In the Simpsons episode “Marge in Chains” from Season 4 (or 5…), there’s a courtroom scene where Lionel Hutz test’s the witness’ (Apu’s) memory, by turning his back and asking him what color necktie he’s wearing. Of course Apu nails it, and Hutz tries to wriggle out of it by removing his tie.
This rings all sorts of bells with me as being a parody of a famous movie scene. But www.snpp.com doesn’t mention it, and the DVD commentary doesn’t help.
Anyone recognize the reference?
