Since none of these things ring a bell with Homer, he then performs ''"Billie Jean"'', including his famous moonwalk dance. Yet Homer still doesn't recognize him.

* MoonwalkDance: Jackson (as the mental patient Leon Kompowski who thinks he is Jackson) demonstrates this dance because Homer has never heard of the famous singer. Homer is amazed at the moonwalk and asks Michael: "How do you do that thing with your feet?" Jackson shows him, Homer tries, but he slides forwards instead of backwards. Later in the episode, after Bart is informed by phone that Michael Jackson will pay a visit to his house, he tells Marge that Homer is in an asylum and performs the moonwalk while humming the melody of "Beat It" at the same time.

* TheVoiceless: Homer meets a fellow patient -- [[Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest Chief]] -- who's this. He immediately greets him and Chief responds in kind. As the doctors flock around him, he explains that nobody ever bothered to talk to him before, so he never spoke back.
* WhenIWasYourAge: Bart says he can't write a song for Lisa, because he's only ten years old. Michael then snaps back (in reference to his [[Music/TheJacksonFive Jackson 5]] years): "When I was your age I had six gold records!"

* ProperlyParanoid: After Bart gets all his shirts turned pink, Homer worries that he'll be treated like a weirdo, but Marge tells him he'll be fine. Turns out that Homer was right, but how could Marge know that Mr. Burns [[SinisterSurveillance inspects the footage of every employee who comes in?]]
