Marge's Dream
Marge dreams that she and Homer are Adam and Eve. They peacefully live in the Garden of Eden until a snake (the jailbird Snake plays the snake in the dream) tempts Adam into eating dozens of apples from the forbidden tree. He persuades Eve to try one and, even though Homer ate the most, God (Ned Flanders) witnesses her sin and Eve is banished from the Garden of Eden, until Adam thinks of a way of getting her back in. In the process they kill God's unicorn named Gary. A furious Flanders expels them both from the Garden of Eden.

Lisa's Dream
Lisa imagines she and all the other Springfield Elementary students are Israelites in ancient Egypt, with the Pharaoh (Principal Skinner) making them build a pyramid. Only Moses (Milhouse) can liberate the Israelites. When Bart defaces the Pharaoh's Tomb, supposedly incited by the burning bush, he gets the other students punished. Lisa helps Moses (Milhouse) produce plagues to scare off the Pharaoh, but they fail. This in turn gets Lisa and Milhouse banished to a Pyramid prison. When they escape, Milhouse gathers all the students and attempts to leave. When they reach the lake, Lisa has an idea to get across: They simultaneously flush all the Egyptians' toilets to drain the lake. As they cross, the Pharaoh and his guards follow, but the water fills the lake back up and swallows them. They enjoying splashing each other, and then return to the shore. Pleased that they have escaped, Milhouse asks Lisa if it is clean sailing for the Israelites, but Lisa disappoints Milhouse with the truth. Milhouse focuses on the moment and satisfies the kids' hunger by seeing manna and says that can feed them, to which everyone cheers his leadership.

Homer's Dream
Homer pictures himself as King Solomon, who can solve disputes over objects by cutting each object in half. Lenny and Carl fight over ownership of a pie. King Solomon cuts it in half, sentences Lenny and Carl to death and then eats the pie. Next, the theme to The People's Court plays during the entrance of Jesus Christ and Checker Chariot.

Bart's Dream
The last story is an action-packed one where Bart sees himself as King David, who kills Goliath, but hasn't won the war yet: Nelson is Goliath II, Goliath's son. Goliath II has killed Methuselah (Grampa), Bart's oldest friend. In retaliation, Bart challenges Goliath II, but having no stones to sling at him, Bart loses and is catapulted from the city. Bart then meets Ralph, a shepherd, who claims he can kill Goliath II. Ralph dies, which enrages Bart even more. He then trains up to try and slay Nelson. Having to climb up the enormous Tower of Babel beforehand, Bart manages to kill Nelson by throwing a lit lantern down his throat. Nelson is surprisingly still alive, but is quickly killed by Ralph's gravestone, hurled by Ralph himself, who also had not died. Much to his amazement, Bart is sent to jail as the townspeople claim that Goliath was the best King they ever had, building roads, libraries and hospitals.

As the family wakes up, they realize that the Apocalypse has come. Although Lisa can go to Heaven, Homer takes her down to Hell, along with the rest of the family.

Cultural references

  • In the Moses segment, Chief Wiggum resembles Edward G. Robinson's character from The Ten Commandments. In the David and Goliath segment, he again appears, and says "Where's your messiah now?"
  • The scene where Marge/Eve is making tools is similar to a scene in the Dawn of Man sequence from the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  • Nelson/Goliath falling off the tower parodies the way King Kong falls off the Empire State Building in the 1933 film.
  • As the Simpsons go into Hell, the AC/DC song "Highway to Hell" is playing.
  • Before Bart's fight against Nelson, an overconfident Bart says that he will simply throw a stone to the head as he did with Goliath and give a quick speech telling kids not to drop out of school. Santa's Little Helper talks and calls Bart "Davey". He tries to present a more realistic view to Bart, saying that he is out of shape. Santa's Little Helper's voice and reminding Bart trouble is ahead is a clear reference to Art Clokey's Davey and Goliath.
  • When Bart is attempting to infiltrate the tower, Nelson is heard belching and discards the remains of his meal, which consists of the skeleton of a whale. Bart is mournful as he sees the skeleton of Jonah, who was a friend of his and died inside the whale. In the Bible, Jonah did not die inside the whale, but it was instead sent by God as an unconventional transport to the city of Nineveh; though Bart does say "Oh Jonah, you died the same way you lived, inside of a whale.
  • When Bart is ratted out by the burning bush, Bart says, "The bush set me up!" This is a reference to Washington DC mayor Marion Barry, who, when he was busted for buying crack cocaine, exclaimed "The bitch set me up!"
  • One Man in the episode is holding a sign saying 3:16 a reference to WWE star Stone Cold Steve Austin. It is also a reference to multiple signs at sporting events with the words "John 3:16" written on them, referencing the bible passage.
  • When Bart believes that he has won the battle after the explosion, Nelson rises from the tower with devilish hair and ominous music plays in the background. This is a reference to the Night on Bald Mountain/Ave Maria scene from the Disney film "Fantasia".
