Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Played with. While no one has ever cross-bred tomato and tobacco plants, since both plants are in the nightshade family, it is theoretically possible.

Added DiffLines:

* StepfordSmiler: Marge briefly invokes this when she happily declares "I'll repress the rage I'm feeling" after Homer brings the family to the decrepit farmhouse, and plasters a smile on her face that makes her look like she's on the verge of murdering everyone.
* StylisticSuck: "The Poke of Zorro" is an abomination of a movie that somehow pits Zorro against the Three Musketeers, the Man in the Iron Mask, some ninjas, and the Scarlet Pimpernel before King Arthur declares Zorro the new king of England. It also ends with an incredibly awful rap song, and the credits list mentions there was a robot version of Zorro, a magic taco voiced by James Earl Jones, and at least one time traveler.

Unlike other episodes where the previous plotline is forgotten, when the Simpsons return home, Homer finds the southerner ''still'' waiting for him and ends up dueling.
