* ItsAllAboutMe: Homer before he decides to be a better person. He forgets he's Lenny's secret Santa, annoying both him and Carl. Carl in particularly calls Homer the most selfish man he knows. Homer says that Mr Burns is more selfish than him, leading straight into the RightBehindMe example below. Then, he buys ''keyrings'' for his family's presents and spends almost everything else on the Personalized Talking Astrolabe, meaning the only Christmas tree they can afford is so dry bursts into flames when Homer rubs it. Obviously, Marge and the kids are ''not'' happy when they find out.

* CallingTheOldManOut: When the family find out Homer blew their money on the Astrolabe, he tries to say that if he's happy, he's "less abusive" to them. Lisa shoots him down with one sentence, without even needing to raise her voice: "No, Dad. This time, you were just plain selfish."

* NiceGuy: Homer tries very hard to be one of these after his HeelRealization. He does this by donating his old clothes to hobos, giving Lenny a photo cube to make up for being a bad secret Santa to him earlier in the episode, offers Marge the last pork chop (causing her to break down in [[InelegantBlubbering tears of joy]]), orders Burns to donate to the church collection plate, and builds an ice rink in the back yard. Marge is very happy by Homer's newfound unselfishness, and Gil even calls him "the nicest man in town", right in front of Ned Flanders.

* InstantSedation: While Homer is stealing Christmas, he is spotted by baby Gerald (a la Cindy Lou Who), so he knocks him (and his teddy bear) out with a chloroform rag.
