* BaitAndSwitch: When Lisa and Bart buy some books, with Lisa buying one by UsefulNotes/AlGore and Bart buying one about [=UFOs=], the library scanner sends a signal to a satellite, which sends it to the US Pentagon, and it's printed out. An Army officer looks over it, and immediately hurries to the White House, reporting to Gore that somebody finally bought his book.

Added DiffLines:

* FlatJoy: Al Gore was really excited that someone bought his book.
-->'''Gore''': (smiling; monotone) Well. (reaches over to a record player; turns it on) This calls for a celebration.
-->'''Record Player''': ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celebration_(Kool_%26_the_Gang_song) Ce-le-brate good times, come on!]]''
-->'''Gore''': (still monotone) I will.

* IfItsYouItsOkay: Homer tells Marge a father shouldn't tell his own son his birth was an accident. Marge reminds him he says it to Bart all the time, but Homer says when ''he'' does it "it's cute".

* EpicFail: Homer's attempts to be a good father to Bart and Lisa all fail spectacularly because he smothers them and won't listen to their objections. Bart even tells him that they far preferred it when he wasn't trying to be a good father to them.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The kids spying on their parents disappears eventually. A deleted scene had Ralph telling them that the parents aren't around because they're busy having sex. The writers edited this out because they didn't think Ralph would be smart enough to understand that.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Normally, when Homer's mad, he'll explode at you. Abe's "You were an accident!" comment evidently hurt him enough to put him in TranquilFury mode.
-->'''Abe:''' If I hadn't taken that tonic 38 years ago, you would never have been born and I would be happy! ''You were an ACCIDENT!''\\
'''Homer:''' (''[[BrakeAngrily slams on the brakes]] and speaks very softly but still evidently enraged'') Get out.\\
'''Abe:''' (''realizes what he just said'') I'm so sorry I said that...\\
'''Homer:''' (''still softly'') ''Out.''

* ContinuityNod: Marge mentions [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS3E12IMarriedMarge Bart's birth being an accident]] as well.



* SarcasmBlind: When Lisa jokingly suggests that the adults of Springfield have become reverse vampires who have to get home before dark, all the other kids become terrified of the idea, and instantly accept it.

Added DiffLines:

* DidNotThinkThisThrough: Planting Homer in the audience to sell the tonic fails not only because of Homer's lousy acting skills but also because Homer's face is in the tonic's label.
