* In "Marge Be Not Proud," Bart imagines video game characters like DonkeyKong, [[SuperMarioBrothers Mario and Luigi,]] and SonicTheHedgehog telling him to steal Bone Storm, while Lee Carvallo from a golf game tells him not to do it. This is Bart's conscience telling him to do it and he's justifying it. This is why the popular mascots tell him to do it, but Lee Carvallo tries to talk him out of it. Bart thinks the golf game is lame, and of course he'd imagine the character talking him out of it.

* "Marge Be Not Proud" has become known as an infamous example in Marge not showing Bart any affection after he did something horrible. This leads Bart to fear that his mother doesn't love him anymore, which would certainly qualify for FridgeHorror in itself if it weren't within the story. But what if something terrible happened to Bart, like a serious injury, a heartbreaking experience, childhood trauma, etc.? Would she STILL not show any affection for Bart then? It doesn't help that, not counting the 138th Episode Spectacular, this episode was immediately after [[ArchEnemy Sideshow Bob's]] Last Gleaming...

** Marge did not actually stop loving Bart. That was Bart's interpretation, for understandable reasons, but in Marge's view, she decided that the problem was that she was coddling him too much, so she tried to back off on that and come to terms with the fact that he was no longer a completely innocent little kid. She seemed to think that he had shoplifted in part as some form of protest that she was not letting him grow up. While Bart was seeing the situation as he was so bad that his mother could no longer accept him, Marge was seeing it as her failing as a parent and she needed to approach this with tough love. Towards the end, though, she must have realized that this solution was hurting him more than it was helping and he still needed mothering, especially as he had gone out of his way to rectify his mistake.

** Need doesn't have house insurance because he thinks it's a [[WhatAnIdiot form of gambling]]. We see the results of that in this episode+-no money to purchase a new home or properly rebuild the old one. What other insurance doesn't he have? It's flat-out illegal to not have car insurance. What if he had died and left his wife and children with no financial support because he didn't have life insurance? Even now, that could happen, or he or one of his Don's could be injured or get sick and be swamped with medical bills because he doesn't have health insurance either.

* How did Creator/WeirdAlYankovic obtain one of Bart's prank phone calls to Moe (used in his song "Phony Calls") before he even met the Simpsons? For that matter, "Why Does This Always Happen to Me?" mentions actually watching ''The Simpsons''. How is that even possible?

* A meteor initially mistaken for a harmless comet, once pierced the skies of Springfield, and after shrinking to the size of a baseball, it strikes Ned Flanders' bomb shelter, completely destroying it. Some time later, a hurricane hit the town, and only Ned's house (no one else's) was destroyed or even damaged. And over the course of several years later, Ned loses two wives. Does God actually have it out for Ned for some reason?

* "Homer vs. Dignity", the fifth episode of the twelfth season, shows Mr. Burns hiring Homer to serve as his "prank money" for Burns' amusement. He orders Homer to throw a pudding at Lenny, and Homer does so, twice. But when Homer, unbidden, hits a nearby Carl (Homer and Lenny's African American co-worker)with pudding, Mr. Burns is horrified, condemning Homer's action and rushing to help flush out Carl's eyes, giving Homer a death glare of disapproval. Could it be that even Mr. Burns is at the mercy of the perceived double-standard when it comes to supposed hate crimes?
