* DesignatedHero: Briefly before he ran away everyone praised homer for how brave he was for giving his father his kidney seemingly forgetting that it was his fault that his father needed a new kidney in the first place which was made abundantly clear.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Frenchman may have stolen his accordion (actually a concertina) from a blind monkey, but he (and the other passengers on the ''Ship of Lost Souls'') would never dream of leaving their fathers to die in the hospital after promising them a kidney.

** JerkassHasAPoint: His fears were pivoted by the fact Dr. Hibbert (and everyone else) outright lied to him about the dangers of the operation so he'd agree. When they can't make him donate willingly, Hibbert outright steals his kidney while he's unconscious. While it's {{Dirty Coward}}ice at its finest, would you trust your body in the hands of a quack that deceives and outright mutilates you without your consent?

* NoodleIncident: A whole Ship of Lost Souls full of them, barring the French man with the accordion (see EvenEvilHasStandards above) and the woman who robbed a bank with a frozen loaf of bread.
** The Creator/PeterLorre lookalike mentioned that he did something that got him ban from a car wash, though we never find out what it was.

* RightForTheWrongReasons: Homer about the bartender having a metal ass. Homer's reason to believe the bartender to have that kind of ass is the notion that the bartender is a robot. The bartender is actually a human who "got this metal ass in 'Nam".

* CluelessAesop: The episode doesnít really seem to have a point. The aesope isnít redemption because of the fact that Homer runs away in the end. Itís not being PlayedForLaughs because of the serious way Abeís illness is being depicted and they make it clear that Homer left his father to die. And the situation isnít UpToEleven so it canít be BlackComedy. It seems to only point of the episode is to depict Homer as a Jerkass.

* AllPartOfTheShow: One of the actors at the attraction is a sickly alcoholic who asks for help and then falls in a tub and presumably ''drowns''. All of the tourists (save for Lisa) do in response to this is [[NoSympathy laugh at him and snap pictures.]] Even Bart replied back to his sister when she asked if someone should help him that the guy knew what he was doing.



* ArtisticLicenseBiology: A "kidney blowout" due to holding in urine for a long time is physically and medically impossible, as the kidneys (much like the liver) is just a filter that makes body waste. If any organ in the urinary tract was going to suffer from having too much urine in it, it would be the bladder (and he would have pissed himself before dying of sepsis). And if Grampa's urinary system was compromised and Homer didn't want to donate a kidney, couldn't they have put Grampa on dialysis until a donor could be found? You know "urine" trouble when SethMacFarlane can realistically portray the trials and tribulations of dealing with kidney failure (as seen in "[[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy New Kidney in Town]]" and "[[WesternAnimation/AmericanDad The Kidney Stays in the Picture]]".

* DirtyOldMan: Played with by Grandpa. While in the saloon and after one of the robotic can-can dancers' [[ItMakesSenseInContext plastic butt flies off and lands next to him]], he pinches it and calls it "sweet cheeks", only for a plastic hand come flying by and slapping him across the face.



** Even Dr. Hibbert, who usually laughs at inappropriate moments, is upset by the turn of events. He does laugh, but there's no humor in it and no joy in his expression.



--> '''Bartender:''' First of all, I'm not a robot. And second, I got this metal ass in 'Nam, defending this country for lazy jerks like you.

* WantedPoster: Bart gives Marge a flyer of Homer, who is apparently wanted for indecent exposure in the [[NoodleIncident short time he and the family are at the spot.]] While Marge initially believes that it was just pretend, Bart then points out [[OhCrap that actual posters are being distributed of Homer.]]
