* NoodleIncident: What happened between Grampa and Louie the barber? Obviously an argument of some sort, but over what?
--> '''Grampa''': The George Raft look is dead! I want an Audie Murphy!\\
'''Marge''': If you would just apologize to Louie, you could get your hair cut the way you wanted!\\
'''Grampa''': No apology! Not until he admits he's a ''jerk''!

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: Lisa will never get dumber with age due to being a female, but Bart is doomed to that fate. He just shrugs it off. Episodes set in the future just seem to show how much a deadbeat person Bart turns out to be.


Added DiffLines:

* ItRunsInTheFamily: The Simpson Gene is explained to be an hereditary gene that gradually turns a Simpson member into a dumb moron as they age. Lisa finds out through the female side of the family that the gene only affects the males, proven by how the females all have successful careers in medicine and being realtors for growing companies.

%%* HarmlessFreezing* HarmlessFreezing: Jasper is frozen solid by the Kwik-E-Mart's freezer, and when he thaws out, he's completely unharmed, with absolutely no problems with hypothermia, frostbite, or shock.



* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Jasper defrosts and leaves the freezer, spoiling Apu's chance to sell him to the Rich Texan (or at least his head). Following this is a gag where the Kwik-E-Mart is remade into a strip joint called the Nud-E-Mart, complete with Apu and Sanjay naked behind a podium and a bike post outside the entrance.

* RiddleForTheAges: What ''was'' in the unlabelled can? Otto suggests it's ThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow.



* StockLateralThinkingPuzzle: The brain teaser that sets off the episode is comparable to one as Lisa tries to figure out what the last symbol in a series of six would be. She even notes that the symbols don't appear to be anything like Egyptian hieroglyphics or any characters of the like. At the end, she finds that the symbols are made of the numbers 1-6 fused together with a mirrored image of each number.
