* WeCouldHaveAvoidedAllThis: While Bart and Lisa acted like jerks, it all started because Marge let her guard down. By the time the kids called her, she had become too carefree (and tipsy) to properly maintain the lie, and couldn't be bothered to ask herself why the kids sounded so worried.

* BigNo: From Homer, when Bart arranges for him to get a low fat meal on the flight to Atlantic City.



* ContrivedCoincidence: Bart and Lisa wouldn't have suspected Homer and Marge had sneaked away if they hadn't seen a news report of a tornado destroying the hotel they were supposed to be staying at.
** For that matter, the fact that if Homer and Marge hadn't decided to be spontaneous, the tornado ''would've'' killed them.



** Apparently, trying to get into the Gold Medallion Club without the proper membership merits being shot.
* HopeSpot: When the tornado demolishes the Dayton Arms Hotel, Bart says that Homer and Marge could be in the basement...only for the tornado to come back and smash its way through the hotel's foundation before moving on. Subverted that Homer and Marge were in Miami instead of Ohio.
