* {{Jerkass}}: Surprisingly, Marge is an even bigger jerkass in this episode then Homer. He ends up getting a tennis court in the backyard and has fun with it and being a comedian and Marge gets embarassed and outright tells him to stop having fun and play seriously.
** Plus once Homer signs them up for a tournament to see how they do, she immediately ditches him for Bart and barely expresses any remorse throughout the entire episode.

* ArtShift: Like season seven's "Radioactive Man," this episode used digital ink and paint rather than traditional cel animation in the days before cel animation would fall out of fashion and digital ink and paint would be a thing. And much like "Radioactive Man," fans responded unfavorably to the change.
