* GoneHorriblyRight: Bart cheating leads him not only to avoid botching the exam but get labelled a genius and sent to a gifted school where he ends up feeling miserable and out of place. He attempts to shrewdly return to his old school by disguising his intentions as a study of less intelligent kids, only for Dr Pryor to put him at work with a complex proposal in response. Bart very quickly decides it isn't worth it and confesses the whole thing.

Added DiffLines:

* BitchInSheepsClothing:
** Martin politely asks Mrs Krabappel if he can study outside after finishing the exam, primarily so he can pull rude faces at Bart from the window.
** Similarly the students of the gifted school act polite and studious in class, only to condescend and play pranks on Bart during breaks.


Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Skinner and Lisa are the only ones suspicious of Bart's test results. Skinner even advises having Bart retake the exam, but when Pryor insists on moving him to a new school, he excitedly relents.
