* LaserGuidedKarma: Despite trying to save face and show others that she made a mistake (and Joyce going overboard), Lois did get what she deserved for pranking an unpopular girl . (not to mention her cruel treatment towards her daughter).

* LaserGuidedKarma: Despite trying to save face and show others that she made a mistake (and Joyce going overboard), Lois did get what she deserved for pranking an unpopular girl . (not to mention her cruel treatment towards her daughter). Exaggerated trope since it comes off as DisproportionateRetribution.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Lois' prank on Joyce is a bit similar to the prank that Jessica plays on a fat girl in the movie ''Film/TheHotChick''.

Added DiffLines:

* AdultsAreUseless: Implied in Joyce's flashback. Lois and the other cheerleaders are never seen being punished for their prank on Joyce.

* DependingOnTheWriter: This is one of Lois' rarer non-bitchy episodes as of later seasons, making her seem all the more sympathetic in this conflict, especially since she was sorry towards Joyce, who still held a grudge.

* DisproportionateRetribution: What Lois did to Joyce was a big deal, but Joyce's retaliation eclipsed it. Chris even gets shamed at school in the fallout by bullies. This one may be justified, as Lois, in the later episodes, has become more cruel to others, and this is just the writers giving the fans who are critical about this what they want.

* HilarityEnsues: In the real world, Joyce would have been fired immediately after airing her expose on Lois not only because the story had no news value but that the story was meant only to embarrass and humiliate someone with whom she held a grudge against. WQHG would have been exposed to a huge libel lawsuit to boot.

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: Joyce, big time. She doesn't think to confront her directly about it, and goes straight for the jugular over 20 years after the fact, damn the consequences.
