* FlashBackBack: Played straight when Marge watches the video of Brad Goodman ending on the symptom "Chronic Nagging...nagging...nagging", then it's parodied when Selma says that her TV is on the fritz.

-->'''Kent Brockman''': Folks are finally accepting their feelings and really communicating, with no holding back, and this reporter thinks it's about ''[bleep]ing'' time!

* BothSidesHaveAPoint: What sets off the plot. Homer admits that, yes, his latest scheme did backfire, but being a constant bore who ''never'' tries new things like Marge isn't exactly a better way of life.

* BlatantLies: After Marge admits that she never realized people saw her as a nag, Lisa timidly asks if Marge is mad--Marge claims that she's not and that she's perfectly fine, but you can't tell that she's obviously very angry and offended to learn that people see her that way.

* FauxToGuide: Troy [=McClure=] introduces himself on ''Adjusting Your Self-O-Stat'' with "You might remember me from such self-help videos as ''Smoke Yourself Thin'' and ''Get Confident, Stupid''".



* FullyAutomaticClipShow: When Marge asks Bart and Lisa whether they agree with what Homer said about her, they're a little hesitant, but ultimately agree with their father's assessment--the show even cuts to clips from previous episodes (such as "Homer the Heretic," "Dog of Death," and "Colonel Homer") which prove that all Marge really does is ruin everyone's fun by nagging at them.

Added DiffLines:

* TotallyRadical: Bart's image in early 90s pop culture can be seen as this, even though this was never really part of his persona in the actual show (his skateboarding in the opening sequence perhaps being the closest he ever came). The episode parodied this phenomenon, right down to the quoting of "Cowabunga". When popular perception of the show began to focus more on Homer's antics, this aspect subsided.

* TheBore: Marge is called out on this--while Homer admits that Marge was right in that getting the trampoline was ultimately a mistake, he also points out that he's at least willing to go out try new things and claims to his wife, "If ''you'' were in charge of everything, all people would ever do is work and go to church." And after Homer asks her to name one thing she did in the past month that was even remotely fun, all Marge can think of is a time she made sloppy joes (after claiming that she can name ten things), which Homer scoffs isn't fun.

* AGodIAm: Bart feels like this...until Lisa points out that he's sitting on an ice cream sandwich and later, when he becomes sick of everyone acting like him.
