* ScarilyCompetentTracker: Not only does the above-mentioned North Haverbrook's angry mob [[CrazyPrepared know about Lyle's "unscheduled stop" ahead of time]], they can tell which seat he's in before the plane even lands.

* CasualDangerDialogue: Even with the monorail going out of control, when Marge calls Homer on the intercom, he replies with "Y'ellow?" like he's just sitting at home watching TV.

* WouldHurtAChild:
** Mr. Burns had been storing his barrels of toxic waste in a playground. He only changes the location when he decides all the bald children might make someone suspicious.
** Lanley knows that children will be passengers on his shoddy monorail, but doesn't seem to give a damn. He also knows that Bart is in the cockpit with Homer and would, if the engine crashes, be among the first to die.

* EvilGloating: Non-verbal example. When Marge goes to Lanley's office to question him, she finds his paperwork, which has drawings of him celebrating with money he stole from the monorail project, while the town falls victim to the poorly-constructed train.

* AntiquatedLinguistics: To settle an argument over who's in charge during an emergency, Chief Wiggum and Mayor Quimby consult Springfield's town charter (the town was founded in 1796):
-->'''Wiggum''': Hey, according to the charter, as chief constable, Iím supposed to get a pig every month! And "two comely lasses of virtue true".

* AFateWorseThanDeath: What's implied to happen to Lanley when his plane lands in North Haverbrook. Many of the survivors of the town rush the airplane and immediately confront Lanley; the plane rocking and shaking violently, and his squealing in pain, suggests that he is being severely beaten.

"'''Marge vs. the Monorail'''" is regarded as one of the best episodes and among the most critically acclaimed episodes in ''TheSimpsons'''s run. Written by Creator/ConanOBrien (after he wrote for ''SaturdayNightLive'', but before he got his own talk show on NBC, then lost it, then regained it on TBS), the show draws a contrast between most of the easily duped residents of Springfield and the more intelligent Marge, who is suspicious that a slick-talking salesman and his visions of a multi-million dollar monorail bringing wealth and dreams to Springfield are not all what they seem.
