Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

** 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.

Bart is shipped off to military school after a particularly destructive prank (lining up 15 police bullhorns and unleashing a soundwave that shatters all the glass in town) -- and Lisa tags along (despite that the military school is boys-only and the other cadets don't take kindly to change) after finding public school education has become a grind.

* ParentalFavoritism: Marge and Homer send ''Lisa'' a cassette intended to comfort her yet they don't send Bart anything, not even considering his feelings about how he is at the school.

* ParentalFavoritism: Marge and Homer send ''Lisa'' a cassette intended to comfort her yet they don't send Bart anything, not even considering his feelings about how he is at the school. Possibly justified by the fact that Lisa is there by choice, while Bart is there as punishment for causing large amounts of property damage.

* MortonsFork: As Bart and Lisa are forced to do pushups, Lisa is asked "Don't girls like doing pushups in the mud?". Lisa, in turn, asks [[GenreSavvy "Is there any answer I can give that won't result in more push-ups?"]], to which, after much deliberation by the other cadets, is "No."
