* BreakTheHaughty: The lady who runs the pony farm whose first 2 scenes were more or less her being snarky to Homer, is actually moved by Lisa's goodbye to Princess. Though she lampshades her lack of tone changing despite it.
--> '''Pony Farm Owner:''' Although there is no change in my patrician facade my heart is breaking.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Ralph Wiggum appears watching Lisa ride her pony. Not only is his one line ("But what man can tame her?") very out of character with Ralph's better known characterization, but Ralph speaks in Nelson's voice.

** An exhausted Homer drives home, imagining his car turning into a bed.



* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Creator/TressMacNeille voices the Katharine Hepburn-esque stable manager.
