When Homer, Marge, and Lisa are looking for Bart and Stampy, they [[FollowTheChaos follow a trail of destruction]] that seemed to be caused by the elephant. But then it's revealed it was because of a tornado, much to Homer's chagrin...until he sees that it had swept up Patty and Selma.Selma.
** Also when children coming to the door offer to pay money to see Stampy, Homer, who's just been complaining about how much it's costing them in order to keep him, states that that gives him an idea...to nail a "GO AWAY" sign to the front of the yard to stop people from bothering him about wanting to see the elephant.


Added DiffLines:

* TemptingFate: Lisa, after Helen Lovejoy notes that Stampy seems ill-tempered, comments that "you'd be grumpy too if you were taken out of your natural habitat and gawked at by slack-jawed yokels." Cue a debuting Cletus pointing at Lisa and laughing at her pointy hair.

* CrazyPrepared: More on the crazy side, but the manager of a peanut butter factory insisted the workers spent two hours a day preparing themselves for elephant raids. Too bad he wasted time bragging to the workers.

Too bad he wasted time bragging to the workers. Amusingly, Stampy just ran through the factory without doing anything to the peanuts.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Bill and Marty offer Bart either $10,000 or a full-grown African elephant. Bart chooses the elephant. Bill and Marty are caught off guard because they never expected anyone to actually choose the gag prize, and don't have an elephant to give to Bart. This error nearly costs the two their jobs, as they're forced to get Bart an elephant or risk being replaced by the DJ 3000.
