* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: After hearing Lisa's nightmare about the Boogeyman, Homer arms himself with a shotgun. When Marge comes home, we see that he has already fired a shot through the door; when she enters the door, he points the gun right at her face, and upon being relieved that it's her he casually tosses the gun on the floor causing it to discharge as he runs over to embrace her.



* CallingOutForNotCalling: Marge develops a gambling addiction and Lisa is the first to be worried by her sudden lack of presence and dedication.
-->Do you get the feeling this family is disintegrating? I mean, we haven't had a meal with Mom all week. And she hasn't even started my costume for the geography pageant.



* TheGamblingAddict: Marge

to:

* TheGamblingAddict: MargeMarge becomes addicted to slot machines at the casino, and shows this trait occasionally in subsequent episodes.

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]]
