** Homer, for all his hatred for Marge's sisters, is actually civil to them in this episode (barring the "Legend of the Dogfaced Woman" crack and fast-forwarding the video will). He doesn't snark back when Patty tells Selma to "close your eyes and think of [=MacGyver=]" when Homer hugs them and Homer feels bad for Selma not being able to handle the kids during the trip to Duff Gardens.

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: The man on the ham radio is actually speaking foreign-sounding gibberish. Usually, the GoldenAge writers of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' [[ShownTheirWork actually research a foreign language and teach it to the voice actors]], but, in this case, they decided not to do it as RuleOfFunny.

'''Selma:''' Sorry, Surly.\\
'''Surly:''' Shut up.
* LadyLooksLikeADude: During funeral, the funeral home director repeatedly refers to Aunt Gladys as a man until someone finally corrects him.
-->"That's a woman?! Well, I guess most of what I said can be salvaged."

* OhCrap: The moment Selma says she wants a baby, Maggie wakes up and struggles to get out of the car.



* PetTheDog: Homer gives Selma a hug after she expresses regret over her failures in this episode.



** The ending where Selma sings Music/ArethaFranklin's "You Make Me Feel (Like a Natural Woman)" to Jub-Jub is based on the ''Series/MurphyBrown'' episode where Murphy Brown sings this to her baby. The DVD commentary says it was an obscure reference, as ''Murphy Brown'' isn't remembered much today.

Added DiffLines:

* VisualPun: After the funeral, the group leaves with a grandfather clock. It goes off just before Selma announces she wants a baby--meaning her biological clock is literally ticking.
