* HollywoodRestrainingOrder: The plot of the episode relies on this. In real life, a child cannot petition a court themselves in any type of legal proceeding because they are not of age, so Lisa couldn't have taken a restraining order against Bart in the first place (which also begs the question, since status quo indicates the Simpsons are struggling financially, where did Lisa get the money to pay the legal fees to get a restraining order?". Bart could have gotten the order lifted instantly by showing evidence that Lisa was following him around to force him out of places outside of the restraining order distance (it's implied he has permanent nerve damage because of it), as it shows willful abuse of the restraining order (which is also illegal). Marge, if she really wanted to help Bart, being an adult and Bart and Lisa's legal guardian, could've gone to the court and had the restraining order overturned.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It is unclear on what happened to the Sprawl Mart manager after Homer and his fellow co-workers break free from the supermarket.
** It is quite possible that he was arrested for treating his co-workers like slaves in addition to forging a Mexican citizenship for Homer and locking them inside the building in the night.
