Tips and TricksEdit
- Use any shortcuts possible to beat Smithers, as he won't take them.
The track that plays during this mission features a prominent xylophone line and brass section. The track is also shared with Return of the Nearly-Dead, ...and Baby Makes 8, Duff for Me, Duff for You and Alien "Auto"topsy Part III. There's also a dramatic part of the track that plays at the start of the mission, but instantly switches to the regular version upon getting into a vehicle, though it can be heard if the player restarts the mission in the car.
Carl: Hey, Homer, you look like you're having one of your trademark adventures.
Homer: (acting crazy) Danger... Mr. Burns... mini cameras... black vans!
Carl: Whoa, good thing I'm drunk!
Homer: Stupid drunk...oh no, he's going to warn Burns! I can't believe I'm racing the same guy twice in one day.
(Homer races Waylon Smithers, wins and meets Charles Montgomery Burns)
Homer: C. Montgomery Burns, I know you're guilty! J'accused...sir!
Mr.Burns: Fine I admit it, I had Amelia Earhart's plane shot down. That hussy was getting too big for her jodhpurs.
Homer: No, you're spying on Springfield with your black vans and surveillance cameras.
Mr.Burns: Black vans? Hmm. Aren't they connected with some sort of, pizza owner concern?
Homer: What!? They were only pizza vans?! I'm a class five idiot!
Mr.Burns: Smithers, release the hounds! And if this oaf is an employee of the plant, fire him at once.
- The name is a pun of the Fast and the Furious movie series.
- This pun was also the title of a season 7 episode of the US TV series, King of the Hill.
- The Power Plant shortcut is blocked off to make it harder, but if the player parks the car halfway in the entrance before starting, they can get back into it when the mission begins.
- During the entirety of the mission before it is completed, all the power-plant workers still in their suits are seen outside of the power plant, meaning they may have been dismissed from their shifts.
- Several prerelease articles show that Smithers was originally located at the front of the power plant parked next to a Surveillance Van. Also, Homer was supposed to jump over the fence of Mr. Burns' Mansion to talk to Mr. Burns once he gets there, meaning that the mansion was originally going to be accessible in Level 1, but in the final game, it is closed and it can only be accessed by the use of glitches/cheats.
