* BrokenAesop: Kirk and Luann Van Houten's divorce in was all just one big Aesop about Homer needing to respect his wife, which is what Kirk tells Homer after losing his home, his job, and his car. But the way losing Luann caused those was [[DeusAngstMachina utterly contrived]]: he lost his home because he apparently got absolutely nothing in the divorce settlement, he was fired ''[[GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity for being single]]'' ([[ArtisticLicenseLaw which is actually discrimination and grounds for Kirk to sue]]), an earlier comment from Luann also heavily implies [[ItsPersonal his employer was]] [[ObnoxiousInLaws her father]], and his car was stolen by a woman he met on the rebound who claims to be on the music business (which ''was'' his fault, but was more general incompetence as he was dumb enough to hand over his keys to someone he just met while waiting in a bar).
* CallBack: The flashback of Homer and Marge's quickie wedding at Shotgun Pete's from season three's "I Married Marge," along with a new scene where Homer buys Marge a Carvel ice cream cake shaped like a whale.
