** And that sum is in 1980s dollars. Losing $44 million would hurt anyone by today's standards, but when the sums are adjusted for inflation, Krusty's losses are over '''$100 million'''. No wonder Krusty has so many financial problems in "present day" episodes.

* TheGhost: Homer has a cousin named Frank who [[{{Transsexual}} became Francine]] in 1976, then joined a cult and now goes by the name of "Mother Shabubu" -- all because he slept with his parents (not sexually) until he was 21.

Added DiffLines:

* InfantSiblingJealousy: Bart was unhappy with Lisa's birth, especially with Homer fawning over her because it coincided with a run of good fortune. Though a good part of Bart's misery came from random events indirectly caused by Lisa (e.g. Lisa gets Bart's old crib, so Homer makes Bart a new bed with a Monster Clown carved into the headboard). He was about ready to leave home until hearing Lisa's first word was "Bart".

* SpannerInTheWorks: Krusty Burger's Olympic promotion centers around printing game cards for different events. If America wins a gold medal in the event printed on the game card, participants can redeem the card for a free Krusty Burger. However, the cards are rigged in that they'e only for events that Communists never lose in. Krusty is initially happy with the idea...at least until he learns that the Soviets have decided to boycott the games. His accountant then calculates that Krusty himself personally stands to lose '''$44 million dollars''' on the promotion.

* TheEighties: The setting of the flashbacks. It was a time when, as Marge tells her kids, "Ms. Pacman struck a blow for women's rights, a young [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Joe Piscopo]] taught us how to laugh..." As the flashback begins, Marge is talking with Irish and Italian housewives about the last episode of ''M*A*S*H'', and Homer sings "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" as he comes home from work. Later, the 1984 Summer Olympics provide a B-plot.
