* {{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.

** 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* MoralGuardians: Averted. The decision to legalize gambling in Springfield is unanimous, with even Reverend Lovejoy approving of it on the basis that "once something has been approved by the government, it's no longer immoral." Everyone expects Marge to stand against the proposal, but she agrees it could help improve Springfield's economy.
