* AluminiumChristmasTrees: The Corey Hotline that Lisa runs up the phone bill by repeatedly calling was [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sk2CKwJ3hGo a real 1-900 number]].


Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Homer and Bart are having an argument. Homer asks Bart if he remembers how he used to have fun pushing him on the swing, which Bart denies, and says he was "faking it". Homer calls him a liar, and Bart then enthusiastically starts to say "Higher, Dad, Higher! Whee!" to prove his point.


Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: The first act has Homer dozing off while taking a bath and dreaming about being very late to pick up Bart from soccer practice (which, in fact, he is). The dream shows him driving in a wild panic up to the field, only to find a skeleton in soccer clothes with Bart's famous "hair-spikes" at the top of its skull; apparently Homer kept Bart waiting so long that Bart starved to death. Homer gathers up the corpse, [[BigNo screams]], and sobs - which prompts him to wake up, leap out of the bathtub, and frantically run out to his car dripping wet and completely naked [[HoYay (causing Ned Flanders to remark: "Homie, I see your doodle!")]]. Then, in the next scene, the "serious-to-silly" shift reverses itself with a very upset Bart getting in the car as Homer tries to hand him a hot-fudge sundae (which he bought to apologize), only for Homer to [[CoveredInGunge spill the sundae right on top of Bart's head]]. Homer then does his best to make up with his son as Bart just sits there glowering straight ahead, the ice cream and hot fudge dripping down his face and neck, getting angrier and angrier. The scene ends with Homer urging: "How about a hug?" Bart finally glares over at his father...and imagines him as ''[[NightmareFace an emaciated, eyeless zombie]]''. Pretty jarring, but certainly keeping up the BlackComedy overtones of the series's earlier seasons.
** And after ''that'', we cut to Bart at home watching an episode of ''Tuesday Night Live'' hosted by Krusty the Clown.


Added DiffLines:

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The writers based the Corey character on Corey Feldman and Creator/CoreyHaim, known as The Two Coreys.
* NoodleIncident: Skinner gets one when "talking" with his mother who is apparently watching him from their house (which for some reason resembles [[Film/{{Psycho}} Norman Bates' house]]):
-->No, mother. I have a right to be here; I'm on school business...but mother, that sailor suit doesn't fit anymore!"


Added DiffLines:

* PreciousCrush: Lisa is obsessed with Corey magazine and its hotline, all full of boys who were at least in their teens. When Marge finds out about Lisa's phone calls to the hotline, she reveals to Lisa that she was in the same situation in her childhood when she had a crush on Music/BobbySherman:
-->'''Marge Simpson''': Oh, honey, I know how you feel. When I was a girl, I had a crush on Bobby Sherman…
[Lisa bursts out laughing]
-->'''Marge Simpson''': [annoyed] The point is, I want you to stop making these calls!
