* AccidentalMisnaming: The Navitron Autodrive system calls Homer Red when Homer is driving towards the convoy, saying it can't let him do it because the risk is unacceptable. Justified because it's Red truck.

Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap:
** The cow Mr Burns wants a glass of milk from gets one when it's about to be hit with a stun gun.
** Bart when the convoy closes in on him and Homer and one of the trucks rams them from behind.
** Homer and Bart when they see the line of trucks in front of them, blocking their path.
** Homer when the Autodrive system [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere ejects itself from the truck]] as Homer is driving towards the aforementioned line of trucks.


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: One of the truckers tries to stab out the truck's wheels with a knife while the truck is driving. The wheel remains intact and the trucker loses his knife.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: The Navitron Autodrive system decides Homer's risk of driving straight at the line of trucks is unacceptable and ejects itself from the truck. Cue an OhCrap from Homer, who then somehow manages to flip the truck over the other trucks, land on the other side, and carry right on going.

Added DiffLines:

* ZippingUpTheBodybag: The coroners zip up the body bag on Red. They give an extra one to Marge just in case, because Homer doesn't look so good either.

* FridgeLogic: When Homer and Bart are fishing, Bart tells Homer they have to cover 2,200 miles to Atlanta, Georgia, in 10 hours. How is it possible in a semi-truck (that's also loaded, not empty), we'll never know. The semi-trucks' maximum speeds are generally about 100 mph, and then there are speed limits, which vary state to state, from 65 to 80 mph. Also, if Atlanta was 2,200 miles away from their location, they must have still been somewhere in the West Coast or Rockies, for Atlanta is just 2,200 miles from Los Angeles, California; and the only places more further from Atlanta are in Northern California, Oregon and Washington. Also, previously, when they set off on the road, Bart mentions that they'd have to make it to Atlanta in three days. While we don't know where the fictional Springfield is, but if we assume it's based on Matt Groening's hometown of Portland, Oregon, which is between 2,600-2,700 miles from Atlanta - which can be driven in three days with sleeping breaks, then it would mean that so far, Homer and Bart had only driven for about 400-500 miles.



* UnusualEuphemism: The trucker who tells homer about the auto-driver say it lets you "sit back and feel your ass grow."

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: The doorbell Marge and Lisa buy plays the melody from "(They Long To Be) Close To You)" by The Carpenters, which is confirmed to be Homer and Marge's wedding song.


Added DiffLines:

* SeriousBusiness: A doorbell is not a toy. It only gets rang when someone comes to ring it. Lisa learns this the hard way.
