** This is how Homer is treated throughout the rest of the series as he suffers plenty more of these type of injuries.

A night at a monster truck rally featuring daredevil Lance Murdock prompts Bart to do daredevil tricks on his skateboard and set his sights on jumping The Springfield Gorge.

to:

A night at The Simpsons family end up attending a monster truck rally featuring one night, which features a performance by renowned daredevil Lance Murdock prompts Murdock. Despite Murdock's stunt going hideously wrong, landing him in hospital, Bart declares the man his new hero, and aspires to do be a daredevil tricks on himself. Bart isn't put off when he's injured during his first attempt, even when he's introduced to a ward of children who have been left badly hurt by attempting daredevil stunts of their own, if anything else it pushes him to succeed.

Bart keeps his stunts fairly tame to start with, using
his skateboard to jump over cars, animals and set swimming pools, but soon sets his sights on jumping The the Springfield Gorge. Lisa is horrified and takes Bart to meet Murdock in hospital, hoping that the man will get Bart to change his mind. Unfortunately Murdock only encourages Bart, and so Lisa has no choice but to give in and tell their parents. However Bart stubbornly ignores anything that Homer has to say, and still heads out to the gorge to complete the stunt.

Homer follows Bart, and determined to show Bart how it feels to watch a family member do something incredibly stupid and dangerous, attempts to perform the stunt himself.

* PetTheDog: During the symphony, Homer is so focused on getting to the monster truck rally that he ignores pretty much everything. Once the family is finally on their way to it, though, Homer hums the tune Lisa was playing as he drives along, showing that he really did enjoy the recital.

* CombatPragmatist: During the wrestling match, Professor Werner von Brawn beans Rasputin on the head with a wrench he smuggled under his belt while the Russian's back is turned, knocking him out. The referee permits inexplicably this and declares him the winner, much to the outrage of the announcer and the audience.

* AmusingInjuries: Downplayed. Homer's pain and injuury from falling down the gorge seems more serious than the way it would be treated on common contemporary cartoons or a WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes classic like Wile. E. Coyote. But on the other hand, it's far from realistic or graphic, and most important of all, it doesn't go with an extreme level of painfulness, but rather, something [[RuleOfFunny exactly as painful as it can get while still being very funny]]. It definitely falls in the middle ground between realism vs. a pure slapstick.
