* ContinuityNod: When "Rory Bellows" was swimming from his boat to the shore, his face colors melted, revealing his "Krusty" face, which goes with the revelation on "Homer's Triple Bypass" that Krusty's "clown make-up" was not make-up (which had something to do with his heart condition), but contadicts "Krusty Gets Busted" and "Brush With Greatness," which reveal that Krusty's clown make-up is temporary and he doesn't wear it when he's off-camera (which the writers stopped doing because they didn't want people thinking Krusty the Clown was Homer Simpson in disguise[[note]]which the writers originally wanted to do to show that Bart respects Krusty more than Homer, but it would have caused a lot of continuity issues[[/note]]).

** He ''does'', however, learn not to commit tax fraud, as [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/TheSimpsonsS9E20TheTroubleWithTrillions a later episode]] shows him filing his tax returns... and expressing frustration that he waited until the last possible moment to do so.

'''Krusty:''' Yeah! I'm not gonna let those guys hog all the respect while I'm out here in this stinking tub. ''(dives into the water and swims to shore)'' That's just what those eggheads want! Well, forget it poindexter, 'cause Krusty's back in town!

* BrokenAesop: Krusty got into trouble because he committed tax fraud, but since the IRS is the DesignatedVillain, his decision to commit insurance fraud at the end of the episode in order to end his tax woes is seen as a good thing. Notably, at no point in the episode does anyone tell him "Well, you should have paid your taxes."

Notably, at no point in the episode does anyone tell him "Well, you should have paid your taxes." The closest Krusty comes to realizing this was when he initially refuses to return, saying "I learned that I don't need money to be happy."

Added DiffLines:

* EntitledBastard: Krusty never shows remorse for his tax fraud, nobody directly calls him out on it (except the IRS, but they're [[DesignatedVillain treated as the bad guys for doing it]]), and he behaves as though he's an innocent victim when the IRS gives him his [[KickTheSonOfABitch just desserts]] for his crimes.


Added DiffLines:

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: See BrokenAesop and EntitledBastard. Bart's exposure of Krusty's tax evasion is treated as a bad thing, and Bart feels terrible about it while Krusty wallows in self-pity throughout the episode, but tax evasion is a serious crime that Krusty should never have committed, thus he has no right to [[NeverMyFault feel sorry for himself]].
