* BaitAndSwitch: Marge and the kids are watching the live police stand-off on TV. At one point, Homer bursts out of the theater and the cops shoot him until he falls to the ground. Marge and the kids scream, and Kent Brockman says, "A bloody end for Homer Simpson...... is just one of several possible outcomes according to our computer simulation. Now, here's how it would look if the police killed him with a barrage of baseballs!"

* ActorAllusion: In one scene, Larry says "I don't get no regard, no regard at all!", a play on Rodney Dangerfield's CatchPhrase "I don't get no respect at all!"
** There are also numerous references to Dangerfield's film ''Film/{{Caddyshack}}'', including the scene where Larry attends a cocktail party with Mr. Burns as well as the ending party, which is set to Music/{{Journey}}'s "Any Way You Want It."


Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Dangerfield is seriously channeling his ''Film/{{Caddyshack}}'' character here.


Added DiffLines:

* InVinoVeritas: Smithers thinks Larry's odd behavior is due to his "truly heroic intake of cocktails", and indeed, Larry drinks more than he likely should.


Added DiffLines:

* ThisLoserIsYou: Larry can match Homer in this area, so much that he ''admits'' to being a lazy slob.

* BerserkButton: As Mr. Burns puts it, no-one steals from him, even if they steal something he doesn't care about. It's the principle of the thing.

* DumbassHasAPoint: Homer tried to point out to Marge that he couldn't take Larry back to Burns because it was broad daylight and there were cops all over the city, but Marge said "No excuses". It wasn't until she saw Homer on the news did she realize he was right.
