"Daddy" Poem:
D is for the many pies I baked you.
A is for the apple in my eye.
D is for the dish you ate the pie in.
D is for the apple in my eye.
Y ? Because I love you!
Put them all together, they spell "daddy".

Special appearances: The last scene is a takeoff on "Eight Men Out", a movie about baseball's Shoeless Joe Jackson. In this scene, the Cremators' third baseman might be series creator Ron Leavitt. "Proud to Be Your Bud" (0803) is another episode which is influenced by a movie about Jackson.

Influences: The episode title is inspired by the movie "The Natural" with Robert Redford and Glenn Close.
