* WiseBeyondTheirYears:
--> '''Patty''': Where's Homer anyway? It's so typical of the big doof us to spoil it all.\\
'''Lisa''': What, Aunt Patty?\\
'''Patty''': Oh, nothing, dear. I'm just trashing your father.\\
'''Lisa''': Well, I wish you wouldn't, because aside from the fact he has the same frailties as all human beings, he's the only father I have. Therefore, he is my model of manhood, and my estimation of him will govern the prospects of my adult relationships. So I hope you bear in mind that any knock at him is a knock at me, and I'm far too young to defend myself against such onslaughts.\\
'''Patty''': ...Mm-hmm. Go watch your cartoon show, dear.

* AccidentalAesop: Many animal advocacy groups praised this episode for bringing attention to the plight of abandoned racing dogs. The writers had no idea at the time that it was such a big issue but were glad to raise awareness of it.
