Trivia
Divider
Walker Edminston plays both Bart Rathbone and Tom Riley, so he was actually debating himself in this episode.
- Haystack

To add to what Haystack said, according to Dave Arnold, Walker was so talented at switching voices and personalities that hardly any post-production editing was needed for the debate.
- Jonathan

Appropriately, part two of this episode originally aired on the Saturday before Election Day in the U.S.

Goofs
Divider
On the news report it said early returns had Tom Riley with 77 percent and Bat Rathbone with 14 percent. The numbers don't add up 77+14=91 not 100. If Tom had 77 percent that Bart would have 23 percent unless there was some big write in caimpain which of course was never mentioned.
- David

Often times the votes don't actually equal 100% for various reasons - such as not voting, write in campaigns and other legitimate reasons. So it is possible it was a math goof, it can also validly be explained in other ways.

Allusions

Tom's fuss over makeup for the televised debate may have been a sly reference to the 1960 Presidential debate, where Nixon didn't wear makeup, much to his detriment.

Quotes

Bart: Everything is beautiful in it\'s own way. I would like to teach the whole world to sing in perfect harmony. We are the world, we are the children. Don\'t stop thinkin about tommorow cuz it\'ll soon be here.
- Walkerfan

Bart: Unlike you, Riley, I believe in toleration and as mayor I won't put up with anyone who isn't tolerant.

Tom: You won't tolerate
intolerance?

Bart: Right!

Tom: So you're intolerant of people who tolerate intolerance

Bart: Yeah, my first act as mayor will be to investigate intolerance and stamp it out!
- a fan
