** With Don Mattingly getting sent home over his sideburns, that makes ''eight'' misfortunes. What's number nine? Homer getting beaned unconscious during his last turn at the bat. Granted that won them the game, but to Homer it definitely qualifies.

* Why is the Loch Ness Monster so comfortable with being photographed in "Monty Can't Buy Me Love"? Because people flock to the lake every day to take pictures of her. She's used to it.

* In "Black Widower", Bart has to try to explain Selma's precarious situation to Homer ''four times'' before he goes to Marge. While this could easily be a joke about how dumb Homer is, Homer also ''hates'' Patty and Selma. His lack of giving a shit about Selma coupled with his stupidity equals the point not just escaping him, but Homer going out of his way to avoid it. So Bart goes to the parent he ''knows'' will want to save Selma's life.

* At the beginning of "Gump Roast," Wiggum tells Homer there's a law against impersonating movie characters when he sees Homer dressed as ForrestGump. In the paddy wagon we see Moe dressed as AustinPowers and Dr. Hibbert as [[StarWars Darth Vader.]] Hibbert dressed as Darth Vader makes sense since Vader was voiced by a deep voiced black man, but the brilliance is that Moe and Austin Powers are both perverts. It makes sense a creep like Moe would imitate an outdated, dorky movie character to pick up women.

* In ''Brick Like Me'', Lisa becomes friends with older girls from school, because they share a passion of The Survival Games. One of thegirls even mentions that Lisa's paper about the series was correct, "that the series was about love". If The Survival Games is more than just the ShallowParody shown at the end of the episode, Lisa most likely knew the true social and political message of the series. It's even possible she read it because it had become a fad at school (though Literature/TheHungerGames is not an appropriate read for elementary school children), and understood immediately. But since Lisa desperately wants friends, she went with the "romance" aspect because she'd then agree with all the girls who read the series for that reason. It's even mirrored during the projection, with Homer who went there [[JustHereForGodzilla just to watch an action movie]], and thus has to sit through everything else.

* 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?

* In "Team Homer" Principal Skinner recalls how some slogans from MadMagazine caused him to lose a battle and get thrown in a POW camp in the VietnamWar. This could be why he had MadMagazines in the room of confiscated items in "Separate Vocations." He knew a student who had one in their possession might cause problems.

* The town drunk in the Italian village in "The Italian Bob" is a 2 year old who looks and sounds like Barney Gumble. In "Selma's Choice" Barney is a sperm donor. It's possible that the child is his son through artificial internalization.
