-->''Dean Bitterman, I hope nothing unsavory happens during my time here. As you know, I ''am'' President of the United States.''



* BigEater: When a meltdown caused Homer to glow and say he needed to destroy mankind, his wrist watch beeped to remind him it was lunch time. He quickly shook off the radiation and went for lunch.

* BrickJoke: "School of Hard Knockers" has a scene where the rebellious jock has set up a bra-bomb to cover the school with bras. This happened to coincide with the President's visit to the college. Homer was seen taking notes after this particular scene. Over the end credits, during Homer's second round of college, a montage of Homer's antics is played. One of the still photos seen is UsefulNotes/RichardNixon with a bra on his head, with Homer and the Dean triumphantly playing guitar in the background. Apparently Homer got revenge.

** Throughout the rest of the episode, Homer learns that college is not at all ''Animal House''-style fratboy pranks and antics, although he never does get taken aside and asked to knock off the immature behavior.

to:

* AchievementsInIgnorance: Homer achieves an EpicFail so massive that he managed to cause an actual nuclear meltdown in a nuclear plant simulation truck with no fissionable materials.



* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: In the flashback, Homer runs out of a meeting to fight a dog over a ham. In the present, he leaves a lecture to chase two squirrels with a stick.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Not necessarily even intentional but at the very end there is an uncensored (if very heavily muffled) F-bomb. It comes from the use of the recording of the song "Louie Louie" by The Kingsmen (which was famously studied by the FBI to check for the supposed profanity-laden lyrics). Whilst the former rumour was untrue the FBI, and presumably the censors, missed the drummer shouting the word after making an error (later confirmed by the drummer himself). For those curious it can be heard at the very end of the credits during the 'Executive Creative Consultant' credit.



* RealityEnsues: Homer learns the hard way that college ''isn't'' WackyFratboyHijinks.

to:

* RealityEnsues: Homer is convinced that college is nonstop WackyFratboyHijinks, and he learns the hard way that's not true. When his prank of kidnapping a rival school's mascot goes awry, his nerd classmates get expelled.
* RiddleForTheAges: Krusty shows an "Itchy and Scratchy" cartoon where Scratchy finally gets Itchy. However, the TV is unplugged while Bart and Lisa are watching, and by the time the TV's plugged back in, the cartoon's over with Krusty declaring "They'll never let us show
that college ''isn't'' WackyFratboyHijinks.again! Not in a million years!". How did Scratchy get Itchy?
