Added DiffLines:

* NobodysThatDumb: Homer and Marge sneak back into Springfield under the disguise of Mr. Burns and Smithers. When Chief Wiggums first spots them, it appears that he fell for it but it's later revealed that he had seen through their disguises and only pretended to be fooled in order to have time to rally the people to arrest Homer and Marge.
-->'''Chief Wiggum''': You really thought you could fool me with that Burns and Smithers getup. I mean, I'm not the sharpest pencil in the pencil thing, but I'm least as smart as a cat. Right, Lou?\\
'''Lou''': Uh, what breed, Chief? I mean, I saw an Abyssinian once who could change channels.\\
'''Chief Wiggum''': Eh, that is pretty smart.

* WithFriendsLikeThese: The Simpson family are spared by no one. This includes their so-called close friends, even other family members. Only Flanders tries to talk in their favor, and is silenced with a battering ram.

* DisproportionateRetribution: One of the reasons that the Simpsons are hated is because Maggie (a baby) doesn't talk.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A 500th episode milestone could've had a nicer episode, but what we have here is the entire town of Springfield giving the Simpsons a hard time once again.[[note]]In fact, the only good milestone episode was the 100th, where Skinner gets fired and Bart befriends him. The 200th, while funny, was the harbinger of JerkAss Homer. The 300th where Marge becomes a bodybuilder was criticized for Marge's change in body and personality. The 400th, where Kent Brockman gets in trouble for swearing on live TV, was too middle-of-the-road to be truly memorable -- outside of the special opening which featured the Tracy Ullman ''Simpsons'' short, "Family Portrait" and most people hated it because of the FOX News/conservative/Republican bashing[[/note]]
** DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: ...though the plot of everyone in town becoming sick of ''The Simpsons'' and banishing them, only to realize they do need them in their lives does make a good premise for a 500th episode, as it shows that as much as viewers (the people of Springfield) hate The Simpsons because of their current, mediocre-to-unwatchably bad episodes (current, destructive antics that have nearly bankrupt the town), they can't fathom what Sunday nights or the FOX network would be without it, so they choose to welcome them back. In short, the entire episode is an allegory of how viewers feel about the show (they hate that it has gone to pot, but most watch it anyway because there is some good in it and can't really fathom what life would be like if it was never there).

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: This entire dialogue
-->'''Brockman:''' All Springfielders should now move off the streets and inside their homes. Please avoid the superstitious panic that marked the recent lunar eclipse.
[a picture of Homer rioting, standing on Abraham Simpson is shown]
-->'''Homer:''' Heheh. Sorry dad. I was afraid the dragon wouldn't cough the moon back up.
-->'''Grampa:''' You idgit! The dragon always coughs the moon back up.
-->''Lisa:''' I know it's futile but I must again point out, there is no dragon.
-->'''Homer:''' Then why am I paying $800 a year in dragon insurance?
-->'''Lisa:''' Again, I maintain that money would be better spent on car insurance.
-->'''Homer:''' Lisa, everyone knows that dragons do not attack cars. Geez, pick up a book.
-->'''Lisa:''' [annoyed] I pick up books like you pick up beers!
-->'''Homer:''' Then you have a serious reading problem.
