* StrawLoser: Kirk's traits as one of these actually become an important plot point: he's so flat broke that he's only able to buy an incredibly crappy brand of popcorn (that is most "made" out of unsanitary stuff like ''loose human teeth'') that Wiggum is capable of recognizing by sound on the recording Bart's "demand" call (because he's the only other person in Springfield that purchases that brand). As well, Kirk's pad is so shitty that living in prison gen-pop is an actual ''improvement'' (plus he gets three free meals and ladies that love dangerous convicts want to meet him), which makes him quite willing to help maintain the lie.

* HonorBeforeReason: Lisa wishes to showcase the truth about Bart's "kidnapping" even if it means destroying Wiggum's promotion, kick Kirk back out to the streets to suffer his StrawLoser life and put everybody else in a legal nightmare. It says quite a lot that Skinner is the only person who wants to help her, and it's solely for the potential pleasure of seeing Bart suffer.



* SnowballLie: Bart lying about being kidnapped by Milhouse's father: it makes Chief Wiggum rise to Commissioner, Milhouse's father becomes popular with the ladies (while at prison) and receives more meals a day, and Bart becomes friends with Alcatraz.

* FieryCoverup:
--> '''Lisa''': A shirt from that rap concert. Bart must've gone to the show. But that means Bart was never kidnapped!\\
'''Homer''': Lisa, I'm very glad you brought me this. I'll see that it gets to the proper authorities. ''(throws it in the fireplace)''\\
'''Lisa''': Dad! Why did you do that?\\
'''Homer''': Hollywood producers have paid me a fortune, which I've already lost, for the rights to Bart's story. So I have to destroy anything that proves that story's not true. ''(takes off his shirt and throws it in the fireplace)''\\
'''Lisa''': Why did you burn up your shirt?\\
'''Homer''': ''What'' shirt? I don't see any shirt. Burn the truth! Burn the truth!
