* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In response to a question about Smithers, Troy shows a montage of his AmbiguouslyGay moments... then states he's simply an unmarried white male, presently residing in Springfield.



* TakeThat: There's one to the O.J. Simpson criminal trial's jury, when it's noted that the Smithers-as-culprit ending to "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" could not work because it would require ignoring "all the Simpson [=DNA=] evidence", which was what the jury was accused of doing.

-->''And that would be downright nutty.''
* TakeThatUs:
** Matt Groening is potrayed as an old, bald, gun-toting maniac who shoots at the camera crew who tries to interview him.
** Troy's reaction to the earliest Simpson's episode is stunned silence.
** At the end of the deleted scenes, Troy's shown having fallen asleep, and has to be prodded with a stick to wake up.
-->'''Troy:''' If that's what they cut out, what they leave in must be pure gold!

** Notably, the producers tried to avoid the usual clip show tropes as much as possible, with the inclusion of previously-unreleased deleted scenes and the rare Tracey Ullman shorts (which, pilot short aside, aren't even available on DVD outside of this clip show). As Troy [=McClure=] points out, Act Two's DeletedScenes montage is arguably a DefiedTrope.

* BlatantLies: The first trivia question that played before & after commercials say that the cash register says "[=NRA4EVER=]" when Maggie is scanned, while in the actual opening around the time when the episode was aired, it says "$847.63" instead. And in the second trivia question "Which two popular characters have died in the past year?", with the answer being Bleeding Gums Murphy & Dr. Marvin Monroe, but the show says that the fans are "wrong, they were never popular".
