* DoNotAdjustYourSet: Burns' most outlandish plan to get Bobo is to hold television in Springfield hostage, and deliver his ultimatum to Homer. Funnily enough, he doesn't so much as hijack the airwaves with his own broadcast as he storms the studio of each channel, even running to a new one when Homer uses the remote.
-->'''Burns:''' And if the rest of you beer-swilling, tube-rockies have a problem with that...''talk to Homer Simpson.''

** Homer watching ''BarneyTheDinosaur'' with Maggie, and thoroughly enjoying the repetitive sing song, makes it no surprise when Burns' downgraded programming doesn't faze him that much.



* TooDumbToLive: One of the ice diggers, who went all the way to the Antarctic to get Apu some ice, brings the bags to Apu and says: "You've gotta start selling this for more than a dollar a bag. We lost four men on this expedition!" Apu then angrily challenges him to think of a better way to get ice, and the man can't come up with one.

* FanDisservice: Smithers imagines ''Mr. Burns'' erotically popping out of a birthday cake for him clad in nothing but a sash (though Smithers sees it as fanservice, which does nothing to downplay the fact that Smithers is gay for his boss).

* TheUnishment: Out of all the torturous acts Burns attempts on Homer to force Bobo back, the television hijack fails miserably. Homer actually ends up ''enjoying'' his and Smithers' new programming.
