* CombatPragmatist / DirtyCoward: The battle being reenacted at Fort Springfield is one from the American Civil War. In 1864, the Ninth Bearded Infantry were just standing around when the troops they were fighting crested the hill they were standing at the bottom of. The enemy troops were surrendering unconditionally, many of them waving white flags. All of them were injured, some sporting bandages, others leaning on crutches; one soldier was on a stretcher. A soldier spoke for the group, saying that they were sick and "need leeches, and hacksaws to cut off [their] gangrenous limbs". How did the Ninth Bearded Infantry take to this surrender? By ''charging up the hill, and brutally finishing their enemies off!'' And what's worse, they're ''celebrated'' for this! And the children who were watching the reenactment cheered!

** Bart, in a slightly different sense. Not being in school makes him wreck havock elsewhere and starts flying kite at night to add to the CreepyChild vibe.

* NonIndicativeName: The episode is called "The PTA Disbands," yet it focuses on a teacher's strike. Lampshaded when a person horrifyingly yells [[TitleDrop "The PTA has disbanded!"]], and jumps out the nearby window, before Flanders explains that the PTA has ''not'' disbanded, prompting that man to jump back through the window, dusting himself off.[[note]](The writer's original pitch actually ''was'' about the PTA threatening to disband, but it was changed to the strike plot after the showrunners thought the original idea was too dull)[[/note]]
