* BaitAndSwitch: ArchEnemy: After Bart admits he misses Skinner as an enemy:
-->'''Lisa:''' I think you need Skinner, Bart. Everybody needs a nemesis. Sherlock Holmes had his Dr. Moriarty. Mountain Dew has its Mellow Yellow. Even Maggie has that baby with the one eyebrow.\\
''[Bart and Lisa see Maggie stare intently at Baby Gerald from the window]''
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: While looking longingly at the school, Skinner remembers some of the things students have said to him.
-->'''Girl:''' I learned to read because of you, Principal Skinner.\\
'''Martin:''' Sir, I baked you these raisin roundies.\\
'''Ralph:''' Principal Skinner, I got carsick in your office.

** Some of Willie's pursuit of Santa's Little Helper in the vents echoes a scene from ''Film/{{Alien}}''.
* SkewedPriorities:
** Apu's ItsBeenDone example follows him being only mildly irritated by Bart abusing the Kwik-E-Mart's self-serve policy and making a big mess.
** After brazenly excusing the problems occurring on Ned's watch, Chalmers objects to his invoking God.
--->"God has no place within these walls, just like facts have no place within organized religion! Simpson, you get your wish! Flanders is history!"

* HopeSpot: Happens rather early, when Chalmers is scolding Skinner in front of everybody and suddenly Santa's Little Helper lands on his arms and licks him, which softens him enough to forgive the principal, only for Willie to fall on top of him, which gets Skinner fired.

* SelectiveEnforcement: Chalmers lets Flanders get away with ten times the mayhem and incompetence he fired Skinner over. He nonchalantly admits he just didn't like Skinner and the schools are going down the tubes anyway.
