* HaveAGayOldTime: Martin says that the class banding together will make them form a "mighty faggot", then a dictionary definition appears at the bottom of the screen to show that it's not the anti-gay slur (though the "bundle of sticks" definition of "faggot" does have a connection with the derogatory term for a homosexual, as there was a time in history where homosexuals were burned at the stake, along with women who were accused of witchcraft -- and sometimes, the homosexual men were used as kindling for the women who ended up burned for witchcraft, hence the term "flaming faggot").

* BaitAndSwitch: Skinner informs Bart that Nelson never woke up... because he never passed out.
** Earlier, it looks like Nelson only dragged Bart into the cave to pummel him. Instead, he took him there [[WhatTheHellHero to chew him out]].
* CrossOver: In-universe, Homer's [[FixFic revised ending]] to ''Angelica Button and The Dragon King's Trundle Bed'' involves a trip to "Franchise/StarWars Land".



* FixFic: After Homer reads ahead in ''Angelica Button and The Dragon King's Trundle Bed'' (and learns that Greystache is killed by Malicious Krubb after saving Angelica), when he finds himself reading that very same chapter to Lisa, he decides to reinvent the ending: Greystache uses his "mustache power" to defeat Malicious Krubb, Angelica escapes from the trap "somehow", and the two ride off in his sports car. After Homer leaves, Lisa decides to look at the chapter herself.
-->'''Lisa''': Eh... dad's version is better.
** HandWave: "I somehow escaped from the hourglass!"



--> '''Skinner''': Shut up! I'm just giving him CPR. ''The kiss of life''.

At school, Nelson tells his classmates to come to his upcoming birthday party or he will beat them up. Bart is tired of being bullied by Nelson and ralies the class to not show up to humiliate Nelson. When Marge hears about it, she scolds Bart for being mean and forces him to go to Nelson's party. Bart is afraid to go fearing Nelson's wrath and thinks the party will be of poor quality, but the party turns out to be better than he expected, with a bouncy house and an appearance by Spider-Man. He and Nelson end up having a good time and the two become friends, which Bart uses to his advantage with Nelson beating up everyone who messes with him. However, Bart misses spending time with Milhouse and the two decide to fly kites together. Nelson sees it and is mad at Bart. Eventually, he decides to forgive Bart, but he instead calls Nelson an obsessed psycho. While at a field trip to the tidepools, Nelson confronts Bart inside a cave and calls him a bad friend, but the tide comes in and he saves Bart from drowning (only because they were field trip buddies). The story ends with Bart remembering the good times he had with Nelson.

Meanwhile, Homer reads Lisa an installment of the fantasy book series ''Angelica Button'' and soon becomes attached to it. Homer wants to know what happens next and breaks his promise about reading ahead, discovering that the wizard character gets killed in a magic duel. Not wanting Lisa to be sad at the character dying, he tells his own version of the ending where the wizard wins the battle. When he leaves, Lisa reads the real ending, but decides Homer's ending was better. The credits show Homer still mourning over the death.
