Added DiffLines:

* RippedFromTheHeadlines: The opening scene of Mr. Burns' casino being demolished is based on the rising trend the real Las Vegas went through in the 90s where many of their resort hotels were demolished to make way for newer ones. Kent Brockman's statement on the casino being replaced by a "casino themed family hotel" comes from the criticisms several modern resorts in the 90s faced by trying to turn Vegas into a more "family-friendly" destination. Raoul Duke's complaint about there being "too many kids" in Vegas also reflects on this.

* TooSoon: As mentioned above, this episode's first re-run aired on the day of [[UsefulNotes/Columbine the Columbine massacre]]. As a result, the line about Barney Gumble's birthday being on April 20th was changed to be him having his birthday on July 15th.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the original version, when thinking of a number to bet on, Homer has the line "Marge's birthday is April 20th, same as Hitler's..." The second FOX airing of this episode actually aired on April 20, which was also the date of the Columbine High School massacre; as a result of this, the line was changed for the third FOX airing to "Marge's birthday is July 15th, same as Lassie's..." The replacement line only aired that one time (in syndication it's the original line), it is the version found on both FXX and the DVD.

* SimilarItemConfusion: When Mr. Burns' Casino is about to get demolished using bombs, one of the demolition worker overhears Bart say, "All right! Here comes the implosion" and responds to the other with "'''Im'''plosion? I thought you said--" and is interrupted when the plunger goes down. This confusion results in the casino being blasted into a huge dust cloud covering part of the town.

* MuggedForDisguise: Hilariously subverted. While being chased, Homer and Ned grab a pair of janitors and fight them offscreen in a closet. The janitors walk away unscathed, whereas Homer and Ned collapse badly bruised.

Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: PlayedForLaughs for The Comic Book Guy, who tells the car wash attendant to be careful with his "hilarious bumper stickers" that read "I Brake for [[Franchise/StarTrek Klingons]]" and "My Other Vehicle is [[Franchise/StarWars the Millennium Falcon]]", which he especially likes because he said it was given to him by a Creator/HarrisonFord look-alike...only for the attendant to vacuum them off anyway, as he doesn't understand English.

* CallBack: The Monty Burns Casino, introduced back in Season 5's [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS5E10Springfield "$pringfield"]], is demolished in this episode (and Lisa brings up the events of [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E22TrashOfTheTitans "Trash of the Titans"]] when she asks why the casino -- which hasn't seen any action since "$pringfield" -- would be brought back if nobody wants it anymore). Its absence prompts Homer to take Flanders to Vegas for fun.
