Notable examples include playing hardball with Mr. Burns's offers via needing to go to the bathroom and thinking Burns is hitting on him, and his attempt to quit the job is mistaken as the cue to strike.
* BookcasePassage: Burns uses one to get to his secret control room.



* CrapsackWorld: Springfield, exemplified when the power comes back on. Among the things we see lighting up again are the adult movie theatres, and the fake vomit factory.
* DepravedDentist: Doctor Wolfe isn't depraved, but he is unflinchingly strict, and torments Ralph with "The Big Book of British Smiles", which reduces poor Ralph to tears. He also knows when someone's lying.
