* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Homer's guardian angel appears to him in the form of UsefulNotes/IsaacNewton, "a man you would respect and revere." When he realizes Homer has no idea who Newton is, he instead takes the form of [[Series/HogansHeroes Colonel Klink]] -- which he ''really'' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny didn't want to do]].
-->"[[CrowningMomentOfFunny COLONEL KLINK, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?]]"
* AnimationBump: Subtle, but the bellhop's [[ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes disembodied eyeballs]] from the last joke of the episode exhibit a lot more [[TheTwelvePrinciplesOfAnimation squash-and-stretch]] activity. Justified, in that there's a lot less to draw.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Mindy just vanished after Homer tells her that they can never be in love because he's a married man. While WildMassGuessing has suggested that Homer imagined Mindy as Marge so he can finally have sex with her, later episodes with Homer at the nuclear plant don't have Mindy Simmons at all, suggesting that Mindy left, Marge [[NoodleIncident somehow]] found out where Homer was, and came down to cheer him up. "Another Simpsons Clip Show" from season six explained that Mindy was fired from her job at the plant after succumbing to alcoholism, but later episodes (such as "Team Homer"[[note]]season seven episode where Homer starts his own bowling team and Springfield Elementary implements a uniform dress code after Bart wears a "Down With Homework" shirt[[/note]] and "The Twisted World of Marge Simpson"[[note]]the season eight episode where Marge starts her own pretzel company, and Homer gets the Springfield Italian mob to help her[[/note]]) have Mindy clean and sober, suggesting that she either went to rehab and came back or the "Mindy drank herself out of the job" story was a rumor.

* CuttingCorners: The RunningGag concerning the lack of safety at Springfield Nuclear Power Plant continues, with Homer and some of his friends discovering the hard way that the emergency exit doors are ''painted onto the walls''.
