* 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).

Homer gets banned from Moe's Tavern after playing a lame prank, and uses an airport bar as his new watering hole, but when Homer is mistaken for a pilot and causes an accident, the head of the airline pays him off with a vacation to anywhere in the United States (except for freak states, Alaska and Hawaii). However, the trip is short-lived, when Marge has a mental breakdown before the flight. Marge assures the family that she's fine, but when her erratic behavior begins freaking out the family, Marge goes into therapy to find out why she's afraid of flying.
