* CrisisOfFaith: The entire episode, where Ned's faith in God is tested when his house is destroyed, his business is looted and he [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech screams at his friends]] after their attempt to repair his home fails.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: If you look closely in the panning shot of the mental hospital rooms, one of the mental patients is a caricature of ''Simpsons'' writer John Swartzwelder ([[BrickJoke and in a later scene, someone has a protest sign that reads, "Free John Swartzwelder!"]]) and another is Lucille Botz (The Babysitter Bandit from season one's "Some Enchanted Evening," sating viewers' claims that Lucille is a KarmaHoudini, as she is now caught and either copped an insanity plea or was revealed off-screen to be criminally insane).

* TakeThat: Considering how much Creator/MattGroening hated [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E18AStarIsBurns "A Star is Burns"]], it shouldn't be surprising that [[WesternAnimation/TheCritic Jay Sherman]] is shown as one of the patients at Calmwood Memorial Hospital, saying everything stinks.

* TranquilFury: Ned yells at everybody else during his rant, but when he gets to Homer he coldly tells him "You are the worse human being I have ever met". [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Homer believes he had gotten off pretty easy.]]
* UngratefulBastard: Ned commits himself because he ''regards himself'' as one.

* AbusiveParents: Completely inverted in Ned's case. His parents didn't use ''any'' discipline at all, and as it turned out, this was just as bad as the played straight Trope.



* CallBack: Also in the hospital is Ms. Botz from "Some Enchanted Evening".



* ComicallyMissingThePoint: After ripping on everyone else, Ned turns to Homer and quietly tells him "you are the worst human being I have ever met." Homer's response: "Hey, I got off pretty easy."
