B-TV presents the biblical stories of Solomon and Joseph. And Connie tells a fairy tale about a young girl who encounters a very unusual plant. Each character faced temptations and had to make a choice.
- This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »
- Have you ever been tempted?
- Is it wrong to be tempted?
- Can anyone make you act on that temptation, or is it your responsibility?
- The part of the evil Heckleberry bush in the "Storytime with Connie" segment was originally written for Bart. It would have included occasional lines like "You can't chop me down! I'm too strong! Almost as strong as the duct tape they have on sale at the Electric Palace." Because Walker Edmiston became ill and couldn't record (and would sadly pass away later), Jess Harnell filled in. Incidentally, this gave Harnell yet another chance to perform his Bill Cosby impression, previously heard in #560: “The Present Long Ago” and later to be heard in #???: “B-TV: Live!”.
- Unlike previous B-TV episodes, which featured many kids, this episode features only one child actor: Spencer Ganus. The other "kid" in the episode is portrayed by Katie Leigh.
- To date, this episode marks the final appearance of Guy Feldstein.
- When Solomon is getting married to Priscilla, there is a reference to the movie/book The Princess Bride, with the lines "Mawwige is what bwings us together today...that dweam wiffin a--" (he is there interrupted and does not finish the line "dweam wiffin a dweam").

- Solomon's joke about the tax code includes references to 1099 forms and Boeing 747 commercial jetliners.
- The line from the Sodom and Gomorrah commercial "What happens in Sodom, stays in Sodom" is a parody of the catchphrase "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."
- The mock trailer about the story of Joseph's escape from Potiphar's wife is a parody of the 1993 film The Fugitive.

Bill Crosby: Man, that was wise and amazing—and it made sense, too!

King Solomon's Subject: Why does sour cream have an expiration date? Isn't it already sour?
King Solomon: Have you seen how complicated our tax code is? I can't tell the difference between a 1099 and a 747!
