* LazyBum: For the sake of the episode Bart and Lisa become uncharacteristically lazy. So much so that they would rather call Marge while she's at the doctor's office to get them a glass of milk rather than get it themselves.

The third act brings it UpToEleven by having the whole family acting like this and using Bobbins as their manservant.

** The first couple of scenes of the third act have Sharri trying to bring a positive reaction out of the Simpsons by doing her magical song-and-dance routine from the previous two. Considering that said family couldn't keep it together so much as ten seconds after she walked out the door...

** The first couple of scenes of the third act have two acts are Sharri trying to bring doing the typical MagicalNanny schtick and thinking she has made a positive reaction out of change for the better on the Simpsons by doing family. The third act brings the fact down ''hard'' on her magical song-and-dance routine from head: this is a show where StatusQuoIsGod, and the previous two. Considering that said family couldn't keep "Status Quo" is "dysfunctional family". The Simpsons decide to break it together so much as ten seconds down to her in [[LyricalDissonance the same type of cheery-yet-cynically-lyrical song she had been singing throughout the episode]] ("Happy Just The Way We Are"), if nothing else but because it's the best way they can think of to point it out gently after she walked out the door...''driving her into alcoholic depression''.

* CutSong: The episode was originally going to feature Patty and Selma singing "We Love to Smoke", a parody of the ''Mary Poppins'' song "I Love to Laugh". This was included on the album ''Go Simpsonic with The Simpsons'' and the actual sequence of Sharri Bobbins taking the kids to see Patty and Selma and ending with the song (and Bart and Maggie coughing up cigarettes) is featured on the Simpsons season eight DVD set.
