Added DiffLines:

* CrazyJealousGuy: Smithers has been repeatedly shown to have an almost psychological need to serve Burns, in addition to being sexually attracted to him. These both likely factor into Smithers' loathing for Homer when the latter earns Burns' favor.


Added DiffLines:

** Also Smithers to Burns. Smithers is ''really'' upset when Burns starts favoring Homer over him, despite Homer not really being an impressive employee.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Marge dislikes the idea of Homer working with pretty women, and suggests him to hire Karl. He kisses Homer later, and judging from Homer's comments, he has some sort of a man-crush on Karl too.

* StraightGay: Karl (and his appearance is not only the first time a celebrity [Harvey Fierstein voices Karl] has done voicework on ''TheSimpsons'', but the first time an animated series depicts a character established to be a homosexual kissing another man, though ''WesternAnimation/MissionHill'' would later go down in animation history as the first animated show to show an established gay male couple kissing). And unlike how Homer acted in "Homer's Phobia," he doesn't even notice or care that his secretary Karl is gay, but he does find it odd that Karl kissed him.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgottenPhlebotinum: Dimoxinil is never seen or mentioned again in any future episodes, despite being a miracle drug that immediately cures baldness. You would think a product like that would get a lot more staying power, regardless of its price tag.

And unlike how Homer acted in "Homer's Phobia," he doesn't even notice or care that his secretary Karl is gay, but he does find it odd that Karl kissed him. The difference is that Marge wasn't around to tell Homer about Karl's sexual orientation and these were the early episodes where Homer wasn't very bright, whether intellectually or socially.

* WhatTheHellHero: After Bart destroys his one bottle of Dimoxinil, Homer decides not to kill him, but to tell him he's ruined his father, crippled his family, and that [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking baldness is hereditary]]. Bart seems pretty choked up about the final one.[note]Though it's actually inherited from the mother's side.[/note]

* AbsurdlyDedicatedWorker: "Simpson and Delilah", Homer uses a hair grower to get his hair back and is promoted and gets an assistant, Karl, who then takes the blame for something Homer did, gets fired, and still writes Homer's speech for him even after having been fired. The assistant is absurdly faithful to Homer.
