* BigEater: "The Simpsons' 138th Episode Spectacular" reveals a DeletedScene showing that as soon as they returned home from the post office, Homer starts scarfing down on all the candy Mona sent him over the years.
-->'''Mona:''' Homer, please. You don't have to wolf down that 25-year-old candy just to make me happy.\\
'''Homer:''' But it won't make you unhappy, right?

* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: Marge is further dumbfounded by the strange claims of Homer's "death" when Patty and Selma gleefully come over, having prepared his tombstone, with the inscription "We are richer for having lost him".

* JerkassHasAPoint: Abe was a pretty nasty father, but his anger toward Mona, for abandoning ''Homer'', is somewhat understandable. She just rolls her eyes; though he ''was'' a lousy husband as well. Also, Mona reveals she tried to keep contact with Homer even while on the run, only her care packages were deliberately not being delivered due to the postal workers [[DisproportionateRetribution pissed at not getting tips during the holidays]].

After faking his own death and getting the mistake cleared up at the town courthouse, Homer makes a discovery: his mother, Mona (who supposedly died when Homer was a kid), is still alive, but the joyous reunion (at the cemetery after Homer discovers that the grave that allegedly belonged to his mom is, in fact, the grave of writer Walt Whitman) is cut short when the FBI comes after Mona for something she did in the 1960s, which is connected to Mr. Burns and is why she abandoned Abe and Homer.

* ObnoxiousInLaws: Marge's first reaction upon learning she had a mother-in-law was commenting she couldn't live vicariously through her friends who do have in-laws, though this is averted, as Mona is actually nice to Marge and the kids. Though she was concern about Homer spending time with someone who walked out on him when he was a kid.

* AnimationBump: All over the place, given it's a David Silverman helmed episode. The most obvious stand outs being Homer's faked death and the scenes immediately following it.

* MoodSwinger:
--> '''Mr. Burns''': Smithers, who was that corpse?\\
'''Smithers''': ''(crying)'' Homer Simpson, sir. One of the finest, bravest men ever to grace Sector 7G. ''(normal)'' I'll cross him off the list.
