* MathematiciansAnswer: When Dr. 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.

* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: Lisa

to:

* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: LisaLisa, and as is typical of the Trope, the rest of the town automatically assumes the absolute worst of her attempts to make things right.


Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: Lisa's reputation as a perfectly reliable babysitter is completely nuked flat overnight by Bart's mischief, but Bart apologizes for doing so and there is a chance she will be able to rebuild it... or maybe Springfield (as is typical of it) forgot their condemnation of her as fast as they placed it on her.


Added DiffLines:

* EasilyCondemned: Lisa's public humiliation at the climax happens because everybody in Springfield, who Lisa had babysat for repeatedly throughout the episode and had nothing more to give than praises, immediately assumes the absolute worst (up to and including her being on drugs) and believes her to be a "bad babysitter"...
* EasilyForgiven: ...and yet, the very next day, Dr. Hibbert calls Lisa and asks her to babysit his children (even after Lisa insists on asking 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).


Added DiffLines:

* NotWhatItLooksLike: A combination of these (mostly the result of Bart being a jerk) ends up resulting in the public humiliation of Lisa and people thinking she's some kind of psychotic drug junkie and overall ''bad'' babysitter.

* DudeWheresMyReward: An in-universe example. In the ''Babysitter Twins'' books that Lisa and Janie were reading, the Babysitters were only rewarded with ''four dollars'' for saving the President's daughter.

* MistakenForPrankCall: When Bart is unconscious, Lisa tries calling 9-1-1, but they refuse to take it [[CryingWolf because Bart called earlier about "a sisterectomy, a case of severe butt rot, and a leprechaun fight."]]
