Added DiffLines:

* RiggedContest: The mayoral debates have Barlow giving Bob easy questions from a nonexistent "Les Wynan", and Quimby a rambling, disturbing question about his family being kidnapped and murdered by thugs that's somehow about the budget.


Added DiffLines:

** The "It's about the budget, sir" question appears to be a reference to the 1988 presidential debate, where Bernard Shaw asked Michael Dukakis if he would support the death penalty for a criminal that had murdered and raped his wife.

** Homer gets thrown out of Riverdale for reasons unknown. When he drives Bart and Lisa to meet the unknown informant in the parking garage, Homer stays in the car, reading ''Franchise/ArchieComics'', muttering, "Stuck-up Riverdale punks! Think they're too good for me."

Added DiffLines:

* ALighterShadeOfBlack: Quimby is a sleazy and corrupt politician, but at least he isn't making it his mission to destroy the Simpsons' lives like Bob is, which is why Lisa and Bart try to campaign for him.

* MadeOfIron: Homer somehow was able to cushion a wrecking ball from hitting its house (similar to what happened on ''The Simpsons Movie'', only Homer actually felt pain when he hit [[VisualPun the rock and a bar called "A Hard Place"]]. On this episode, Homer doesn't even flinch).

* SingleTargetSexuality: Subverted. Smithers alludes to being gay when in previous episodes, it was heavily implied that he was either sexually confused or straight, but had a crush on his boss.

* TitleOnlyOpening: The second FOX airing and the DVD version goes from the ''Simpsons'' cloud title straight to the executive credits on the TV, while the original airing and the syndicated version had couch gags that were used other episodes (the original airing had the couch gag from "Boy Scoutz 'n The Hood"[[note]]the one where the Simpsons' eyes are floating in the dark[[/note]] while the syndicated version had the oft-used one from "Rosebud"[[note]]the one where The Simpsons run in and find an identical version of themselves on the couch[[/note]]). This is one of the few times they did this after season one and before the high-def episodes from season 20 on (barring the special episodes, like the ''Treehouse of Horror'' episodes and the two Troy [=McClure=]-hosted episodes: "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" and "The Simpsons Spinoff Showcase.")
