* LesserStar: Parodied. Lisa takes solace in that there's nothing wrong being the second-best at anything.

They get booed off the stage, and she wakes up [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] the FridgeLogic of why people would show up to their concert just to boo them.

* MadeOfIron: Milhouse jumps down a raging waterfall to escape the FBI. The next we see him, his glasses and left arm are broken, but that's about it.


Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: The FBI agents aren't trying to kill Milhouse, but they're pretty blasé about driving their car right through an occupied school-ground at lunchtime. That said, they also say they'll ''try'' to take him alive. They're not bothered either way.

** In Marge's pirate fantasy, she asks the pirate embracing her if the earring in his right ear means he's a pirate, and he answers with a "Kinda" that's comes off in a "Sure, why not" tone. Wearing an earring on the right side is (or once was) a sign that a man was gay, and one of many euphemisms/homophobic slurs for a gay man is "butt pirate."
