* YankTheDogsChain: This episode is not kind to the Simpsons family. First the town gives them a generous donation of $15,000 to make up for the presents the family lost. It becomes AllForNothing when the family blows it all on a new car and loses it immediately. Then the truth behind the missing presents comes out, and Springfield as a whole turns against the Simpsons. And just when it seems like the city has finally forgiven them, it's because they've decided to just rob the family of everything they're worth.

* CruelTwistEnding: Just when it seems the town has forgiven the Simpsons, we see the actual reason why the Springfieldians are at their house: [[spoiler:They're repossessing the Simpsons' belongings.]]
* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:The townspeople make off with all of the Simpson family's possessions (including the cat and dog) just so they can repay the debt]], but the part where The Simpsons play with a lone washcloth and the show's penchant for resetting their continuity (unless it's a character dying) prevented this from being too depressing.
