* WhoWritesThisCrap: Homer doesn't pay the sugar dealer because he claims it wasn't part of the deal. The guy double checks the contract, finds out it really wasn't, and demands to know which of his subordinates actually wrote it.

* BitingTheHandHumor: While burning most of the sugary sweets and food products in town, the police throw a pile of Butterfingers into the flames. The fire rejects the Butterfingers, causing Chief Wiggum to comment that the fire "doesn't even want them". This gag cost the Simpsons their contract with Butterfingers and has been cut from all reruns (including syndication), though the season 13 DVD box set version has the scene intact and Butterfingers' contract with the Simpsons franchise has been renewed in 2013.
** In Brazil, the gag isn't excluded from the reruns.
