* ArtisticLicense: The child curfew law that Chief Wiggum enforces is nowhere close to how most cities enforce similar child curfew laws. For starters, these laws usually state when a child can't be out at night without adult supervision (as kids do tend to be out late to attend sporting events, movie screenings, and other activities), not when a kid must be at home. Second, most cities' curfew time is usually a set time (i.e. 9:00PM), not as soon as the sun sets (and even if the time based on when the sun sets, the curfew starts at least ''an hour after'' this).

* KarmaHoudini: Although everyone in town who is not elderly end up being smacked with a curfew (which is more of a blanket punishment), Homer and his idiotic gang are never directly punished or even called out on their drunken behavior which set all the episode's events in motion. Nobody even finds out that they were responsible.
Until ''way'' later, in "At Long Last Leaves" (through only Homer was discovered for being responsible and Lenny, Carl and Barney are still unpunished).

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Milhouse's suggestion to put the adults' secrets online wouldn't seem silly or impossible today, thanks to social media websites, blogs, and domains where people can make and maintain their own websites.

* LaserGuidedKarma: The adults made an unfair curfew for children but got the same fate in the end by the seniors. Most of the adults lyrics do happen to them in future episodes. Homer sang about how his children were born by accident because Marge forgot her pill (His own father calls him an accident which completely destroyed his relationship with him). Krusty sung negatively about the kids before trying to reassure them to stay in the fan club (Krusty's relationship with his father is far from good due to him choosing to be clown instead of following Jewish tradition).

** The adults reveled in the curfew more than any adult ever should. Even Marge who is one of the nicer Simpsons made a few jokes. When the kids get even, [[NeverMyFault the adults act as if they did nothing wrong and that the kids are to blame.]] Even the song is needlessly cruel with Homer singing that Bart and Lisa were accidents because Marge forgot her pill ([[WhatTheHellHero Marge doesn't even shout at him or correct him she just murmurs and gives a guilty or embarrassed smile to the other adults which is out of character as she will tear the world to shreds if her children are harmed in some way either emotionally or physically)]] while Moe sang about how the all kids should be "drowned like cats".

* FascistsBedTime: The children are place under a curfew because Wiggum automatically assumes they were responsible for the school's vandalism. Later on, the adults get slapped with one by the seniors.

* TemptingFate: During the first time the kids started exposing adults' secrets, they started with Homer. When Homer expressed relief that at least they'd already done him, they announced there'd be more about him. Later on, people start asking what the senior citizens will do if their demands aren't met. The next scene features a curfew for people under 60.
