* OutOffCharacterMoment: It seems odd that Bob - who speaks out against lowbrow humor in other episodes - would find Jim Varney very funny, unless it's a GuiltyPleasure of his.

** It's highly likely that Bob wasn't genuinely laughing, but merely doing it to annoy/bait the Simpsons. See also his cigar smoking.

* ScheherezadeGambit: When Bob has Bart cornered on the adrift houseboat and asks if he has any {{Last Request}}s, Bart plays on his ego, telling him he has such a lovely singing voice ("Guilty as charged!" exclaims Bob) and asks him to sing the entire score of ''H.M.S. Pinafore'', Bob complies (mostly to prove he can do it, probably) oblivious to the fact that the boat is drifting towards Springfield as he does, and as he finishes, he's noticed by Chief Wiggum and a squad of armed police, who tell him to raise 'em.

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: The family first meets Bob while watching a movie called ''Ernest Goes Someplace Cheap'', a clear Take That towards movies with Jim Varney's IdiotHero character Ernest P. Worrell (of course, most consider those movies AcceptableTargets).
