* ArtisticLicenseLaw, 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 "[[FridgeLogic 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). Or 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.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint and DramaticallyMissingThePoint: The third good thing that Bart does for Lisa ([[AesopAmnesia that she can recall]]) is a straw effigy that he builds on the back yard. She thinks that it was to show that he misses being part of the family. In reality he was going to [[KillItWithFire set it on fire]] as a symbol of his spite for her (although [[SureLetsGoWithThat he's quick to say that it was out of love, when Lisa tells him she's moved by it]]).
