* It took me years to get the ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'' ending in "Tales from the Public Domain." It seems like a CopOutEnding or a BigLippedAlligatorMoment but the reason Homer said {{Hamlet}} says based on Ghostbusters was because in the version Homer told King Claudius left a trail of slime behind like Slimer.
** There is further FridgeBrilliance between the ending to this episode and the ending to the next Anthology episode "Margical History Tour." When filming Film/{{Ghostbusters}} DanAykroyd referred to Slimer as the ghost of Creator/JohnBelushi. In the later Homer sings about AnimalHouse which is one of Belushi's most famous films. That being said "Margical History Tour's" ending is a CallBack to "Tales from the Public Domain."

** Halloween is 'All Hallow's Eve', the day before All Saints Day. It'd make sense for a hardcore Christian to be engaging in what has roots in Christian tradition. Plus, he's one of the nicest guys in Springfield, it isn't out of character for him to play the role of candy-charity for the sake of children.

* Some recent episodes show NegativeContinuity involving Moe's Tavern such as him cleaning the wall and discovering a window. Episodes such as "Dumbbell Indemnity" and "Mommy Beerest" show that Moe's burned down and was rebuilt, hence why he discovered it when he did.

* It seems a tad odd for Marge to be such a big fan of [[TheBeatles Ringo Starr]], considering most of the fangirls under the influence of Beatlemania went for either [=McCartney=] or Lennon. Then it hit me. Marge's characterisation is somewhat bland, with there being few Marge based episodes compared to Homer, Bart and Lisa. Despite this, she usually plays a large role in the episodes, and usually the episodes centered around her involve her being out of action and the family collapsing. Just like a drummer in a band, she's the more forgettable one and rarely anyone's favourite, and yet she's one of the most important characters, without her the whole family dynamic would fall apart like a band without a drummer to keep them in time.

* In "Old Yeller-Belly", while praising cats, Homer states that to him, Yusuf Islam will always be Cat Stevens. This gets reflected in his [[ImagineSpot]] in "Mypods And Boomsticks", when American music CDs get changed to Cat Stevens.

* If Flanders is a hardcore Christian, why is he shown celebrating Halloween in several episodes?

Added DiffLines:

* In ''TheSimpsonsMovie'', there's an early scene where, as the Simpsons family is piling out of the car to go to church, Homer is audibly arguing as to why he'd should be there. One of the last lines he says is "Those pious morons worshiping their phony-baloney God" as they walk through the front door with predictable results. One might argue that this is a standard Jerkass Homer's forced TakeThat against Christianity, but, in the Season 12 episode "HOMR", while [[ItMakesSenseInContext after having a crayon removed from his brain that drastically increased his I.Q.,]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext, he was working on a flat tax proposal when he accidentally discovered airtight evidence against the existence of God and casually rubbed it in the face of Flanders.]] Granted, at the end of the episode, [[ItMakesSenseInContext he had an operation to shove another crayon up his nose to restore his intelligence to its previous level, barely remembering that]] he wrote [[spoiler:an apology letter to Lisa immediately afterward,]] but wouldn't it make sense that he'd remember what he thought was probably the greatest "Screw You, Flanders!" moment in his life that he had printed evidence to back up with when he wanted to use it as an excuse?

* When Marge tells Lisa to stay away from Bleeding Gums Murphy in "Moaning Lisa" she tells him it's because she fears strangers. Marge was apologizing because she thought she might be misconstrued as racist since her daughter was hanging out with a black jazz musician.

* In "In The Name Of The Grandfather" one of Grandpa's dreams was to pitch in the Negro Leagues, which Homer sees an issue with. Abe has a black ancestor and thought he could get in based on that. This episode aired before "The Color Yellow" so Homer doesn't know about it yet, hence why he sees an issue with it.
