* AlwaysSomeoneBetterAlwaysSomeoneBetter: Salieri suffered from this constantly. Her brother Mozart had greater talent even though she was more dedicated to her craft. And after Mozart was dead, she believed she was finally the greatest composer alive...only for Beethoven to appear, causing her to finally snap.

* WholePlotReference: The plot is largely based on ''Theatre/{{Amadeus}}''. Lisa points out how Marge clearly based her story on the movie, despite its historical inaccuracy. Saying that in real life Mozart worked hard on his music and Salieri was respected composer. However, the movie never stated otherwise.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The segment, among other inaccuracies (which is normal for these stories), completely ignores the fact that Henry VIII '''did''' father a few sons (although the only legitimate one who'd actually lived long enough to see his first birthday was from his third wife). Also only two of his wives were beheaded, and only married 6 times, certainly not enough times to run out of pikes. Likewise, Elizabeth was not the daughter of Catherine of Aragon, but of Anne Boleyn. However, with the amount of people he beheaded besides his wives he certainly could've run out of pikes. Also Catherine of Aragon wasn't at Henry's death bed because she died in 11 years before him. People didn't object to Henry leaving Catherine so much for marriage sake but because the pope denied Henry's request and it was because Catherine's nephew, the holy Roman Emperor Charles V, has captured Rome and held him hostage.

* TruthInTelevision: Mozart's sister, who's real name was Maria Anna Mozart, was in fact a musical prodigy just like him. It was her that got him into music.

* GoneHorriblyRight: Salieri gave the Emperor a sleeping potion only to destroy Mozart's reputation. Her scheme ends up causing him to die young. Still, she decides to take advantage of it...until Beethoven appeared. Though given her sarcastic tone when he hires a doctor look after the ill Mozart, it may be possible that Salieri was actually [[CainAndAbel trying to kill him]].

Not helping was, when Dr. Nick introduces himself, Salieri's pupils slowly move back to Mozart with a wide grin on her face.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Subverted. Salieri only wanted to ruin Mozart's reputation, but she kills him instead. She does appear to feel very guilty about it and even [[TearsOfRemorse cries]] at his deathbed...but then the very next scene shows her trying to show the Emperor her requiem while bragging that she's the last composer alive, making you wonder if her remorse was really genuine.
