The Simpsons

Homer's Barbershop Quartet - S5-E1

Question: In the scene where the fans turn against Chief Wiggum in Moe's Cavern, Moe says something to the Be Sharps manager about paying girls to scream. When the manager says "I didn't pay any girls to scream" Moe has a shocked look on his face and then turns off the Cavern's neon light and drives away fast. I've tried very hard but cannot get this joke. Can anyone explain it to me?

Chosen answer: Not as much a joke as it is Moe is so surprised that this small, unknown band is gaining that much support without needing to pay them to do so.

Mistakes

This is a mistake for the introduction for the later episodes. When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage.
