!!This episode contains examples of (YMMV tropes can be found [[YMMV/TheSimpsonsS5E1HomersBarbershopQuartet here]]):



* AsHimself: David Crosby and Music/GeorgeHarrison.

* NoodleIncident: Homer and The Be-Sharps sing a song about Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop. Annoyed, Apu then gripes to him, "This is worse than your song about Creator/MrT!"
** The reasons why the Be-Sharps' meteoric success has been so utterly forgotten just eight years later, not to mention just how it happened in the first place ("Since when can you write a song?") are all brought up at the end of the episode, and Homer brushes them all off with a comment that yes, there is an explanation, but he'll tell them some other time.
** When Skinner says he can't remember the last time the band was all together, Apu reminds that the previous year they appeared on "that stupid Dame Edna special".



* ShootTheTelevision: After seeing Johnny Carson mock him on ''Series/TheTonightShow'' for being kicked out of the Be Sharps, a furious Wiggum shoots his TV four times. Subverted in that not only does he miss them all, but it turns out he thought he was holding the remote (which was in his gun holster) and wanted to change the channel. When it further becomes clear that [[YourTelevisionHatesYou his TV hates him]], he ''throws'' his gun at it and shatters the screen.

** Barney's accidental audition by singing "Danny Boy" is one to Film/CantStoptheMusic. Ironic, since he was replacing Chief Wiggum, who was "too Village People".
