* BigNo: A variation. When Snake sees his car, Li'l Bandit, is next up for auction, he exclaims, "Oh, ''no''!"
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Implied with Cookie Kawn, who's number one on the west side and wants to keep it that way. She cheerfully greets Marge, then warns her to stay away from the west side, and then suspiciously asks Nick and Gil if they are talking about the west side, when in fact it was Nick talking about how long he thought Marge would last at Red Blazer Realty.



* BrickJoke: Kirk's arm is sliced off by Snake's piano wire. When he's later seen in the unemployment line at the end of the episode, he has a cast on that same arm.
* CannotTellALie: Marge can't bring herself to lie to people and ends up getting fired.



* Catchphrase: Nick Callahan, one of the realtors, has one: "Boo-yah!" He says this twice, first when he manages to sell the Whitman place (which Gil had been trying to sell for 21 years), and again when he learns Marge sold the Murder House.



* ExactWords: Marge says at the end that it would have been nice to bring home at least one paycheck. Homer reassures her that she will, as he drives up to the unemployment office. He didn't say she had to still be employed to bring a paycheck home.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Nick's comment of "I give her a week." Hutz later tells Marge that if she fails to sell a house in her first week at Red Blazer Realty, she'll be fired.



* JerkAss: Lionel definitely qualifies given the fact he just gave Marge a jacket saying "Fired" meaning she's fired.

to:

* ICallItVera: Snake's car, which he calls Li'l Bandit.
* ImagineSpot: Marge imagines the dove on Ned's check telling her she has to tell the Flanders' the truth about the Murder House. The dove lets the branch fall from its beak, says, "You've got to tell them the truth, Marge. The truth!", then the branch flies back into its beak.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Marge feels she can't lie to people about the houses they buy, even tries to talk some people out of moving house altogether, and even though the Flanders' tell Marge they'll be happy in the Murder House, she tells them she won't feel right with herself until she returns their deposit. Lisa, however, commends Marge for not compromising her integrity.
* JerkAss: Lionel Hutz definitely qualifies given the fact he just gave Marge a jacket saying "Fired" meaning she's fired.fired.
* TheLostLenore: Homer asks Skinner if he wants to drag race, only for Skinner to sadly remark that his high school sweetheart, Debbie Sue, was killed in a drag-racing accident. Homer tries to reassure him by saying, "It'll be fun." It turns out to be the worst thing he could say, as that's what Debbie Sue said before said accident.



* MassOhCrap: Marge, the Flanders' Homer and Snake all have one when Snake's car is about to crash into the Murder House. When Wiggum's police cruiser crashes into the house as well, the house collapses.



* WhosLaughingNow: When Johnny D's gates are sold at the police auction, Snake laughs at him. He has the last laugh when the next item turns out to be Snake's car.

* YouDidTheRightThing: Bart tries to console Marge after she's fired by telling her she did this. Eventually (his words).

* CallBack: The people in the unemployment line besides Kirk and Marge are Larry Burns (Mr. Burns' son from "Burns Baby Burns"), Lurleen Lumpkin (from "Colonel Homer," who looks just as worn-out and drug-addled as she did in "Marge vs. The Monorail"), George H.W. Bush (from "Two Bad Men"[[note]]The season seven episode where UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush and his wife, Barbara, move in across the street from The Simpsons and Homer and Bart play pranks on him[[/note]]), and the redheaded hippie writer (modeled after ''Simpsons'' writer George Meyer) from "The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie Show" who was fired for objecting to adding Poochie the dog in a vain attempt at revitalizing ''The Itchy and Scratchy Show''.

** The "Jealous Jockey Murders" that happened in the house Marge sells to the Flanders. We're not told the details as to what happened or how it was instigated, other than the intended victim Mrs. Astor survived by hiding in the butler's pantry and there was a "torso heap" in the living room. Whatever else happened got the home dubbed "The Murder House."
