* Whether you [[BaseBreaker love or hate]] Bleeding Gums Murphy, "'Round Springfield" is one of those episodes that would make you cry a lot if you were Lisa. The "Jazz Man" song can also make one burst into tears.

** This just makes the ending even ''worse''. Homer just wanted to help Herbert, he did exactly what Herbert asked him to do; design a car that an Average Joe American type would want, that would appeal to blue-collar guys like Homer... and the result is an ugly, ugly car that cost a disproportionate ''fortune'' to make, leaving Herbert bankrupt. His last words on screen are to venomously spit at Homer that he doesn't ''have'' a brother, and you can just see how all of this has crushed Homer.

* A meta example for all those home media completists out there: Al Jean [[http://www.engadget.com/2015/04/12/the-simpsons-drops-disc-releases/ recently announced]] that, after fourteen years and eighteen seasons (Seasons 1-17, and Season 20), the series will cease production of DVD and Blu-ray sets. There is some good news to this: the DVD and Blu-Ray halt was done to make room for future seasons that can be streamed and downloaded, since more people are taking to the Internet to watch TV shows and movies rather than going to the movies or watching home media or their actual televisions.

* In "A Star is Burns", there's (the unfortunately named) ''Pukahontas'', the film Barney did about how his alcoholism has ruined his life (even worse when you realize that the season four episode "Mr. Plow" revealed that Barney was a Harvard-bound honors student studying for his SATs until Homer pressured him into trying beer, meaning that [[FridgeHorror Homer ruined his best friend's life]]). Despite the funny part where he mistakes Lisa's Girls' Scout meeting with an AA meeting, the rest of the film is very depressing and shows a dark side to Barney's alcoholism. Made worse by the fact that the prize Barney recieves is [[spoiler: a lifetime supply of Duff Beer.]]
