* SophisticatedAsHell: Creator/PatrickStewart as "Number One", given his Shakespearean method of communication and deep, rich baritone can have this effect, especially with lines like this:

* TheIlluminati: This episode gloriously mocks every aspect of the very notion of a clandestine, privileged society. While the Stonecutters '''do''' wield considerable power (evidenced by their song), they use it to basically congratulate themselves and "get drunk and play ping-pong."

* ChirpingCrickets: Happens when Homer tells the Stonecutters that they should dedicate themselves to helping the less fortunate.fortunate, either due to poor communication and inadvertently making it sound like an order and not a request, or because it just happened to make them think he's gone mad with power and would kill those who disobey.


Added DiffLines:

* PoorCommunicationKills: This would have happened when Homer declared the Stonecutters were going to help the less fortunate and unwittingly made it sound like he was going to rule their lives and kill those who refused to obey him. Instead, the Stonecutters decided to form the Ancient Mystic Society of No Homers. So it's now "Poor Communication Leads to Abandomment."
