* {{Eagleland]]: Present and accounted for, although spoofed all the same (to give examples: Bart moons the Australians with "Don't Tread On Me" written on his butt, Homer sings about missing his country when he sees the embassy's anti-coriolis effect machine, and every machine that has "Made In The U.S.A." written on it that appears is AwesomeButImpractical).

* DisproportionateRetribution: A conversed trope due to InUniverse ValuesDissonance.While Bart had committed an embarrassing crime, it was minor enough that just saying he was sorry (with a hefty amount of faked sincerity) was enough... even Homer (with his strangling RunningGag) thinks that performing a LiteralAssKicking of Bart's rear with a jackboot so huge that it covers the wearer's knee is too much (and gets angry at the government officer that "helpfully" decided to not inform the Simpsons of what the Australians wanted to do, because otherwise they would not have agreed to come... and he also mentioned that the U.S. government was willing to ''toss Bart in Federal Prison'' to appease the Australians, before the apology option came up).

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Ironically, the "fact" that kicked off the entire episode was wrong: while the Coriolis effect is real, it's too weak to affect the direction of your average draining vortex, which is far more affected by stuff like the shape of the recipient, meaning the entire plot is just an excuse for The Simpsons to wreak havoc in another country.

** Bart's joke: "I hear a dingo eating your baby" is a reference to ''Film/EvilAngels'' (better known as ''A Cry in the Dark''), based on the real life 1980 mysterious disappearance of baby Azaria Chamberlain. His mother claimed he was snatched away by a dingo, fell under suspicion of having murdered him herself, but during her jail time new evidence did point out that the child might have been eaten by a dingo after all.
** When the plane lands in Australia we see rubble from Skylab under the airport's ground.
** The Australian showing Bart a spoon rather a knife is a reference to Film/CrocodileDundee, where the knife welding robber change his tune when he saw Dundee's large Bowie knife. Dundee already appeared earlier in this episode during the slideshow the American representative displayed.
** Wez from ''Film/MadMax 2: The Road Warrior'' can be seen in the crowd chasing after The Simpsons.

* TheEndOrIsIt: Upon seeing that the offspring of Bart's frog are eating all of Australia's crops, Lisa notes "That's what happens when you introduce a species to an ecosystem that can't handle them." The camera then pans to a koala hanging on the helicopter's skid, and [[StaggeredZoom zooms ominously]] on its face.
