* CallBack and FunnyBackgroundEvent: While Principal Skinner is talking about how much in love he is with Patty, we see the school plunging into chaos.

* MayDecemberRomance: Played with. At first Patty is reluctant as normal and even goes as far as using martial arts on him to keep Skinner's romantic advances at bay. However she warms up to Skinner and even kisses him at least once onscreen. However due to her loyalty and protectiveness to her sister and later on in the series, her lesbianism, it stops.

* {{Jerkass}}: Homer. Even after goofing up with introducing Patty to Skinner instead of Selma, not only does he show no regret/remorse for it, [[KickTheDog but he continues to badmouth her]] and telling Marge, who's genuinely concerned about her, that she's a "heifer" amongst other things and introduces her to one of the worst choices for a boyfriend, his drunken best friend Barney[[note]]Albeit this was years before his CharacterDevelopment into something beyond just an alcoholic.[[/note]] Also, even if Selma was/is a jerk to Homer, back then, she was the more sympathetic of the two sisters and certainly was in this episode and actually more friendlier towards Homer than Patty ever was.
