* VitriolicBestBuds: Nelson and Martin, sort of. Nelson makes it clear he can't stand Martin, but still sheepishly saves him from one of the Shelbyville kids (though not before explaining he wouldn't normally).

* ChekhovsClassroom: Subverted. Early in the episode, Ms. Krabappel is teaching Roman numerals, which would come in handy for Bart later when he is trapped in the Shelbyville zoo and finds himself in front of several doors marked with Roman numerals, only one of which - the one marked seven - is the exit and all the others have tigers on the other side - except that he didn't pay any attention and figures out what seven is in Roman numerals in a completely unrelated way (by using the ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' films as reference).

* MirrorUniverse / SimilarSquad: Shelbyville is a full-on copy of Springfield, with counterparts to many of its major citizens and points of interest. Bart and his friends all had Shelbyville counterparts, although they weren't so much evil (since Bart is not exactly good) as just antagonistic to our heroes. Milhouse and his counterpart even made friends.
