* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Homer's reaction to Bart's theft has a rare instance of him being utterly ''outraged'' (and not in the normal hammy style Homer usually has, either).

* OffModel: Marge is missing part of her left arm when she and Homer are chastising Bart for shoplifting.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Homer's reaction to Bart's theft has a rare instance of him being utterly ''outraged'' (and not in the normal hammy style Homer usually has, either). Granted, he forgets what he's angry at Bart about when he gets sidetracked.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Marge buys ''Lee Carvallo's Putting Challenge'' because she thought it was the one Bart wanted.
* EasilyForgiven: While Marge is initially upset with Bart's activities, she does actually start acting like her usual self toward him before the reveal of the picture.

** When Milhouse has Bart kicked out of the Van Houten house for "swearing", Bart can be heard saying "dammit, I wasn't swearing" as Luann shoves him out.

As Bart is led away after being caught shoplifting:



* LimitedWardrobe: Zigzagged, Nelso is shown wearing a turtleneck instead of his usual shirt.



* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Homer's reaction to Bart's theft has a rare instance of him being utterly ''outraged'' (and not in the normal hammy style Homer usually has, either).



** Following Bart's arrest, Marge temporarily loses all respect for him. He decides to make amends by getting her a special Christmas gift of a framed photo of himself (which he ''does'' pay for, keeping the receipt to prove it), hoping that by doing this he'll earn his mother's forgiveness. And in fact, [[spoiler: Marge does begin respecting him again, and to show her gratitude for the holiday photo gives Bart a video game wrapped in Christmas paper, saying that the store told her it was the game all the boys want. Bart eagerly opens it, expecting to see ''Bonestorm''--but instead it's a boring golf-putting game. But of course: no matter how good or contrite you are, if you're 10 years old, your parents are not going to buy you a game containing graphic violence, ''especially'' if you were willing to break the law for it]].

* {{Jerkass}}: Detective Don Brodka. He has every right to be pissed about Bart's shoplifting, (attempt to) notify his parents, and ban him from the store...but when Bart and his family come back to get their picture taken, Brodka could have at least waited until their picture was done before he chastises the boy again. But he doesn't, and the picture shows a husky arm grabbing Bart.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues:
** Bart sees a TV commercial for a wildly popular and ultra-violent video game called ''Bonestorm'', and decides he wants it for Christmas. The musclebound Santa Claus who is the ad's pitchman demands in a "professional wrestler" voice, "Tell your parents: 'Buy me ''Bonestorm'' or GO TO HELL!" Bart walks into the kitchen and tries just that--and it doesn't work. Instead, Marge scolds him for using profanity... and Homer scolds him [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking for not saying "please."]]
** Having no money of his own to buy ''Bonestorm'', Bart goes down to the shopping center and sees some other kids stealing merchandise. After struggling against temptation, he finally gives in to it and swipes a copy of ''Bonestorm'' from the rack. He hides it under his coat and dodges the lenses of the security cameras, somehow managing to make it outside undetected. As he steps out into the street, he gloats about [[KarmaHoudini having gotten away with his crime]]--only to be immediately grabbed by the store's security guard, who had apparently witnessed the theft on a security camera.

*** In that same scene, when Bart walks in with his present, he's hiding it in his coat. Naturally, a distrusting Marge and Homer immediately assume that he's stolen something else and try to catch and punish him.
