* 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'').

Lisa's and Skinner's looks of surprise when Chalmers mentions "Missouri" suggests that Springfield isn't there. Chalmers seals it by explaining that the school was moved brick by brick from its original location in Missouri and placed on Springfield.

Added DiffLines:

* ExplainExplainOhCrap: At the end, Bart asks what smells so good, after Homer says he put Pinchy in a hot bath to clean him up. Homer is in the middle of asking the same thing, then realises to his horror that in giving Pinchy a hot bath, he has accidentally killed him.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Homer has one when he realises that he has accidentally killed Pinchy by giving him a hot bath. The last scene has him sobbing over Pinchy while eating him.


Added DiffLines:

* SayMyName: Homer during his ExplainExplainOhCrap moment, saying "Pinchy?" three times, starting quietly, then rising in volume each time and culminating in a scream of "PINCHY!" when he realises he has accidentally boiled Pinchy in the bath.

* TheAllegedComputer: The Coleco computer that Gil is selling not only looks ''and'' acts like a mid-80s 8-bit in an episode on the precipice of the millenium, and Gil unwillingly ends up mentioning that the computers of this brand rust.

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Lisa's first time playing the video game has her quitting because ''Ninja Koalas'' kill her character.



* OutOfCharacterMoment: While it makes sense that Lisa would feel desperate enough to cheat if she didn't know the answers on a test, it does seem unlikely that Lisa wouldn't have already read ''The Wind in the Willows'' since she's the kind of person who would read books like that for fun.
** She also complained against Homer sparing Pinchy the lobster, despite being a vegetarian and a fierce animal lover. Homer even calls her out on it.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Homer is somehow able to grow a lobster to full size in a small fish tank that's just had some table salt added to it, which wouldn't be sufficient for a lobster to survive in. Pinchy also acts like a puppy and tends to squeak and huddle whenever frightened, which real lobsters can't and don't do.
