* BaitAndSwitch: After Marge expresses a desire to go out to someplace special in her new Chanel suit, we sees an Italian opera performance, suggesting that the Simpsons went out. Then static appears on screen and a vacuum cleaner blocks the view, and the camera pans out to reveal that the opera is being broadcasted on the Simpsons' new TV while Marge goes about her usual chores (while still wearing her suit).
