* BlasphemousBoast: After saving Barney's life, Homer goes into partnership with him in the snow-plow business, shouting out that if two friends stick together, not even God Himself can stop them. Cue a voice from the clouds: "Oh, really?" and the weather immediately becomes warmer, melting all the snow.

-->'''Insurance Agent:''' Now this place you were at, Moe's, is this a business of some sort?\\
'''Homer's Brain:''' Don't tell him you were at a bar! *gasp* But what else is open at night?\\
'''Homer:''' It's a pornography store. I was buying pornography.\\
'''Homer's Brain:''' Heh heh heh. I would'a never thought of that.



* HopeSpot: Homer moves the snow away from the Qwick-E-Mart, allowing it to stay open. Cue Snake driving up to the door.

-->''When the snow starts a-falling,
-->There's a man you should be calling.
-->That's K-L-five, four seven-nine-six! (Let it ring!)''
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: Averted. Homer's rap act doesn't get any approval by his kids.
* RedshirtReporter: A reporter in a helicopter is KilledMidSentence while trying to deliver a IfIDontReturn speech to his mum.

[[note]]The actual ten-thousand dollar bill features Chief Justice Salmon P. Chase, and hasn't been in cicrulation for decades.[[/note]][[TheDitz Barney]] is so impressed that he leaves immediately, abandoning his hot tub with Music/LindaRonstadt.

** The fact that Bart's snarky line, "You ARE fully licensed and bonded by the city, aren't you, Mr. Plow?" was never edited out of the first commercial.
