* AmazinglyEmbarrssingParents: Bart and Marge go shopping for clothing and she does things such as suggest he try on some cute underwear when other kids were around and opening the door to the changing room without warning while he was still getting dressed. It came off as less of 'Marge is embarrassing' than 'Marge is a {{Cloudcuckoolander Jerk}]'. Then again, they don't object to much of what Homer does because he is at least frequently called on it, even though everything snaps back by the end.

** Honestly, the action taken by the security guards is the right action as stealing hurts the mall more than a simple insult.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The subplot of Marge buying clothes for Bart ended with Bart stuck in the car as the bullies shake it, yelling, "You have to come out some time, Simpson." It's never mentioned again and the story just ends there. Though he ''did'' somehow get out of there.
** It is very likely that the writers punished Bart for his actions in "[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS3E13RadioBart Radio Bart]]."

* TakeThat: The episode takes jabs at the Super Bowl broadcasts of the 1980s, which consisted on rather bland family-friendly half-time shows built around a theme while the game would be followed by the premiere of a new TV show that would usually be cancelled after one season (''Series/TheATeam'', which premiered after S.B. XVII being one of the few exceptions). This doubles with UnintentionalPeriodPiece for both practices were abandoned a few years later: The half-time show would feature pop stars beginning in the following year (something in which Fox's ''Series/InLivingColor'' special played an important part), and after NBC aired an special hour-long episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'' after Super Bowl 30, most post-game shows would be Super Bowl-themed episodes of already-established programs.
