* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: Eating jagged metal doesn't cause appendicitis. It would have given Bart horrible internal bleeding and possibly killed him, but that's not very family-friendly, is it? It doesn't help that an actual medical consultant (who was related to Al Jean) was called in for the show and the writers had to resort to a ridiculous excuse to make Bart come down with appendicitis.

* BittersweetEnding: Bleeding Gums Murphy is dead, but Lisa gives him a major tribute and even shares a duet with him.



* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Krusty immediately hits on and asks out Ms. No-Means-No. He tries to save face by saying he has dinner with all his employees, only for Sideshow Mel to say they've never spoken off the set. Krusty then tries to blame this whole mess on his Percodan addiction (which he says rots the brain), only to learn that's his show's newest sponsor.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Fresh out of surgery, Bart points out that Homer didn't believe him about his stomach pain. Homer angrily strangles him for that.



* IgnoredEpiphany: Hibbert hears how Bleeding Gums had a brother who grew up to be a doctor and always laughed at inappropriate times. He responds by saying he had an older brother that became a jazz musician.
-->'''Hibbert:''' Oh, well. Bye-bye.



* LongLostRelative: Apparently, Bleeding Gums and Dr. Hibbert are brothers... [[MissedHimByThatMuch not that either of them realize it]].

to:

* LongLostRelative: Apparently, Bleeding Gums and Dr. Hibbert are brothers... [[MissedHimByThatMuch not that either of them realize it]]. This is in addition to [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS2E15OhBrotherWhereArtThou another episode]] suggesting there's another lost brother out there in the world.



* MeaningfulName: We learn the school snake is named Lumpy... mere moments before we see that it's ''swallowed several children''.



-->'''Homer:''' Oh, I blew it again. ''(Maggie puts her pacifier into Homer's mouth)'' Mmm...

to:

-->'''Homer:''' --->'''Homer:''' Oh, I blew it again. ''(Maggie puts her pacifier into Homer's mouth)'' Mmm...



* NotSoSimilar: When Homer talks to Lisa, he recalls how she was sad about Snowball I dying. Unfortunately, the point he builds to is that, since adopting a new cat made her feel better, they can just go to the pound and get a new jazz musician. Lisa doesn't take this well.



* PetTheDog:
** Maggie offers Lisa her pacifier to try to cheer her up. She does so again with Homer later in the scene after he screws up.
** Subverted when Homer and Bart each talk to Lisa about Bleeding Gums Murphy's death. They try to be supportive and cheer her up, but they mess up for different reasons.
** Played straight when Bart buys Lisa the ''Sax on the Beach'' album.
* {{Reincarnation}}: Bart says he believes this is what happens when people die.
-->'''Bart:''' I'm gonna come back as a butterfly.\\
'''Lisa:''' Why?\\
'''Bart:''' Because no one ever suspects the butterfly. ''[laughs]''



-->'''Crosby''': "Jazz is like the New Coke. [[TemptingFate It'll be around forever]]."

to:

* WhatTheHellHero: After Bart wakes up from surgery, the family is all relieved.
-->'''Homer:''' Oh, this is wonderful. You're alive!\\
'''Bart:''' No thanks to you, Homer!
