  • In the mid-20th century, the line was a catchphrase representing inconsequential conversation and was ubiquitous in popular culture. It is believed to have originated from the "Dere Mable" series by Edward Streeter.
  • The line's appearance on The Simpsons may be an homage to Tex Avery (1908–1980), who inserted it into several of his cartoons.
