* 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.

After Marge gets mugged by a hobo outside of the Kwik-E-Mart's bathroom, she turns into a recluse afraid to even leave her own basement. Eventually, she becomes bored, and starts turning to weight lifting (from some weights Homer bought at Rainier Wolfcastle's bankruptcy sale) to pass the time. After gaining the courage to go outside, and beating up the hobo who mugged her, she becomes a bodybuilder. Unfortunately, she gets addicted to steroids along the way and becomes a muscle-bound bully.
