* AdultFear: Due to several misunderstandings, child welfare accused Homer and Marge of negligence and their children are taken away from them. It was particularly heartbreaking when Homer and Marge wander in their house to each of their kids' empty bedrooms. And when Marge and Homer heard Bart's signature ring, they rushed down to the front door, faces joyful, only to see nobody was there.

* BaitAndSwitch: The Simpsons were told Bart, Lisa and Maggie would be taken to a place where Homer and Marge would never see them again. Then they're left at the next door house (which actually is a violation on the 100-foot restraining order Homer and Marge were given against their own children).

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGun: The "Stupid Baby" sign Bart puts on Lisa's back. It bites the family in the ass because Marge didn't get rid of it, and it somehow winds up on Maggie's back.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Rodd and Todd are so sheltered by Maude and Ned that they have no idea what ''blood'' is.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint:
** On both sides with the newspaper printing scene - Bart smiles innocently on handing Todd the paper reading "Todd Stinks", as if genuinely expecting them to go with it, and Rodd and Todd just seem confused by it, rather than offended.


Added DiffLines:

* HairTriggerTemper: During the parenting session, Homer goes into a rage because of Cletus saying he cut himself on a screen door, and starts trying to strangle him.


Added DiffLines:

* HumorDissonance: In-universe. Bart and Lisa cackle madly on seeing an episode of "Itchy & Scratchy" where Itchy violently murders Scratchy just to commit theft, while Rodd and Todd are completely traumatised.


Added DiffLines:

* KillItWithFire: Willie burns Bart's shirt on Principal Skinner's orders, to get rid of his lice. They squeak in terror before being incinerated.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Maggie's head twists around, ''Exorcist''-style.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Ned says he used to let Rodd and Todd watch ''My Three Sons'' before bedtime, but it got them "too worked up" to go to sleep.

** After regaining custody of the kids, Homer and Marge find out that the Flanders have taken their children to be baptized, which in this universe, amounts to being adopted and brainwashed.

* FunWithAcronyms: After Marge passes her drug test again (the first time she failed because the test mistakenly had her tested positive for crack and PCP), she says "The only thing I'm 'high' on is love. '''L'''ove for my '''S'''on and '''D'''aughter. Yup, [[ThatCameOutWrong a little LSD is all I need]]."
* HolyBurnsEvil: Homer takes a baptism for his kids to keep them from becoming Flanderses. It doesn't seem to do any lasting damage (except make Homer peaceful and knowledgeable of religious events, like St. Augustine of Hippo being converted by Ambrose of Milan), but the sound effect and Homer's demonic growl fit pretty well.
* ImColdSoCold: When Bart is discovered to have head lice on class picture day (as a result of playing with a [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkey]] Milhouse found), he comments "Nothing ever happens to Milhouse." We then see Milhouse standing there pale, wrapped in a blanket, muttering "So cold, so very, very cold."

* SocietyMarchesOn: The Flanders' car has a bumper sticker reading "I ♥ YOUR KIDS" - fine for the joke they're telling in the episode, but these days that'd be read as something else ''entirely''.

** Grandpa. He's confronted about being left with the kids for a few hours and getting them taken away and just says "Oh bitch bitch bitch!" and walks off. Is it any wonder Homer put him in a home?
