* AcquittedTooLate: Non-lethal version. Everyone found out that Homer didn't imagine Ray ''after'' his electroshock treatment was complete. Homer was righteously upset about [[AllForNothing going through all that pain and suffering for no reason]] and forced Dr Hibbert to finish the repairs to the roof as compensation.

* KarmaHoudini: After learning that he gave Homer weeks of electroshock for nothing, Dr. Hibbert tried to invoke this by saying that Marge already agreed not to sue him when he validated her parking. When Marge pointed out that he hadn't punched a hole in her parking slip, he immediately did so. Fortunately, Homer didn't let him get away.

* ElectricTorture: This was Homer's treatment for weeks after everyone was sure that he imagined Ray. To make it worse, Dr. Hibbert gave him jolts when he learned Homer's sense of humor wasn't affected and when he mistakenly believed RobinHood was real. [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment When Homer found out that it was all unnecessary however]].
* ISeeThemToo: After the majority of the episode where everyone thought he was made up, Ray is finally seen by those who disbelieved Homer. Of course, [[FridgeLogic it does raise the question about why he was at the psychiatric hospital where they saw him]].
