* TookALevelInJerkass: Bart, though this is justified, as he is offended over the fact that his little sister is called to boss him around. Plus, he apologizes in the end, so it ends happily. Still, the fact that Bart acted like a jerk was the reason why this episode was panned when it premiered.

* EasilyForgiven: ...and yet, the very next day, Flanders and Hibbert both call Lisa and asks her to babysit their children (even after Lisa insists on asking them both about whether or not he believes she won't get coked up and do horrible things to them, Hibbert just stays silent for a {{Beat}} and then asks when she can get to his home).

* MathematiciansAnswer: When Hibbert calls Lisa to ask her to look after his kids (the day after he became one of the biggest criers of her being a bad babysitter), Lisa insists on asking him if he's not afraid she will not perform something as horrible to them that what they assume she did to Bart. After a Beat, Hibbert pretty much dodges the question and just asks when can she get to his home.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Positive example as Janey lists the accomplishments of the ''Babysitter Twins'' as stopping counterfeiters, rescuring the President, and making four dollars for their work.
