* SeparatedByACommonLanguage: Referenced in Homer's rant about wanting to take a vacation:
--> '''Homer''': I'm ''sick'' of eating "hoagies". I want a "grinder", a "sub", a "foot-long hero"!

* MoralMyopia: The patrons of Moe's bar play a sequence of increasingly brutal practical jokes on their publican, all of which he takes in good humor (such as ''lighting his clothes on fire'' and HIDING A COBRA in the cash register which repeatedly bites him). Lastly, Homer plays the innocuous "Loose Salt Shaker Lid" gag on Moe and immediately gets chewed out by his friends and barred from entry. Of course, [[RuleOfFunny this is the joke]].



** Homer visits the bar from the TV sitcom ''{{Cheers}}'', where the main cast (except Kelsey Grammer) voices their characters from the show.

** 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 met 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 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).
