* LostAesop: Lisa Simpson mainly due to a combination of AudienceAwarenessAdvantage and RecycledScript. This episode is often described as a poor mans "Summer of 4 Ft. 2" in that they both dump Lisa into a new location, talk about why she canít have friends with Bart ultimately learning how to be supportive. Except that in this episode the audience is bombarded with scene after scene of everyone being mean to Lisa making it hard to wonder what the point of the episode is. Lisa overcoming social adversity is pretty much every Lisa story line. While the scenario of Lisa finding out how strong she is hard to take seriously [[SpaceWhaleAesop when the challenge is so ridiculously over the top]].

* {{Jerkass}}: The cadets act like this towards Lisa on account of her being a girl. They also do this to Bart at first. The worst part is when Lisa nearly falls off the Eliminator and they chant "Drop! Drop! Drop!", as if they want her to fall to her death. Damn...
* KidsAreCruel: The cadets' treatment of Lisa and initially Bart falls into this territory.

** Actually no, they didn't. It just so happened that the semester ended.
*** They never really hated her because of her sex. The only one who actually freaked out over her gender was the Drill sergeant the students were upset about the PositiveDiscrimination given to Lisa on account of her gender.
