Added DiffLines:

* ConvictionByContradiction: Spoofed; when Homer points out that the Isotopes serve Southwestern-style hot dogs, everyone suddenly believes him. Apparently only sports arenas in the Southwest are allowed to do that.


Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: The concession stands in the stadium were already using "Albuquerque Isotopes"-branded wrappers on their hot dogs, but nobody noticed until Homer pointed it out to them.

** At home, the opposites to his kids--Bart, Lisa and Maggie all get fat from Marge getting them to eat Homer's share of the food while he's gone doing his hunger strike. Lisa points that Marge could just make ''less'' food, but Marge claims, "I don't do things that way, Lisa."

** At home, the opposites to his kids--Bart, Lisa and Maggie all get fat from Marge getting them to eat Homer's share of the food while he's gone off doing his hunger strike. When Lisa points that Marge could questions, "Couldn't you just make ''less'' food, but Mom?," Marge claims, simply replies, "I don't do things that way, Lisa."



* TheCassandra: Nobody would believe Homer's claims about the Springfield Isotopes moving to Albuquerque until he pointed out that the hotdogs that were served were topped with popular ''southwestern'' ingredients. It also didn't help the Isotopes' case that the napkins had "Albuquerque Isotopes" written on them.

** Duffman's TheDogBitesBack moment on Howard K. Duff is one to ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', with him looking between Homer and Duff, much like Vader did with Luke and the Emperor, before grabbing Duff and tossing him over the leftfield wall.

-->'''Marge''': It's been a whole week. Why are you letting my husband die? What does that have to do with baseball?\\

* BaitAndSwitchComment:
** When the Blockoland souvenir guy refuses to give Lisa the missing piece of her Eiffel Tower kit, Homer [[AngryFistShake angrily shakes his fists]] and tells him there's something to make him remember Homer. Homer then opens his hand and shows a snow globe with his name and face.
** When Homer confronts Mr. Duff over the latter's plan to move the Springfield Isotopes to Albuquerque, the latter shows a vial with what he claims to be a new addictive for Duff beer. Unlike what Homer understandably suspects, the memory-erasing drug comes from Duffman injecting him with a syringe.



-->'''Mayor of Albuquerque''': Looks like we'll have to steal some other baseball team. (to his aide) See what Dallas wants for the Cowboys.

-->'''Mayor of Albuquerque''': They'll play what I tell 'em to play. (walks to a window; menacingly) '''For I am the Mayor of Albuquerque!'''

* BuiltWithLEGO: [[{{Expy}} Or "Blocko", rather]], regarding the theme park the family visits. Incidentally, Bart ''does'' actually say the word "LEGO" on the way home.
-->'''Marge:''' Don't you mean ''Blocko'' shirt?\\
'''Bart:''' Right, right. Blocko shirt.

* LampshadeHanging: Homer saying he's on a Good Samaritan kick "this week".

* LosingHorns: Homer returns to the Albuquerque Isotopes room with a group of reporters, only to discover that Duff had already removed the incriminating evidence. The only thing in there is a beatnik playing a mocking tune.



* NotHyperbole: The salon owner wasn't kiing when he said he couldn't afford to streak Marge's hair. Homer goes over his books and finds out that the salon's profit margin is razor thin.
