* WrittenSoundEffect: Bart's runaway tractor ride culminates with him hitting Superintendant Chalmers, which comes complete with a HitFlash straight out of ''WesternAnimation/{{Looney Tunes|AndMerrieMelodies}}'' and the word "POW!" flying around -- perhaps the most un-''Simpsons''-like moment in the history of the show.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory and FridgeBrilliance: Grampa's story about how he had to pose as a German cabaret singer after he got separated from his platoon during a raid in Dusseldorf isn't true, not just because of how cartoonish the flashback was, but because the German cabaret was outlawed in 1935, with many involved either fleeing the country or getting put in concentration camps due to their anti-Nazi views (and some of the performers possibly being Jewish). The Dusseldorf air raid that Grampa was said to be a part of happened in 1942. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because he admits only "most" of his tale was truth. The only specific part he acknowledges as truth is the fact he once wore a dress in the 1940's.

* LockedUpAndLeftBehind: Nelson, Jimbo, Dolph, Kearney, and Bart get locked in the school's bomb shelter by Skinner while Chalmers is paying a visit. Only Bart is getting out. [[SomethingWeLeftBehind At the episode's end]], possibly weeks later, Skinner realizes the rest are still in there.



** Another example is actually subverted at the end of the episode when Skinner remembers that Nelson, Jimbo, Dolph, and Kearney are still locked in the school's bomb shelter.

** The time Grampa wore a dress in the 1940s ([[MakesSenseInContext not that messed-up flashback of him posing as a German cabaret singer and flirting with Hitler until his breast padding fell out]]). The only information we get out of it is that the designers were really good back then (though the season 17 finale "Homer and Marge Turn a Couple Play" reveals that Albe and Jasper dressed up as women and joined a baseball team to avoid getting drafted. Maybe it's a {{CallBack}} to this, maybe not. The writers don't say and fans are left to speculate).

When Groundskeeper Willie asks what he'll do if the bullies are dead, he says he'll flee to Mexico.
