* FifteenMinutesOfFame: Bart's fame wears off after a couple of weeks.



** And it becomes apparent that Lisa is the only main character without a CatchPhrase.



* ChirpingCrickets: When Bart does his line and the audience is not reacting, we hear this sound.
* ClosedDoorRapport:
** Bart refuses to come out of his room to do another appearance on the Krusty Show. However Marge changes his mind talking to Bart from behind the door.
** The canibal actor on the set shouts at Bart from behind the bathroom door.



* DeadHatShot: Bart tossing his red baseball cap on to a cardboard box when he ditches the ClassTrip to the box factory leads Homer to conclude that he has been made into a box.



* FieldTrip: The episode begins with Bart's class going on a trip to a box factory. On the way they pass in front of a "Toy Town", a fireworks testing range and a slide factory, all of which have other schools' buses parked outside
* GameShowAppearance: Bart dreams he's a panelist on ''Series/MatchGame 2034''. He ends up knocking over, and breaking, [[Series/ToTellTheTruth Kitty Carlisle]]'s [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} head-in-a-jar]].
* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Parodied with that guard on the studio set who lets Bart pass on his word that he works there.
* HappyPlace: Lisa doesn't want to leave her ImagineSpot because she likes being in it too much.
* HorribleHollywood: Bart is exposed to the full force of showbiz, "a hideous bitch goddess".



* ImplausibleDeniability: When Bart accidentally destroys Krusty the Clown's set in front of a live audience, his attempt to deny it spawns the CatchPhrase "I didn't do it".
* ImStandingRightHere: Lisa gives a disgusted tirade on Bart's popularity and claims she'd loathe to be remembered for a mere obnoxious fad. When a hurt Bart is revealed to have entered the room, she awkwardly looks away and reads.
* InstantlyProvenWrong: When Krusty declares that Bart doesn't have it as a star after ruining his set, he opens the door only to bump into a crowd of people waiting to see Bart.

* {{Irony}}: In her ImagineSpot Lisa remarks how ironic it is that she impaled her brother on her Nobel Peace Prize.
* LenoDevice: Creator/ConanOBrien appears in his show with Bart as his guest. Considering Conan has written more than a few episodes of ''The Simpsons'', it's appropriate.
* LostFoodGrievance: Kent Brockman really loves danishes. When Bart swipes Brockman's danish (which resembles more of a cinnamon roll) to give to Krusty, Brockman discovers his pastry missing and won't do the news report.
* ModestyTowel: When Homer comes out of the shower at the nuclear plant to answer the phone: "You'll have to speak up. I'm wearing a towel."



** To escape the box factory, Bart hides himself in a laundry basket, similar to ''Theatre/{{Annie}}''. The only difference is that nobody was there to take him out, so he just goes out through a nearby door.

** Bart has one when he tries to imagine a place he'd rather he instead of the box factory. It backfires when he can't think of anything else.

Added DiffLines:

* InterruptedBath: When Bart wanders off from a field trip, and Principal Skinner calls Marge at home, causing her to run to the phone dripping wet in a towel. When she doesn't answer on time, he calls Homer at work, where, for some reason, he ''also'' runs for the phone after a shower.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: Bart taking a cell phone call during class while working as Krusty's assistant. Back then, the joke was that only important people had cell phones (and that cell phones in the 1990s were big and unwieldy). These days, with smaller cell phones and kids as young as ten having them (due to their parents trying to make sure where they are at all times or the kids themselves wanting to be hip and cool), the joke isn't all that funny or revolutionary, and comes off as odd that a ten-year-old would have such a big cell phone.

* CatchPhrase: This episode makes fun of the fact that people who become famous for blurting a catchphrase are only famous for a short time. To paraphrase what Lisa tells her dad, "If I'm ever famous for something, I want it to be for something worthwhile and not just some stupid fad."
