* NotHelpingYourCase: 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.



* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Not wanting anything to do with a school being open during a snow day, the teachers instead attended an "emergency caucus" (which turns out to be a day at a ski resort).

* 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".

* 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 the children had dug be ''caved in'', something in 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]].

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: Bart shouts "di di mau" at Skinner because he's a Vietnam veteran, which is a grammatically incorrect way of saying "go faster". It's actually a ShoutOut to ''Film/TheDeerHunter.''
