). But, I do delete e-mails without
    a subject. Put something like 'Gags guide' to be sure I read it.
