* BaitAndSwitch: Homer tempts Barney, a recovering alcoholic, with some beer, saying one drink won't hurt. This sequence is deliberately set up to show Barney go on a drunken bender, not unlike what happened in "Deep Space Homer". When Barney finally drinks the beer... nothing happens.
-->'''Barney:''' Oh... hey, you're right. I was afraid it would start me drinking again, but it didn't.\\
'''Homer:''' Mm-hmm.



-->'''Lenny:''' (''holding rifle'') Bang, bang!
-->'''Carl:''' (''holding pistols'') Pow, pow!

* GeniusBonus: Played with, Homer has a dream where he watches Apu in an India like setting with the Squishee Lady. Apu tells him in annoyance "Avert your eyes eunuch." This causes Homer to scream himself awake, but then [[LateToThePunchline looks up the dictionary to find the definition of Eunuch, which causes him to scream loud enough]] to wake Marge. Anyone who knows what a eunuch is, would understand why [[ShareTheMalePain he screamed.]]

--> '''Krusty''': ''(downbeat)'' That's sad. All those kids.\\
'''Homer''': I think he's building to something.
* OverlyLongGag: Homer backing away after seeing Apu and the Squishee lady lasts for nearly a full minute, with him walking all the way from the Kwik-E-Mart to home, then continuing after he falls asleep. ''Then'' it continues at the end of the episode after he sees Apu with Manjula.
