* CompressedVice: Homer's obsession with fishing pretty much begins and ends in this episode. * EasilyForgiven: Marge lets Homer off the hook shockingly fast at the end. All he does is throw back the fish he caught, which really doesn't address any of the things she was mad at him for, but she immediately accepts this as good enough.

Added DiffLines:
* ShroudedInMyth: Homer becomes a local legend for almost catching General Sherman, and starts getting this treatment. * SignatureLaugh: Arguably the first usage of Nelson's iconic "ha ha!", though it's a little bit different here. * WoundedGazelleGambit: Grampa finally gets the kids to behave and clean up their mess by pretending to cry so that they'll feel sorry for him.
