* JerkassHasAPoint: Even God seems somewhat convinced of Homer's reasons for not liking church, and the weather was, indeed, kind of bad, resulting in Marge, Lisa, and Bart having a ''horrible'' morning due to Marge's insistence.



* WillNotTellALie: At the end, Homer announced he'd be at church next Sunday. He was. [[ExactWords He simply didn't say he'd stay awake.]]

** RealityEnsues: Which results in the car stalling in the church parking lot and thus Marge and the kids having to walk all the way home ''through'' the aforementioned blizzard. [[DidntThinkThisThrough Not such a good idea now, eh, Marge?]]

* HeroicDog: Subverted with Santa's Little Helper. As the house is on fire, Homer is asleep on the couch, Santa's Little Helper takes a candy bar from his pocket and escapes.

-->'''Homer''': He appeared before me in a dream, and I knew that was special because I usually dream about naked...Marge.
* NutritionalNightmare: Homer's "moon waffle", made with waffle batter, liquid smoke, and heaping handfuls of caramel and wrapped around a stick of butter after burning the waffle iron (which would explain why, in the Treehouse of Horror story where Lisa creates a mini-universe, Lisa grumbles, "That waffle iron's been in the shop forever").

* WordOfGod: The writers thought that when the episode aired, the end would be immediately followed by a Fox promo (rather than just the credits). The idea was that the viewers would be pissed off by having a revelation from God being cut off by a promo.
