Added DiffLines:

* DependingOnTheWriter: Some episodes are very pro-democracy and even patriotic in tone for a show that takes joy in mocking politics and political spectacle at every opportunity ("Mrs. Lisa Goes to Washington" for example) while others depict the US government as incompetent and even directly antagonistic ("The Frying Game" and to a lesser extent "The Cartridge Family" for example). It should come as no surprise that some of the most anti-government episodes are written by John Swartzwelder, a right-libertarian and a member of the NRA.

Added DiffLines:

* DomesticApplianceDisaster: Parodied when Homer has to cook. Wisely, he just prepares a bowl of cereals. But as soon as he pours (cold) milk into the bowl, it ''catches fire''.
** In the "Stark Raving Dad " episode, Bart puts his red cap into the white laundry and all Homer's shirts turn pink. It leads Homer to be judged as a [[PinkMeansFeminine defiant mind]] at work when he wears one - and to be put in an asylum.

* DumbMuscle: Subverted with Ox, a member of Abe Simpson's old Army squad in WorldWar2. He comes off as this trope initially, and his [[NomDeGuerre nickname]] reinforces it. However, it turns out he's the only one who knows what a {{Tontine}} is. It also turns out the name is short for "Oxford".

In one scene, when Marge leaves the room, Lisa grabs Bart by his collar and prepares to pour syrup on his eyes, only to put everything back the second she reenters.

** Any Halloween special will have the Simpsons theme played in a Halloween style.

to:

** Any Halloween special will have the Simpsons theme played in a Halloween style. From 1990 to 2003, it was typically a harpsichord arrangement usually with eerie whistling, played at the same tempo as the normal theme. Beginning in 2005, the main Halloween end credits theme was a slower, somber string-based version. A couple of episodes used a variant parodying ''TheAddamsFamily'' theme song.


Added DiffLines:

** A number of episodes in recent years usually feature a custom theme tune; the normal credits theme isn't used very often lately.

** When they made a {{Parody}} of ''TheDaVinciCode'', Lisa entered a place that had a sign forbidding it. Under it, there was another sign alternatively allowing it, stating it was a sign, not a cop.
