* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Gino gets the same punishment as his entire family, despite being just a toddler. In reality, he would be placed into rehabilitation and foster care, or deported back to Italy, because he is too young to be tried even as a juvenile for attempted aggregative murder.



* FeudingFamilies: The Simpsons vs. the Terwilligers



* LongerThanLifeSentence: The Terwilligers receive 87 years in prison (including Gino, see ArtisticLicenseLaw), and will all die in prison. Except Bob, who escapes in his next appearance.

* ChekhovsGag: Bob's coffin has a high bump at the end of it to make room for his large feet. This joke later becomes important to the plot; Lisa figures out that something is up when she wonders why Bob's family would pay extra for a custom-made coffin to comfort a dead guy.

* DramaQueen: Dame Judith Underdunk acts like one, just moments after her husband's "fake death" IV has fully taken effect on their son's body. Justified, since she is a Shakespearian actress herself.

** Also, Bob's mother Dame Judith Underdunk is a well-known Shakespearian actress, because of whom he would have known Shakespeare too well to have misquoted him accidentally and [[ObfuscatingStupidity did this on purpose so that he would get caught]]. And Bob's father (Dr. Robert Terwilliger Sr.) administering a special intravenous drug to his son to give him [[FauxDeath the appearance of death]] for a long time period (long enough for Bob to awaken and ambush Bart in his coffin) is a nod to ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'', in which Friar Lawrence hands Juliet Capulet a special potion that allows her to feign death for 42 hours in an effort to avoid an ArrangedMarriage to Paris set up by her parents and escape with Romeo.[[note]]Unfortunately, unlike the episode, the plot [[GoneHorriblyRight goes horribly right]] for Romeo to kill himself on hearing of her "death" and for Juliet to wake up and then kill herself.[[/note]]
