* DesignatedDriver: Moe tells all of the arriving patrons that, since it's St. Patrick's Day, it's going to be the biggest drinking day of the year. Moe then asks for the Designated Drivers to identify themselves, then tells them, "Beat it. I got no time for cheapskates."

* BlatantLies: After escaping Banner, Homer insists to Marge that nothing happened to the car, despite the obvious damage to it. Averted in the next scene when Marge asks why he has so many bowling balls.
-->'''Homer:''' I'm not gonna lie to you, Marge. So long. ''[leaves]''



** Obnoxious as they were, the anti-alcohol women's group were right. A 10-year-old got drunk during the parade because someone fired alcohol into the crowd, and Wiggum was brazenly not enforcing the prohibition law [[note]]a law everyone thought at the time was in effect[[/note]] by getting drunk at a speakeasy.



** Also, the anti-alcohol women's group who complained about Bart being drunk and forcing Prohibition on everybody never got punished.



-->'''Banner:''' What kind of pet shop is filled with rambunctious yahoos and hot jazz music at 1:00AM?\\
'''Moe:''' Um, the best damn pet shop in town.\\
''[Crowd cheers]''



* PoliceAreUseless

to:

* PoliceAreUselessPoliceAreUseless: Why Wiggum is tossed off the force. We also get a gag of an officer who keeps his badge in his mouth.



* SkewedPriorities: Banner shuts down Fat Tony's operation immediately.
-->'''Fat Tony:''' Okay, you win. From now on, we'll stick to smuggling heroin.\\
'''Banner:''' See that you do.



* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: The clerk who unveiled the old Prohibition law especially because he never bothered to read the whole parchment and learn the law was no longer in effect. It would be a miracle if he managed to retain his job after making such a horrible blunder.

Added DiffLines:

* CantHoldHisLiquor: The plot gets kicked off by Bart accidentally ingesting a truckload of booze fired from a Duff parade float and getting drunk. ''In 5 seconds.'' You ''could'' justify it by the fact that he's a kid, so he doesn't have any experience with the stuff, and his dad's a noted alcoholic, but even then, he probably only would've been drunk in a few minutes, not seconds.

* MoralGuardians: The anti-alcohol women's group, again.
