* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Thanks to Abe mistaking the commissioner of pro football for a burglar and holding him hostage, Springfield loses out on their football team.
** Of course, the town bears as much fault in this, since (a) the town changed the names to ALL the town's streets and (b) did not arrange to either meet the commissioner or tell him of the changes.

* SuicideIsShameful: When Marge hears that Grampa wanted to be euthanized, she is quite shocked and says that suicide is a sin.

* AnimalWrongsGroup: Lisa gets irked with the whole "recycle the Springfield Meltdowns field and turn it into a bull-fighting arena" scheme and convinces Grandpa to release the bulls. The "wrongs" part is that they both decided to just allow the bulls to rampage through Springfield, causing '''massive''' collateral damage and potential fatalities while they watched from a balloon.



* ItCanThink: Used as the final gag: Grandpa and Lisa are safe from the bulls' rampage because they are on a balloon... and then the bulls tie balloons to themselves and fly up to where they are to get ''them'' as well.
* MistakenForAfterlife: After the Springfield Police prevented the doctor from assisting Grandpa's suicide (while Grandpa was passed out), Grandpa wakes up believing he's in Heaven (the Chaplin impersonator reinforces this)... and then he arrives to the Simpsons home, where he believes for a moment that either Homer or Bart went on a murder-suicide spree and killed the whole family.

* ShoutOut:
** The [=DiePod=]. With one setting labeled as "Music/MegaDeth". It's not clearly defined whether it's an actual setting on the suicide machine, or the thing has ''actual'' Megadeth music on it.
** The suicide room sequence resembles Sol's assisted suicide on ''Film/SoylentGreen''.
