* [[BigSisterInstinct Little Sister Instinct:]] Lisa enforces this trope full on when she finds out the truth about the stolen collection plate.
-->'''Bart:''' Give it up, Lis: she's a criminal mastermind. She's got 108 IQ, she reads at a 5th grade level, and...(sighs) her hair smells like red Fruit Loops.
-->'''Lisa:''' Yeah? Well I eat Fruit Loops for breakfast.



* HypocriticalHumor: When Bart was accused of stealing church money, Homer said he'd believe if Bart told him he didn't. Bart said he didn't and Homer not only refused to believe but also asked how Bart dared to lie. (Bart wasn't but, either way, Homer had just set a bad example by falsely claiming he'd believe Bart)

** Prior to that, Marge tells Bart he has to go to church "to learn morals and decency, and how to love your fellow man". Cut to Lovejoy reading a graphically violent passage.
*** And before that, she and the other parents captured the kids and even had Bart and Lisa in metal collars on a chain.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Subverted. At first, Jessica seems like the typical sweet preacher's daughter who happens to be attracted to a bad boy, but she turns out to be even worse than he is.

* ExplodingCalendar: The "crossing off days" variation is parodied. Bart resolves to avoid seeing Jessica for a while, and then he's seen marking several months' worth of days on his calendar. But then of course Marge comes in and tells him it's time for church - where Jessica will surely be.

* AesopAmnesia: Enforced. The creators state that in RealLife, it is very difficult for a person to change their ways--Jessica never learns that misbehaving isn't a good way to live and her dad never learns to actually discipline her when she behaves badly. Subverted with Bart--he's seemingly suckered in by Jessica into doing her chores, but in reality, he intends to do a bad job to get back at her.

Subverted Zig-zagged with Bart--he's seemingly suckered in by Bart. Jessica talks him into doing her chores, but in reality, punishment (cleaning the church stairs). While he only intends to do a bad job to get back at her. second-rate job, he's still wasting his time doing on this instead of just walking away.


Added DiffLines:

* ConspiracyTheorist: Reverend Lovejoy gets so desperate after the church money is found in Jessica's room that he accuses Bart of somehow sneaking his room into the Lovejoy house. Everyone else just stares blankly at him.


Added DiffLines:

* PyrrhicVictory: Bart laughs about sticking Jessica with a second-rate cleaning job of the church stairs. Of course, she's out having fun, while he's spending time scrubbing down stairs that don't even look particularly dirty to start with.

-->'''Skinner''': ''[to Bart]'' There's no such thing as Scotchtoberfest.\\
'''Willie''': There's not? Ya used me, Skinner! YA USED ME!

* AttackAttackRetreatRetreat: As the school's being evacuated, Willie says "If I don't save the wee turtles, who will?", and kicks his way into the science classroom...and moments later runs out covered with biting turtles, saying "Aah! Save me from the wee turtles! They were too quick for me!"

Save me from the wee turtles! They were too quick for me!"


Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: Ned Flanders is shown with the ability to sing like a woman when in church, very much like how he would [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl scream like a woman]] in "Bart of Darkness."

* RealityEnsues: Bart gets punched in the gut by Nelson for telling people he's dating Jessica, something she denies. Bart writhes on the ground for a few minutes, so Jessica tries to kiss him. Bart gets back up...only to fall on the ground still writhing. Being belted in the stomach isn't something you walk away from instantly.

Being belted in the stomach isn't something you walk away from instantly. According to the DVD commentary, the writers thought Bart still being in pain would be funnier than if he instantly started to leave with Jessica.

* BaitAndSwitch: While coasting down a ludicrously steep hill, Bart sees a jackknifed glue true. He assumes some of it has spilled and will therefore slow him down. Turns out that the glue ain't going nowhere. Then, when Bart runs over a single wheat grain and falls all the way down the mountain...
