* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: At the end of the final segment, when Lisa realises what Bart has been doing with the stopwatch, she asks, "Why can't I tinker with the fabric of existence?" Homer has Bart give her the stopwatch, and she notices a red button on it. She presses it to see what it does, only for the rest of the family's bodies to split into rockets. She ends up changing them multiple times, trying to correct her error.



* LaserGuidedKarma: Happened instantaneously to Nelson, who Bart and Milhouse bring into the scene to laugh at a naked Homer, only for ''his'' clothes to disappear before he can finish his catchphrase.

* RecycledScript: As mentioned above, the first story was done before on the ''Family Guy'' episode "Death is a Bitch" (where Peter writes on his hospital bill that he's dead to get out of paying for it, and the Grim Reaper forces Peter to take his job after Death breaks his ankle).
** HilariousinHindsight: Because of this, Homer's cameo in the Family Guy episode "Ratings Guy" where Peter tells him "Looks like this is one we beat you to!" more hilarious.
