* InstantlyProvenWrong: When Bart moans that everyone is off except the students of Springfield Elementary, Marge denies that, saying that adults still have to go to work...only for Homer to come happily saying that he doesn't have to go to the power plant thanks to the snow.

* OhCrap[=/=]RuleOfThree: The kids shouted the first time when a snow storm got them stuck inside school, the second when they realized it'd make them miss Christmas, and the last and loudest when Principal Skinner announced his lame Christmas movie could be watched again.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Principal Skinner. First, he keeps Springfield Elementary open despite every other school closing and all the teachers going on a ski trip, resulting in them being snowed in. Then, in his efforts to prevent anyone from ending up like his platoon in 'Nam, refused to let anyone leave even when they had the proper means to, becoming tyrannical. This reached its peak when actually demanded that the escape tunnel Bart had dug be ''caved in'', something even Willie felt was unnecessary. [[LaserGuidedKarma This act ended up biting him in the butt when he got trapped in the collapsing tunnel and as a result, lost control of the school]].

Added DiffLines:

* BeyondTheImpossible: Although you won't see it on the TV version of the episode, after Milhouse tears up and crumples Lisa's slightly unflattery permanent record, it not only reassembles and ''un''crumples itself, the page then reasserts itself within the permanent record book, the book closes on its own, and then ''the drawer its in'' closes on its own.


Added DiffLines:

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: After Chalmers arrives at the end, demanding an explanation for what happened at the school, Bart says that there ''is'' an explanation... whereupon Chalmers leaves, since "[he's] happy" that at least ''an'' explanation exists.

Added DiffLines:

* RageBreakingPoint: Skinner thwarting Bart's escape attempt and destroying his escape tunnel winds up being the straw that breaks the students' back. However, it's downplayed in that, once it's clear he's trapped, Bart rallies the students into taking over the school.
** However, it's played straight when Willie refuses to take any more abuse from Skinner after protesting destroying Bart's escape tunnel.

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfCharacterMoment: When kids are burning books, Lisa is with them which is confusing considering that Lisa promotes education and would of at least tried to sway them from burning certain books.

Added DiffLines:

* ScreamDiscretionShot: The kids scream twice when they realize that A) the school has been showed in, and B) they're gonna miss Christmas. Then Skinner comes out of the classroom to announce that he has fixed his crappy Christmas movie DVD. Cue an outside shot of the school as the kids scream loudly.

* BaitAndSwitch: Principal Skinner told the students they'd watch a story about [[HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas a grinchy creature that almost stole Christmas]]. Then he showed "The Christmas that Almost Wasn't but Then Was."

* WritingLines: Bart forces Skinner to write, "I ain't not a dorkus" (which Skinner calls "a grammatical nightmare"). Bart also shows [[AssholeVictim little sympathy to Skinner's complaints about a cramp in his wrist]], demonstrating that all his years of doing it have left Bart with a wrist that "sounds like a cement mixer".
