* 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.
