* JerkassHasAPoint: Smithers' taking Homer down in the episode's climax is motivated by petty jealousy, but Homer did commit insurance fraud, and Homer's ideas for improving the plant's productivity weren't really working--he was just in a position where he couldn't cause productivity to go down with his usual bumbling.

** Also, Homer running around town happy that he had hair was clearly based on the scene from ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'' where George Baily runs around town after getting his life back.

* AmbiguouslyGay: 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 ''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. 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.

* WrongGenreSavvy: Karl convinces Homer that it's his own competence and personality, not his hair, that makes him a shining employee. However as it turns out, the plant's community are genuinely ''that'' shallow, quickly rejecting him for his baldness and leaving him demoted back to his old job.

* 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 [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking baldness is hereditary]]. Bart seems pretty choked up about the final one.

* NamesTheSame: It's a bit odd to have a guest character named Karl, when we already have Homer's co-worker Carl (the black guy who's friends with Lenny).
* ShoutOut: The episode's title is a reference to the Biblical story of [[Literature/SamsonAndDelilah Samson and Delilah]], in which Samson lost his strength when his hair was cut. Similarly, Homer loses his success without his hair.
