Added DiffLines:

* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Herb stays with the Simpsons while he tries to get back on his feet. Justified in that he's destitute and has been living as a hobo until now. Also subverted in that Herb moves out once he regains his fortune, pays the Simpsons back the $2,000 they lent him and gets them all gifts for believing in him.

** In reality, "The Homer" trumps New Coke because the Coca-Cola Company is still independent while Herb had to sell Powell Motors and lost his entire fortune to boot.

* BeyondTheImpossible: Homer somehow has over 100% body fat. [[SubvertedTrope The extra 4% are implied to come from the chicken drumstick he's eating while suspended in the buoyancy tank]].
* {{Bookworm}}: Lisa really wishes to get a subscription for the greatest books of Western canon. [[GeniusBookClub Herb obliges]].

In this sequel to "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou," Herbert Powell, Homer's once-wealthy half-brother, is now homeless and searching for the next new idea to take him back to the top -- and all he needs is Homer's $2,000 prize money he got at a (rigged) award show and a place to stay (the Simpsons' house).
