* Don't forget when everyone at the Candy Convention chases after Homer and Marge, who has trouble running with her stuffed trenchcoat. Homer stops at the exit, kicks a Buzz Cola machine to get a can of pop, rips the tab off with his teeth, rips open a packet of Pop Rocks, and puts the packet over the can and shakes it. "See you in hell, candy boys!" he calls, lobbing it into the crowd. They all stop to watch as Homer continues to run in slow motion, the glass of the doors shattering behind him with the force of the fiery blast.

* Homer has one in ''Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind''. After being saved by a party boat with a bouncy castle from a suicide attempt, Homer recovers all of his memories: [[spoiler: The reason why Homer drank the Forget-Me-Shot and erased all of his memories in the last 24 hours was that Marge was planning an surprise anniversary party, and he didn't want to spoil all of her efforts by seeing the surprise coming. The real awesome moment was when [[CrazyPrepared Homer anticipated himself committing suicide]] after drinking the shot, so he warns Lenny to put a bouncy castle on the party boat before drinking it. ''Homer saved himself from committing suicide for all the wrong reasons!'']]

* In "Bart Vs. Lisa Vs. The Third Grade", where Lisa moves up a grade and Bart gets moved down, ending up in the same class. The kicker is that Bart does ''better'' than Lisa. No, that's not a typo. It's nice to see that after so many episodes of living in his sister's shadow, Bart gets to shine for once.
-->'''Teacher''': A rooster sits on a roof facing north. It lays an egg. Which way does it row?
-->'''Lisa''': Okay, the sun rises in the east, so the rooster would probably want to lay it on the cool side...
-->'''Bart''': Roosters don't lay eggs. They're boys.
-->'''Teacher''': Very good, Bart.
-->'''Bart''': Mm-hmm!

When his family comes looking for him and are in the line of a car, Homer rescues and saves them. Then as the sun raises behind he realizes what it is he's put on Earth for and begins a crusade about safety that winds up with him getting his job back as well as a promotion.

** Anytime Flanders stops being a doormat and starts standing up for himself, it's awesome. Particularly in "Bart Star" when Homer is being a total {{Jerkass}} while Flanders is trying to coach. After a few games worth of taunting, Ned walks up to him, tells him off, and forces ''him'' to become the coach.

** The first instance of Flanders losing patience with Homer is "Dead Putting Society" first he firmly but calmly orders him out of his premises after he admonishes his family. When he tries to make amends and instead is goaded by Homer over a golfing tournament, he snaps back gloriously, angering Homer on purpose for the first time.
-->'''Homer:''' How about this Henny Penny? If Barts wins, you have to mow my lawn.
-->'''Flanders:''' And if Todd wins, you have to mow ''my'' lawn, and do a ''decent job of it for a change!''
