* NoodleIncident: Apparently no town meeting in Springfield has ended without someone digging up a corpse. What were those other times? Surely they can't mean the town meetings seen in "Marge vs. The Monorail," "A Star is Burns," and "Who Shot Mr. Burns, Part 1," because those didn't have that.

* HiddenInPlainSight: Jebediah's silver tongue Hollis had hid it as a cowboy in one of the display cases of the Jebediah Springfield Museum. The 'plain sight' aspect is slightly questionable, since no one (except Lisa) ever visits the museum.
