* HeroicSacrifice: Bob cuts the wire for the dynamite he's holding onto, keeping Cecil from blowing up the dam but sending Bob and Bart plummeting to their doom. Luckily Bob lands on a pipe, saving him, unluckily the dam is so poorly built it breaks anyway.

* {{Irony}}: Cecil needed a ride to Krustylu Studios for the Sideshow auditions and that was Bob's only motive to be there. Bob got the job coveted by Cecil because Krusty decided to use him to show that the PieInTheFace gag is "only funny when the sap's got dignity."

* ReformedButRejected: Double-subverted. Bart and Lisa naturally assume Bob's up to no good, but after he foils Cecil's scheme they accept that he has truly reformed and are even willing to vouch for him to Chief Wiggum. [[MiscarriageOfJustice But he's still put back in prison]]. Ouchies!

Added DiffLines:

* CaptainObvious: Cecil, after revealing he's framed Bob, tells him he's leaving Bob and the kids inside the dam to kill them when he destroys it. Bob dryly points out how obvious that is.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: On revealing he's the embezzeler, Cecil says he'll never be suspected thanks to that criminal with the grudge against Springfield working at the dam. Bob thinks he's talking about Cousin Merle, who "ain't quite right" and has been having cash problems lately.


Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: Cover-alls that don't ''quite'' "cover all". Cue hillbilly butt-shot.


Added DiffLines:

-->'''Bob:''' Oh, I see. When it's one of ''my'' plans you can't foil it fast enough, but when ''Cecil'' tries to kill you, it's "hopeless, utterly utterly hopeless".


Added DiffLines:

* HumiliationConga: It looks like Bob might snap back to villainy thanks to having to work with at the dam with Cecil's gang of incompetent workers, which is clearly straining his nerves.


Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut:
** Krusty's prison performance is based on that of Johnny Cash's. He's even dressed all in black and playing on a guitar.
** The title card immediately after the first act break pretty much tells the viewer, yeah, they're ripping off Bob and Cecil's dynamic from ''Fraiser''.
** In their discussion, Cecil and Bob agree that the only civilization in history that would consider chief hydrological and hydrodynamical engineer a calling were the Capadocians (they were big on underground cities, and water-works).
** When Bart obscures Cecil's vision and asks "guess who", he thinks it's Maris (Niles Crane's never-seen wife. Once again, we remind you that David Hyde Pierce played Cecil and Niles.)

'''Bob''': I've been in prison, Cecil. I'll be happy just as long as it doesn't taste like orange drink fermented under a radiator.\\
'''Cecil''': That would be the Latour then.
