* HereWeGoAgain: Subverted and parodied. After Bart and Lisa thwart Bob, Grandpa rides up on a motorcycle and says that he's going to "haul ass to Lollapalooza!" (a CallBack to earlier in the episode, where a parody of Roseanne used the exact same dialog). The rest of the Simpsons exclaim "Here we go again!", with Marge lagging a little behind and obviously less than enthusiastic.

* DarkerAndEdgier: After his LighterAndSofter [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E5SideshowBobRoberts appearance]], ol' Bob is getting back into the swing of things.

Added DiffLines:

* BitingTheHandHumor: Considering the episode is one long parody of/jab at television, there's a fair number of jokes as FOX's expense.


Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor:
** As Marge tells her kids not to panic while fleeing the base...
-->'''Lisa:''' Mom, ''mooom'', you're stepping on my heels and knocking off my shoes!
-->'''Marge:''' ''(panicked)'' We can always get more shoes, move move move!
** As the kids are stuck with Bob in the Duff blimp, Bart tries stalling for time by flattering Bob, who is initially undeterred as he knows better by now. Bart then laments he should have known Bob was too smart to fall for that; whereupon Bob does fall for the compliment, giving the police ample time to find them.


Added DiffLines:

* ToilerHumor: As the soldiers search the entire base for Sideshow Bob, they find Grandpa hiding in one of the toilets:
-->'''Grandpa:''' This elevator only goes to the basement. And someone made an ''awful'' mess down there...
