In the episode, Homer will bring a top-secret briefcase to Paris, in exchange for a vacation discount for his family. In the basement, under some trash, Homer discovers a car, which Jay Leno ends up buying.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Al Jean, executive producer of the show, comments, “We just said, ‘He’s the one guy that this plot would make sense for. There is no one who is simultaneously as funny and who knows more about cars than Jay Leno.’”
Regarding the recording of the episode with Leno, Al Jean comments “We had a marble interior, and he goes ‘They didn’t have marble interiors in those cars, they had wooden interiors! Whoever did this didn’t quite know their cars!’”
