* FMinusMinus: Inverted Trope. Lisa's test gets an "A-Triple-Plus" (it would have been quadruple, but one of the "plusses" was a stain of Drambuie that Miss Hoover had while grading papers), and with it comes a lot of attention that she ''absolutely detests''.

to:

* FiveSecondForeshadowing: After Lisa seemingly reveals to Comptroller Atkins that she cheated to get her A+++, Marge commends her for getting the highest grade in the class (which she pointedly repeats after Lisa tries to correct her). Cue the reveal that Lisa was tricked into ''thinking'' he revealed this to Comptroller Atkins, and that the ceremony she had attended was fake (as to get her away from the school before the ''real'' Comptroller Atkins showed up).

Added DiffLines:

** In this same vein, Bart's F would mean he had to repeat the fourth grade, while Lisa's A+++ meant the school would be (unjustly) using it for grant money.

Added DiffLines:

* SpiritualAntithesis: To "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E1BartGetsAnF Bart Gets an F]]". That episode saw Bart trying desperately to avoid getting an F on an upcoming test by intense studying. This sees Lisa trying desperately to avoid getting an F on a test she did not study for by cheating.

* ChekhovsGag: The decoy of himself Bart made in shop really only serves to set up his making the fake Lisa puppet to fool Comptroller Atkins.

* GenreSavvy: Skinner and Chalmers knew that Lisa would admit to her cheating, so they deliberately held a fake ceremony with a fake Comptroller (Otto in a latex mask) where Lisa would confess, and then after she leaves, they hold the real ceremony where they get the money for the school from the real Comptroller.

* HonorBeforeReason: Despite the fact that it would benefit everyone in school, Lisa intends to try and stop it from happening just because she feels bad about cheating when it was her own fault to begin with.

* MedalOfDishonor: The "accidental" kind. As mentioned on HonorBeforeReason, Lisa would prefer to throw the school's welfare to the wolves before accepting the reward (and the extra funding money that comes with it, which the school direly needs ''and they have already used some of to buy stuff'').

* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Superintendent Chalmers claims that Springfield Elementary School used to be considered the most dilapidated in Missouri until they brought it to Springfield. Lisa's and Skinner's looks of surprise when Chalmers mentions "Missouri" suggests that Springfield isn't there.
