* Another meta example: Italian fans were devastated when Tonino Accolla (the Italian dubber of Homer as well as [[Disney/TheLionKing Timon]] and Creator/EddieMurphy) died after a long illness. Best exemplified by [[http://i.imgur.com/eK6GpS1.jpg this drawing]][[note]]Translation: "Homer, why are you so quiet today?"[[/note]].

** On the Simpsons Season 2 DVD set, when you select an episode, you'll be brought to a separate menu that has the Simpsons theme playing. For this episode, the theme is replaced with Dr. J Loren Pryor saying that Bart will have to repeat the fourth grade, overlapped with Mrs. Krabappel reading Bart's recent test scores.

* ''Love is a Many-Splintered Thing'', has Bart once again reuniting with Mary Spunckler (who by the way is his most reacurring love interest not counting Jessica Lovejoy's cameos). They actually hit off a proper relationship, but they break up. Bart is actually told that Mary's the best he could get, and he shouts cynically at Marge. Bart and Homer spend some time at a hotel, where other men are having relationship problems. As a big grand gesture, Bart gets the other men to sing a musical number for their wives and girlfriends. Mary is present but [[spoiler: doesn't take Bart back, as she has already moved on to a new boyfriend.]]

* "Stop! Or My Dog Will Shoot": When Santa's Little Helper becomes a police dog, he ends up becoming tense, and as a result bites Bart on the leg when he inadvertently startles him. Bart's left shaking and crying, wondering why ''his'' dog would bite him.

* A couple from "Brush With Greatness":
** Marge's flashback, wherein her art teacher from high school mocked and rejected her beautiful painting of Ringo Starr, though it's made better when her new teacher and Ringo Starr himself tell her that they love her art.
** The biggest one in the episode would probably be when Marge is busy trying to paint a portrait of a very uncooperative and rude Mr. Burns and Homer rushes in excitedly talking about the progress he's making in his diet (having gone on the diet after a humiliating incident at a local waterpark). Marge praises him, but Mr. Burns responds by mocking Homer's weight, telling him that he's "the fattest thing he's ever seen" and [[KickTheDog completely shattering his self-confidence in one fell swoop]]. This prompts [[TheWoobie Homer]] to tearfully head into the kitchen to binge on food, while Marge, [[MamaBear understandably furious]], chews out Mr. Burns and demands that he leave the house. Afterward, she smashes the portrait in fury and rushes to the kitchen to stop Homer from stuffing his face with whipped cream, before declaring that she gives up on seeing any beauty in Mr. Burns, with [[MoralEventHorizon this whole incident]] just cementing to her that he's just irredeemably evil and nothing can change that.

** During the Primetime Emmys' 2015 ReallyDeadMontage [[http://www.emmys.com/video/67th-emmy-awards-memoriam for the celebrities who died the previous year]], a slightly modified version of the chalkboard gag was used as the backdrop for Sam Simon's picture, with "Mrs. K." being replaced with "Sam".



** To make things even worse, Ned and Nelson say all of this all the while the two look at a photo of Edna on a table, which is right next to a photo of Ned's first deceased wife, Maude (who was killed off when Maggie Roswell quit after the producers refused to increase her pay to cover travel).

* This one is made more tragic in hindsight. In "Pranksta Rap", during the CreditsGag, Superintendent Chalmers is being paid by Alcatraaaz to do hip-hop. As the hip-hop artists laugh at him, Chalmers confides to Skinner, "I think they're making fun of me, but my wife is very sick." Seven seasons later, we learn that by "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts", she is dead.

* The ending of "Trust But Clarify" where Kent Brockman [[spoiler:regains his job as anchorman after a credibility scandal with Lisa's help]], and he approaches his replacement [[spoiler: Arnie Pie]], who graciously tells him, "Go ahead, take your chair. Do what you do best." Brockman then announces the lottery numbers and ebulliently announces "I'm back!" Brockman's replacement and sometimes rival [[spoiler: Arnie Pie]] being so kind to Brockman and the look of joy on Kent's face at the end makes this a happy tearjerker.
