* GrimReaper: Appears in Homer's first dream. When the family goes over the side of the mountain, the Reaper joins them and is screaming alongside them before remembering ''he'' can't die... and then turns around and sees a gigantic, beastial reaper with wings flying beside him and roaring like a dinosaur. The first reaper is understandably scared shitless.

* BaitAndSwitchComment: Once atonement for how Homer screwed his coworkers didn't stop him from wetting his bed, he drew a knife and said it was time for drastic measures. He cut open the plastic wrapping of the yellow pages. (Or, as it's known in-universe, the internet for old people)

After getting his coworkers in trouble for stealing office supplies, Homer begins wetting the bed. Thinking this is LaserGuidedKarma for what he did, he tries to atone -- only to continue peeing in his sleep. With the help of Professor Frink, the Simpsons go on an ''Inception''-style journey to Homer's dreams to find out why he's been wetting the bed.
