* {{CallBack}}: Krusty's crappy "Mad About Shoe" sketch on "Krusty Komedy Klassics" is similar to the scene on "Brother From the Same Series" when Krusty appeared on "The Big-Eared Family" on ''Tuesday Night Live'' (only instead of grumbling on how the sketch goes on for 12 more minutes, he tells the audience that they're not going to like the "NYPD Shoe" sketch, since [[RecycledScript it's the same thing as "Mad About Shoe"]]).

* RecycledScript: There is a lot of "Homer's Enemy" in this episode with the fact that the Simpsons basically wear Sharry Bobbins down until she can't take it anymore.

* BoundAndGagged: Scratchy is tied to a chair and gagged with duck tape in ''Reservoir Cats.'' When he and Itchy dance at the end, Scratchy does not even bother to ungag himself.
* BrickJoke: At the end of the second act, Grampa accidentally flies off in Sherry Boppins' umbrella. Near the end, Grampa is seen having crashed into the house with the umbrella in his hand.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the MagicalNanny. The problems of the Simpson family go beyond what one caretaker can hope to achieve in a few days, and ultimately she leaves once the family explains they don't really care enough ''to'' change.
* HeelRealization: The family does feel bad when they drive Sherri to misery. But they don't really change. They just tell her it's kind of futile to expect them to.
* 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.

* MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting: When Bobbins teaches the kids how to clean up their rooms, she actually teaches tricks to make it seem clean. A song describes it as "the American way."
* OutOfCharacterMoment: The Simpson children in this episode are taken very much out of character for the plot when they are made far lazier in this episode than they have been shown before or since.

** Sherri Bobbins claims to be as original as [[WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse Rickey Rouse]] and [[WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck Monald Muck]].
** Having watched ''Film/MrsDoubtfire'', Homer feared some of the applicants (except for Kearney and Shari Bobbins) were men in drag.

** When Barney said goodbye to Sherri, he called her {{Superman}} (like he did with Adam West on season four's "Mr. Plow." He was close with the Adam West example, as Batman and Superman are part of the D.C. Comics universe).

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Not only was this a musical episode, but this was one of a few ''Simpsons'' episodes to get a G-rating in America [[note]]usually, ''The Simpsons'' is rated PG, but, with a lot of latter-day episodes trying to be as "edgy" as ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', the show has tipped over to TV-14 territory. Usually, it's the "Treehouse of Horror" episodes that get the TV-14 rating due to violence and bloody gore, but some canon episodes have gotten the rating due to drug humor, strong crude language, or sexual and non-sexual themes that are too much for a TV-PG rating[[/note]] and it originally aired on a Friday (from season six to now, ''The Simpsons'' always came on Sundays. Prior to that, it ping-ponged between Thursday nights and Sunday nights).
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Sherry decides to leave when she realizes the Simpsons are more or less satisfied with their dysfunction.

* AesopAmnesia: An extreme case-The Simpsons forget everything Sharri taught them ''the moment she leaves the house''.
* BreakTheMotivationalSpeaker: Or "breaking the magical nanny", in this case. It gets bad enough [[INeedAFreakingDrink that it drives Bobbins to alcoholism]].
* BoundAndGagged: Scratchy is tied to a chair and gagged with duck tape in ''Reservoir Cats''. When he and Itchy dance at the end, Scratchy does not even bother to ungag himself.

* BusCrash: At the end of the episode, [[spoiler: Sharri Bobbins is sucked into the turbine of an airplane and shredded to pieces as she's floating away.]] [[{{Irony}} Worst part is]], the Simpsons [[DistractedFromDeath have turned away]] and Homer is assuring Lisa [[WeWillMeetAgain that they will see her again some time in the future]].
