* EveryoneHasStandards: Zig-zagged. While Mr. Burns is willing to poison Homer [[DisproportionateRetribution for eating doughnuts on company time]], Smithers wasn't (even going as far as the consult the attorneys about it). Also, while Patty and Selma initially don't care that Homer suffered a heart attack, when they bring around a new man for Marge named Andre while Homer is in surgery, even they realize [[HeelRealization how tasteless it appears]] and genuinely wish him to pull through (although [[JerkAss Andre]] doesn't).

* SuicideAsComedy: During the ''COPS: In Springfield'' opening, Chief Wiggum tries to get a suicidal man off the ledge of a building. Rather than come back in, the man decides to drop to this death.

Years of fatty foods and minimal exercise has taken its toll on Homer's heart and Dr. Hibbert advises Homer to get an artery bypass graft for $40,000. With the family unable to afford the operation, much less even (in)adequate medical insurance to cover the cost, Homer is forced to turn to a BackAlleyDoctor's $129.95 hack-job to save his life. Can Lisa and her newfound knowledge of cardiology save the day?
