* ItsProbablyNothing: Grandpa joins the Simpsons in their aborted first flight. The family returns home afterwards without him, though Bart suspects they've forgotten something. After a brief cutaway of Grandpa screaming on the plane ala Kevin [=McCalister=] in ''Film/HomeAlone'', Homer dismisses the notion, saying, "I'm sure it's nothing."

** Marge begins acting strangely from not talking about her phobia, which includes being up at 3 in the morning cooking and doing roof repairs, insisting the cat and dog need to be married, and keeping herself in a state of "catlike readiness." Homer finally concedes to Marge seeing a therapist when it's pointed out she's sitting in mid air watching an airplane disaster movie.

* TherapyBackfire: Throughout the episode, Homer is paranoid about Dr. Zweig brainwashing Marge into blaming Homer for ''everything'' wrong with her life and abandoning him (because he has seen it happen to other men, he says... to be fair, Homer ''can'' be blamed for a lot of bad things happening to Marge, but he seems to believe Dr. Zweig will do nothing other than ''that'') and thus keeps on trying to meddle with the therapy (most probably leaving a bad first impression). After Marge obtains some EpiphanyTherapy regarding her fear of flying, Dr. Zweig ''[[ProperlyParanoid do]]'' tries to talk to Marge about "the big problem" that is Homer... only for Homer to barge into the office (he had been listening through the door) and take Marge away.

* CompressedVice: Marge wasn't afraid of flying when the family flew to Washington, D.C. in the previous episode "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington."



** SeriesContinuityError and CompressedVice: Marge wasn't afraid of flying when the family flew to Washington, D.C. in "Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington." Also, her father looks different than the one from "The Way We Was" (the episode that tells the story of how Homer and Marge first met when they were in high school) and in "Bart the Lover," Marge said that her father was in the navy and had a job as a baby photographer (which he nearly lost due to his constant cursing), though Marge's mom could have tried to cover up her husband's airline job as a male flight attendant from Marge until she could come up with a believable lie about his job (in the episode, Marge's mom tells her that her father was a pilot).



* SanitySlippage: Marge begins acting strangely from not talking about her phobia, which includes being up at 3 in the morning cooking and doing roof repairs, insisting the cat and dog need to be married, and keeping herself in a state of "catlike readiness."

** Homer tries to cure Marge by giving her some "films about air travel" with "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint upbeat titles]]": ''[[{{Film/AccidentalHero}} Hero]]'', ''[[{{Film/Fearless1993}} Fearless]]'' and ''{{Film/Alive}}''.

** Bancroft's husband Mel Brooks accompanied her to the recordings, with her saying "I can't get rid of him!" This led to Brooks getting his own appearance in the episode ''[[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E17HomerVsPattyAndSelma Homer vs. Patty and Selma]]''.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse and TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The writers completely forgot about Homer's quest to find a new bar after getting banned from Moe's. In fact, a lot of viewers (especially the ones from snpp.com) stated that the "Homer tries to find a new bar" plotline would have made a better episode than Marge going to therapy for her fear of flying.

* DeconstructiveParody: The scene where Homer goes to ''Series/Cheers'' treats Norm's alcoholism in a much more realistic manner (namely that he slurs his speech and tries to attack Woody when he gets cut off).
