* BaitAndSwitch As the sub sails out of port, Captain Tenille leads the crew in singing a traditional sea shanty- no, it's not [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anchors_Aweigh "Anchor's Aweigh"]], it's [[Music/VillagePeople "In the Navy"]].



'''Milhouse''': No, I think she's ''hot''!! Sorry, it just slipped out.

* MassOhCrap: The WWI historical recreationist graduates all have one of these after they follow the example of the Naval Reserve graduates and the pastry school graduates by throwing their [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pickelhaube pickelhaube]] helmets into the air, causing them to come down points-first. They let out a big "Uh-oh!" just before the hats come down and [[GoryDiscretionShot the show cut to an ad break]].



* NewJobEpisode: Homer joins the Navy after losing his job at the plant. How he ever got his old job back is never explained.

--> '''Admiral 1''': Seaman Simpson, your actions have given the Navy a black eye from which it may never recover. I would throw the book at you, but I've been indicted on the Tailhook scandal. Goodbye!\\

* SpontaneousChoreography: The "In the Navy" sequence, including an appearance by Music/TheVillagePeople themselves (and, inexplicably, [[TransparentCloset Smithers]]). Where did Barney learn to dance like that?

* BrickJoke: Earlier in the episode, Homer's excuse of it being his first day at the plant failed because Smithers reminded Mr. Burns about Homer having been an employee for ten years. Near the end, Homer tried the same excuse. [[spoiler:Only this time it worked.]]

This is the fourth of four episodes produced by Al Jean instead of the current showrunner (in this case, Mike Scully). Jean would return as showrunner starting in season 13.

'''Capt. Tenille:''' We all want peace! But it's always just out of reach.\\
'''Homer:''' ''(sadly)'' Uh huh...\\
'''Capt. Tenille:''' So, what's the best way to get peace?\\
'''Homer:''' ''(uses his knife to retrieve some peas)'' With a knife!\\
'''Capt. Tenille:''' Exactly! Not with the olive branch, but the bayonet! Ha, ha, Simpson, you're like the son I never had.\\
'''Homer:''' And you're like the father I never visit.
