Added DiffLines:

* DoubleStandardViolenceChildOnAdult: In the episode with George Bush (senior) as a guest character. The first act of the episode has Bart floating around the former president as a wannabe [[ComicStrip/DennistheMenaceUS Dennis The Menace]], simply causing havoc and Mr. Bush being unable to do more than fume while his wife is oblivious about Bart's antics and thinking he's a nice kid. When Bart shreds Mr. Bush's auto-biography, the former president has had enough and spanks Bart's bottom ''once'' before sending him home to "think about what he had done". Bart's response: go to Homer and tell him that Mr. Bush had hit him, making both guys (who had been chums during the first act) go on the (increasingly serious) warpath. At least ''once'' during the next two acts, Mr. Bush tells Homer that Bart deserved it because of destroying his auto-biography and other havoc and wants an apology, but Bart doesn't wants to give it and Homer doesn't care about it; Bush hit his kid, and Homer wants payback (hypocritical because, you know, the throttlings).

* DifferentInEveryEpisode: The First Church of Springfield does not appear often, but when it does, the sign out front has different text. In "Steal This Episode", for example, all it said was, "Joke?"

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: The subplot to "Today I Am a Clown", in which Homer hosts Krusty's show every Sunday (leading to him getting his own weekly show as a replacement for Krusty) could have been avoided. The reason for Homer hosting on Sunday is due to Krusty taken his religion more seriously, which does not allow working then, and Krusty refuses the suggestion of recording two shows on one day, but they never consider just airing a rerun (or just limiting Krusty's show to six days a week).
