Added DiffLines:

* StockFootage: The entire "Eye on Springfield" intro is reused from the episode "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS3E10FlamingMoes Flaming Moe's]]". Needless to say, to go from Season 3 animation to Season 14 animation is jarring.

* BrokeTheRatingScale: During an attempt by the family to help Marge overcome her agoraphobia, she is told to describe her anxiety level using a number from one to ten. However, while Homer attempts to get rid of a beehive, Marge says "12," then "15". When the swarm of bees attack the family, Marge screams, "703!"



* FromBadToWorse: The family attempts to simulate the Kwik-E-Mart experience at home to ease Marge back into going outside, but it ends up making her agoraphobia even worse than before, driving her into the basement.



* {{Hypocrite}}: [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] when Marge initially refuses to take drugs due to her noting that it'd make a hypocrite out of her anti-drug bumper sticker-laden tail gate. She ends up taking the drugs anyway after succumbing to peer pressure from Ruth.

** Marge beating up the mugger is nearly a shot-for-shot recreation from the scene in ''TheGodfather'' in which Sonny beats up his sister's abusive husband.
