From the Balcony references
- In episode 4, Statler and Waldorf criticize Simpson's role in The Dukes of Hazard because she had a speaking part.
- In episode 13, Waldorf hears the news of Simpson's split up with Lachey, which he explains to Statler that she will now have "more time to devote to her acting." Both cranky critics cry at the sound of the news.
