* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: This was the first episode to depict one of the root causes of Bart's perennially poor scholastic habits that being his inability to concentrate or prioritize his studies over his free time, which are wasted on video games, gorilla movies and just plain goofing off. Even when given an ultimatum to pass a final test or be retained to fourth grade, and given an extra day to study due to a sudden snowstorm, his attention span is shorter than that of a gnat.

He has to resort to constantly slapping himself during his studying just to try and keep focus.

* SelfHarm: Bart continuously slaps himself so he can pay attention to studying, which continues into a MatchCut where he's still slapping himself in class.

(Could it be Nelson saw him doing this, and that's how he got his fondness for [[RunningGag taunting his victims about how they are "hitting themselves"?)]]

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Now honestly, when has Bart ever cared about his grades?
** To be fair, he hadn't been in danger of having to repeat the fourth grade before.

* BreakTheHaughty: Bart crying over his F. Then again, he didn't exactly do anything particularly nasty, heinous, or mischievious to anybody in this episode, so it seems more like a case of BreakTheCutie.

** Edna trying to comfort Bart when the latter cried after seeing he really worked hard on trying to pass. [[spoiler: She does end up passing him when he mentions something he did pay attention to.]]

* ArtEvolution: The artwork and animation quality is much better-looking here than in season one, but it would take at least another season before it really improves.
