* 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 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.

* DeletedScene: Originally, Homer falling down the cliff after the ambulance crashes into a tree was supposed to have shown Homer hitting the rocks again and getting his head crushed by the gurney (which [[HilarityEnsues would have killed him if this show followed reality]]), but the scene was cut and replaced with a paused shot of the kids looking down while most of the audio can be heard. The actual scene of Homer falling after the ambulance crashes into a tree can be seen on the season four episode, "So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show."



* FirstAppearance: Debut of Dr. Hibbert.

* HopeSpot: During the (accidental) jump across the gorge, Homer believes he is going to get across, but then his forward momentum stops near the middle and he falls down.
-->'''Homer:''' I'm gonna make it. I'M GONNA MAKE IT! THIS IS THE GREATEST THRILL OF MY LIFE! I'M KING OF THE WORLD! WOO-HOO! WOO-HOO! I- ''[yelling]'' WHAAAAH!



* WhatTheHellHero: In a failed attempt to discourage Bart from trying to jump The Springfield Gorge, Lisa took him to the hospital room where daredevil Lance Murdock was in after one of his stunts. Murdock actually ''encouraged'' Bart to try.
