Simpsons, The Easter Egg - Les Mis in the Simpsons

In an episode where Sideshow Bob is in prison, his inmate number is 24601, which is Jean Valjean's number from the Hugo novel Les Miserables. It is prominent in the musical as well and is important to the plot. There are lots of things like this in the Simpsons.

The number 24601 is also referenced in the episode where we find out about Homer's short lived music career with the "B Sharps." At the flee market in the beginning, Principal Skinner finds a prison-helmet-thing that was his from the war. It has 24601 on it too.

Once again, I must clear this up. The price when Maggie is scanned is $847.63 (or $863.47 it gets confusing)which according to a study published a little bit before the show began was how much it costs to raise a baby a month. No, this doesn't change every episode like Bart's Blackboard, Lisa's Sax or the couch sequence. The NRA4EVR bit was used in the 138th episode spectacular and was a joke that poked fun at all the "superfans" who tape the show and freeze frame portions of it to see things more closely.

While this comment does not directly relate to this episode, it has to do with numbers and such...in the episode where Homer takes over as coach of the football team, Rod and Todd are wearing amusing jerseys. Rod's number is 66 and Todd's number is 6, so when they stand next to each other they form...

This is also true in "Space Cases" when Catherina was put in the Space Jail, the number on her collar was 24601. I think "24601" appears in many movies/TV shows as a tribute to Victor Hugo's fantastic novel.

Some guy you are wrong. When Maggie is scanned it says she is worth $847.63c. It says this in The Simpsons guide in the profile section.

The reason the number when Maggie is scanned is $847.63c is that that was the average amount a baby cost to look after in a week! Ha! An egg within an egg!

The number is used at another time as well... in the opening screen at the supermarket when Maggie is scanned through the register it rings up as 264.01. One of the episodes (the 300th episode or something hosted by Troy McClure) said that it says NRA4EVR but if you freeze-frame the intro it actually says 264.01.
