* {{Foreshadowing}}: Some people may find it odd how Cecil later teams up with Bob to kill Bart in , but the finishing line is Cecil calmly asking when they will bring the menus after the WimpFight they just had. Given that that episode came out ''eleven years'' later, it's quite likely that all that time in jail has given them time to sort out their differences. After all, since they're essentially an evil [[Series/{{Frasier}} Frasier and Niles Crane]], it's a pretty safe bet that they will have much to talk about together.

* ActorAllusion: The entire episode could be called an extended ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' reference, but the scene when the brothers arrive at Cecil's apartment even borrows the title cards. In fact, the actors who voice Bob and Cecil portrayed another set of Brothers in Frasier, hence the title.

* BittersweetEnding: Cecil's plot is exposed and he's carted off to prison for it. But Bob's HeelFaceTurn is rejected and he's sent back as well, despite being innocent and saving Lisa and Bart, and is doomed to revert to his evil ways. Oh, and the dam breaks, flooding Springfield.
