Added DiffLines:

* HopeSpot: A bill collector comes to Homer's house, accidentally thinking it's the Flanders household. When Homer sets him straight, the man says, "You're Homer Simpson? See you Thursday."
* {{Irony}}: The bill collector who accidentally knocks on the wrong house (he meant to go to Ned's house) says an ironic statement:
--> '''Homer''': Flanders is in debt? Are you sure?\\
'''Chuck Ellis''': We don't make mistakes.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: While itís easy to root for Ned he doesnít really deserve the happy ending he got in this episode. He sinks his whole lifeís saving into a store that only caters to 1/9th of the population. Even though there is a demand he does nothing to promote the store himself and instead itís Homer who gets all of the customers there. The fact of the matter is that Flanderís is shown to be a horrible business man yet the episode tries to shift the blame off of him and on to Homer.

* OffModel: ''Like you wouldn't believe.'' (though compared to the disaster that was "Some Enchanted Evening", this one wasn't too bad). This happened because the episode was farmed out to a "company that no one had ever heard of; it was people that had just recently gotten opposable thumbs" (though the credits still list {{Creator/AKOM}} as the animators). Mike Reiss had said he will always remember the episode "that came back animated with a thousand mistakes in it and was just a complete and utter mess." They had attempted to clean up as much as possible, but errors still made it through.
