* TerribleArtist: Kirk. He can't draw "dignity" well, and gets angry at Luanne for not being able to guess, which sets off the argument (see Toilet Seat Divorce). Later:
-->'''Kirk:''' ''[surprised]'' I... I... a divorce? Sure. Divorce. Hey, you got it, toots! And here's a picture even you can figure out! ''[draws a circle in a rectangle]'' It's a door! Use it!\\
'''Homer:''' That's a Door!?

* OhCrap: Kirk explains to Homer the signs of a potential divorce depends on the food you eat. One minute you are eating a delicious meal, the next you are thawing hot dogs in a sink. When Homer goes home he finds hot dogs thawing on the kitchen sink, so he obviously freaks out.
** Marge left them for Homer after he called to tell her he won't be with her that night like he promised.

* DownerEnding: Even after Kirk's heartfelt song, Luann still rejects him and has her boyfriend kick him out of the Simpson house. In this case, the downer ending was invoked by the writers because they didn't want to do the hokey, cliched ending where the divorced couple get back together.
** On the other hand, the ending for Marge and Homer is [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming incredibly sweet.]]
