* AntiClimax: It turns out that Krusty only owed the mob $48, which he casually pays back at the end of the episode, even getting change back.



* ConspicuousConsumption: Krusty spends money on some truly ridiculous things, including buying a new house because his current one is dirty, hiring Kenny G to play muzak for him in an elevator, sending a thousand roses to Bea Arthur's grave (she's still alive, or was at the time the episode aired), and condor egg omelettes.



* DisproportionateRetribution: The mobsters are willing to kill Krusty over a measly $48.
* DissonantSerenity: Homer sees his co-workers as cavorting clowns. [[CrossesTheLineTwice While they're on fire]].
-->'''Homer''': ''[chuckles]'' [[CreepyMonotone Clowns are funny...]]



** One of the items Krusty sets on fire to light a cigar (including [[MoneyToBurn a $100 bill]] and a [[RuleOfFunny pearl necklace]]) is a copy of [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Action Comics #1]].



--->'''Bart''': ''[under his breath]'' What's a Chachi?



* SnakeOilSalesman: Homer runs into one at a car-dealership, who manages to convince Homer the gunshot holes in the car caused by the mobsters trying to kill him are "speed holes".

** Case in point: when "Krusty" takes a break at the party from exhaustion, Kirk assertively stands above him and says, "It's not 5:30 yet!", basically telling him to get back to work. The later Kirk would have NOWHERE near the self-confidence or demeanor to do something like that.

Added DiffLines:

** You can claim the divorce turned him into the pathetic deadbeat he is, but during the divorce, Luann claimed he was always a failure and the family was on a huge downslope.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: While Season 6 is far from "early" in the show's development, this episode portrays Milhouse's dad Kirk as a very competent, respected man who has connections to get Krusty to come to his son's birthday (even if it was just Homer). In later episodes, especially after the divorce in season 8, he becomes a pitifully pathetic, needy deadbeat.

* AffablyEvil: Don Vittorio [=DiMaggio=] [[ApologeticAttacker apologizes]] as he is about to shoot Homer (believing him to be Krusty) and decides he won't do it on the condition of having the "Spin-Cycle Fantastic" trick performed for him (which Homer fails); then apologizes again when the real Krusty shows up at the last second, and ultimately lets them both live when they successfully pull off the trick together.

Added DiffLines:

** And subverted when Homer suggests that instead of performing that particular trick he could squirt Don Vittorio with his button (it was his major); it's the loop or death.

* IdleRich: Krusty lights a cigarette with a one dollar bill (later also with an original Superman comic[[note]]the very first issue of ''Action Comics''[[/note]] and a pearl necklace), then orders his assistants to "Put five thousand bucks on the Lakers. Hire Kenny G to play for me in the elevator. My house is dirty; buy me a clean one."
