* BalefulPolymorph: Homer at the end when the Devil turns his head into a donut. Not that he seems to mind, but it's still a hazard as every police officer in town is waiting outside the Simpson house to get a piece of Homer.

* ExactWords: Shows up three times.
** When Homer strikes his deal with Devil!Flanders for the donut, the latter explains that he'll take ownership of Homer's soul "the instant he finishes" the pastry. Homer, in a stunning moment of competence, immediately realizes that this means so long as he never takes the last bite, the contract can't be completed. It doesn't last, given Homer's BigEater tendencies, but it ''does'' give Lisa the opportunity to plead for a fair trial.
** Ends up saving the day at the end. Just before the Grim Reaper can pronounce Homer's sentence, Marge enters with a photo from her and Homer's wedding day. The back has a message from Homer, pledging his soul to Marge in exchange for her hand in marriage. He may have meant it metaphorically, but the jury decides that the pledge is legally binding--therefore, Marge owns Homer's soul, and it wasn't his to bargain with Flanders in the first place. This voids the contract and frees Homer.
** The last one has a dash of LiteralMinded thrown in for good measure. After losing Homer's soul, Flanders curses him: "May that donut forever be on your head!" The next morning shows that he meant exactly that--Homer's head has been transformed into a giant donut.

The family head back to Burns' castle and make their way to Burns' lair. Homer drives a stake through his heart (though not before accidentally hitting his crotch). Burns dies and all seems well...but the next morning at home Grandpa floats into the kitchen claiming to be a vampire. The rest of the family reveals to the shocked Lisa that they're ''all'' vampires, because Burns wasn't the head one -- ''Marge'' is. The undead family bare their fangs to attack Lisa...before turning to audience and wishing everyone a Happy Halloween, in a closing shot that parodies ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''.

* TooDumbToLive: Despite finding the vampire lair, Lisa and Bart should've beat feet back to the dining room and tried to warn their parents instantly. Instead they linger around long enough for the vampires within to awaken before finally fleeing. Even then, Bart winds up getting caught and bitten because he couldn't resist the lure of a "Super Fun Happy Slide''.

Some time later, the family is traveling at night to Pennsylvania, where Burns has invited them to dinner. At the manor there's even more obvious evidence of Burns being a vampire (i.e.: he mentions the family being "fresh victims of his ever growing army of the undead" over the entrance's intercom, his shadow has a life of its own, the "punch" served is blood, etc.) but only Lisa notices. Lisa "accidentally" spills the "punch" on Bart and her and they head off to get cleaned up. As they head back they discover Burns' vampire lair (oddly easily accessible) and investigate. As Lisa looks through Burns' autobiography ''Yes I Am a Vampire'', Burns' vampire minions rise and advance on the two. The kids flee but Bart stops when he sees a lever for a "Super Happy Fun Slide". Knowing it's a trap, Bart pulls it anyway and slides back down into the lair...where a group of vampires are waiting for him. A vampire woman pulls him off the slide and pins him down as the rest of the undead minions gather around him and bare their fangs menacingly. In flies a bat who morphs into Mr. Burns himself and Bart is presented to him. Though forgetful of Bart's name ("Well if isn't little..uh...boy"), Burns is more then happy to feed on his blood.
