Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: Homer's past goof-ups include getting caught stealing watches from Sears and letting an escape lunatic in the house for being dressed as Santa Claus, which apparently aren't as bad as Marge's gambling problem.


Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: In a DeletedScene, Homer is dealing cards to Film/JamesBond, who is playing poker with [[ArchVillain Blofeld]]. Being who he is, he not only deals him the Joker card but also ''[[WhatAnIdiot the rules for draw and stud poker]]'', which leads to Bond losing and being dragged off by Blofeld's henchmen.[[note]]Even better, his henchmen are [[Film/{{Goldfinger}} Oddjob]] and [[Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe Jaws]], who as iconic as they both are, [[AnachronismStew never worked for him personally,]] though this could have been done for RuleOfFunny.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Mr. Burns is a proud member of the Simpsons world's counterpart of the Freemasons, but he's evidently scared of the real thing (when he imagines the microbes on Smithers' face announcing "Freemasons run the country!")

* {{Angrish}}: Homer meant to say, and ''did'' say on the third try, "[[WhatTheHellHero You broke a promise to your child]]", but he was too angry with Marge to talk coherently. She ended up having to remind him to think about what he was saying.

* TerribleIntervieweesMontage: Mr Burns is less than thrilled over the idea pitches for the casino. The first, ''Britannia'', was supposed to be English-themed, with genuine Cockney waitresses (actually prostitutes fresh from the streets of Sussex). The second was a hippie who thought he was being brought in to pitch Woodstock. The third interview, the Sea Captain, tried to talk Burns into financing a spice expedition to the East Indies.

* SanitySlippage: Burns' sanity gradually erodes a la Howard Hughes the more he works in the casino. He grows a long shaggy beard, becomes obsessed with germs, starts wearing tissue boxes on his feet, preserves his own urine in jars, and insists a model of an airplane he built is real.

** Homer recites Scarecrow's "brainy" quote from ''Film/TheWizardOfOZ'', which gets irritably corrected by someone[[note]]The quote was "The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side." By "isosceles triangle" it should be "right triangle", as was pointed out in this episode[[/note]].
