* MisspellingOutLoud: Homer gets his college application back and lights his high school diploma on fire, hilariously misspelling the word "smart" before quickly correcting himself:
--->'''Homer''': I am so smart! I am so smart! S-M-R-T! I mean S-M-A-R-T![[note]]The word was spelled correctly in the script; Creator/DanCastellaneta flubbed it, but it was decided to ThrowItIn.[[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* NoodleImplements: Just what Mr. Burns wanted with the Jade Monkey is never revealed. It probably wasn't for anything good.

* StatusQuoIsGod: Homer will, of course, keep his job, but instead of just taking it for granted and getting buy on cheating, he has to go back to school. The end credits montage show a semester's worth of gags and him legitimately graduating.

Of note, this is the last script that Creator/ConanOBrien was credited with writing, as he became the new host of ''Series/LateNight'' around this time.

* BeeAfraid: "THE BEE BIT MY BOTTOM! NOW MY BOTTOM'S BIG!"



* BeyondTheImpossible: Homer causes a nuclear meltdown in a truck that had absolutely no nuclear material in it. One of the inspectors lampshades this, while Conan laughs about it in the audio commentary.



* LostAesop: Parodied. Homer tries to pull morals out of this story and gets contradicted.
-->'''Homer''': Look, the important thing is that we all learned a lesson. These guys learned the richness and variety of the world outside college.\\
'''Benjamin''': No, we didn't.\\
'''Homer:''' Oh. Then I learned the real value of college is to study and work hard.\\
'''Lisa''': No, you didn't. You only passed your course by cheating, which you always taught us was wrong.

Benjamin, Doug and Gary, who immediately hand over their wallets to Snake when he claims to be the "wallet inspector." Even Snake is surprised that actually worked. And this is followed by Homer simply saying, "That's not the wallet inspector."
** During the inspection, Smithers sends Homer and two other dimwitted employees to the basement--tasking them with the "important" job of watching a bee in a bottle. The two guys actually do question why they're doing this, but Homer buys it completely.
--->'''Homer''': You guys are pathetic. No wonder Smithers made me head bee guy.

* ZanySchemeZanyScheme: Homer's constant antidote for everything, much to the nerds' confusion.

* OffModel: A few moments fall into this, likely due to Creator/RoughDraftStudios still getting a handle on how to draw the characters. In one shot while Homer is buttering his toast, he has buggy FishEyes.
