* Sideshow Bob has demonstrated to have a taste for Bart's blood in a Halloween episode.
** Sure, the ''[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS27E5TreehouseOfHorrorXXVI Treehouse of Horror XXVI]]'' segment "Wanted: Dead, then Alive" features some ([[FoeRomanceSubtext possibly romantic]]) FoeYay subtext between Sideshow Bob and Bart (Bob even goes further when he decides to revive his ArchEnemy because it brought him some excitement in his life); but on the other hand, Music/ElvisCostello's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aU_zMvaX05Q "Accidents Will Happen"]],[[note]]a song about "the gamesmanship of romance" and "a kiss-off to a lover given her walking papers for crimes both real and imagined"[[/note]] played in the background of Bart's DeathMontage, may be this, since the song implies Bob to be a pedophile or a MemeticMolester [[RapeAndRevenge taking revenge]] [[{{Lolicon}} toward Bart]]. Perhaps the song is a bit too... [[FreudWasRight unsettling]]. Well, that... and the "I ♥ Bart" tattoo on Bob's back and the [[ILoveTheDead necrophilia between both of them]].
*** There's also that time where he kidnaps Bart and sings to him "I've grown accustomed to his face! And dream of [[EyeScream gouging out his eyes]]!"

* Sonic telling Bart to take the video game in "Marge Be Not Proud" may be a parody of [[AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog Sonic Sez]] where Sonic would normally be opposed to stuff like that.

* In "Lisa's Rival", Hans Moleman crashes a cargo truck full of sugar that Homer takes for himself. Bart thinks he's stealing the sugar, but then Homer reminds him of a clause in Springfield's town charter that says any foodstuffs that touch the ground must go to the village idiot. Now, who in Springfield would be better suited to fulfill that role? In other words, under Springfield law ''the sugar legally belongs to Homer''.

* 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.
